pinterest is a social network that allows users to visually share, curate, and discover new

interests by posting, also known as pinning, images or videos to their own or others pinboards

(i.e. a collection of pins, usually with a common theme). users can either upload images from

their computer or pin things they find on the web using the pinterest bookmarklet, pin it button,

or just a url.

one can browse through the items other users have pinned and like, repin or comment on

them. As with most other social networks, members are encouraged to interact with the content

by reposting it, sharing others pins on facebook and Twitter or via email, and even embedding

individual pins on their website or blog.

using a visual emphasis, the social network is very much focused on the concept of a persons

lifestyle, enabling you to share your interests and preferences with others and discover those of

like-minded people. As pinterest put it, this is a social network meant to connect everyone in

the world through the things they find interesting.

Any business that relies on driving a high-volume of website traffic to increase sales, should

consider joining pinterest. In fact, early research indicates that pinterest is more effective at

driving traffic compared to other social media sites, even facebook.

In october, the website of Time Inc.s real Simple magazine got more traffic

from pinterest than facebook. (source)

eye glass retailer warbly parker reports that 11% of their social traffic is

coming from pinterest compared to 18% from Twitter. (source)

After blogger kate bryan started pinning her work, she has had more than 10

million page views and has attracted 16,000 blog subscribers. My top 10

traffic referring urls are all pinterest, says kate. (source)

If you are using the pin It button on your pages, every single one of your pins will include a

link back to the source. That is why HubSpots blog has accumulated more than 640 links from

pinterest in just two weeks. However, these are no-follow links and cannot be used to directly

impact your Seo strategy. yet, they still provide marketing value because they allow pinners to

encounter your content and visit your pages in just one click.

lastly, pinterest will soon start contributing to lead generation. So far, HubSpot has generated a
