Here is an article I wrote last month showing my personal results.

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:
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...

I have not learned the Pintrest thing enough yet to achieve such a goal.
I am not their yet. My wife plays around with it, but I have not done anything with it. Not enough time.
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

No, I don't....but I love it.
I get a lot of great ideas for home design and DIY projects.
Not yet. But I'm looking forward to learn how to do it. Pinterest has become a large and popular network, it is necessary to learn how to use it for my business.
I haven't quite got the edge on this. I do go on to pinterest and have a ball though...
I don't currently but it is in my business plan for the year and I am looking for geat ideas.
I used to.
Thank you, Tammy Lankford ! On my Pinterest site, you are a featured realtor, too!
I'm excited to start posting my blogs to Pinterest!
I've been on Pinterest for a wile, but after reading Tammy Lankford's post on Pinterest, I'll do more!
Barely but I will be using it more in 2015 that's for sure Mason Nettles .
I have only done pictures but it is helping me so far. I have to start posting blogs too
No I do not, not at this time. I am thinking about it though
Great tips. I haven't used it effectively though, so I will read up on the links provided.
I am interested in using pinterest in my business, but I have a way to go.
I haven't been using Pinterest at all. There doesn't seem to be enough demand for pictures of real estate.
Thanks for all the good suggestions. I was just talking about pinterest with a collegue of mine. I might have to start using it. Have a productive day!
How do all these Rainers find the time to manage and produce all the content on this and other social media sites in addition to their own websites and still consistently produce cash flow?
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
Yes and Yes.
really never saw any value to Pinterest....others have better impact than Pinterest for SEO
Thank you Pat & Wayne Harriman for the link to Bill's article. I am not using pinterest, but agree it is an up and coming platform for us.
Do some research before you spend the time
I think Pinterest is a great tool to add to your marketing but I have not received any business as of yet.
Yes. Done correctly, you can get some good results from it. You just need to learn how to target people interested in your area.
Nope...don't use it and don't have time to learn it.
Mason Nettles It's on my card for this year.
I have not used Pinterest to drive traffic to my site, but I continue to hear more and more people using Pinterest for a variety of different things. I am hoping to test the waters this year and see what it's all about.
I have not used Pinterest yet.
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
I have been posting to Pinterest and I can only hope it brings some traffic.
