I have a few hubs but I have next to no traffic. The traffic that I do get comes directly from Hubpages.
I've pinnned some of my pages onto pinterest but no of them have been repinned, what am I doing wrong?
Any help or advice (or pins) are greatly appreciated
How big is your audience on Pinterest? How active are you on Pinterest and other social media? How popular is your topic? Marketing via social media is not a passive activity. You can't just pin something and then sit back and wait for the world to take notice. How often do you repin other pinners stuff? You have to be active on social media yourself to attract an audience. I am active on FB, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and Flipboard. I participate on all of them on a daily basis.
Thanks for your feedback. I will be more active on Pintrest from now on.
I have pinned 660 - pages.
655 are other peoples pins, 5 are my own.
You only have 7 published hubs. It would be hard to get much traffic unless you get really lucky with one of them.
I'm not an expert, my traffic is also low. So take all of this with a grain of salt.
Pinterest may just take time. A thing to think about is the pictures themselves. A picture of a bar of soap, while appropriate for "How to Make Black African Soap and Exfoliation Recipe" might not have many people interested in posting or looking at the article.
You may want to think about the titles when making a Hub. I did a Google search on some of your titles and your Hub didn't show up on the first page. "Accupressure" for example is an accurate title but there is probably too much competition for that keyword. It's like a first name, you don't want it to be either too common of too unusual.
Another issue may be the number of Hubs. There is an old saying, "Quantity makes its own quality."
Good Hubs on searchable subjects will get traffic on their own, so if you're not getting traffic there are other issues to address. Just Pinning them won't make much difference if you don't fix those.
You'll find a Hub on the slider on my profile, it's called How to Optimize your Hubs to Make Money. It goes over how to revise your Hubs to improve traffic and income. It might help you. Also, when you revise your Hubs, you can look at creating some Made for Pinterest images. These will encourage other people to pin and repin your photos:

Not sure good hubs will get traffic from search unless they get moved to a niche site. I have a feeling getting stuff on the niches will become more difficult after Fred but it is still the thing to focus on.
+10. Great work pinning other people's pins. But, don't forget to bring fresh content that doesn't belong to you. Honestly, whenever I see a web page that interests me, I pin in. People are interested in new ideas. So if you find a site naturally that is awesome, pin it. The benefit is that I can use Pinterest as a catalog of sites I want to revisit.
Hi Erzulie! I took a look at your Hubs and they're all very niche (which is great!) but your titles could also be more niche. For example, on your article about accupressure, I would change the title to something that's at least a few words. Think about what someone who needs to read this article might be Google, perhaps a particular question, and use that as your title. That has been my own best solution for driving traffic - making sure my title is search friendly. Great Hubs, keep writing
Thank you all for your advice and tips it's really valuable.
Focus on your profile building on Pinterest first. When you'll get good followers on Pinterest then automatically you'll start getting pinned for your hubpost
Some Pinterest users are like me - I only ever pin beautiful images. I have 7,259 followers. If I find an image that leads to a useful link, but is not beautiful, it goes onto a private board.

Okay, Hubpages. I was giving you all kinds of love because you have a track record of being sensitive to copyright issues. Because of that, I'd started posting my original photo essays here even though they make more...
