    There is a lot of talk about Pinterest, my friend told me that it can bring a lot of traffic to your blog, but I just thought it was too good to be true. But if it has so many users probably it has proved to be effective and I should also try it.

    I do agree that Pinterest can really bring traffic to your blog, judging by the number of people who are already using this social media. People have been talking about this ever since its emergence, and the growth rate of the users was really surprising. Ignoring this would mean that you’re ignoring those people who are hooked to it.

    Initially I didnt see the business upside to Pinterest but after being on it for a few months I get it now. The visual dynamic makes it appealing really for everyone. No one has to feel left out as it is a pretty simple platform to use. I’m definitely linking my blog to Pinterest as I’m seeing many marketers generating traffic to their blog from Pinterest.

    Pinterest is a great site, though i detest the logo. Maker probably got the idea from pin boards we have in school. For marketing, it has great potential as you rightly put it. Great post. Keep up the good work.
