    Current status of my Pinterest Account:

    Monthly viewers: 33k (started from 7.6k)
    Following: 6588
    Followers: 3341
    Avg Clicks: 10 (very low!)

    No. of Pins: 2100

    No. of Boards: above 50

    It's important to share your pins as much as you can, so that in future, the abundance of your pins may help you for good conversion.

    Also, you have to keep some selected Boards where only your pins are saved. And one of these Boards can be chosen to keep for Pinterest Cover.

    Till now what I am not able to do is writing 2k words article daily for my blog. I think it's a too much of a task. But I am trying to get on it.

    Making daily 30 pins takes around 1.5-2 hrs
    I was making pins on blogs of I have affiliate link.
    But find out, if I make articles for my own blog, then I can save a lot of time while making pins.
    Hence, I have left making pins for a while, so I have 1week of pins pending to be designed.

    But I will complete it soon as I complete some articles for my blog.

    For now, I have many pins already designed , so need not to worry.

    Likewise, plans will keep changing but not the motive!

    You have an option to share a post on Instagram feed.
    Go to a post
    Tap on the 3 dots on the top right
    A new window will pop up
    Tap 'Share'
    Then go to the bottom and tap ''share links with other app'
    There you will find an option of Pinterest, tap on it and go

    That is how you do it. There is no other method that I know.
    What you are mentioning happens with some posts, But doesn't happen with every insta post.

    Finding the right group Boards or grouping with the right person can only increase clicks.

    Being a part of the board, should mean being a part of that persons profile.
    And that person should be a regular pinner, especially, on the board that you have made with him. That person should have wide reach obviously.

    I am following your journey as I am learning and developming my own strategy. My main interests is Tailwind + Shopify. BTW, how do you design your own pins? Canva?

    I have a feeling the older more seasoned your account gets the more powerful your pins will be. Followers are almost irrelevant in the new Pinterest Ranking system. Unique pins tend to do better than repins.

    Yes, I design using Canva. Immensely helpful.

    @wcp31 right, older the better. But You need followers so that your pins can come into their feed.

    Hi guys!

    My account have been suspended 4 days ago.
    (Though I have 3 more accounts)

    So what I observed is:
    Don't repin your old pins too much in a row.
    That may suspend you.
    I was doing this a few times recently, and finally they got me.

    But I also observed that there are still some accounts who repin their old pin, the same pin,
    around 60-70 times continuously,i a row, but still aren't suspended! I am surprised how are they doing it!

    Just to be sure I got you right,
    "6) At the same time , I was observing an account which rarely repinned. 95% pins and 5% repins. It was constantly on 63k monthly viewers.
    7) Continuing like that, it is now at 300k+ monthly viewers along with sales."
    at 7) you are talking about your account that was repinning, not the one account that you observed and had only 5% repins?

    Definitely following, good luck!

    Guys,
    Though I have received my Pinterest account just after a week it was suspended.
    The reason they told me is that they got in the mix and suspended some good accounts like mine which had to do nothing with the spam or any suspicious thing.

    My account is currently having 14k monthly viewers and I've paused it for some time as I am continuing with Link Building for a website (along with my exam preparations.)

    Sorry for not updating it untill now.
