Pinterest is a new social platform compared to Facebook and Twitter and completely different from every other network. So if bloggers are finding out new ways to drive traffic to their blogs and are avoiding this great platform with high potential, then you are going to regret it afterwards.

Drive Traffic with Pinterest

According to a study, Pinterest is referring more traffic to sites and blogs as compared to the traffic referred by Google Plus, Reddit, YouTube and LinkedIn combined. If we compare Pinterest and Twitter, taking the number of users, then Pinterest refers more traffic than Twitter – Pinterest has around 10 million users while Twitter boasts of 200 million users.

Why do you need to have a Pinterest account ?

As I said earlier, Pinterest has got huge potential. In this year, it has created an impact in the social media, compelling biggies like Facebook and Twitter to rethink over their strategies. So many bloggers and business owners got in the shelter of Pinterest to leverage the benefits.

Why people are attracted to use Pinterest ?

This is a simple question with a very simple answer. Here is a very famous quote that explains all – “Images speak louder than words”.

I think the owners of Pinterest might have taken inspiration from this quote and created a highly popular social networking site. The site uses images, known as “Pins”. As you share links, status, images on Facebook; the same way you can share the images you like with Pinterest. If we look in a more detailed perspective, then it actually allows users to save and share the web-pages from around the Internet in forms of images.

As a result, more and more users are using Pinterest as it uses images, that are visually appealing rather that status updates.

Simple Tips to Drive Traffic with Pinterest :-

#1.  Use Pinterest as a User not a blogger :

The first step would be to login to Pinterest not as a blogger but as a user to find useful images. Try to keep a blog post of yours in mind. Now try to search different pins and boards with a proper keyword that bests suits your blog post.

Analyze different images properly, study the description of the images and try to draft a compelling description for your own images. This will help you rank high in search terms for the relevant keyword on Pinterest.

#2. Get into your blogging shoes :

Now it’s time to be back as a blogger. Now that you know how you can rank high, it’s time to pin proper images. Get to your blog post and choose the image that best describe your post. (Don’t forget to add the “Pin It” button in your bookmarks bar). Use a relevant board or make a seperate one for the image and provide a proper description that contains your keyword.

#3. Be Social, Followers does matter :

This is the most important thing if you want to reap benefits from any social network, including Pinterest. Don’t just stick to pinning images from your blog. Search around Pinterest, if you like some images then don’t think twice to re-pin the image. Similarly, if you like any web-page or any blog post, then try to be friendly by pinning the post onto Pinterest. This way you will see a rise in your followers count and who knows if you too get a re-pin from others.

#4. Add a Pin-It button to your Blog post : 

Adding a Pin button will be quite beneficial as users who like your blog will be able to share your post easily. There are many social sharing plugins available that has “Pin” buttons integrated, but if you want to add it at some other place, you can find the code from Pinterest. Just login, and go to the “Goodies” section and you will find the code.

#5. Be Generous – Return the Favor :

If any pinner is pinning your blog images, then be generous enough to return the favor by following his pins or by re-pinning his images. He will surely love your gesture and will share your images more often.

#6. Be Different :

As we all know, Pinterest is a network completely different from its counterparts, so you have to find your own ways to get traffic from Pinterest. No one will ever reveal his strategies, you have to discover the strategy that suits you the best and work on it. Be different, because the platform we are talking about is different.

 I don’t get thousands of visitors from Pinterest, but from the last few days I started working on Pinterest and it is climbing up on my top referrers list. So I thought of writing a post about Pinterest. If you think I have missed out on any point that might be useful or have presented anything in a wrong manner, please feel free to drop a comment. I would love your gesture.

Why Facebook should be afraid of Google+ ??

Facebook should be afraid of Google+

         Social Media is the hottest topic today in the Internet world. Everyone spends most of his time on various social networks. The most famous ones include the status updates, plus ones and tweets. I hope you would get it. The social world recently saw a great social platform rising and becoming popular on a much faster rate. I am talking about Pinterest. This network is completely different to what we all are used to. Simply saying it is an image-based social networking site. But this all we will cover in some other post. Our today’s topic is why Facebook should be afraid of Google+.

Read : Which one is better – Google+ or Facebook ??

