    I've been a member for two years, basically without earning anything ever since I joined.. reason for it; Information overload syndrome until I finally took action at the end of 2014. If someone asked me to give an advice to any beginner it would be to choose a method, start with it for at least 3 months.. and don't deviate into other methods, just START be consistent.

    As of right now I've been making at least $5/day(week days), weekend I make $10, yesterday I made $15 with Adsense; just depends how much effort I put into it.

    Keep in mind that I started pushing/using with Pinterest last month although I've had this account for about a year, February and I earned $160 in 28 days.

    Pinterest Setup
    Accounts: 1 (Nurturing a new account to expand earnings)
    Followers: 23,000
    Boards: 27 (6 being my own)
    Pin hours: 8am, 2pm, 9pm
    Pins per login: 20-40 pins (Older accounts can take massive hammering)
    Website Setup
    Websites: 1
    Articles: 15
    Niche: Health
    CPC: $0.15 - $0.30
    Ads: 3 ads (I often move them around to experiment)
    Design: Minimalistic
    Suggestions
    1. Some days I don't pin at all to make it look natural.
    2. Would you repin the images you post.. If no, don't bother.
    3. Can't stress this enough.. design for mobile, 100%.
    Info
    I will post my stats weekly, once I reach $25 per day I will ask this thread closed, start a new website, and just rinse and repeat the process.

    15 articles, but every pin always links to one specific article, with the menu at the top they can choose to go to another category if they choose.

    The reason that I only link to one article is because for me it does not matter whether or not they enjoy it, all I want is them to click the ads, but the content is still engaging.

    Update number 1
    I wanted to test whether or not I'd get a higher CPC simply by targeting high paying keywords, so I got a new article.. courtesy of cobaltblue87 for the amazing high quality article, it targeted a keyword of $4.50 with high competition, while the other page I was linking to was low competition and the CPC sat at $2.22, an old article written a while back. My CPC went from $0.15c, to $0.44c.. Today I did not do any pinning, I earned so far $7 with 60% less clicks than I normally get, If I pinned at those times I mentioned at my first post I'd earn at least 70% more. Just a simple update guys, hope you enjoy the information.

    Hey man, I used to make great money with Adsense and Pinterest until Pinterest blocked my URL, I was at around 30 bucks a day.Now I barely make 2.

    Just though I would give you the heads up.

    You should buy some private proxies and build some more accounts.The more accounts the more people you can follow daily.

    I don't understand. Does adsense allow pinterest traffic only? Does adsense allow website without organic traffic?

    I have like 9 accounts with total of 40k followers, but don't know what to do with them, what method to use to bring in more traffic. I tried repinning with my secondary accounts from my main account where I pined image from my money site but that didn't work for me.

    @iBrazilian, what hours do you pin, can you give more information about the hours, most of my traffic is from USA, but don't know what time to pin.

    Thanks and good luck with the journey, subscribed.

    Sadly I know about that, I don't have the money to invest in private proxies, haven't received my payment yet but as soon as I do I will grow some accounts and leave my master alone.

    Adsense allows any form of traffic as long as they comply with their TOS.

    Pinterest traffic is one of the most secure traffic from all of the social networks.. that's just my opinion from what I've read before.

    The only reason you should grow your followers base is so that you can grow your own boards, but other than that as long as you're in some big group boards then you can get a lot of traffic.

    I mentioned my pinning hours at the very top table but they are: early in the morning before people usually go to work, 1-4pm, and anytime after 7pm is best since just about most people are home or on their phones.

    Pinterest users are most active from 5-7 PM

    And I usually just pin around 30 images per day, and I make sure that they are attractive to the 40 year old women on the site.
    I pin the url on master account and I repin from master to all my other ones.

    I have 25 accounts I manually control.

    Not using a bot is the key to pinterest, using a bot is worthless and spammy looking.

    You can't say that they are most active just between 5-7, that's a very very small percentage.. they are most active at night, preferably after 8.. ask your friends or family at what time they're more likely to use the internet, especially woman.. and it also does depend on the niche.

    Thanks, keep updated, it'll contain great information.. I'll share later some great twists that I use to generate higher traffic.

    On my analytics every day it shows I get an increase of 30 percent from 5-7 sometimes till 8

    and then it drops pretty dramatically after that

    Weekends I usually get traffic all day and night till like 11


    Today was actually a pretty good day for traffic boriss, I have been working on rebuilding my pins on all my accounts and I made about 5 bucks today and got about 300 unique visits .Not much compared to how much I used to make but If I can get it back to 10 bucks daily I will be happy as fuck.

    Don't want to turn this thread into offtopic, but I understand you Snoopy. It's pretty hard to grow accounts and then you get hammered by they algo or something and all your months work goes down the drain.
