    Hi William..Thank you so much for this informative and inspirative thread.
    I have read this thread from page one to 27 and I think this thread is one of the best pinterest guides on BHW.

    By the way, I have 2 questions for you:
    1. I live at an asia country but I'm targeting USA women. Do you think I should register using USA proxy? I'm asking this because I heard that geo location is very important in gettng traffic from pinterest.
    2. After reading the whole pages on this thread, I can conclude that: In order to succeed with pinterest, we have to join as much as group boards and pin on those group boards..We can buy group boards invites on fiverr. Am I correct?
    Please kindly answer my questions above..
    Thanks in advance :)

    hello, fellas.

    i met this thread yesterday
    i have been reading this page until page 14 for now. (will continue later. this is for leaving footprint purpose)

    previously i was reading someone post regarding pinterest traffic for adsense (i believe it was @Luka19 ) and i inspired by him and start creating my own pinterest account.

    after around 29 days, here is my statistic :

    statistic.jpg
    *i am not promoting my site. so i hide them.

    BUT , here is my google analytics stats :

    bruh.jpg


    question :

    2. any suggestion why is my analytics shows different stats with my pinterest stats ?

    thank you

    It's possible that it will effect it however I have no way of confirming that. There are many methods for promoting on Pinterest. joining group boards is just one method. There are lots of threads on here for exhanging boards if that is what you decide to do.

    Best you ask him if you are using that method.

    umm sorry, what i want to say is, i was inspired by him and start to using more organic method, closer to William's method.

    i am creating only 2 board , posting daily for 1 month and as we can see the traffic stats is high.
    actually i am asking to everyone here, but i think the thread starter has a capability and i am expecting him to answer in his point of view :)

    Hey I am doing follow unfollow method; I prefer it from board joining method so don't try and talk me out of it plz :).

    I would like to know how I go about scaling up while avoiding bans. I have 1 website and currently just 2 accounts which make pins pointing to the website but how do I scale up the operation without people in the niche catching on that I am just spamming my 1 website over many accounts?

    Should I do it in a tier structure and keep those two and just have many others repinning only from those 2 accounts or repins of repins of repins? Not sure what is best to avoid bans whilst increasing accounts exponentially.

    How many of your own pins are you pinning per day? I have heard anything over 50 pins per day and it just becomes pointless because Pinterest will just limit your reach.

    When you're pinning different images to the same link, do you also change the descriptions every time?

    50 pins per day!!!? lol that's insane. I am pinning 1 pin per day mostly at the moment but that is mainly because I am working on other stuff but I would never pin 50. Maybe 1 every few hours. But I think I might just leave the boards at maybe 20-30 pins and just follow unfollow and let users find them that way once they reach that number of pins.

    I think I landed to late for this.. as this is a general feeling I get for every method. I don't know if it's only a feeling coming from my frustration and depression but the more methods and questions/answers I read, the more hard it seams.. not hard in the way it can't be achieved, but it seems hard in a way that's not for everybody, especially for somebody with almost 0 knowledge, small budget and little spare time.. but anyway.. THANKS for sharing it's up to me to take action!

    I am part of a Pinterest group on FB and most members pin 30-50 pins daily with Tailwind, a few at even 100 pins. One pin per day? you have a long way to go buddy

    I think by pinning he probably means creating a fresh, new, original pin image + article/lander , while most people use the term 'pinning' too loosely and actually refer to repining.

    Or are those 30-50-100 pins you talk about actual freshly designed images + articles? That would be quite the content production, even gary v would be impressed :)

    I pump out a couple recipes per day. For each recipe, I create 5 new images each with different descriptions targeting specific keywords. I forgot which podcast I watched but Pinterest actually encourages creating different images and descriptions per post... they consider this as fresh content on their platform.

    Hello William,

    Thank you for the wonderful thread.
    The info and tips given here is gold.

    I have a few questions that I would like to ask.
    I have a 2 year old pinterest account which is not active anymore. I currently have 3 boards I created myself and have 12 big boards(multiple niches)I’m a collaborator in.
    I’m planning to link pinterest to my website which I will monetize with adsense.

    I was wondering, do I pin the articles on my website to only my boards or do I post them on the other big boards as well?

    I’m not too sure whether I should remove those boards from my profile as some are unrelated to my niche.

    Hey! I came up to your threads and all the valuable info you share and I took so much notes, thank you for all the time and effort you put to answer all of the questions!
    I would like to ask, is it worth it to grow pinterest accounts for traffic? I would like to use pinterest as a free traffic source that's why I am asking, i see a lot of people to complain that they are
    ranking pins, but they are almost not getting link clicks from that. Would like to know, if that's true, just to know, if Pinterest game is for me.
    Thanks for answer in advance!

    This is very interesting. I am a bit overwhelmed as I started to learn about this world around a year ago, still a lot to fit into my mind. I will probably give it a GO! Thanks for sharing.

    Please confirm your question.

    I won't try and talk you out of it, different methods work for different things and allow different outcomes. Whatever is working for you and if any of the info I have shared here helps with that then all the better :)

    I have never really scaled this up to the point where I have had to worry about that so I am the wrong person to ask. I have never even used proxies. You will have to make the judgments on what frequency is best based on the places you pin. Making a few tiers is always a good idea. The more you can do the better the results will be.

    It really depends, maybe they will limit the reach however the pins will still be visible all over the group boards they are going out to. Whatever boards I pin on are littered with my pins all over the place so just that viability is what some clients want. imagine having political clients and having t-shirts or buttons with their face or message on them, having it in front of people all day every day is a powerful thing even if they are pinning them or saving them. It really all depends on what you want to achieve.

    I do 90 a day per account and have never had a problem. they all seem to show up and be visible so that works for me.

    Well it's still useful depending on what you are advertising. try checking out this method I just shared https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/method-making-money-with-etsy-fiverr-and-facebook.1093253/ it might work well for you based on what you said.

    I am personally referring to pinning through an app but I agree the term is used loosely. the pins are the same but they are not being repinned, just set up as a new pin, it seems to work well for some applications.

    Thank you and my pleasure. Do both, but start with your boards to have a nice place where everything is located. Yes remove them if you are planning on using it as a business account.

    90

    My pleasure. yes and no. there are lots of more efficient ways to drive traffic but as a way to get some exposure and good social signals it is a good investment. lots of people dont use it correctly but i agree with many that traffic is not as much as it used to be.

    My pleasure, good luck!

    do you think it's possible to bank with a quite popular account? I'm talking about affiliates
