    I have one Pinterest account with 13K+ followers, all real followers as I did not used any service for getting followers. I use to pin 20-30 pins in every 1-2 days. This gives around 250 visitors per day to my blog. When my follower count was around 5K I used to get same UVs per day with the same pinning style.

    I can not understand why the visitors are not increasing.

    Please guide

    first of all, 30 pins per day is not enough, you should pin at least 50 per day.
    maybe your followers are not interested in your content, or maybe they are starting to get bored of it.
    make sure your pins are enticing, and start pinning more.
    possibly some of your followers are bot accounts.
    but in the end, pinterest is all about residual traffic.
    so pin more = bigger chance to go viral = more traffic.

    But I get lots of repins , that means the pins are interesting. Yes, I also believe I need to pin more.
    OK, should I upload pins and add site as source or upload to site then pin? I normally do the first.

    Followers dont matter to be honest unless you have in the hundred thousands. What matters is the boards you pin too and if you want more UV obviously you need to pin more.

    Pin content from your website to pinterest and don't upload pins and add source. Also join community boards and also check if your followers don't have very diferrent time zones.

    In my case the best hours are always after midnight because i am from EU.

    I am confused at one point: 50 pins per day from blog means 50 images to be added to my blog per day. So the blog will be image based, less content.
    Can you please explain why I should not upload and add source? How this can affect?

    if you mean the source is your home page, then thats a bad idea.
    because people aren't going to find what they clicked so they will get mad, and might get you banned.
    and also make sure there is some type of incentive for your followers to visit your site.
    for example, if your pin is just a simple picture of a cat, then there is no reason for someone to click your picture.

    Increase your pinning then you'll get more visitors to your blog. You really can't expect 20-30 to get that much traffic :x

    here is the solution... repins popular pins of others from your relative niche and then change URLs manually to your inner pages.

    First off, it's not your followers that matters, it's the boards you pin to. Secondly, you need more than 1 account with access to big boards.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for all kind replies....
    Here are the tips I am taking home....

    1. Min. 50 Pins per day with inner pages (mix of direct upload + pins from blog)
    2. Repin and change URL
    3. Inventive for visiting my blog for non-related pins

    Should I add anything else?

    Starting today......ll post back with results.

    Try multiple niche, on one board i will pin like 50-70 pins, then let it stay for 2-3 days,
    then pin on other board with other niche and this way go on
    This pinterest profile is meant to grow in longer terms, other profiles are used to pin like ~500 pins a day, random on group boards and your own
    After hitting 10K pins on this kind of profile, just abandon it and start couple of more profiles like this one

    Also now a days there is fierce competition you are facing by spammers they are literary pouring millions of pins, so this repins thingy is not a better way to go
    Your target should be ruling search results on pinterest
    Just search any keyword and you will see that these pins that are shown are high quality plus their description is like "one keyword + A short heart touching story"
    You need to improvise using this trend and pin wisely

    Can you please suggest me any bot to pin 500 pins a day....doing it manually is really hectic and time consuming. And for multiple accounts it is huge! Any cheap or free bot please.

    One more question: Am I need to purchase private proxies for multiple accounts or just public proxies will work?

    pinblaster is definitely a great bot.
    get private proxies for sure, public proxies will never work well for this type of marketing.

    You should pin more on your boards. Some people follow some of the boards they like. Secondly, write interesting captions that draw attention. Thirdly the keywords must be averagely in the reach of common people.
    Promote your pins through social sites like facebook, twitter etc. I hope it will help.

    Repinning is a great way of building up new followers, but to be truly influential, you need to pin your own content regularly and before everyone else. In your communities, keep an eye out for content that has already been posted to see what people like and look for content that haven't been pinned yet. If you become a source for original content, you will have a greater chance of getting repinned and obtaining new followers. There is another great method of increasing pinterest traffic, that method is buying Pinterest traffic. There are many websites from which you can buy Pinterest followers, but I'd suggest you to try SEOclerks, as you can find many freelancers on this site providing Pinterest followers at a very cheap rate!
