Do you think being active on pinetrest and yahoo answers can help SEO and lead people to finding your site online ?


I'm thinking this may be something that can be worth spending time on along with starting a google plus account as well and maybe leaving a few comments here and there regularly in hopes it can pick up.

Thanks !

    Yahoo Answer and pinterest links are nofollow, but they help to build social signal and site authority.
    All social links G+, FB, twitter are also helpful in the same way.

      Yes, you are right. However, to include the nofollow also so it looks natural at Google. Don't only focus on the dollow. Because of the its algorithm.

    yes, google prefffer both do-follow as well as no-follow link as well. Pinterest can help you to get more traffic if your site fully seo optimized. However, Other Social signal like google +, facebook, twitter should be maintain. Regularly share your site with informative content in social media.

    No matter they are NoFollow they could be really helpful... Especially Facebook, Twitter and Yahoo Answers. I can't say that Pinterest is good because the backlinks are NOT using any anchor text... You get a backlink using a picture... But they are effective to get some more TARGETTED visitors!

    Yes, yahoo and pinterest have a higher trust than the majority of .gov and .edu websites. Not to mention they can bring you huge amounts of traffic. Get pinning! Forget about do-follow and no-follow, you should be backlinking for traffic, not for backlinks. I have an ebook i am releasing soon, PM me if you want any other advice.

  • Although it is not really directly stated that social media sites like Pinterest and Yahoo Answers can help in SEO and bring in traffic, being active in these sites still helps. Social Media sites are considered to provide a site authority and reputation online. So in a way, yes they can help. You need to balance your SEO with Social media sites in order to really guarantee that you are generating traffic from all avenues possible.

    Both are useful for increasing traffic.You can use Pinterest to build awareness of your brand and business. You can also use it to sell products or services or to build a strong community. Pinterest is also an SEO friendly site.Pinterest links are “dofollow” and are counted by search engines as a valuable piece of input when they decide how to rank your pages

    Yahoo answers doesn't help you with website ranking, it can help you bring traffic but with pinterest you can defenitely get good links that may help improve in the rankings.
