I love Pinterest. It is one of my favorite traffic sources (behind SEO) to generate new readers to my sites.
A few fun facts about Pinterest:
- Pinterest is in the top 20 websites in the United States.
- 50 - 70 million monthly users.
- It is a SEARCH ENGINE.
- Boards rank in the top SERPs with search engines.
Pinterest is the top social media platform that I see a lot of real estate agents not using (or not using properly) as part of their real estate marketing plan.

For those who would like to learn more about Pinterest, I have created a Facebook group for real estate agents who want to network and learn about how to use the power of Pinterest to gain traffic.
I prefer to see a "balanced" traffic source for websites and below is an example of one website and the traffic sources. Do you see that 33% of the traffic from this site comes from social media?!
Now let's take a look at the same website but with the "social" source broken down into a pie chart. For this time period 75% of the social media traffic was from Pinterest! (To "even" out this fact, I have been backing off of using other social media to test Pinterest more and therefore the percentage is a bit skewed because of this.)
