Has anyone else noticed a dramatic decrease in traffic from Pinterest, especially those of you that get good traffic from them? It has always been my big source of traffic.
They have changed the way they do the feeds, and unfortunately it has affected my traffic from them, and not in a good way.
I have also noticed that some pins (either my own hubs or pins from other sources) that used to get repinned numerous times per day are no longer getting repinned at all.
Looks like they are really changing things up.
Traffic seems unaffected - it is still one of my best sources for traffic.
How active are you on pinterest? I usually do what I call 5 mins of pins. I use 5 minutes every day to pin and repin stuff. Building my collection of pins and staying frequent to ensure that people pick up on my profile, hopefully have a snoop, and find some pins. I also repin the items every now and again- i delete the originals first to ensure I dont double pin, just to being the item back to the top of the pin board.
Don't get me wrong, I have still had a bit of a decrease in traffic from all sources, but I feel that staying active on the social media platforms helps a lot!
That's a great suggestion, sparkelyfinger! I am also experiencing a significant drop in Pinterest traffic. I've also been very busy lately and not pinning as much. I'll make a point of doing some pinning every day. I do delete and repin some of my hubs, especially if I find a better photo to use.
I get a lot of Pinterest traffic and have not noticed a decrease, a.though there are rushes and slowdowns now and then. When I get a slowdown, I spend some more time there just repinning other people's stuff. I don't add or change any of my current stuff.
This does increase my traffic but I'm not sure if it is because I contribute to the site or if my traffic would have increased on its own. It also might be because people see something I pinned, and look at my boards which already have my hubs pinned to them.
I noticed recently that you cannot view much on the site anymore unless you log in. Perhaps a lot of your Pinterest traffic came from people who liked to browse the site without an account.
I've noticed a dramatic decrease in everything the last 2 days. Down to very few views now. Puts me in a bad mood
(shrugs) I must be the only one here who's never had much luck with Pinterest... I stopped "pinning" my stuff there a long time ago cuz I wasn't getting any juice from it at all.
I still get e-mails from them fairly often telling me that so-and-so re-pinned something-or-other from me, but I guess none of those "re-pinners" ever click thru to the hub itself, cuz my traffic from there has never been better than negligible...
There is less activity now, which I attribute to people getting ready for Halloween. However, if this continues, you should probably contact customer support to see what's up.
Yes, but some of that is due to the switch from Squidoo to HubPages and I have not been as active on Pinterest the last month.

I just joined Pinterest. With Twitter, people who follow you get your tweet in their newsfeed. I follow some people on Pinterest but do not see how that helps me to see their pins. Also when I get an email from...

It seems my answers got lost in the last thread. So here is the simple way to get pins. Make an image like the one above (with your hub title), place it on your hub and leave it. That's it. It's simple. Using this...

Just wanted to share this. Someone pinned or "flipped" one of my hubs on Flipboard, a magazine site. So I've had a ton of traffic all morning. I made my own magazine and the traffic magnified even more!...
