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

This might be a complete co-incidence, but I switched to the new profile a couple of days ago, and today Google is pretending it doesn't know me. Hubs that ranked on the first page for main keyword are not found...

How can I get Google traffic?I get traffic from other places but barely from Google. Does it only depend on my use of SEO or are there other things to get traffic from there.
