    I doubt they allow it, however there are plenty of options available for doing it.

    How do you drive trafic to your content website from Pinterest ? This is still not clear to me :
    1/ That it is worth it facing facing investing time in other major SM or blog platform
    2/ That it is more complicated/less obvious to drive trafic than other SM

    One of my pins got 1200 views and only 8 saves and 3 visits to my shop.

    Is these numbers are very bad? How could I to improve?

    Pinterest is a great source of traffic. When you have worked it out and know what works for your particular items it can be a gold mine,.

    How old is the pin? What is the pin about? Was it pinned to a relevant place? How are you tracking those visits? Pinterest traffic is renowned for not showing up as Pinterest and shows up in analytics as half a dozen different things.

    It need to be one specific niche? Or you can create different boards. Thanks for your time.

    - The pin is 2 months old.
    - I have reppined it to other boards. They were relative to the niche.
    - I tracked in Pinterest analytics

    That's totally up to you and what you are promoting but generally I like to keep the accounts niche specific.

    Have you tested any other pins. you should really do a lot of testing to see what conversions you get and what works best.

    Hey William, why do websites get blocked and how to avoid? What's your take on that?

    Yes websites do get blocked all the time because the people promoting them have no clue about discretion or common sense. If someone goes on there and spams without thinking about it and at least posting in the right places and not taking the piss then they will get shut down.

    It's never happened to me or any of my clients so it's not something I worry about. as long as a user does not take liberties they should be fine.

    You can do that but you could also just pin the items with all of those accounts individually and rank for any hashtag/keyword search you wanted just by blasting out in large numbers. The followers dont matter for this, but it will help get traction on some of the pins if more people see them and potentially repin. If you have some decent accounts you could ask to join networking and sharing groups and tribes. this way you can put out the content you want others to share and you can share relevant content of theirs.

    well...most importantly, follow/unfollow makes virtually no sense on pinterest. Actually it's a bit like buying followers on Facebook - it will ultimately hurt you.

    If you have a niche weightloss and another totally different niche can they be under the same account? So you would have a board for weightloss and a board for say best matresses, does that work?

    My pleasure

    Exactly, following and unfollowing in practically worthless on Pinterest.

    Yeah sure, there are lots of people that pin all sorts of stuff.

    Does Pinterest need SIM Cards like Twitter?

    I registered an account on Pinterest without Phone verification.

    Will phone verification come AFTER with the USAGE of the account just like Twitter? OR I can do my job with email?

    I heard they are sending you a PIN for password reset. Is this send to email?

    ALSO

    Can I assign 5 Pinterest accounts per 1 proxy -OR- 3 accounts the most will be better?

    Thanks in advance...

    Honestly I dont know much about the need for phone verification. I have not had to do it and have not had to make an account for a long time. I dont use proxies and I have over a dozen accounts I use on my home IP. I think it's more the actions you do rather than the location you do it from that matters.

    Does following/unfollowing work for gaining followers or is it just pretty much key to get into group boards?

    Having a few followers to make a profile look normal is a good idea but followers on Pinterest are not worth the hassle. There is little point in following and unfollowing in Pinterest. You don't get anything near the same results you would get on Twitter or Instagram.
