    Hi yall, i've been playing with pinterest since the last weeks, i got Pinblaster and 10 accounts by now with rougly 3.1k follower, all of my personas have around 5 board with fashion picture on it and few repins with my website as source, also i added extra desciption to those image like " check website for a detailed review keyword" but the thing is i havent yet drive a single visitor to the site. I havent done any repin as of yet cause i dont want to spam the profile till i figure out how to drive traffic. Any idea what im missing?, btw im only repinning to my boards till i figure out how this works.

    There was a change last October in pinterest that made it way harder to get traffic. Big group boards are really the only way now.

    Try focusing on quality.

    When I see spammers on pinterest a block/report them. Get so sick of people following me with 100s of accounts via pinblaster

    You need to pin more. Start uploading more and more pins and everyday and the traffic will start coming in

    pinterest is more difficult now to get traffic.
    to be honest OP, you are a little late.
    your whole goal should be to acquire as many followers as possible.
    then when you have those followers, you can market to them as you wish.
    but getting a lot of followers is tough now, because you can't really mass invite like you used to.
    and group board owners are becoming more serious by having a bunch of rules.
    also, users love to report marketers now so getting banned is much quicker now than it used to be.
    just play around with the site and come up with your own methods to gain followers.

    I've recently found it unbelievably hard to get traffic from Pinterest and I'm in need of a better method. I've tried pinning more, but that didn't really work.

    It;ll be even harder to the traffic from Pinterest once they star to monetize.

    you need to have pins that are worth clicking.
    for example, recipes are great because people need to click to get the ingredients.

    Building a follower base does take a bit of time with their follower restrictions. I decided to simply follow others and give relevant content up until i feel comfortable enough to, and only occasionally, post links to things i'm promoting. The pin promoting will be interesting when it comes out... not sure if i am very enthusiastic about it.

    Anyone try the same approach? What were your results with it?

    You can try joining groupboards for immediate exposure and traffic while trying to build up your own followers. Just be cautious since active groupboards are where you'll likely to get reported as a spammer. But they're worth it when it comes to repins and traffic since they're visited by real users.

    After my original and big account in the food niche was suspended 5 months ago, I opened up 10 more accounts with different IPs and pin/repin/follow conservatively. So far so good. these accounts are collectively up to 20K followers and I'm getting 700+ uniques daily from Pinterest. These accounts get invited to groupboards without my asking, so I suppose I'm doing something right.

    I pin at 1:5 ratio. I read others having success at 1:8 or more. The goal for pinning with these ratio instead of just pinning your own content, is to gain the trust of Pinterest community. There's enough post in BHW on pinning ratio to get you started.

    Something is wrong.. you should have seen at-least ONE visitor.. I myself get crazy traffic from pinterest.. like people said try to get in on a big group board.. I been on pinterest pretty much since it started.. But, I have a real account that I built up myself and my one account gets more more traffic then any bot accounts would get..

    Another thing is.. I know alot of people put the "click on picture to goto site crap" People that see that know your just trying to get them to click, when 90% of people already know you can click the photo to visit the site.. I think its annoying when I see pins like that..

    Not true, pinterest now allows you to include the ingredients with the pin.. pretty much whipping out the fact you need to click it for the recipe.. BUT, recipes is probably the top niche on pinterest I was doing good with it for awhile..

    Anyways, just tweak some shit around and good luck!
