    The most important thing to understand about Pinterest is that most of its visitors are women. If you aren't selling something that appeals to that demographic, you might be wasting your time.

    That's not to say you can't get traffic to, say, a power tool product page. You just have to get creative. Even so, however, the traffic quality might not be that great.

    On the whole, you get what you pay for.

      I agree with you, too.
      I have an aged Pinterest account but it doesn't give me a good traffic at all. I would rather try other social media sites than sticking to Pinterest.

        Pinterest is a good way to promote your business but it definitely isn't for everyone. Fashion, designer products and infographics are probably the ones that get most out of it.

    Well i will say that now a days weight loss and fitness niche is difficult on pinterest

    Because spammers have spammed a lot regarding weightless and fitness

    So their conversion is quite low these days

    Anyhow you need to find some group boards in your niche where you can pin to get some quick exposure

    You can use this term to search on Google to find group boards in your niche
    Just replace KEYWORD with any of yours

    site:pinterest.com "1000..100000 followers" KEYWORD -intitle:followers "contributor"


    Also you need to regularly to your boards

    Pin like 20+ pins at a time then wait 3-4 days then again pin 20+ pins,

    Do this for couple of weeks and you will start seeing some good surge of traffic

    create more interesting boards and pins so that people will notice your pins like it or re-pin it on there boards. Thus your pins will get more exposure and more visits which could lead you more traffic.

    Tan, Pin relevant stuff. Comment on relevant stuff. Follow relevant boards. Relevance rocks on Pinterest, so stay on topic to avoid straying off course....or else you will be flooded by pictures of cute kittens lol!

    If you want female traffic to the website or want to promote the female product like clothes, cosmetics etc than it give you better result. I don’t need to tell you that facebook, Google plus and twitter are better than the pinterest.

    Increase your activity in relevant boards, relevant people. Share stuff related to your work.
    Catchy images can play a vital role.
