    i haven't been with pinterest long. i pinned for awhile and id get like 10 pins, everyone else would have like 80,000 or 120,000. i just kept pinning whatever i posted on my sites

    i used pinpinterest.com till the trial went out, theres another one i dont remember what it was. for anyone that doesnt know it follows people for you, comments, invites people to your boards. i also followed anyone and boards in my niche, for maybe an hour a couple times

    i understand everyone says its mostly chicks, but its got to work for niches guys like

    one day i noticed i was getting alot of traffic on my self improvement blog, more than the just mostly social media i do. which i dont get more than a 100 hits a day usually and never have for years on any of my sites. ive just recently started actually learning about keywords and optimization

    the repins i was getting was an infographic, and it was mostly chicks. i looked at them, followed the ones with big boards, followed their boards

    if you have the right niche relating to women yea its easy, they repin anything and everything, theyll put anything on their boards. im not experienced with pinterest, but i wouldnt leave out anything thats not for women

    i got 8000 repins in 5 days, i got alot of traffic, more than i ever got in that amount of time. i only have book stores on my blog and a couple of non-related affiliates. i just didnt use the word of and put it in because it sounded better, it sounded like love it made me wanna play a love song, but a Van Halen one i liked almost 30 years ago. it felt fucking good, just thinking of getting traffic

    so i was gonna say im not making any money because its just a Self Improvement blog and noone really wants to buy books, theres not much you can do with it

    i was getting repins like every minute or two, of course some breaks there

    i honestly dont know how long it was, like two months ago. i was still getting repins and traffic after that

    today i have 14,500, just my infographic and most of them probably didnt even go to my site they just pin it and read the infographic

    its 1:00 PM i dont have a problem saying ill probably have 15,000 by the end of the day. still getting repins by the minute. i have a blog with a fashion line store and a perfume blog with a store i let them know i have them rite at the top in the sidebar, maybe something will come of it

    people can say what they will about how to make money on pinterest, it aint nothing, just use the free sites to follow and get followed, any of you guys with money to buy the plans could get followers and follow alot of people

    its just total luck who sees your pins if youre new. and it doesnt have be like a website or whatever organazation online. if someone with a big board repins it, thousands could see it in the next hour. get some repins out of that youre set. once it gets going on everyones boards its just starts going and doesnt stop, ive seen it

    you guys are good with talking to people and commenting, i dont ever do anything like that. you can mail board leaders to try to get invited to their boards. theres a site somewhere that shows you the top boards and the people who started them

    yesterday i got the most traffic ive ever gotten in a day, 500 according to statcounter, i hardy ever look at google analytics, it only says 800 since the end of the year, i know theyre both never rite

    statcounter says 200 at 1:30 rite now today

    everyone should be posting alot on pinterest, if you dont get repins for months, keep posting

    15,000 repins of traffic didnt cost me anything, ive seen pins get 120,000, i know it can happen to me

    Yeah Pinterest users LOVE infographics. I used to hate Pinterest but I actually prefer it over other social media. Idk; I feel like it's far less retarded than the other ones and more likely to get you views and sales. You just have to have the right niche.

    I've been with Pinterest for a long time and I feel like the algorithm has changed a lot. I used to throw out a pin and get bites right away. These days I have hundreds of pins (inforgraphics, quotes, etc) that just collect dust sitting at no repins. Kinda shocked actually how much it has changed. I've been using Tailwind recently so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it.

    How can you say you can't monetize a self improvement site? Are you crazy ? Hay House makes 20 millions a year. If you have a big email list on self improvement DM me. We'lol make momey

    A little off topic, but I ran into a similar experience with google plus.

    I average anywhere from 500-1000 views a day from google plus. The big benefit is you can post in communities with thousands to hundreds of thousands of users in your given niche and you can use the google API to follow(add to your circle) a limitless number of people extremely quickly.

    I'll have to checkout pinterest and see if I can get the same effect you have going. Thanks for the post!

    What do you think about home and kitchen niche? And is it easy to get sales from pinterest to an amazon affiliate site?

    I feel it's the other way round. 2 years back i knew I could spam group boards with pins and make it viral. In between...well I didn't know what to do. Now, I don't have a single new pin that doesn't score 1k repins per month and at least 100 views per day. I'm fucking in love with pinterest in fact.
    The only thing that changed is the organic follower thing. I used tog et 100 and up to 200 followers per day without doing shit..now it's down to 10..but click through rates are way up - so who cares about followers

    That's interesting. I agree that my organic followers are down, but I've noticed a huge drop in my repins across all niches.

    Any tips on the types of pins you are using? Size? Color? Inforgraphs?

    i haven't done an infographic ever. I personally hate them because well...they are not very informative & i feel the time for them is past. Besides, why would you click through on an infographic? the info is already all there. Bullshit.
    Also, all those useless stats about size and color are dead wrong. It just needs to look perfect and be vertical. But stats saying reds are more often repinned than blues are just bullishit, if you ask me.

    My repins are not down, only organic growth. I am currently averaging 3800 repins a day on my main account and that number has been growing continuously for the past years.

    I am testing somthing new...

    1. 256 Pinterest accounts 1:1 proxy.
    2. My main account

    My main account will post my uploaded pins with link in pin. I will have my 256 accounts re pin my main accounts pins.

    Should be good I was thinking 3:1 proxy per account but I want to be safe.

    Loved your post, very inspirational. I am seriously going to sit down and start learning a lot about this and how to master other social media, because I just blast stuff out on MassPlanner but the results are not coming all that much so there is a ton of room for improvement. Would you say PinPinterest is better than MassPlanner in terms of Pinterest/RePinning? Is it more user friendly?

    Thanks!
