230% Increase in Traffic, Pinterest Rocks!

Last Update: August 18, 2020

Hey Amazing Community, I hope y’all doing great!

Just a quick post to share with you how one Pinterest pin could greatly impact your website traffic.

I haven’t checked my Google Analytics for a couple of weeks because the last time I did, my daily traffic was sitting at 280-320. It has been like this for more than six months and so I thought I’d avoid checking it often.

But yesterday after submitting my latest post to Google Search Console for indexing, I couldn’t resist the urge to do so. To my surprise, there was a sudden spike in my traffic for August 16 as the number of daily users went up to 724, the highest so far in three years (My website is 3 years and 2 months old).

This is mainly due to a Pinterest pin I published on August 12. My average daily visitors through Pinterest are 25 but on August 16 it registered a record high of 475. This got me so excited that I wanted to share it with the community so I took a screenshot.

But before writing this blog post, I decided to check again to see if there was any significant change and sure enough, the daily users for August 17 are 1,131; that’s a 231.7% increase. And 894 of them came to my site through that same Pinterest pin, which has 362K impressions, 9.2K re-pins, and 1.2K web clicks (as of this writing).

Below are the screenshots.

This is to encourage those who are still not sure if Pinterest is worth trying. Just be consistent with your pins and re-pins. And don’t forget to use keywords because they also play a major role.

Please do share your experience with Pinterest.


P.S. I am hopeful that this traffic spike would result in SALES. ☺

Hi Alice,

That's great news! It's amazing how using Pinterest can be very beneficial to getting traffic.

I've gone all in on Pinterest lately, and pleased with the results I've gotten so far. It's only a matter of keeping up with it- my issue at the moment. Persistency is key, so this post motivated me to keep plugging away.

Kudos to you on your traffic increase via Pinterest. Thanks for sharing.

Congrats. I have yet to find success with Pinterest, but maybe I’m just. not pinning the right things.

You can always change your strategy based on your results. But the most important tip I could give you is to use targeted keywords. Visuals do help as well as the message but if you are not using the right keywords, it's no use.
