Pinterest Becomes 3rd Largest Social Network in the U.S.

Hello everyone, my name is Jarrett and I am a new intern at SEO, Inc. in Carlsbad, CA. Today, I will be sharing with you some new and interesting statistics about Pinterest.

Enjoy!

Pinterest, the upstart that focuses on letting users “pin” things that interest them, has been growing by leaps and bounds in traffic and new users.  This has allowed Pinterest to snatch the 3rd spot for the largest social network in the United States, boasting 104 million visitors in the month of March alone.

So what is the future like for Pinterest? A new report from the Experian shows Pinterest received 21.5 million visits during the week ending January 28, a nearly 30-fold increase over a comparable week in July. If you think that means Pinterest is going no other way than up, then you would be right. Analysis of Pinterest’s traffic is fueling more active participation by companies whose products are being shared on Pinterest boards.

Interesting statistics from PRDaily.com:

If you are indecisive about creating a Pinterest profile, we say go for it. It’s filling a niche not covered by any major existing social platforms, and serves as a marketing tool for businesses selling easily photographed products and services. Pinterest has a highly engaged audience of “pinners” which means there is plenty of opportunity to get your brand out there and catch the eye of millions.
