How long does it take for Pinterest to have an effect on Hub Page views?
I signed up on 11-1; today is 11-12, and I have followed 30 people, "pinned" a bunch of stuff, and have only 6 followers myself so far. Obviously, I guess it's too soon to see an effect on page views here, but I was just wondering what are others' experiences?
There's a multi-part answer to this:
1. It takes time and involvement on Pinterest to get organic followers. You definitely need to follow a lot more than 30 people. I spent years building up my following and now it's at almost 28,000 people. But I worked very hard to get there.
2. Even if you have a lot of followers, it's important to have "pinnable" images that are appealing to people on Pinterest. Marketing-type and strictly informational images usually don't fly. It's a very visual site, so you need to pin images that link to your site that people actually want to repin.
3. Having said that, I'm sure there's some SEO value to your pins, even if other people don't pin them. But as with all links, they take time to blossom.
BTW, you can speed up the process of getting followers by using Pinwoot.com, which allows you to generate more followers for free.
Hope this helps!
Thanks for that tip wordplay - I have now just joined pinwoot as I was just working on building up Pinterest. Thanks DzyMsLizzy for asking a great question I needed answering too.
Only about 2% or less of my Pinterest traffic is generated via my personal Pinterest account.
Most of my traffic is generated by people who visit my hubs pinning my MFP images straight from my hub.
It's also important to have a LOT of images and use plenty of descriptive words. For instance if you have a picture of a birthday cake, you wouldn't just put "Cake" in the description, you'd put "Toddler unicorn rainbow cake recipe". Then, when another Pinterest member is searching "Rainbow cake recipe" or "Unicorn cake" or "Toddler cake", YOUR image is more likely to come up in their search.

hitting 20'000 page views a day within one year....can it be done? what will it take?

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...

Anyone here used to write for Suite101? They've gone through a number of permutations and seem now to have disappeared altogether.It's not just casual interest; I'm trying to track down why the income has stopped (that'll always make a writer pay attention!) I'm a former writer for...

Is anyone else seeing a strange spike today? I've been getting less than 10 page views per day lately, but it's over 500 today and still rising. The source is undetectable using Analytics, Webmaster Tools, or HubPages Sources. I'm still getting 0 from Google and less than 20 from HubPages.What's...

I get a bit confused while I see someone talking about big earner hubs. What is a big earner hub... in the sense that it gets a lot of page views, not in terms of high paying keywords embedded in it? Let me be a bit more specific, "How many monthly page views can make a hub a big earner"?...
