i just noticed a few days ago that I received more traffic from my Pinterest page than google! How is that possible? is anyone else seeing this?
Yes many people see this happen. Why is it so hard to believe
One of my hubs constantly receives Pinterest traffic, it's a seasonal hub and there's just 3 months in the year that google traffic shoots up. The rest of the year it's mainly pinterest.
Definitely possible it is a great source of traffic and one of my own favourite sites.
Pinterest is my number one source for traffic. I think the "problem" with Google is that anything written for Hub Pages doesn't get good placement. Also when people are looking at Google results, they are less likely to click on something from Hub Pages. I have been guilty of this myself. It's a result of years of really, really bad writing on HP. I don't want to waste my time reading something that is poorly written and/or riddled with factual errors. If I know the author, I will click the link. Otherwise, I just skip over it.
Pinterest is a fantastic source of traffic for any topic
Pinterest is my #2 source of traffic on Hubpages and all the sites I own. Images can go viral over and over again.
I am beginning to post my Hubs on Pinterest, as well. It is a source of traffic for me, but I am also looking for other traffic sources. Any suggestions?
Yes, Flipboard, read Glenn Stock's article on how to learn how to use it.
I suggest you set up a Wordpress or Weebly blog, and showcase your writing more, extend your reach. You can also set up a free Twitter and Facebook account, where you will get noticed quickly for your good writing. Using social media can grow your audience. I also use Pinterest and it's a great slow boiler way to accrue followers and pinners.
I would say my Google traffic has plummeted to record rock bottom that even my low Pinterest traffic is now "more than" Google's!

I see a lot of queries about getting traffic, lack of traffic, how to increase traffic, etc. The long answer is it takes time, hard work, good writing skills, mastery of the formula, surviving Google algorithms, and persistence. The short answer is figuring out the secrets of online writing and how...

I have been reading older forum posts and doing some research on my own for this question. I know some Hubers have great success with Pinterest so I would love to hear what you are doing that works. Thank you.

Hello Hubbers!I wanted some help with getting traffic. I seem to get a spike in traffic right after my hubs are published. I share it with my friends, that's it. Most of my traffic comes from HubPages itself. Of the 900 reads I've ever gotten, 600 come from HP and the rest come from multiple...

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! (currently 16 visits per minute). Might be worth looking into as an alternative...
