    Figure i would throw this out there for people who may not have included this in their "marketing plan".

    Pinterest is about 70% mobile visitors... so your site MUST be "responsive". What this means is that you must have it set up to look good on mobile browsers. A while back i was using a theme that was not responsive and i got about a 300% increase in adsense clicks when i switched over to a responsive theme.

    Also.... If you are into Amazon associates marketing you may want to think twice about mobile users. A mobile user may go to amazon through your link and save a cookie, but chances are that they will make a purchase through the actual amazon app on their phone(if they purchase on a phone) and i am not sure if the cookie would even help you. If i was on an iphone or android phone i would definitely make a purchase through the amazon app instead of the damn browser.

    So what i do.....I have a javascript set up....... on the landing page for my pins.

    <script type="text/javascript">
    if (screen.width <= 1000) {
    document.location = "http://www.address.com";

    This is just a ballpark script and you may come up with a better one, but if a person is on a mobile phone it will redirect them to my adsense site. I would rather a mobile user go tomy adsense blog so that they can just click an ad to make me money instead of relying on a mobile browser cookie which will probably never be used.

    Sorry if some of this stuff doesnt make sense.... had a bit of vodka : ) Figure i would give the tip out to others so they don't waste time like i did.

    Seems like a pretty good idea. I wonder if anyone knows this one - if you are promoting specific Amazon products, you can have the affiliate link do a direct add to cart. On mobile sites, this would make sense. The question is, if the customer adds it to the cart on the mobile site, I wonder if you buy it through the app, you would still get affiliate commission. I would think so?
