Pinterest is a great way to generate trafficl I red that some sites derive more traffic from Pinterest than any other sources. It's important to pin pictures that are interesting and fascinating; it's about the visual aspect.


I hope Pinterest will not just be a fad but something that will be useful even in the long term.

Pinterest has definitely been popular for wedding ideas from what I've seen (themes, venues, hair styles, you name it). A few girlfriends of mine are actively using it for their wedding, but one of them just started using an additional site that saves all of her finds and brings her back to that original link. I'm in her bridal party this May and she used clipix to compare prices for our dresses. She seems to be planning more with clipix while using pinterest for ideas.

Great reviews of Pinterest. I looked at it and found very interesting photos. It looks like if I sign up an account, I'll enjoy being there.
