Pinterest Now Driving More Referral Traffic Than Pinterest, Shareaholic Confirms





pinterest traffic

It seems a day doesn’t go by without some news on the exponentially exploding social inspiration startup Pinterest, and the new and hot site has achieved another milestone- in February, Pinterest drove more referral traffic than established microblogging platform Twitter.

More impressive still are facts pointed out by PCMag.com- not only is Pinterest’s user base overwhelmingly female and not coastal early adopters (most Pinners are 18-34 year olds in middle America), but the site is still invite only. (In fact, it seems that I personally see at least one invite request on Facebook daily.) We learned earlier this month that Pinterest was rapidly outpacing sites of similar function on the web, and leaving Google+ in the dust when it comes to traffic and growth.

PCMag.com notes:

Shareaholic culls its data from more than 200,000 publishers that see around 270 million unique visitors every month. The analytics company also reported that purported ghost town Google+ is generating about as much referral traffic as Yahoo Answers.

In comparison, MySpace was beating out Google+ for time spent on site. Do you think Pinterest’s strongest growth lies ahead when it comes out of invite-only status?
