I'd imagine Pinterest will be indexed by Google images so might be a good way to get things out there.

Not really done a lot with it myself although I think it's potentially quite good for good quality large images. Would imagine it could get better if Google bought it and integrated it into their search system however, then it could bring real traffic.

Have seen a lot of SEO type newsletters saying it'll be the next big thing, but am not totally convinced as how many times do people search for a product via picture? OK, on Google that might be more the case, but never seen any actual real world results from people saying my sales shot up by X %.

Would love to know how they get around the copyright problems.

my sales are not up using pinterest but do get a lot of hits from there and my alexa ranking is 9m since i only went online with the toy site in mid-november last year. Usually i find it takes me months or almost a few years to get anywhere near that ranking. Another site i started and not on pinterest the ranking on it is not ranked on alexa but will in a few weeks put on pinterest to see what happens. I found when i had some of the toys on another site they were never on the google images but since this new site and pinterest they are and on it says image from pinterest rather than the site. don't mind so much as the pinterest has a link to my web page.

Sales still waiting but it is just after christmas and large toy season is over.

I am on Pinterest - http://pinterest.com/paulhjohnson/

Despite what I'm doing being quite visual (I'm thinking of luxury travel here), I wouldn't say it's a significant player for us.

have followed you mine is http://pinterest.com/lewoodentoy

have put their button on the site and my alexa has now gone down to 6m which is interesting to see know it is not a lot down but to me am just grateful it is changing faster than any of my other sites. Not sure if entirely because of pinterest but will see when i put up the other one and watch how it goes

have you had any interest from pinterest at all or even someone saying they saw you first there before booking travel etc at all?

Think Pinterest is more a showcase in a funny kind of way

I wouldn't pay any attention to Alexa rankings to be honest...

And no, I can't think of a time anyone has ever booked something via any of our sites, having said they found us on Pinterest. That doesn't mean to say I don't think it has some value though.
