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.

I have been reading older forum posts and doing some research on my own for this question. I know some Hubers have great success with Pinterest so I would love to hear what you are doing that works. Thank you.

Would you like me to follow you on Pinterest?I recently joined Pinterest because I've been seeing an increase in traffic from there. (Thanks to the people who pinned my hubs!!) Because it obviously helps to be following others, I'm more than happy to follow other hubbers.I'm wondering if it would...

Hi-- I tried adding this to bump my prior thread, but it got buried, so I'm posting a new thread. (Sorry)1) On the page that shows the people who are following you, what does it mean, when some of them have a check mark in a gray circle at the upper right of their image? ...

How do you transfer other people's boards to your pinterest site?I would like to have other people's boards with similar topics on my site. I think this would benefit both of us.

I believe I asked this question, or at least part of it, in another forum post, but that is not where the thread began, and it probably got lost. So, I'm starting a new thread.I resisted Pinterest for about a year, after hearing all sorts of bad things about losing your copyright. I...
