    Hey everyone thanks for the posts. I do want to add however that there have been a few questions posted that do not really make that much sense or that no one outside of pinterest can answer so please be sure to have common sense when posting a question as I have limited time for this at is it.

    Also I notice a lot of people trying to pitch in, i would ask those people create AMA threads of their own if they think they have something to offer in terms of Pinterest content. I would hate to ask anyone to stop on the basis of thread hijacking and I'm sure people are wanting to help out. however if they feel they can answer questions I invite them to start their own threads as not to confuse any other members. Thank you.

    I have had a lot of people reach out to me recently and ask to be introduced as experts on some of my ama threads just to increase their visibility and perceived experience in that given field to offer guides and services. Well that is not going to happen. if people are trying to tout their wears they can do it in their own threads. regardless of if someone is trying to sell something or make themselves look like an authority I would appreciate it if those peopel would create their own threads. Thanks ;)

    I'm not sure why it would be a problem

    I'm sure you can request it, if they do or not is another matter.

    If you find one feel free to share it with us.

    I dont think that is possible I'm afraid, but I am not 100% sure as I have not looked into it. You would have to reach out to the website owners in question to ask them what effort it takes.

    I would replace both personally just to be safe.

    It is possible you re trying to do too much too quick, if they are new accounts let them rest for a while, also you may not want to do the same actions from the same IP, I have never had a problem but it has been a while.

    If I share hidden secrets they wont be hidden anymore.

    I'm sure you do but why you think I will know the issue is beyond me.

    How can I grow big with NBA basketball niche? I quickly got 9k followers and 300k impressions monthly but barely 300 people click my website or articles of my website. (I follow nobody and never used tailwind)

    Best

    Share relevant content for that niche. This is the best way to grow an account on Pinterest. Impressions to clicks are always diabolical on Pinterest.

    When you make up numbers and post some BS, please take a moment to think

    What part of the users post did you find to be BS in your opinion?

    I have not used their ad platform I'm afraid, nor Stripe.

    Any advice for someone who wants to use Pinterest to drive traffic to other social channels (mainly IG). I have a bunch of original content from IG and would like to cross-promote on Pinterest. Right now, I just have one board for each IG account and just post my IG content on those boards with a linkback to the original IG post.

    Any other stuff I can do or creative ways to use it?

    My advice would be dont. use other social media to drive traffic to pinterest but not the other way around.
    pinterest is not known for traffic generation

    I would sell invites to boards. that would be the fastest easiest way to make money from a standing start.

    H there, no I don't sell any services here on BHW. I'm sure if you post a job in the HAF section though you will find some good people.

    What should be the interval between posting of two pins? How many pins can I post in a day so that I may not be spamming? How to find top boards of my niche?

    Small questions: I am using Pinterest for about 3 weeks. Created several boards and pinning other pins and own pins daily. I have around 10 articles on the website and I just create pins for those articles.
    I don't see any traffic at all. It's oke because I am doing it for like 3 weeks, just were wondering even the pins from others get no clicks. Get some impressions here and there. So I read somewhere that you can create viral pins very fast. Doesn't look like it. Is it normal to see no results after 3 weeks?

    How can I validate if I am in a good niche? I feel like the niche is too small and highly competitive.

    Do I need like 5 new articles per week or can I create tons of pins for a small amout of blog articles?
