You may be here because you keep wondering the same question every time you post something interesting on Pinterest and receive no likes, repins etc:
“Is Pinterest down right now?” Or, “How come no photos are being repinned on Pinterest right now?”
Sound familiar? Yea, we’ve been there, too.
And you may be thinking that something is wrong with the site. Well, you may be right. Pinterest is still in the young and developmental stages of growth so, quite possibly, there could be a bug screwing things up due to a massive influx of pinning happening at that time. It’s not unrealistic. It happens all the time with other “real time” social sites.
Think, Twitter “fail whale.”
But it could also just be that you have tried, to phrase it metaphorically, show off your Lamborghini in rush hour traffic. Meaning, everyone is too busy doing their own thing in a sea of Pinterest traffic to properly care about whatever seemingly interesting tidbit you’ve posted.
No need to stress, though, let’s get back to getting your photos the attention they deserve!
Pinerly.com, the first Pinterest analytics site up and running, has put together an awesome infographic for those of us feeling frustrated and lost in the shuffle of pinning.
Give it a try, it worked for us!
