Some of you may have already jumped on the Pinterest band wagon and some of you may still be wondering what exactly it can do to help increase traffic to your communities.
The number one reason to use Pinterest is for the referral traffic – that is the percentage of Pinterest visitors who click on links to go to other sites, is far higher on Pinterest than other social media sites, according to Mashable.com.
As of March 2012 Pinterest was ranked as the #3 social media site, with 104 million visitors. Here’s the ranking:

- Twitter: 182 million
- Pinterest: 104 million
- LinkedIn: 86 million
- Tagged: 72 million
- Google+: 61 million
