How a Blogger Recovered Her Traffic From a Google Update with Pinterest 073

Have you heard stories of people loosing all of the traffic to their website because of a Google update? I have and have always assumed that it only happened to websites doing shady or black-hat stuff. I’ve come to learn that isn’t always the case.

How a Blogger Recovered Her Traffic From a Google Update with Pinterest 073

In this episode of the Oh So Pinteresting podcast

I talk with personal finance blogger Jackie Beck of The Debt Myth about how she lost all of the traffic to her blog from Google overnight and how she was able to recover that traffic by using Pinterest.

We also talk about:

  • How she uses group boards to her advantage.

 

  • How she uses Pinterest to promote her personal finance blog.

 

  • How she uses Pinterest to promote sales of her mobile app, Pay Off Debt

 

This image that has continued to bring her traffic from Pinterest for over a year! Talk about a great ROI and continues to promote sales of Jackie’s Pay Off Debt mobile app.

    So I went to the notifications on my personal Pinterest and it does not have the group setting below the Invites you to a group board. It is blank. Am I missing a step somewhere or do I need a business Pinterest account?
    Thanks

      Hi Tammy,

      You shouldn’t need a business account for group board invitations. I’ve noticed on some of my accounts that it has been acting weird. Try a different browser and see if that helps. Also, when Pinterest makes updates sometimes certain account features act quirky. Hopefully it doesn’t last long.

      Thanks for stopping by 🙂
