Thanks for sharing your guide to Pinterest analytics. It looks a lot like Google version of the same tool. I don’t use Pinterest as much as I should, but I will now after reading a few guides here on your site. Can I ask you, how many clicks per month you get to your site from Pinterest?
Right now about 100 but it continually rises! I get about 20,000 monthly viewers. Also my site sweetgiftlists.com is a very specific niche and is not in the most popular categories on Pinterest. The account is also only 5 months old so it is rocking and rolling considering the above.
