    It will take WAYYYYYYYY lots more than this. You will also need lots of accounts.
    Kind in mind that there's lots of people using Pinterest, including marketers !

    Personally, i gave up on Pinterest. too much work for so little.

    You need about 1000 - 2000 pins on pinterest then you start getting repins and some traffic. Traffic depend on niche. If you pin just beautiful photos then you probably do not get traffic but if you pin recipes then can think of some traffic.
    Need pin something which makes people open image. Example: recipes, people wants to know how to cook that cake, diy stuff the same...

    That's like saying "I posted 50 facebook posts and i don't have any traffic." How big is your audience? How many followers? What boards are you pinning on?

    I m starting to have success with pinterest. You need lots of followers. How many followers do u have now??
    You need to have lots of followers and access to group boards with huge follower count. These both things will get u exposure. I can easily get 200+ traffic with the amount of pins u did and when luck is there I get more. Some of my year old pins still get me some traffic. It all depends upon the number of people ur pins reach, the quality of pin and luck.

    You need to do more than pin to get traffic. Namely followers. The easiest way to get more followers is to follow other people, some of whom will follow you back.

    Join group boards and pin on those without spamming.

    Here's some tips for beginners. This will be your foundation. This is the format I use for all my pins:

    [PinKeyword - #PinHashtag - Killer headline - Call to Action - url]

    Recipe example:

    pumpkin pie - #pierecipes - Bake Scrumptous Pumpkin Pie - Click here for recipe - http://www.pierecipes.com

    Here's your action plan:

    Focus on boards and pins that are in your niche. When getting started create boards using keyword research in your niche so they'll get listed in the search engines. You should build backlinks to those as well. Add laser targetted pins to those boards. Next, Do as many invites as possible to get top pinners to pin to your boards. This will allow your boards to be seen by their followers. Join contributor boards that are in your niche and post your pins to those boards as frequent as you can. Last but no least, follow other boards and pinners in your niche but be sure they have a good number of followers or it will be a waste of time. Be sure to keep pinning new pins to your boards with your information and you will get consistent traffic.
