Updated 05/04/2020 - My own method is detailed here on this one page. This creates masses of new followers daily and provides the capability for you to turn new web traffic on and off easily! I have been using web every day for decades! + I still use core.ftp all the time = must be 30 years! Here is the method that will help you get more web visitors  - This takes ten minutes to read. To see a shorter version click here below >


 Stick around, this is "THE" page which explains how you can develop and grow your own Pinterest account and build many THOUSANDS of followers! + How your following can create SIGNIFICANT web/blog traffic at ZERO COST! - Using this you will also be able to help others !!!

This is now a tried and tested method, it is all right here! "thousands" are using it now! It is working everywhere -  stick around - OR bookmark it and come back.

If you are already a P user and would like to test your own Pinterest boards with a higher volume of visits - I am accepting "shared P boards" which will easily feed traffic to your own boards - All I need is your web and / or P address - I can then create the very best sharing. If you don't have a web address and want one I can set it up for you in a few seconds! (like this one below - just now set up for Kellie "my daughter".  I suggested a few ways to increase traffic today - check back if she agrees!!!)

At The Drop of a Hat

Every comment is welcome - I "need" to know > if this page is helping you? Your comments help guide me towards what can be even more helpful to others???

All information here is researched and tested by myself - Ricardo "recently-retired-serial-entrepreneur". On this page are some of my most successful pins so far - ask yourself why each has been pinned over and over again?

Note: ALL the images on this page are easy for you to re-pin AND are all good performers!


This is a very DEEP study, it is keeping my brain active for sure! - What I first noticed is this: When researching the web for - "things" OR "inspiration" Pinterest makes this a LOT easier: HOW-? Pinning images using an organised board structure creates "Your own Bank of easy to find links that drive traffic to your site"

When clicked these indiviual Pins can easily be tagged to lead back to the web-page from where they came. With one click you can create a "bookmark - pin" for the appropriate web page + when clicked by your visitors, this results in "TOTALLY FREE" web traffic for YOU the site owner + it also enables visitors to find your boards easily again and again".

Pins from web-sites carry links - this is what makes finding new buyers much easier -  "how simple is that"!



I have developed for a full set of daily P routines "ALL are described here below" - keep reading!

You are visiting, along with a thousand others per day - "ALL" web traffic to this page is generated completely FREE with my own use of Pinterest!

These "unique" processes generate targetted web traffic for you at NO cost. Using this myself I can turn web traffic on and off as easily as using our kitchen tap (see one below)! If you know anyone with a website who would like more "free traffic" (who wouldn't) - let them know!


The "most" important information from my study so far is all here on this one page / after you see the tap is "Grumpy Cat" who passed away recently - "he was "so-far" the most famous interenet cat that lived"! You can see more about him here >

Grumpy the Famous Feline

Reading this page can take another 8 minutes! For an overview there is a "quicker version" click here >


Don't worry - understanding all should be easy - Please let me know if not! - I can "and do" update this in just a few seconds based on feedback arriving daily!

Pinterest is a great platform for companies AND individuals to create "boards" with content that has visual appeal + contains "your own" chosen inbuilt links ... Simply harnessing the power of Pinterest, you will have a VERY powerful marketing tool. Main boards can have sections e.g.  My Brexit board has sections to make stuff easier to find - how boring is that?


Over the last 10 weeks just gone - I have been managing my own Pinterest board followers from 19K towards and past 20K. Leading up to 27K + For some reason the followers growth changed from being fairly stable at +150 ish per day (eight per hour-ish) to a random = none for six hours then eight hours later 100+ all at once. It seemed like something was going wrong - I simply don't know what caused this - I have found ALL the reasons and updated right here (job done)!!


We are now recruiting for a third trainee to learn P - then teach others - this can be done from "anywhere" - email your CV to richardgrace1@gmail.com I will reply asap.

I have opened an Amazon sales account based on this and am working on Dropshipping (high ticket items). How this works is this: When visitors click "for-sale" pins the inbuilt link takes them direct to the appropriate Amazon buying page - Using this method Amazon handle everything + pay me 2% for from each sale (not much - BUT - there are NO costs for me).

My original thinking was to start by building a BIG following (this is now "sort-of" done +  new followers are being added continuously). My current thinking remains > that it is important to develop and grow a good / large audience of "followers" BEFORE experimenting with selling stuff.


For new Pinners! Shared sales boards and other ideas are welcome on my own P site (these are working well) - email me direct if you want to share any of your own boards. My Pinterest boards are now in the TOP 7% for traffic generation and continue to grow daily! This is now a highly successful project "you can read my entrepreneurs help - page here" >>

Read by entrepreneurs all over the world

This page you are on is all about - FREE "Tested Ideas" to share with ALL P users both business and personal. The information is here to help you organise your own stuff + get things found. Pinterest makes it easier to find businesses (using inbuilt FREE web traffic generation) "that means ZERO cost advertising".


