  • My experience with pinterest:

    I have used pinterest to improve my site's ranking and it has improved from page 7 to #3 spot in 3 weeks time.

    I found that the seller named 'pinterest', which ranked first when you search 'pinterest' at Fiverr, has produced the best results on my websites. The seller pins my site with 75 different people, not sure how he did this, but it has improved my SERP's ranking. I've tried 5 other sellers who offer similar gigs on Fiverr but they can't improve my site's ranking. I don't know why. Maybe he has magical trick. lol.

    Some benefits of pinterest for seo:
    - Google loves social media signal.
    - Links and images from pinterest are dofollow!
    - Each pin is considered as 3 inbound links.
