Pinterest Traffic Doubles in Three Months
Pinterest has doubled its number of daily unique visitors in just three months, from 2 million in January up to 4 million in March, according to an infographic released by social media marketer Tamba. Launched just over two years ago, the photo-sharing site has a demographic largely based between ages 25-54.
While the service is still dominated by women, the percentage of men using the site has grown from 20% in January to 28% in March.
- Pinterest had 2.3 billion pageviews in March 2012
- over 20% of Facebook users are on Pinterest daily
- the average user spends 14.2 minutes on Pinterest per visit
- Pinterest users have above average incomes
- ‘fashion designers & collections’ is the top audience interest on the site
How is all this pinning affecting purchases? Buyers referred from Pinterest are 10% more likely to buy something and spend 10% more (on average) than visitors who arrive from other social networks.
The percentage of all social media driven revenue that comes from Pinterest has also grown rapidly, from 1% in Q2 of 2011 up to 17% in Q1 of 2012. Over this same period, the percentage of social media revenue coming from Facebook has dropped from 89% to 82%, and from 10% to 1% for Twitter.
Fun Pinterest fact of the day: the site’s “Midwestern roots are still apparent” with both “Utah” and “Iowa” showing up among the list of top ten audience interests on the site.
