    I have talked about the apps I use in this thread and the other Pinterest threads I started. Take a look at those and you should find the info you are looking for.

    Followers don't mean shit. when you say top page what page are you referring to? do you mean their pins or do you mean on the people page they show up at the top?

    I'll be honest I didn't even know about the 200k thing, must have never read that part. I dont have any accounts that have reached that yet so it's not something I am worried about or trying to think how to avoid.

    Maybe they are just new accounts. Lots of sites give a lot of weight to new accounts or listings. Maybe the algorithm includes a certain number of each on the first page. x many that are big, x many that are medium size and x many that are brand new. That might be an explanation for it. Or maybe a pin or something the accounts did got a lot of interactions so based on the limited actions they have done the average interactions on their account is really high and thus they rank higher. These are all assumptions.

    So i started this pinterest stuff nearly a fortnight ago, or rather that's when the first pins went live. the traffic has been consistently and steadily rising and yesterday i hit 274 new users on my site, the problem is i'm not able to monetize it properly. Sales=0, what i'm i doing wrong, the site is up and running and looks great so if you wouldn't mind helping me milking this cash cow, PM me. Thanks for the AMA thread, learned a lot.

    Hello, what can you say about using hash tags on Pinterest ? Is it as useful as it is on Twitter or Instagram?

    Yes they are good. The OP mentioned it on another of his thread called Ranking pins on pinterest. He uses 3 of them in every pin

    I dont know it has never happened to me. that would be a question for the support but to be honest if you ask them that they may monitor your account to make sure you are not abusing their system. I pin 90 a day to be safe per account and have never had any problems. But who knows you could pin one and get banned, it all depends on what you are pinning, where from, any links in it etc. My opinions are just that...opinions.

    No I have not tried any of those I'm afraid so I cant give an opinion on them.

    Yes very much so, check out this thread https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/method-ranking-pins-on-pinterest.1011251/

    Has Pinterest refined its algorithm to the point that irrelevant repins don't matter anymore? I ask because a lot of SMM panels offer Pinterest repins, but no ability to control the board niche they're repinned to.

    I don't know. It's a good question though as I know what you mean by irrelevant places that people pin. To be honest I think it's fine because I cant see how it would recognize a pin about camping in a board about back gardens for example. I think if the pins that the SMM panels are offering dont get any traction its because of the fact that the account is probably blacklisted or its a bot with no reach. The location of a pin only matters in the sense that if you are pinning a pin in a relevant place it will get more relevant traffic and interactions.

    can amazon affiliate direct links lead to an account ban? Is it necessary to add website to pinterest profile?
