The Pinterest Experiment – week 1 results

how to get pageviews from pinterest

It’s been a week since I started using Tailwind with Pinterest to help get better results. It’s now time to share how I got on.

Pinterest is said to be one of the best ways to drive traffic to your blog with the use of eye-catching graphics and click-bait titles. More and more people are using the website as a search engine – meaning there are views to be had.

Let’s start with the most important thing first – the statistics.

Much better than last weeks 0 domain pins and 9 followers!

These stats are also pretty impressive. I’ve gone from less than 100 daily impressions to 900!

Now, these numbers seem quite impressing. But how is this actually translating to views?

Well, it is increasing. But very slowly. Let me show you have many views I got from Pinterest each day

Sessions from Pinterest

Saturday: 1
Sunday: 7
Monday: 3
Tuesday: 4
Wednesday: 5
Thursday: 5
Friday: 6

Total sessions:31

900 impressions are great – but as you can see it doesn’t translate to actual views. Though the numbers are going in the right direction and if I can aim to get them in double figures, we’re talking 300 views a month which I’m going to make my initial goal when it comes to getting views from Pinterest.

Here’s what I’ve been doing over the past week:

  • Using Tailwind to schedule 50 pins a day. A mixture of my own content and other peoples.
  • I’ve made different images for the same blog posts to see if different images get different amounts of attention.
  • I’ve made board covers for my most used boards.
  • I’ve been using Tribes on Tailwind to get people to re-pin my content in exchange of re-pinning theirs.
  • Making my first 5 pins after 1 am my own content – which is supposedly the ones Pinterest will display the most. (midnight UTC)

What I plan to do next:

  • Carry on with my 50 pins a day
  • Continue to use tribes
  • Create new images for old posts and schedule them.
  • Keep 800 pins scheduled at all time.

If anyone has any tips, I’d be happy to hear them!
