    What methods have you tried to monetize pinterest with?

    There are plenty of guides in the "Make Money Section".

    All I do is change the clickthru on images to my own sites and comment with my sites in some repins, but I use bots to help me out though.

    I'm using PinBlaster for Pinterest.

    Read through entire thread as Pinterest traffic interests me: JW:

    1. How crucial is picture quality for followers, re-pins, and clickthroughs to your money site? Since pinterest is solely pictures I am assuming it is a popularity contest for clicks/re-pins based on which pictures in each niche are the prettiest/highest resolution?

    2. When starting off, is the best way to go about things, is to be building a few boards solely off re-pinning things in your niche and then following those people -- then waiting till you get like 100 followers before pinning any of your own stuff on your boards? Then later changing all your original re-pins urls to your own?

    3. Again when starting, is one account manually doing things until you start getting followers the best? Or can you start lightly using bots across multiple accounts from the get go?

    4. The repin and url swap seems like a good idea. Have you had any issues either with the image not entirely matching up to your money site targeted article/product? Or the original pinner of that pin reporting you for image hijacking?

    Thanks

    Hey guys,

    Sorry for the hiatus. I've traveling a bit these past few days to try and enjoy what left of my summer.

    Anyways, let's get on with the update :) :
    • Spun 5 articles, each passing copyscape
    • Ordered 5 articles
    • Created 20 comments and spintaxed them for use
    • Gained followers, created boards, added descriptions, and gave each new Pinterest account a profile picture

    Hey jackrice,

    I can't offer you much advice because, I don't know how you are monetizing the traffic.

    What I can tell you is that you shouldn't be using one account for multiple niches. You should create one account for one specific niche to help get better targeted traffic.

    Hey InsanelySan,

    1. Picture quality is important and you should always try to repin / pin quality images. No one wants to see a low quality picture being spammed on their news feed. Higher the quality the better imo.
    2. Here's what I do when I create a new account (I do this for the first 5 days of a new account):
      • Upload a profile picture
      • Write a description
      • Create 5 - 10 boards with a little description for each
      • Repin 100~ / day without any clickthrus to my websites
      • Follow 50 people / day
      • Comment 20 - 30 / day
    3. I've had issues in the past, but that occurred when I was repinning 1000/account/day. People don't like to see a whole news feed being blown up with pins not going to links.
      Since I've lowered my repins / day, I haven't had any issues with this.
      Just don't repin an image of a car and have it lead to a makeup site.

    Hey bootyboy,

    Ask you question here in this thread, it's the only place I check. :)

    Hey rschmitz,

    I grow my follower count with a combination of daily repins, likes, comments, and following others.

    Hello all,

    I hope you're all doing well. :)

    Over the past few days I've written 10 new articles for my websites. Each of these articles are based off of high paying keywords. I hope I will be able to increase my CPC with these articles.

    Unfortunately my CTR has been a bit lower than it usually is these past few days. It's around a 1 - 2% right now. :(

    Here's my earnings from the last few days:

    Here is my total follower count from all my Pinterest accounts:

    Good job, I have a single mother who raised me for 21 years by her self, my dad died when I was 3 months old.. All my mom does is work her ass off so I could get an education.. I'm also doing the same thing you are, making money online so I can support my mom for everything she's done for me.

    Good luck on your journey, this will be a good one! Don't give up, motivation is key.

    Hey guys,

    Sorry that my updates have been so random. I just got back from a long cottage trip and I've been working from my phone for a long time now (Connecting to the VPN with an iPhone App).

    My daily earnings have been slowly increasing and I'm almost at $10 / day again.

    I've been working on ranking my main authority site for keywords and right now my one article is stuck at 20 - 22 on Google.

    I'm still adding more content onto my authority sites on a weekly basis, but I've been focusing a lot more on the authority sites social media accounts (Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook).
