  7. Hi Swadhin,

    That was an informative post indeed :)

    My goodness! You surely are making the right connections where Pinterest is concerned! Honestly speaking, except for the official blog and those who write about it from the ones I know of are just Jeff and Rebekah – I hardly know any other from this list. So, you have given me lots to take back home and work over the weekend!

    Yes, Pinterest is an awesome platform and I would highly recommend it for all bloggers and others. I have some pins that have been pinned over 1500 times!! And I get daily traffic from Pinterest, sometimes it’s the one that brings in the maximum number of people over, so I know it works – very well for me.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend :)

    • Hello Harleena Madam, Thank you I am content that I got a thumbs Up from you.

      yes As far as Pinterest is concerned I am really fascinated towards it,mainly because it is result oriented. I found these blogs for my research for this post. Some like Rebekah’s and Jeff’s were known to me. I knew Ohsopinteresting early when I started using the social site.
      I would also like you to visit Buffer blog Kevan there too writes epic posts that are data driven just like yours :)

      God, getting 1500 repins is fantastic. See that is what inspires me to dive into Pinterest. Hope I get to learn more on it from you and the blogs I mentioned. Thank you for the motivation on using it.

  8. Nicely written post. But one thing i want to be clarified is- some of these sites have very good content and still dont have very good ranking(though good but not very good). So would you tell me why this happens?

    • Hello Swaviman, Glad you liked this post. I didn’t get your question regarding site rankings :( Are you talking of the sites I mentioned here. Then please check them because all of these are authority sites in their respective fields. If you use SEOQuake addon go to the homepage and non of the sites will register a PR less than 3. Do let me know if your question was something else.

      • i meant alexa ranking.
