I've been trying for months to get my Pnterest traffic back to my hub pages. I just found out that my Pinterest pages go to a hubpage on Pinterest that is totally unorganized, they would never find my stuff! WHY aren't my links coming back here to my Hubpages? Am I missing some thing? I don't want my Pinterest links to link to hubpages there! I want them to come to my hubpages!
Maybe i'm misunderstanding the question. Are your hubs featured? As I understand it, only featured hubs have follow links.
If I understand correctly, the links on Pinterest pointing towards HP aren't producing any traffic. Whether a hub is featured or not has no bearing on whether links on another site will still work.
I'm still getting high (for me) daily traffic from Pinterest on some of my hubs. So, it doesn't seem that those links are blocked or broken. However, it does seem that Pinterest blocks some of the niche sites. When I recently tried to link to one of them, Pinterest blocked it as possibly a spam site.
I'm curious whether the fact that they are "nofollow" links has any bearing. Only featured hubs are released to Google's site index. You can check the link under the page's source code. It would say <a rel="nofollow" href= ...
Again, i don't know any other reason why it would redirect to a different navigation interface, unless the link is wrong.
@andrewdavidlowen Yes, the pages are featured,
I'm sorry! I should've been more clear. When I am on Pinterest, there is a place to put a link on my board, where you want the link to go. I always sent the Pinterest traffic back to my hub pages. When I was at Pinterest, I clicked a link, that should've taken me to "my" hubpage. But instead I got redirected to the "hubpage" page on Pinterest. The hubpage on Pinterest is a terrible place to find any thing, it's very unorganized. I couldn't find my own recipe there, so I don't know how anybody else can either.So say I'm on Pinterest and I want people to visit my "food" hubpage, it doesn't come back here. I don't use the short links either because they DO redirect to Pinterests Hubpage. Why don't my hubpages link bring traffic back to my hubpage?
I understand now. What is the link to your pinterest? or your username... I'll take a look at the link itself and see where it takes me.
Thanks for your time in doing this for me andrewdavidlowen! I've read the comments and did some research, I have no idea why I can't get my li9nks back here to hubpages??
Pinterest link is https://www.pinterest.com/protasker/
It seems to be working for me. Did you change something recently?
I haven't changed any thing here or on Pinterest Andrew. OOHHH!!!!! I just went there and finally figured this out! If I hit the "link" it takes me to Hubpages on Pinterest. If I hit the "visit" button I get back here! Thank you so much for taking the time to help me with this Andrew. Mystery finally solved! Again, Thanks everyone!
I don't link to my pages from Pinterest - I do it the other way round. I have a button on my browser (Firefox) so when I open one of my hubs, blog posts or articles, I click the button and it brings up a grid of images. I pick the one I want, then choose the board and it's done. Takes about 3 seconds. The link always works.
Well! Thank You for that theraggededge, I ams going to have some work to do now.
Yes - do not go to pinterest and from there link to hubpages. After you publish an article here, you can click onto any of your images used and submit that image to Pinterest, and it will automatically link back to the hubpages article the image is on.
Focus on the quality of the page, instead of the link, the rest will follow naturally
I also just checked your Pinterest page and clicked on the photo and then clicked on the Read It button and they all took me to your Hubpages article. I checked three of them.

What are your thoughts on the new affiliate link affiliate link blanket rule? Do you think it will reduce the tsunami of spam hubs that spammer hubbers are publishing or will it make no difference at all?Personally I...

Now, not before, when you place a link, you have a choice to click rel=nofollow so that search engines ignore it. So in future hubs that you write or if you want to go back and edit, do not check this box for links to...
