    My question is simple ... How website with "no" keywords gain popularity ? How the users find them ? Is just advertising, or is luck too ? For example Pinterest. I don't see them advertising with google adword or else :D . I saw them in BHW first . So is this the only way ? If someone share your website in big community and after that everything else is history ?

    Pinterest is entirely integrated with Facebook. You add the app, then you and all your friends are suddenly following each other on the site. A form of viral popularity.

    It helps a lot. I have developed a couple large-scale community sites, some integrated and some not. The ones that allowed users to login via Facebook/Twitter, automatically posted activity to their social networks, etc. grew much faster.

    Facebook and Twitter have become a "must have" for community sites to let the users interact through them. So no community site will go without them.

    The reason why Pinterest grew so viral was because of its simplicity to use and the fact that it used Facebook and Twitter logins which made it easy for its users to use the site. :)
