I've noticed I've been getting some traffic from a site called Pinterest.com for the last couple of weeks on my health blog.
What happens is I get an influx of 20 or so visitors in an hour and then it dies down to a very slow trickle and then a few days later there will be another 20-30 visitors in an hour.
I've had over 200 visitors in the past two weeks from this traffic source so I checked it out.
From the About page, it says it enables you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web.
From what I can tell, just one person has "Pinned" some of my blog posts to their pinboard, but I don't understand how that is generating so much traffic. They only have 49 followers.
Has anyone used Pinterest as a way to drive traffic? Or are you indirectly generating traffic from it like me?
