Pinterest has almost been a forgotten social network, but it’s making a comeback in a big way through Pinterest website traffic
Pinterest may be the best source of website traffic on the planet.
As great as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are at helping you gain exposure to your business/brand, none of them are great at driving traffic to your website.
Those social networks tend to keep the users on their respective sites/apps looking for the next post from their friends/family or the next viral video or image.
However with Pinterest it’s more of a site where people are looking for particular things they are interested in. And it just so happens that those things are linked directly back to the site in which they came from.
So that means Pinterest users are not looking for the next post or next viral video or image, but instead seeking out what they’re searching for.
The majority of the time Pinterest users are looking for something they have a particular interest in and when they find it they’re happy as a clam that they can now go directly to the source to learn more about that interest or make a purchase.
So can you to Pinterest setup an account pin a bunch of photos/images from your website and then magically get 100,000 visitors to your website over the next 12 months? The short answer is no.
Unfortunately it’s a process and it takes time to build up your followers on Pinterest and unless you have a ton of time to go and follow everyone who’s in your niche it’s not going to be effective.
So how do you get the traffic from Pinterest then? The short answer Pinterest Group Boards.
The first step is to get 50-100 followers to your Pinterest account.
Step two is to find Pinterest Group Boards in your niche and then apply to join those group boards.
Once you get into those group boards then when you pin your content the group boards you belong to, those users in the groups will then be notified of those pins and because those group boards are in your niche your pins will resonate with those audiences and drive those users to re-pin your pins giving you exponential reach thus driving boat loads of traffic to your website.