The biggest reason :-

         The biggest reason of why Facebook should be afraid of Google+ is that Facebook is going to compete with a Google service and we all know what Google is. Google is something that no one is unfamiliar with. Its the synonym to Internet. Whichever field Google has entered in, it has completely taken charge over it. If you would see the services offered by this search giant, then you will be shocked. Other reason is that people loves Google and they should because with you will get the online security as a freebie.

Take a look at the services offered by Google. Click here

Large No. of Google Users :-

          Most of the people who are familiar with the Internet are bound to be familiar with Google. And so all of us have our very own Google account. According to my knowledge, more than a billion people have a Google account. Additionally you can use any of the services offered by Google by just one single id. So just think, if everyone out there who have a Google account just signs in to Google+ then it will easily surpass Facebook within no time.

The Updated Design of Google+ :-

           Just a few days back Google+ rolled out with its new design. This new layout is clean and and anyone can easily navigate through it. Some amazing new features like the size of the image has been increased a lot, a different hangouts page, a cute and awesome navigation ribbon and much more. I love this new design than what it used to be before. To know more about the updated layout click the link below.

Read : Google+ gets a new look with some new features

One more reason :-

          Now people have started getting bored of the same new features of Facebook. It is providing nothing new. Even the Timeline feature has nothing appealing. But you can expect some image modification in Facebook in the near future after it acquired Instagram. But it would also be limited to only images. The social network addicts like me have already started their search for some new platforms. For now, Pinterest looks the most promising and yes Google+ is also growing in terms of popularity.

Final words :-

         If Facebook wants to stay in the race or want to maintain the top position in the social world then it has to bring in some amazing new features so that it can bind the people again. But defeating Facebook is not a child’s play as it is the biggest today. But if Facebook doesn’t do something and provide something new to its users then the doomsday for Facebook is near.

The things about Facebook that I love and things that I hate !!!

Things I love and hate about Facebook

We all know that Facebook is the leading social networking site today with more than 750 million users worldwide. Many people start their day with a status update which is sufficient to show how much people are addicted to Facebook. It is the best place today to socialize with people around the world and stay connected with your friends. But there are something that Facebook excels in and something where it fails. Today we are gonna discuss some points that I love and some points that I hate about Facebook.

First of all let’s see why is Facebook so much popular ?? The reason about the popularity of it among the youths as well as old people around the globe.

The reason of its Success :-

The biggest reason why Facebook is so popular is it’s perfect timing. I mean to say that Facebook came when no other social network was offering any such services. Mark Zuckerberg hit the fortune by launching it a time when people were bored of other social networks and Facebook offered them much different services to explore. So more and more people created their account with it and thus made it so much popular.

The things that I love about Facebook :-

Its Design :-

The creators of Facebook have indeed done a great amount of hard-work to create the design of Facebook and give it a perfect look. Even the new users will love its simple user interface and would never get confused.

Wide Variety of Pages and Groups :-

This is the best thing about Facebook that fell in love with. You can find a wide range of pages and groups of different categories on Facebook. You will never get bored of browsing such pages.

Strong Connection :-

I am able to easily connect with my friends on Facebook. I can see what they are doing or what they are up to. Above this all, Facebook helps me to remember my friends’ birthday and saves me from their torture that they give me if I forget it.

The things that I hate about Facebook :-

Large number of users :-

This is the biggest nuisance on Facebook. Their are so many users of Facebook that it makes almost impossible for you to find anyone’s profile. Also the amount of fake accounts is way more that the genuine ones. I think that Facebook has managed to get so many users just because of the fake accounts that people create.

Timeline for pages :-

After the implementation of Timeline feature for personal profile, Facebook introduced it for the pages as well. In this process, all the pages lost their landing pages. This landing pages where the main attraction of such pages which are now completely gone. But you can create a cover photo instead but it can’t be compared with the landing pages.


Unlimited tagging :-

You are tagged with many photos or videos or links which are not at all of any use. This things are just useless. It annoys me very much when any of my friend tags me to some useless photo.

The ‘Dislike’ button :-

This is the feature for which I am longing to have. People in my friend list just upload some things that are just bullshit. What they think when they update some stupid status which has got no meaning. Now Facebook has got to introduce a ‘Dislike’ button.

