    How are you guys getting exposure via sharing on Pinterest? Just sharing to your own boards and people pick them up? Thanks.

      That's exactly what I do Jesse, just share to my own boards and my followers repin them. I get just as many if not more views through Pinterest than Google.

      Yep, what Jodah said. For me as to percentages, I just checked and 20% to 25% of my traffic in the last 30 days came from Pinterest.

    Mostly pin on my own boards and get repins. Lately have been following or pinning more of others onto mine. I get steady activity from Pinterest but not a lot. Here's the breakdown from most traffic to least traffic:
    Google (roughly, 85-90%)

      Ya know... I haven't repinned any other pinners' pins in ages. So I worked up the energy to do a couple. I have no idea what the culture is there as to people there doing pin-backs the way follow-backs are done in other places.

    I resisted Pinterest for many years thinking it was a just another site to build. But in an effort to attract more readers  to my hubs, I decided to try it. I followed the rules as outlined in the hubpages forum. I added friends and made useful comments to pins. Also follow anyone who follows you. When you first begin, add many  people, it is amazing how many follow you back.

    I also started actively creating my own boards in on the subjects of my hubs as well as many others. I make a general rule, if someone follows me, I try to repin at least 2 of their pins.

    To my surprise, I started seeing a steady stream of traffic from Pinterest. I usually only pin my own hubs once, but somehow people are seeing them. I do notice a surge in traffic to my hubs when I am more active pinning.

      At least half of my views come from Pinterest.  For someone like myself who writes about a craft, it is essential.  My pins are repinned daily.  I love Pinterest.

    Pin, follow, re-pin, then repeat on a regular basis.
