    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)
    3 Twitter
    4 Facebook
    5 Google Plus
    6 Pingtest
    7 Instagram
