    I`m on the net from a long time, but every time the opportunity has passed by me. So i decided to try out Pinterest.
    I made my first account and a subdomain for my blog 2 weeks a go and until 3 day a go i made 5 account. End BAG!! Friday i wake up and I told to my, NOW is time to act so i bought Pin Blaster.
    What happened in last 3 days:
    - I`w moved the blog from subdomain to domain
    - I made another 5 accounts
    - I discovered which picture brings me visitor... a lot of visitor ( good for bad days to repin`it )
    - I use ads.sens and amazon :
    Ad.sense Earnings:
    Mar 9- Apr 5: €11.33
    Apr 6 : €0.29
    Apr 7: €7.87
    Amazon Earnings: nothing

    Here is my Pinterest stats:
    April 8
    Number of accounts: 12
    Total followers: 251
    Total following: 2770


    Future plan:
    - To make another 100 accounts on Pinterest, but i`m not decided, if i will buy the accounts, i will buy twitter account to make myself the Pinterest accounts.
    - To lower the niche of the photos that i pin because that how i can blast the pins in the exact category

    Sorry for my english and my grama , but i'm a little bit dizzy from the last night and i hope that you will watch my journey.
    I will update every day!

    *UPDATE
    If YOu want to use the images from pinterest don`t pin th photos from Popular, go to a category an use that images that have a lot of repins and the image var pined in the last hour

    congrats on the good start.

    do you mean that you repin popular photos? on your pinterest account? how would that help you?
    OR do you mean that you copy the photo and put it on your website and pin it?

    I too have been running a few Pinterest tests. Mostly, I utilize Amazon products for a niche of mine. They are sent to a review site then on to Amazon. Pretty solid CTR....been seeing good enough numbers to start scaling up and covering more niches. I target the female demographic between mid 20s-30s.

    They are very different social networks. There are pro's and cons for both. Pinterest is still in beta for IM if you like.

    that's not bad at all compared to me.
    So you got ad.sense everyday and 100 clicks.
    your follower count is by pin/category? or by account?

    by comparison, I got:
    103 followers (207 with 2 boards combined?)
    1160 following.

    I spent money to buy repins on fivvr - and thats a total waste of money. I thought 50 repins will put the pin in "popular" but for some reason it obviously didnt work.

    0 clicks

    So far according to what i have read on BHW, copying popular pins seem to work for getting traffic. however, doesn't the popular pin have to be somehow related to your niche/topic? also, isnt there some kind of a copy right problem?

    I got exactly 99 click yesterday on clickbank and i don`t sell nothing that`s why i`m disappointed. On ad.sense i don`t get much clicks but i make every day new pinterest accounts i reached today to 41 accounts, after i posted the yesterday stats, and i wanna make another 10 accounts.
    My followers are from account i think ( i use pin blaster and i don`t know which followers count the program )

    About the popular pins .. i don`t know how it`s marked as "popular".

    Probably your pins don`t get to the category wall that's why you didn't get any click.

    I make article related to the photos and i always add the source page
