    Hi,

    What's the way to drive traffic from Pinterest?
    Create several accounts and join approx. 500 different group boards on each account?

    Joining active groupboard seems to be my best experience for predictable traffic and engagement. Inactive boards help, too, because the pins you make to it are tallied in the overall pin count.; even if traffic is nonexistent.

    Thank yo very much for your reply. Do you mind if I ask you a few more questions.
    It seems like good boards are really difficult to find. Directories like Pingroupie or BoardBooster don't have that many, and when I search for boards using the Pinterest search, there aren't any group boards in the results...
    In your opinion
    1. What's the most effective way to find group boards?
    2. If you're trying to join a board and the owner sees that you're already a member of 50 other boards, isn't that a problem?
    3. Do people sometimes pay to join?

    Thanks for your help

    1. I find active pinners in my niche and try to join the same boards they have. Just go to their profile and get busy.
    2. Maybe. I just don't know how board owners see potential members.
    3. I'm sure they do. Every so often, I see a post in this forum to join boards in exchange for pay. A cheaper way is to build your own group boards and ask owners of boards you want to join for an invite exchange. Just a thought, many board owners are bloggers themselves with FB/Twitter and other social media accounts. Perhaps asking them to join/exchange invites in those mediums could catch their attention as well.

    All in all, group boards are worth it. But build/joining them take a long time because they're manually done. I don't know any other way around it.

    Great advice thanks a lot.
    Just finding these boards is indeed a lot of work. And I haven't even started trying to join (should be commenting/sending emails later today)
    Yes definitely the right long term strategy, although right now honestly I'm trying to find the fastest way of bringing traffic to my website, so I'm looking for any shortcuts.
    Will do, thanks for the idea
