Tailwind Pinners Beware - See These Outrageous Results From Using Them

 

Tailwind pinners, you might want to rethink your pinning strategies over there! Especially if you are pinning Etsy or other actual products over there using the regular pins feature.

(Update at the end)

What Is Happening To Your Tailwind Pins?

Hashtags For Pinterest Specifically

Here look for yourself:

Looks pretty good right?

But then I got to thinking ...

What does it all mean?

And more importantly, how can I get it to translate to sales?

First let's see what each of the Pinterest analytics labels means:

  • Impressions - The number of times your pins were seen.
