    Hi everyone,

    My name is Rokas (Rock + as) I'm 21 years old. I live in Lithuania, Europe.

    This is my first public journey. I have decided to oblige myself in this way to keep an eye on my progress and to stay consistent, which is the hardest part for me.

    Method: Pinterest + Google Adsense.

    Niche: Recipes.

    Goals:

    1) +5 euros 3 days in a row.
    2) +10 euros 3 days in a row.
    3) +20 euros 3 days in a row.

    Reasons:

    1) I have no job and I like it.
    2) I have no money and I don't like it.
    3) Have to start small in order to become massive :)

    In the time of writing this I can smell my buckwheat burning on the stove. Damn!

    The start:

    1)
    Real looking wifehouse Pinterest profile (524 followers, 295 pins, contributor to 1 group board)
    *I have tried this method 4 months ago but didn't stay consistent*
    2) Real looking blogger website running on Profinity template.
    3) 3 responsive Google ads - under the title, in the middle & in footer.

    Secret to success:

    Get invited to as many group boards as I can. Group boards = traffic, traffic = money.

    Correct me if I'm wrong ;)

    This is it,

    Thank you for reading. Your comments are always welcome!

    Hi Rockass! I will follow your journey, since I am trying the same right now :) How do you find your group boards? Are you just lookin or do you use a tool? I tried Board Deck but switched to PinGroupie, because it seems fresher and you can search the descriptions. That's how I found some gems, that weren't spammed :) Look for high repin rate!

    I wish you all the best! Pinterest is the next big thing :)

    Best of luck on your journey!

    Try not to focus on only getting into a big board. Try to create and grow your own board(s) as well. :)

    Don't forget to make your recipes unique and not copy and pasted.

    I'll second trying to grow your own group boards. Be careful about who you let join, as well as which other ones you join. Just because a group board has xxx,xxx followers means nothing... what if the bulk of them are bots? I've seen many enormous group boards with tons more followers than my boards that don't get near the amount of repins and activity.

    Asked to be invited to: 5 group boards
    Currently invited to: 1 group board
    Profile followers: 527
    My shared board followers: 518

    Notes:
    1) Did a quick research on the best time to pin which is around : 3 am - 9 am (+2 GMT).
    A good reason to wake up early :)
    2) Looked for Pinterest auto scheduler and found Viraltag which cost 28$/month. Will be using it in the future I guess. (feel free to suggest any other free auto scheduler)

    Hi, I use a special Google search string which I found posted on a similar journey. Usually I open up one board which leads to another 5 and those 5 to another 20 haha :) Here's the string tho:

    Enter your keyword instead of ### ;) I haven't heard of PinGroupie, I'll have a look into it, thanks!

    Thanks!

    Thanks, this is what I do ;)

    At this time I'm copy pasting them, tho I had a thought about copy pasting them from some old recipe book. However, if I did this, I would start fresh and try to rank in Google at the same.
    Currently I'm sticking to copy pasting ;)

    Thanks for your advice, I always look at the repin rate rather than amount of followers ;)

    Sorry to hear that but sh*t happens and you have to learn how to deal with it ;) Stay tough :)

    Thanks, hope my journey will keep you interested ;)

    Seriously new to Pinterest and Adsense but do you have a landing page that the users visit? I dont think adsense works with pinterest so whats the revenue model? I am familiar with using youtube to generate traffic to landing pages so I am presuming pinterest is the same idea where its just directing traffic to your site?

    Good luck with it

    But now a days pinterest group boards are saturated with recipes, so i am working with new niches in pinterest .. i.e cats, animals, nature, travel which are also doing well

    So i will recommend having at least one more niche in parallel of rather less competition to secure your earnings

    Following your journey, 1 Question though : Are you Copy pasting Recipes from other Websites and spinning a bit or Creating your won content ?

    There's no landing page. I post new recipes on my blog and then pin them on Pinterest. Each recipes has 3 G ads. So basically yes, Pinterest is directing traffic to my site (specific recipes).

    Labas, aciu! :) (Thanks)

    Cheers mate, I'm thinking about buying your invitations. Even tho it's saturated I still see traffic coming in. Traffic = money, so I'm not too concerned about it. On the other hand, having a parallel niche is something I will consider, but for now I will focus on recipes ;)

    Thanks, check this out in 30 days I will be smashing it ;) Aciu!

    Thanks, pure copy pasting. I guess there's no need to spin them as long as I'm not ranking in G. As far as I know, G adsense allows duplicate content, so I shouldn't get banned. Correct me if I'm wrong ;)