For research alone Pinterest is "a fantastic tool" e.g. I have collected and pinned nearly 2 "THOUSAND" pins all leading to "Brexit Stories" (How boring is that!) "I did this to demonstrate the power of Pinterest for research" You can see how my Brexit integrated Pinterest boards work on another webpage right here (this has been VERY busy) >

 Brexit - what a mess it is!

+ Here below is my Pinterest integrated Brexit "web page"  It's the combination of website AND Pinterest (2000+ pin links) these tell a story and drive web traffic!

Brexit on Pinterest Boards  


This page updated - 05/04/2020: -- I have followed ALL P News daily now for 24 MONTHS  - There is more every single day. The "quick view info is all here" click >>



If you are researching about starting a "dropshipping" or "affiliate - marketing" sales business yourself with web traffic generated on Pinterest I can advise / consult / help (contact me by email clickable links are below) -  A few weeks ago I was offered 10KUSD-$ for my Pinterest account - it had 12K followers then -  It's 27K+ now! so it must be the going up in value! "However" - I am retired and need my P account, (it's keeping my brain active!). It will be 30K+ in followers soon - I hope! (these kind of numbers make generation of web traffic using P what I call a "no brainer")


Regarding the "Shared Board" part of the project (you can see this in action on my P site - it's the boards with photo circles bottom left) ! * I just added an International user stats page - (link in menu is above).


The dropshipping button takes you to a full explanation written by DD "THE DS specialist" (he gave me full publishing permission) and IS the "world's expert" on this subject. My own Dropshipping site (under development) is coming very very soon. Dropshipping itself is a big part of what is killing our shops - (my view is that this cannot be stopped). I live in Chester UK which is "WORLD" famous for it's shops "The Rows" we don't want to loose them that's for sure! I have an idea how to save them (it involves focussing totally on tourism!) - there does seem to be interest in this! - That's "INTEREST" NOT Pinterest!

Which Pin is a winner? + Who knows and why?

  + Here below are the answers to - "why you should use Pinterest for your business"
The recent Pinterest Capital Raising "was a success" - a "VERY basic (what I call) "quick and dirty" review is right here:  

Founded in 2009, Pinterest provides a social media / information search system to find stuff and organise images, typically photos, recipes and short movies. The key to success is that many of these Pins carry clickable links to appropriate web-pages - “Pinterest inspires users to discover and sort images that they love and save these as bookmarks to info sources. It engenders creativity and allows easy / tidy collecting of ideas.” At the same time it is now becoming one of "THE MAIN" drivers of traffic to websites worldwide. It "simply cannot be ignored by businesses" - in particular where images are important.


P is simple to use but a very powerful and a VERY effective e-commerce / platform. Revenues from advertising are expected to hit $1.8 billion next year. There are worldwide, more than 300 million active users right-now.

Pinterest is in the top-five mobile apps. One third of users access their own accounts on a daily basis.

 P - Current valuation is close to >   $15 billion. (News here updated as it happens)


So - ALL here is written by "me" Ricardo here in Chester UK ( ex-corporate business planner / 20+ years a serial-entrepreneur / now "sort-of" retired) - Visits to this page are coming from all over the world, I am answering  questions daily by email, you can ask here in any language (all my pages have Google translate built in) + if you send your website url I can advise free of any charge on the potential of Pinterest integration on your own website > richardgrace1@gmail.com (I can usually reply within 2 days). Information here is updated constantly with developing knowledge!

My Advice

I advise on: Setup and development of your own P structure including quick and easy "website integration" + the code for your own website and it's installation. Further services include help with monetisation, affiliate selling and drop-shipping. + An important piece of information that I believe is known to myself ONLY. How best to generate and post mulitiple pins, "quick and easy" which ALL carry your own webpage url.


P is for sure the best way to grow web traffic at virtually NO cost! - "as far as I am aware" my method described "right here" is unique!

How to manage - Viral Pins.

 I have now completed a study of how to develop and track "VIRAL PINS". In the last couple of months I collected the data on 120+. This process has involved, a "LOT" of experimentation, now "IT WORKS" + has created many thousands of web visits to this page - I am developing "a process" to do this by specific location. I am not finding that as easy! If you know any reason please help! So far I have built 1 only "localised board" and that is for Chester UK. (Chester is a Roman City - small - but attracts a mass of tourists - this is a big part of our own local economy) see: >> Chester Tourist Guide

 Should you have Pinterest Save buttons on your own website?

 Answer = "YES ABSOLUTELY AND SOON": Pinterest Save buttons encourage people to pin your website images + make this easier (this is what creates your free traffic). Once you install the P button visitors can easily save and pin your images which then automatically carry inbuilt links back to your website. If your images are good they are re-pinned - the result is an exponential increase in your website visitors at ZERO cost!  - How simple is that! (I always reffered to stuff like this as a "no-brainer" but so many websites are still not doing this yet!).

What do Pinterest themselves recommend?

I recommend that you also download / read the free "Pinterest Business Best Practice Guide" it is available to download right here as a .pdf file. This takes one minute only (to download) but worth reading! Here it is - click here > Pinterest Best Practice Guide I have referenced this in my project many times.


