When I first signed up for Pinterest, I had no clue what it was all about. From a business perspective (aka blogger wanting to get more traffic), I was clueless. I kept reading that it’s like a search engine with keywords and SEOs and I needed to figure out the “algorithm”.
Moreover, I kept hearing everyone say how Pinterest is their number one generator for traffic to their blog site. And since my blog is new, I thought this is where I need to start in order to get my blog out there.
Therefore, my goal was to read all the material (some free and some I paid for) I could possibly find in order to start increasing my traffic like these successful Pinterest-ers. I spent countless hours on this endeavor! And this is the reason why, I have summarized my findings for you in this post.
My Pinterest Traffic
First off, all of my Pinterest pins are directly related to my blog posts. And keep in mind that I launched my blog in May 2017.
Here is a screenshot of my pinterest traffic on June 1, 2017. I had 2,068 viewers – not too shabby for a blog that was less than a month old, in my opinion.
By June 30, my viewers increased by almost 300%, as shown below at 5,962 viewers.
And just 26 days later, my total viewers increased by just over 1800%!!
I think it’s safe to say that I finally figured out the Pinterest algorithm and successfully implemented it in July!

I’ve come across many free ebooks or blog posts about Pinterest, however most of them gave you bits and pieces of information.