Final words :-

My list of likes and dislikes not just ends here. It’s just that I cannot present it in one single post or you will get annoyed with the article. This points I wrote about are my personal view. If you feel that you like some point that I don’t then it’s just a matter of perception. If you think I am missing out on some point then please let me and my other readers know it by commenting below.

Again I want to say that each and everything that I have written is my personal perception. It may be that you will feel differently about it as it is your personal view. So if you are offended by any point then please don’t take it seriously. No hard feelings.

Why you should use Twitter ??

Why you should use Twitter

The people today have resorted to virtual reality, fully committing to themselves to computers and smartphones. The world is passing through a technology revolution. Humans like to spend time on the internet socializing with the people from around the world rather than stepping out of their houses and knowing their neighbours. Social networking sites are taking on the social world by storm. Facebook, Twitter and Google plus are some of the social networks that have become successful in gaining much popularity with the masses in a short time period.

Most of us have accounts on Facebook and even Google+ and we use it quite often. But we But not many of us have ever tweeted. Forget about tweeting, some of you must not have ever created a Twitter account. Why not ?? If you love using and socializing on Facebook and Google+, then you will probably love Twitter as well.

The 140-character limitation :-

As per my opinion, Twitter is the most challenging platform to show-off. The limit of tweeting only 140 characters is the hardest part. This might be the biggest reason that might have kept you away from Twitter. It is hard but not impossible. Take it as a challenge. Our generation loves challenges. So why not take this quality of ours to this social platform. Transform the 140-character limit to your biggest strength.

You can build strong connections :-

Twitter is a very wide network with millions of users. Those who have Twitter accounts come to this platform to make their online connection strong. You can find many companies or people’s who are worth following. You can learn a lot from these successful personalities. This is one thing Facebook doesn’t have. Half of the accounts on Facebook are fake. While there is different scenario on Twitter.

The best place to promote :-

If you are the owner of some website or want to promote your product with a large number of people then Twitter is the best place for promotion. Facebook Ads is the better way for promotion but you have to pay for it. If you are not willing to pay then you should start tweeting. Build a list of followers and convince them that the thing you are promoting is worth a try.They will probably get somewhat convinced.

Find People you love :-

If you want to keep an eye on your favorite celeb – be a sportsperson, an actor, a media personality or a business tycoon, then you can find them on Twitter very easily. If you search them on Facebook, then you will come across thousands of profile and you will get totally confused that which one is the genuine one.

Final Words :-

After reading the above article, if you are going to create a Twitter account then it will be my achievement. Don’t think that I was promoting Twitter. It was just a personal feeling. If we give so much importance to Facebook then why not use Twitter that is as advanced as Facebook.

If you have any objection regarding the above article then feel free to comment as it would motivate us to solve your problems and not commit any such mistakes in the future. Please help us improve by giving your precious feedback. Thank you.

            This is an era of Internet. There won’t be anyone on the Earth who may not know about Internet.

Managing all this is really tiring. Now no more tiring as we can manage all our profiles from one website itself.

Which one is better – Google Plus or Facebook ??

Which one is better - Google Plus or Facebook

Social Networking is a craze today, not only among our generation but also among people of every age group. People prefer to remain active on social networking sites rather than going out and meet someone. Facebook today is the undisputed ruler of social networking sites. But there has emerged a threat named Google Plus.

              Google Plus though being new is gaining much great response in the social world. People trust it more because it’s a product rolled out by Google which is the most trusted name on Internet. A look into the site will give you an overall view of the features of Google +. Going by the description and the look of the features, it seems that this time Google will be successful with their endeavor in the social media segment. The undefeated king of search engines is taking strong steps to become the king of social networking sites.
              On the other hand, Facebook has sensed the danger in Google+ and is trying to roll out newer and newer features so that it’s users don’t migrate to Google+. The new look of Facebook is the proof of its insecurity. It launched the Timeline feature for personal accounts which got mixed reviews and now it has rolled out the Timeline Feature for the pages as well.
              Personally saying, I found Google+ far more better and advanced than Facebook. The features of Google+ are amazing, the photo effects are visually very clear and of course the circles. All and all I would say that Google+ is better than Facebook and will surely outnumber Facebook users.
              I would like to know what you feel – whether Facebook is better or Google+ ?? Let us know your views regarding the same. The people’s views only decide the popularity of the social networks.
