    As we all know pinterest drives a whole lot of traffic, and 88% of members are women, so I got started with my pinterest journey.
    My question is why is all of the traffic directed from Poland, and not the United States? It drives me mad, because Polish traffic doesn't convert well.
    Does that mean that I would have to use a proxy to direct USA traffic?

    Do you live in Poland?
    Is your account based in Poland?
    If all of the above are yes, then yeah, you'll get Poland traffic.
    If not, is because your pins are being repined by users from Poland.
    Just keep pining.

    Yes, I currently live in Poland, and my account is based in Poland.
    Have you any suggestions on how to get traffic outside Poland? If I would have to go with proxies, that would also link with investment.

    Dig deeper into your analytics. Which city in Poland is all your traffic coming from? Same city as you?

    I'd bet that your analytics is tracking your own pageviews there, thats why its mainly all from Poland

    They aren't from the same city in Poland that I live in. + The stats don't track my own pageviews.

    The problem is that I don't get invitations to such boards, I am a member of two that have 11K followers, but they aren't active.
    It's very hard for invitations those days on pinterest. ;/

    Get an Private SSL USA based Proxy and make another account.
    You won't get US based since Pinterest gives priority to your geolocation.

    You need to create a new account ,under a new name, using a private proxy in the USA, with an address in the US. Pinterest is only doing what 99% of folks in Poland expect them to: sending you stuff Poles would probably find interesting.

    Thanks guys, for your tips. I'm going to use a free trial, and see how it will work out using a private proxy. ;)

    Question: Would changing my IP address help in this cause also?
    Or could I use a shared proxy?

    When you're in poland and you get traffic from your own country.
    Changing the destination where you're Ip is coming from, should also change the destination of your traffic.

    Never use shared proxys, if you don't have to.
    Who knows what kind of activity the other ones are doing on that.

    Thanks. I'm looking for something free that could provide me that, I don't have any money for investing in private proxies.

    It won't matter
    You need to pay for a SSL proxy.
    That sucks but it's the way it is. Unless you want to keep receiving Poland traffic

    Would love to live in the US or at least go back to the UK, lol.
    With a lot of work I finally managed to set up my private proxy (located in Florida) haha.
    I have a three day free trial, if that will help me to drive traffic I won't mind spending those three dollars,
    but I want to check how it's going to work out. I am going to create a new pinterest account right away,
    do the simple routine I do manually, and see if I will get any high traffic to my blog.
