Pinterest is now topping my Google traffic! Will it be Instagram next year?
The marketplace is forecasting Instagram to become the next big traffic generator. I just reviewed my traffic and Pinterest is now generating more traffic than Google for me. What has been your experience? What is your forecast?
I think it depends on your topics. Pinterest has always been my #1 referrer, because my Hubs are very visual, which makes them very pinnable. If I used Instagram as a promotional tool, they'd probably do well there, too, but since IG is now owned by Facebook, which is cracking down on unpaid promotional posts, I don't see it lasting as a good option.
I love pinterest and when I need to get my creative juices flowing I head there. When I just want to share what I create I go to instagram. I click on links from pinterest but not instagram.
I still love Pinterest. It is the best traffic generator for me since I joined. I also joined Google+ but I am not that active there. I don't know about Instagram yet.
For our travel company, Google is by far number 1 in Organic i.e. Natural Listings, Then it's Google Paid (PPC) and then it's all social, so in order
1 Google Organic i.e. Natural Listings
2 Google Paid i.e Google Pay Per Click (PPC)
5 Google Plus

If a hub is not featured does that mean that it doesn't get any search engine traffic from Google or other search engines?

I've been here over 9 months now and am finally seeing bigger traffic increases coming from Google. I've heard hubbers say it takes a while before you see Google traffic but even after 6 months and 50+ hubs it was...
