    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 be advantageous for all of us to follow or 'like' each other ...  Anyway, I'm willing to follow hubbers who give their Pinterest names in the comments here. No surprises with my name there, I am LTM LongTimeMother.  Anyone interested in swapping follows?

    Hi LongTimeMother, great idea!  Here's my Pinterest link: http://pinterest.com/CareerMother/.  I will follow you as well!

    I don't know whether the big batch of followers suddenly showing up can be attributed to hp or to natural growth as my pins spread, but I'm just following back everyone who shows up on my page.

    I guess the value of putting your pin name on this thread is that other hubbers who pin can also look for you.  smile

    Hello! If you want to gain a good follower gathering, try to keep your board in similar topics and re-pin Pinterest members in the same genre as you. I wrote a Hub on improving your Pinterest search engine rankings if you are interested!

    *Creating community boards also helps!

      Hi Joseph. Welcome to HP. Good topic for your first hub.  As a pro photographer, pinning should be heaven for you.  Via my Profile page there's a hub about using text capsules etc that might help lift your ratings so more people see it.  smile

    Yes, please.  There is not much to follow yet, since I am new to Pinterest and still kind of figuring it all out, but will take all the help and support I can get, thank you!  Address is http://pinterest.com/dreolan/.  I will follow in return....as soon as I get that figuring out thing down.

      Hi Dreolan.  I found you on pinterest. As soon as you create a board, I'll jump in as a follower. (Giving you incentive to be brave and try creating one, lol.)  Followed you here at HP already though. Lots of interesting topics.  See you round.  smile

    I will look at the HubPages profiles of those who have expressed interest (on this page) in being followed or doing following on Pinterest, and hope to find their Pinterest link there too. I hope some do the same for me. I don't like to leave self-promoting links in comments, and I think it is discouraged by HubPages.

    I like using Pinterest to gather ideas into albums (Pinterest boards) and sometimes also like to pin images from my own sites in the hope that doing so will increase traffic to my sites if other Pinterest members repin my pins.

    However, I think following and re-pinning should be done only if the images in somebody's board really interest the follower. Although it's good to stick to a niche when promoting your own site's pins on Pinterest, I do also think it's good to have a variety of images or boards, (and different types of images on your own sites) in an effort to gain Pinterest followers (and repinners) who wouldn't have normally been interested in the main topic of one's site that one is trying to promote on Pinterest.

    Also, on Pinterest, I try to remember to take note of where the pin I want to repin is linking to - if it's just to Google or Bing or a site using somebody else's images (with no credit to the original creator of the image), instead of to the image's original source site, I don't like to repin the pin. This is a pain sometimes when I want to store an idea in one of my Pinterest boards, but then first have to go look for the original source of the image instead of simply repinning somebody else's pin! I slip up sometimes, I think, and really should find the time to go through all my pins and check if I should have been repinning some or not.

    Looks like I've used this answer to give myself a talking to, or I got side-tracked. I'm going to stop blabbing and go find you all on Pinterest.

    Update: have followed at least one board on all of your Pinterest accounts (of all who have answered this question so far). I encourage you all, other than JosephSorbara to get some more boards and pins up.

      Hello Teresa. It would be bad form to leave a self-promoting link in the comments on someone's hub, but this is a question where I invited pinterest names, so I consider links in these comments to be helpful shortcuts. smile  Followed you back. Thanks.

    Last year pinterest reported hub pages for spamming and so I think we need to be cautious.  I usually pin recipe hubs on my boards and share hubs I like with my followers on hub pages.  I am not saying this is not a good idea, just that we should be cautious.

    1. LongTimeMother profile image95
      LongTimeMotherposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Thanks for the thought Lizam1. Pinterest encourages people to find their friends on facebook, invite them to join, then follow them. This is just a hubber's equivalent.   Feel free to leave your pin name or link if you want to join in. smile

      My problem with checking out people's boards too often is my satellite internet connection. Some days it would be nice to be back on the grid to take full advantage of technology. smile

      Hi Paul. Welcome to HP. There seems to be a few pinners with your name, so I'll have to wait for you to follow me first. If you add another comment here with a link to your pin page, other hubbers will be able to find you on pinterest too. smile
