If you are a new blogger, there is nothing more frustrating than getting zero traffic. What’s the point of spending all this time blogging if nobody is going to see it?
Even if you are doing everything right as far as SEO is concerned, it can still take some time to grow your search traffic. Google’s indexing bots have to discover your site, index your pages, and refresh their SERPs before you start to appear.
What can you do in the meantime?
That’s where social media comes in, and specifically Pinterest. Pinterest may not have the most traffic of all the social media sites, but it does bring in 3.6% of all referral traffic, and that’s the statistic that matters. With Pinterest, you start on a more level playing field, and it is relatively easy to begin gaining a following.
