    So a lot of people (myself included!) are/were saying that Pinterest is good for backlinks as well.
    Each (re)pin is a n0follow AND a d0follow link to your site, right?
    So getting a few pins with 200+ repins should give you tons of nice links, right?
    Google is paying attention to 'social signals', so that should be good as well, right?

    well.... I am yet to see any backlink from Pinterest being picked up by google. MajesticSEO and Ahrefs are both not showing anything either.
    So I did something I should have done first thing when talking about this; disabling javascript and checking Pinterest.... -> no pins.
    So it seems google isn't seeing any of those fancy d0follow links you are creating... Yet I see all kinds of Pinterest stuff/tools/services advertised as being good for SEO.
    Seems plain wrong.

    Any (counter) ideas? maybe someone who IS seeing backlinks from Pinterest being picked up by google?

    I was seeing them up until about a month ago when they just started to disappear from my Google webmaster stats. I dont know what changed but since then I haven't detected a single one.
