    My name is Puneet and this thread is meant to keep me organized and motivated. I will be using Pinterest + Blogging + Adsense. My last earning proof with this method is in the image below

    earning.jpg

    I will be creating a new site for this method and this thread will show earnings from that site only. Since I am a developer I have automated everything already - from finding images on Pinterest, to posting them on my blog and then to posting back to Pinterest. My main work would be to join as many quality group boards as possible.

    What I have-

    1) I am not using private proxies. I have 35 vps servers on annual plans that I use as proxy servers for myself
    2) I create my accounts manually with good profile information and pics
    3) I use a master Pinterest account to get invites to boards and I then use different dummy/small accounts for each site. So this project will have 1 new Pinterest account in use for the site
    4) I use Pinblaster to just get things started on new accounts (get few followers and automate pinning for first few days), then I use my own script to automate pinning from blog (No more use of Pinblaster after that)
    5) Key is to get into group boards as well as make your master Pinterest account more authentic over time to get invitations easily.
    6) I don't use my main Pinterest account to Pin from blogs as I don't want to get blocked etc.
    7) I already have 2 blogs in food/recipe niche, so I am going to use a different niche this time.

    Thanks if you are subscribing.

    And will you drive traffic to your blog outside of Pinterest, or you can put ads on Pinterest?
    Sorry for this stupid question but I am a noob in pinterest and I really want to make some money with adsense

    For a starting, you can just create a website in food/recipe niche. Post few images on it (find it on Pinterest if you can't find anywhere). Try to join group boards with huge following. Pin your images from your blog to these group boards. Don't Spam to keep it working long term.

    Major traffic would be from Pinterest. I have applied for sponsored pins, lets see when do I get a reply. I am testing FB ads return with adsense blogs. I am testing it so I mayn't use it until I find it to be viable.

    Awesome Glad to see a Pinterest Journey after a long time.
    But your intro lacks many things how many accounts are you managing and so on.

    Would be glad to hear what proxies are you using for that as I get all accounts suspended if 1 gets tracked or something like that
    I am still testing it out.
    Cheers

    Thanks Much better now.
    But not able to understand how you use those proxy servers, As even if you use 1 account over 1 VPS servers and to get it started you use Pinblaster and you might have installed a Unique PB upon al those 35 servers correct. thats pretty Hectic.

    But I like your idea not to use Main account as I do that and end up getting that banned too.
    Thanks will follow you up and would love to see much more here.

    Cheers

    You did not answer my question, so you have a website with a domain and you post some photos on pinterest and if someone want the full recipe they need to visit your website and you make money from the ads OR you can put ads on pinterest?

    No, proxy servers are setup with proxy script with debian or ubuntu (not window), so I get 35 proxies like these xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:portnumber:user:password (same like if you buy proxies from any seller from here or fiverr). They just belong to me. I install pinblaster on my personal pc and import those proxies into it and associate them with individual accounts.

    Since these are private proxies that only I use, I minimize the risk of getting banned. If you have bought proxies-be careful somebody else may be using them too for Pinterest. If they do something bad, your accounts will be at stake too.

    I have ads on my blogs. People come from Pinterest to my blog and click on ads.

    No, its not iMacros. They all are server side scripts based on php and headless browser (for scraping Pinterest). So everything runs on debian/ubuntu servers 24X7 and I don't need to touch anything from scraping to posting to blog and to posting back to Pinterest.

    Where did you get your VPS' from? Looking into setting up some proxies moving forward, as you mentioned private proxies often are still abused. Did you have to drop any VPS so far t get a new IP and how long dies the setup process for the proxy take you?

    Good luck.

    Same Question as neu009, How much do they cost you as getting proxy that will work for you is a pretty hard thing.

    Hoping you reach your goals soon..

    3) I use a master Pinterest account to get invites to boards and I then use different dummy/small accounts for each site. So this project will have 1 new Pinterest account in use for the site

    1.)Sorry how does the small accounts help the master account to get followers
    2.) I thought adsense does not like gallery . Please correct me if am wrong
    3.) How many followers do you need on the master account to start making 100$.
    I really wanna follow this thread to understand more about pinterest

    Hi.

    How do you get past this rule listed by AdSense: "Publishers may not place ads on sites with content protected by copyright unless they have the legal right to do so."

    Thanks

    Important for users who want to get their own proxy server

    Truly speaking you need just 1 proxy to run dummy Pinterest account for 1 blog (I have multiple blogs and therefore associated multiple pinterest accounts and IPs). You can run your master account on your home IP without any proxy. You can get a cheap server from here lowendbox (dot) com on annual plan for less than $10 a year (bam! thats cheaper than buying shared proxy for a year lol).

    I don't have any personal recommendation. Please do your due diligence in finding an apt vps and make sure to ask them by emailing if they allow private proxies (tell them its for your personal use not for public consumption).

    @neu009 @thehacker290494 I don't need to drop any VPS IP as they never get blocked, because only I am using them not others (thats why you should get them on annual plan...gets much cheaper). Its like using a static IP on your home network, so Pinterest doesn't block you for it (they still can for spam, so avoid spamming). Regarding setup, if you are a Windows guy, it can be difficult to setup proxy server using Linux. I setup mine in under 3 minute each on debian. You don't need more than 32MB of Ram on a VPS if you are running a proxy. But if you are new try with 128 or 256 MB plans. I can't help much in setting up, other than you can search for setting up squid proxy or 3proxy on debian/ubuntu tutorials and follow them. It can be a learning curve but its worth it if you are into IM.

    Thanks I have made this thread just for getting motivation for this journey else I will lose interest in it soon ;)

    1) I create a single account (call it master account) which never pins any image from my blog. All it do is follow people everyday and repin popular images in your niche (say you are in food niche...so make 5-10 food boards and repin popular images to them). You motive is to get a lot of followers to it (say 5K to 10K with 30-40 days of work). Then you would use this board to get invitation to other group boards in food niche.

    Now comes into play your 2nd pinterest account (call it dummy account). You will use it to pin images to those group boards that you got invited to using your master account.

    2) I don't run Google, so yes they can ban you. But I have got multiple payments already from them and I just don't use the images. My self made bot scripts just post as much stuff it can find from the original source (including ingredients, introductions etc). I avoid posting the complete recipe(that would be too bad) and just link to the original source in the post. So it is kind of curation site on steroids ;) And Google love those afaik.

    3) Followers on main account has nothing to do with making money, its just for getting invitation. Income depends on group board followers. If you are starting out target group boards with atleast 10K followers. Since I have made my master account authentic I target boards with 50K to100K followers atleast. Money is in those followers.

    @Sirius5767 Please read above explanation. I never post complete recipes(to be in compliant). Other than that I just curate automatically just as Pinterest does with other people images and content. Also I have copyright disclaimer on each page which states that I don't own any of these stuff, it belongs to their respective mama's.
