    Would posting niche pictures be enough, or do I need to watermark my images to get traffic to my website?

    If you don't want your images get copied and pasted... you can do to watermark your images before uploading them to Pinterest.

    This is up to you.

    More images + more hastags = more traffic.

    You don't need to watermark your images to get traffic, but it can be good particularly if people re-pin your images without the link to your site. To get click through traffic from pinterest, you need to have images that give people a reason to click through. A nice picture on its own won't do, but if there's a dress I like and want to find out where to get it from, or a picture of a dessert that I want the recipe for I'll click through etc.

    I've been debating whether to start watermarking some of my images. I've read that there are some on pinterest that take real exception to people doing this, so it might increase the amount of people flagging your pins. There are some real prolific pinners that watermark, and it doesn't seem to hurt them. Yet I know that I'm far less likely to pin an image that has a watermark on it - most of them look like shit or are too large.

    I have yet to see anyone watermark a website URL in my niche - instead they are all one lines, like "pinned by BethHotCakes" Obviously this would be a bad route to take. Your account might get banned, so all your watermarked images that are floating around lead back to a dead account. Yet if you include your website address, doesn't that look really spammy?

    you simply don't need to do that
    they will consider it as spam
    in pinterest , its best that you have a clear image
    then the person will click on it and get redirected to your website

    It won't hurt. But niche relevant pictures are already a plus
