What is ? Pinterest is a social networking site that allows users to visually share, and discover new interests by posting, also known as ‘pinning,’ images or videos to their own or others’ pinboards (i.e. a collection of ‘pins,’ usually with a common theme). Users can either upload images from their computer or pin things they find on the web using the pinterest bookmarklet, pin it button, or just a URL.Image Refrence: http://www.askwebboy.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Organize-Contests.jpg

Why Does Matter ? 1. Traffic Any business that relies on driving a high-volume of website traffic to increase sales, should consider joining pinterest. In fact, early research indicates that pinterest is more effective at driving traffic compared to other social media sites, even Facebook. 2. Links If you are using the “pin It” button on your pages, every single one of your pins will include a link back to the source. However, these are no-follow links and cannot be used to directly impact your SEO strategy. Yet, they still provide marketing value because they allow pinners to encounter content and visit pages in just one click.Image Refrence: http://www.trafficspinners.com/images/huge-seo-traffic.png
