  • My experience with pinterest:

    I've used pinterest to optimize my site's ranking and the outcome was good, it has improved from page 6 to 4rd spot of 1st page within 3 weeks.

    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 improve my SERP's ranking. I've tried 5 other sellers who offer pinterest gigs on Fiverr but they can't improve my site's ranking. I don't know why.

    After using pinterest for SEO for quite some time, I've discovered some of its benefits:
    - Google loves social media signal.
    - Each pin is considered as 3 inbound links.
    - Links and images from pinterest are dofollow.
    - Remember to ping the links of the pins to get indexed by Google.