Further free info all about finding followers (this is good but a BIG read). Click here to download so you can read it off line when you have time! > Pinterest Followers Guide It's a (.pdf) file.  Each pinnable image on this page is tested - I have made sure it is repinned and liked a lot - I have no idea why - I work with numbers - "mostly"!

 So - step by step  - "How to start and how to generate new, no-cost additional web traffic using Pinterest".

It works. Do this "now" the result "WILL" be - more discovery and more sales for less cost!

The images right here on this page have ALL been chosen / pinned by myself - the first one does well - the second one went "viral" and so did the third one. I am a "self-taught" expert at understanding how to use and integrate Pinterest in web marketing from a technical viewpoint - I understand this "upside down and inside out". One thing for sure - if images of your products could perform anything even approaching the performance I achieve then your sales will "sky-rocket" for the lowest cost outlay imaginable. I have astounding figures as a result of this research.

 Growth of followers

 Here are the ways to accelerate growth whilst maintaining cross traffic generation (you will easily have followers growing at +10% per week) - my Pinterest site views are currently over 4 MILLION viewers per MONTH! - You can increase your own web traffic = Pinterest is certainly the way forward for you. (there are 95 thousand + Pins on my own boards so far)

It's now becoming expected for all "visualy important" websites to have Pinterest integration - so here is just a "bit" more on how it works;

All images here "when pinned" carry inbuilt links directly back to this page. This generates the web traffic which, as a result increases daily. The 1st one you can see below is called a "rich pin" and carries live the number of times it has been repinned. You can see the number of times it has been re-pinned. From this type the escalating re-pins can be MASSIVE! - if each new destination pin board attracts the same, in a short time it will have reached millions of views / "these are new business opportunities at a minuscule cost"

 What is Drop-shipping?

I am now "getting to grips, with drop-shipping" and have recently started a second study (based on information you can see here) - it is written by Damien Defranco - "THE - WORLD expert on this subject". (Note: Damien gave his permission for me to publish here)

  Dropshipping / I am now recommending this.

Pinterest ??? (many things to many people - now qualified as "THE" fastest" growing business on our planet.

All research here was started in 2018 "still underway daily"

I first published this page (after building visitors + followers) I know now that the "world" is very "P-interested" - more than just here on our tiny island of UK (where "by the way" we are VERY VERY SLOW in take-up).

 With more than "25 million" daily users and a growth rate of more than 40% per year, the indication (a fact even) is that Pinterest is fulfilling a demand rather well! It is NOT another Facebook which remains dominant in terms of group social interaction. Pinterest is an image, # "AND" word / "searchable" matching application with astounding/addictive share-ability AND top class functionality. + it is fun + easy to use! (those are the main reasons for P's astonishing results)
Our decisions are influenced by how things look - we all know that visual images are important regarding a high percentage of everyone's desires, interests and purchases.
In USA today more than 70% of females between 26 and 55 now use Pinterest "daily" for both enjoyment and decision making / purchasing. The male equivalent has now reached over 30 % !!. Here in the UK we "WILL" catch up or catch on - even us men. I have now discovered why we are so far behind these International trends (It is changing rapidly now)!

This relatively new ability to record images and make comparisons of product availability and cost is changing the way shopping works. Pinterest has made image/idea sharing "easy and enjoyable" + product matching and price comparison - "SIMPLE" - "drag frame on image + click" or with lens (pinterest image matching) "point your phone and click" (you are now looking at - choice, with links directly to a choice of suppliers info). 

Pinterest hs become "THE" leading platform for image recognition, image comparison AND image sharing. (the Google of images with links built in). Millions of pins lead directly to more info, advisors and, websites where you can review ideas, find and buy stuff quicker on-line.

 What are embedded P boards?

Here directly below is another working example of a pin board (it's embedded in this page and operates on a "live" basis) - I started with 18 boards in total as part of my research - increased this to 80+ including shared boards and sub-boards. All these boards are all connected "live", the one right here below has (20,000 + photos of cats!) - it could easily be photos of your products) - "I did say  TWENTY thousand + cat photos" - as you are reading this - right now - you can try by scrolling it - or read more and come back. I recommend you read more of this first - it's only a 5 minute read in total (you are welcome to take longer!) ! Note: the integrated boards on this page are auto-truncated for reasons of page load speed "click the invite to go to the full board".

There are "vast" untapped applications of this technology in development, this is benefitial for most if not all businesses, + easy for all users. The FREE Pinterest, "app" lends itself to VERY powerful integration in websites. e.g. Images from sites can be saved and shared by anyone visiting (THIS IS FREE MARKETING). Importantly (here is the benefit), these images can and DO - carry the inbuilt digital information links, which have "REAL VALUE". This means users can and do find more quickly the best source of the product, idea, service or experience being offered. This function (UNIQUE to P) makes Pinterest a "search engine" of amazing ability.

 It's now simple for most businesses
