    Hi,

    I just started working on Pinterest a few days ago. I got myself the pinpal bot an a hundread proxys. Als I got myself a few hundread acccounts. Not as I high quality as I hoped for due to the mail using that gmail trick. SO far so good though I started adding followers repinnning and I couldn't see accounts going down or anything.

    Parallel I started building a blog by just downloading pics of certain pinterest categorys an uploading them to a blog. Then I manually started submitting them to random account using the same private proxy I was ising before. I am using about 3 proxys per ip and staying below all in pinpal recommended actions. Unfornatley I can't get one true visitor to my blog. I see pins through another account but I can't seem to get any decent exposure for my pin.

    So the main question is, what am I doing wrong. Are my accounts ghosted due to the email being obvious and spammy looking?
    Is 3 accounts per IP too much?
    Am I dong it wrong alltogether and should I just be repinning radnom popular posts with a landing page url without a picture and get as much out of that as I can?

    Hints are greatly appreciated. For my understanding I was taking are rather conservative approach
    can?

    Give it some time, if its only been a few days I'm sure you'll just have to play the waiting game and see if traffic starts to flow, BUT do not stop marketing and adding onto your pinterest acc, blog, ect... And maybe look into some fiver gigs to give your self pinterest boosts in terms of # of followers ect, as well as SEO your blog for your niche.

    cheers!

    This is what you should do to start Pinterest marketing. Create a white hat account manually. Create a few boards of things that will interest you. Find other peoples pins and like, comment, and repin them to you own board and then follow them. Then start to mix in your own pins from your own blogs.

    Are you now getting some traffic (won't be much at first)?

    this is what I do

    I have 2 main accounts that I like / comment / follow and post a few pins -- pretty much 12 hours a day -- they run at the same time and post randomly on those 2 accounts .... these accounts are growing.

    just posted a pin and had 2 people instantly go to my sales site.

    the other accounts are just grinding away slowly - so I can aggressively pump up 1 pin a day to generate sales - if any of those get banned I don't care.

    --- I guess it's horses for courses and depends alot on what your trying to monetize.

    Thanks. I hope you're right man. If there at least would have been a few visitors I would feel differently, but other then bots nothing. Thought it might go quciker especially when promoting pin with 300 accounts and judging by the exposure some pins with less repins like etc. are getting. I should be, too.

    Have you tried buying a fiverr gig and having them repin your pins and your boards? I did this to get my accounts jump started and then the real followers and repins started coming in.

    Ya, I was promoting the Forklift niche and found that it took about a week or two for me to get results... But mind you I was backlinking w/ pinterest to my ecommerce page, as well as had done a major seo campaign for the site, build nice natural looking bl's including pinning my products on the page to pinterest. BUT what I noticed was that pinterested gave my website a decent serp boost of like 20-30 spots for my KW... then after that I fiverr'd a lil 500 fake pinterest follower dealy w/ some re-pins n whatnot and that helped the juice of the pintrested backlinks aswell. . i'm gonna actually take a look right now and see how that account is doing... It was for an ex-client so i'm not too worried, but i'm gonna check my analytics and tell u what my referrers from Pinterest are looking like.. excuse the text block :)

    @harrykjell Okay that might just be the case with me then. I am not too interested in the benefits of SEO for my blog though. It soley there for pinterest right now.

    Are you using the same accounts or are the newly created accounts?

    Yes I created a white hat account, but I've been scared of promoting it via my "old"/"burned" accounts. Also I'll be creating a new blog tomorrow to be able to factor out those two variables.
    So basically I'll be able tomorrow or the day after if your approach works for me. God I hope its not the private proxy that are listed somehow.
