Pinteresting Strategies Review: Kickstart Your Pinterest Traffic with This eBook

The Secret to Getting Over 100,000 Page ViewsToday, I have an interesting review about the eBook which has exploded my traffic. As you know, I started my blog a year ago, and I feel so grateful that in this one year I have begun earning a full-time income from my blog.

Is it realistically possible to do that in a year?

Yes, it is.

It is mostly because of the traffic I get. And Pinterest is the biggest reason.

From the start of my blogging journey, I did not invest in anything related to Pinterest other than Pinteresting Strategies. Carly was offering this eBook as a freebie with another learning resource.

Carly really studies Pinterest, at least that’s what I think. She got 200,000 page views to her 7-month-old blog, and most of that traffic was from Pinterest. Her traffic stats in June were, even more, mind blowing over 500,000 page views and her blog is just over a year old!! WOW!!

After applying the tips in the eBook, my traffic literally exploded. Now, I get over 100,000 page views from Pinterest alone every month.

Why am I doing this review?

Actually this review is long time coming for the incredible results I got from it. Many of my readers who have started blogging are having a hard time getting page views and through this review, if I can help them, I would be really happy. (more…)

How I Went from 0 to 100,000 Page Views in 9 Months of Blogging

How I Went From 0 To 100,000 Pageviews In 9 Months Of BloggingIt has been nine months since I took the leap into blogging. I started my blog because I struggled to find a legitimate work-at-home job and many are seeking to work from home and struggling to find legitimate ways to make money.

I never expected to reach this point in such a short period. I am happy and grateful that I am making a significant income from my blog in just nine months.

But this was entirely possible because from day one I focused on the traffic. I knew that getting traffic would be a big challenge. Apart from giving helpful content to my readers, I focused really hard on driving traffic to my blog.

And here we are after nine months; I am over 100k page views per month. Though the traffic goes up and down, I know what helped me to reach to this point and I can work more on traffic driving strategies.

 

So what is getting me this traffic?

 

Pinterest
