Re: The rules on pinning.
This is a 'general rule' thrown around in regards to nearly all social media and social bookmarking sites.
It's not actually 100% correct. What is considered spam varies site to site, as well as the authority of the site you're linking to and what's on it.
The above comments are good advice. I get nice traffic from Pins sometimes and it is good. The trick is to not overdo the pinning or over-pin the same hub and link onto almost all of your pin boards on your Pinterest account.
If you have linked a Twitter account to - lets say - your Facebook page, by sending a great Pin to your twitter, you get to see it go on 3 social media platforms in one go. If you add something to the mix like Stumbleupon, you can do even better. But woe betide any hubber posting pure dross on some of those social media as people will unfollow you faster than anything. People like interesting things to read.
By making hubs that are original and unique, everyone will read them.

Does anyone get traffic from Pinterest anymore? Most of my traffic is from repins. I get virtually no traffic from pins I made in the last year and none of them have been repinned.

Heads up! As part of a traffic experiment, we changed the number of Hubs listed in the Related Hubs section to eight instead of five. We expect the experiment to last about a week, but wanted to let everyone know that the change is not permanent. Please check out this thread for background...

I have been pinning my Hubs on Pinterest for a few months now, and about 70 of my Hubs are now pinned. I have also had several of my pins to Hubs shared by others on Pinterest. Despite all of this, I do not have one single click from Pinterest showing up in my HubPages traffic...
