How are you guys getting exposure via sharing on Pinterest? Just sharing to your own boards and people pick them up? Thanks.
That's exactly what I do Jesse, just share to my own boards and my followers repin them. I get just as many if not more views through Pinterest than Google.
Yep, what Jodah said. For me as to percentages, I just checked and 20% to 25% of my traffic in the last 30 days came from Pinterest.
Mostly pin on my own boards and get repins. Lately have been following or pinning more of others onto mine. I get steady activity from Pinterest but not a lot. Here's the breakdown from most traffic to least traffic:
Google (roughly, 85-90%)
Ya know... I haven't repinned any other pinners' pins in ages. So I worked up the energy to do a couple. I have no idea what the culture is there as to people there doing pin-backs the way follow-backs are done in other places.
I resisted Pinterest for many years thinking it was a just another site to build. But in an effort to attract more readers to my hubs, I decided to try it. I followed the rules as outlined in the hubpages forum. I added friends and made useful comments to pins. Also follow anyone who follows you. When you first begin, add many people, it is amazing how many follow you back.
I also started actively creating my own boards in on the subjects of my hubs as well as many others. I make a general rule, if someone follows me, I try to repin at least 2 of their pins.
To my surprise, I started seeing a steady stream of traffic from Pinterest. I usually only pin my own hubs once, but somehow people are seeing them. I do notice a surge in traffic to my hubs when I am more active pinning.

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...

I believe I asked this question, or at least part of it, in another forum post, but that is not where the thread began, and it probably got lost. So, I'm starting a new thread.I resisted Pinterest for about a...
