Yes, we started use Pinterest a while back. We are in the infant stages of its use, but it has given us some small returns. If you have not yet begun using Pinterest, I would suggest reading a couple of articles about it by our own Bill Gassett:

What Every Real Estate Agent Needs to Know About Pinterest

and

Using Pinterest for Real Estate Social Media Exposure

Both have some very good info and I highly recommend them! Also, in addition to Bill's Pinterest boards, I would suggest taking a look a Raj Qsar's boards as well. He's got it down pat, and I've tried to incorporate some of his ideas into our own boards. Check them out here:

Pinterest is an awesome app and website! HOWEVER, the down side is that you'll think your spending 15 minutes a day when it ends up being almost an hour of just browsing through ideas and pictures. Be careful with this because pinterest often will not help generate business for example, its not a money making activity. Just like Facebook is just another method to draw in viewers and get attention. How to generate leads and sales from that is another story...

SEO is not a singular "thing" or task. It represents a category of tactics that can be employed to improve the organic search ranking result of a website. Load speed, blogging, video marketing, image tagging, SSL, mobile responsiveness, business directory listings, quality backlinks, social media, search friendly urls and more are all examples of things one can do as part of an overall SEO plan.

Rather than post in Pinterest and "hope" for results, be sure to use links to your website and also use hashtags that identify what you do in your Pin's description.  These results show up in a Google search ... so if you spend your time on Pinterest wisely, it can definitely help your ranking on Google.

Yes! I use Pinterest because it's crazy popular with women and I get traffic on my boards. It's easy to set up and use. Give it a try. It's free and another great way to drive traffic to your posts/website

I have to say that Raj gets interesting pins being in Orange County. My area is not so interesting!

I just read Tammy's post now! I think that you have to make it interesting & posting of listings only will be the kiss of death. Pinterest is so visual you have to be sure you pics are intriguing, funny, awesome.

I've just started recently & I'm indexed well by G, I can't say that I've got biz from it yet.    Lyn Sims on Pinterest

I really think that each media does not work for each marketplace and its demographic and psychographics.  It bears investigating, and Tammy Lankford is  the perfect example.  It works for her.  So try it, what is there to loose.  A
