    You wont bring traffic to your site unless you got some fancy pictures on it. that's how pinterest works, You cant even pin your page unless you got photo in it. But yea it can be good for traffic

    I have used Pinterest for several weeks and I can vouch that I have received traffic from links posted there.  It is easy to pin a page for me as I have installed a browser button that allows me to pin any page I may be viewing. Simple and quick. Once pinned you have created a backlink as well.

    I joined pinterest a couple of weeks ago. Pinned some of my own hubs and also some of others. I don't think it is going to work for me. I followed some people there on pinterest but anyone has yet to follow me. If only I could find other hubbers there to follow and be followed.

    I've been fooling around with Pinterest for a couple of weeks but I've only seen minimal traffic coming from it. I guess it works if you're "pinning" the right material.

    I joined them yesterday and they emailed me stating i'm on their waiting list and will be invited soon. I  have not heard anything yet. They must be getting a lot of traffic or they don't work on the weekends...I don't know...I would think this is all done by computer, but who knows.

    Yes I can, I hope that what I write provides some insight into the subjects that I know and have experience in or about.  Hopefully sharing my knowledge and experiences that I have gained to date will help others.

    Hi Rajan, I have had a fair amount of traffic from Pinterest. I enjoy the site for my personal use and I don't just pin hubs. There are several beautiful and interesting sites and things to see and explore. It is a great place for inspiring ideas and trends too. As for promoting hubs, I agree with those above - having great pictures are very important for grabbing attention. The various boards make it easy to organize your hubs and sites by topic areas. According to my traffic sources on my accounts page - I've had over 200 views from pintrest in a month. I also noticed a greater increase of pinterest traffic since HP added the 'Pin" icon. So yes, I do see it as a wonderful opportunity to increase visibility and drive external traffic to my hubs. This in-turn helps create opportunities for back-links. Many pinners have their own blogs and might choose to feature your hub on their site. Pinners also tweet and share on Facebook. smile

    Tip - Try not to just follower hubbers. Expand your follow/follower base. This will help bring in visibility from the general public.

    Great question Rajan - thanks for asking. By the way, I see lots of nice 'Healthy' articles on pinterest and I have a 'healthy board' on pinterest. Your hubs would do awesome on there with eye-catching fresh pictures. See you there smile
