Pinterest is excellent channel to sell beauty product. By sharing images with other people, this makes sharing more interactive. And i would like to see more sharing from 'X' member then i will follow him.

If you are into fashion (buying and selling) Pinterest is good to make good exposure for your business.

If you have some site on ladies fashion or garments than you expect traffic from that sources,because more than 70% ladies on there.

I tried pinterest, and I forget the reason I set it down; what I can say is it was one of the many websites that didn't garner my second interest.

I would say that if you forum audience is mostly women and you have forum content that contains interesting pictures (like of recipes or crafts or fashion type things) that it can bring you plenty of traffic. Several of our posts (blog and forum) have gotten thousands of Pins which have correlated into thousands of page views.

But again it has to do with if the content of your site fits the demographics of Pinterest.

Here are some other options for content that does well on Pinterest

- funny pictures (LOL Cats, babies, etc)
- inspirational quotes
- beautiful places around the world
- wedding stuff!
- recipes
- adult (ie boozy) drinks
- fashion
- beauty
- celebrities

Also well written articles (with a good picture or infographic!)

And don't forget that you can pin videos too!

Seriously I think Pinterest is something to consider at least trying.

Pinterest has slowly crept into our top 5 sources for traffic.

Nice suggestion. I think it is a good idea to perform. Recently I think search engine is the best way to get traffic. But I think I should try to use pinterest to get traffic for my blog.

Very good post of a lot of useless ones. unless your site uses pictures pinterest is worthless. like if you have a math forum or coding forum the pictures arent going to help you. maybe you get a pin up of your hottest female member but nothing else will help because not relevant.!!

It's all in the audience. As I said above it does well for sites that are geared to women.

However there is a category on Pinterest called "geek"....

I see all kinds of things on Pinterest...

My site IS 85% women so it does work for us. It's all about knowing where your members are spending their time on social media. For us that is Facebook and Pinterest. Twitter, not so much...

It seems to be a very common mentality in the webmaster world that if you can't find a use for something personally then it must be useless. 90% webmasters fail due to inability to think outside the box.

Firstly you can upload pictures to pinterest so you don't need images on your site. Secondly, if you made the right infographic I see no reason why maths or coding couldn't be promoted by images.

what OP says is partly true. everytime i post a link to one of my sites i get about 30 hits to my sites. however, ARIN shows this traffic as google, but really its people being redirected from google, as google search sends you through an iframe by default i believe. not real sure on it but i have noticed quite a bit of traffic increase from pinterest

I never tried Pinterest, but I'll give it a try. I think it might be able to work for my niche, and I'm always looking for new "free" ways to promote my site.

It's not popular in my country, and i have forum on my native language, so pinterest is not of use to me.
