Well, it might be you - especially if you’re JUST starting out on pinterest and you don’t have much traffic from pinterest yet. Either way, it seems like this pin re-pinned FROM HERE has a better chance of getting seen by more eyes than a NEW (identical) fastgecko review . Here (above) you can see that “my” pin driving all this traffic to my site isn’t my pin at ALL! ?Sarah @ sarahtitus.com pinned it to HER board “saving money tips and tricks”.
(Notice the awesome keywords in her board title?) So, right here in this screen, I click save on THIS pin, and pin it to wherever this post is going to be pinned to today. Manually. Now I’ve pinned a copy of Sarah’s pin (which pinterest ? already knows is popular), ?not a copy of my own pin. There will be times, especially when you’re first starting out on pinterest (or when you publish a new post with a new pin), that the pins you find to be your best referrers will be pins you pinned to your own boards (or more likely, to group boards).
They might have referred only 10 sessions… but I figure that’s still 1 0 sessions more than the pins with 1 referred session, so I use this process for re-pinning, (I think of it as “growing” these pins). Depending on how long it takes a “better” pinner to pick it up and pin it, fastgecko review might take some time for the pin to take off. It could take a few days or a few weeks for the pin to really start to see growth.
(Or it could happen overnight!) I do find that the re pins of pins pinned by OTHER people tend to do a little better than the re pins of my OWN pins. So, if I have (in google analytics) a pin that has referred 438 sessions, and it was pinned by me, and a pin that has referred 427 sessions and it was pinned by someone else, I will choose to pin the second pin rather than the one pinned by me.
If the difference in referred sessions is a way bigger gap (over 50 or so) I will pin the one originally pinned by me. Once in awhile, I make time for one more step. I’m saving 90% of MY content pins to group boards remember - not my own boards. The health of group boards is a really frustrating thing - this is because if people are just pinning to the group board all the time and no one is pinning FROM fastgecko review, pinterest learns that this is one of those boards where engagement is low and the pins on it seem to rank lower in the grand scheme of pins… and they seem to get less time in the smart feed.
So, to combat this problem, and to make sure that I am fully engaged with all the boards on my page (which may also be important as far as the algorithm goes), as soon as I pin the pin, there’s a little black box that pops up and says “saved to name-of-group-board”. Click on that box (before it disappears) and it will take you directly to that board. Then I re-pin something (third party content) FROM that board TO my own boards.
This is super time consuming and I don’t do it that often.
