  • I have used pinterest on my site and the result was awesome, my site jumped from #120 to #3 in less than 3 weeks time.

    The key is we must got our website pinned and repinned by many people, which is the toughest part. Most of pinterest users won't doing repin when they aren't like what we pinned.

    I do simple thing to outsource it on fiverr and got my site pinned by 75 people, I don't know how can he did it just search by typing pinterest on fiverr and you will find it on the TOP. Many other seller offer pinterest service on fiverr but in my experience they can't make my website increase in SEO. I don't know why.

    As I know currently pinterest is best for SEO for these reasons:
    1. Once our website pinned it has 3 backlinks counts.
    2. Even not support anchor text (except the url link), it's still perfect for placing our keywords in description. Google will FIND it!!
    3. You need to ping the links of your pins to the to get your website increase in SEO.
    4. Obama The President and Mark Zuckerberg now pinning on Pinterest lol.
