    Hi there, I have been using pinterest for a little while, but nothing big. I then stopped to pursue more profitable projects. During this time, my girlfriend decided to use the website, not to make money or anything, just use it as it is supposed to be used. Anyway, she signed up to Pinterest and then signed up to Tumblr. She then browsed Pinterest for things she liked, in particular recipes.

    Her little method she came up with was:
    1. take image and edit it slightly.
    2. copy and paste recipe to her tumblr, add the image and post it.
    3. pin the images to pinterest
    4. use my old pinterest account (with ~300 followers) to repin her images to get some interest in it.

    After about a week of doign this, only making 10 blogs/pins a day, she is getting about 100-200 visits a day. I think she inadvertently hit on someting here.
    Let me explain, Tumblr is used by largely girls and their girly ideas on life, Pinterest is used by the same people, they often have accounts on both websites. They tended to reblog and repin on both websites, therefore doubling her traffic. I am going to add some Adsense into her tumblr, and see the results. Then I'll try selling a clickbank product. 1% CTR on CB would be about $20 a day!

    I am just throwing this out there, as she's doing better than I did with ALOT less effort, but maybe because she is a girl and knows what they like! haha... Showed me up :)

    Hi.

    Thanks for the thread. Being a girl, I find Pinterest fun and easy to use plus am making some money from there. I will try the combination. I think it will work well, since I also make money with Tumblr.

    haha "She then browsed Pinterest for things she liked, in particular recipes." Love it! Funny you say that because I have 3 pin accounts (all females) and I have shown them to the girls I know who LOVE pinterest. They all say the same thing, "you don't get what pining is". This is the disconnect between BH pin accounts and real pin accounts. I'm not going to explain it here but I am putting something together. Sounds like Ardley may have a good grasp on it.

    The other service that you should really look into is Bo.lt
    Bo.lt is a new pinterest like services that will auto post to fb, twitter, and pinterest. With those services in your tool belt you can easily auto post to tons of other websites where your posts will be syndicated.

    So, its better to create accounts with girl names and photos. Oh well. Like my friend said - on internet, behind every account with hot good looking girl photo is hidden some fat nerd in dirty underwear.

    Did you ever make any money doing this in the end? Have the visitor counts stayed high?

    IT sounds good method. DO you know there is a good way to find good images? Or use some tools to easily edit images and look great?

    I've been doing a similar thing to your girlfriend and it's been working out pretty decent for me too!

    I use tumblr and pinterest for my image based websites and deep link to the page with the image as a source. Every time it gets repinned or reblogged, that's another deep link. I have got to the front page of Google really fast on a competitive niche. Very powerful.

    Hi ardley,

    Can you update this thread. Would be interested to know what was the effect after you used adsense and CB.
