Social Multiplier 2 / Re: My SM2 study
« Last post by kevin.r.butters6298 on Today at 08:01:35 PM »
Thanks Kevin for your sharing. I have added 4K+ followers for one account at about 1K every month for the past 4 months, and my traffic has never gone up after the 2nd month. My follow rates are around 40% or more and I don't even follow more than 250. Yet, traffic from Pinterest has been a straight line ever since.

It looks like Pinterest is limiting accounts and therefore, compelling people to make new accounts.  >:(

I was just thinking with a big old account, the traffic that it is supposed to get would be equal to many small accounts, saving a lot of unnecessary "resources".

My own thoughts on that is that in my case the increase in my follower numbers are not as dynamic as they should be because 95% of the pinning/follow process is automated by SM2 and I have lost a lot of the "focus" of my boards....I don't blame SM2 for this, it is more likely down to the quality of the Pinterest search functionality which delivers poorly targeted pins which let's face it will lose you followers particularly if you are pinning 100+ pins daily.

I know from reading your comments on other threads that you spend quite a lot of time "housekeeping" your boards to keep them on message....which should in theory provide you considerably more dynamic results than I am achieving as I never do that, I do look through my various account boards now & again and am pretty horrified at some of the stuff that gets pinned, but the task of tidying them all up is more daunting than I care to contemplate.

My focus for the next 6 month period will be to grow my P accounts to a max of 100....laser target some new CB niches that I can easily bolt onto my existing network and try and push through more volume into my old info based sites....all within the existing hosting resources I already have.

*Update*

I rolled back to an earlier version of SM2, specifically ver_2.141, and I don't get the error anymore.

It works with older versions of SM2, but with the newer version and the update, the pin jobs for other instances of SM2 are not working anymore.

Maybe that tidbit of feedback may be helpful in solving this.

Hey Kevin,

How did you get your main Pinterest account built to this level? That's the main thing I am curious about. Because my Pinterest account traffic seems to have hit a ceiling, and this is unnatural. - as mentioned in my post, my main P account is 4 years old, I inherited it as part of a deal 3 years ago when i bought an authority website, it had around 3k followers when I got it, I did very little with it other than pin email suggestions from Pinterest and add new boards on subjects that interested me....at the time I bought SM2 last October the account had around 11k followers, I immediately added it to SM2 and added new targeted boards to some of my other money sites and set it up to do 400 pins/day, 100 follows/day and 10 invites/day....i tested a few times pushing the pins harder than this, but started getting "you are hitting the limits" so dialed it back to where i am now. So I have basically added around 8k followers in 6 months....not dynamic by JL standards, but I am in it for the long haul so speed is not important to me.

Is this a new development by Pinterest to limit growth of accounts? Or just accumulating followers? I notice from time to time, my followers shed by a couple of hundred, and I presume these must be Pinterest cleaning out bot accounts/followers. - as I commented in another thread....personally I think Pinterest is starting to focus on profit over performance....they MUST provide dynamic results for the people / companies that buy the pins and that potentially may well come at the expense of your traffic.....secondly, they recently appear to be going through issues in terms of account followers, as you and several others have commented the number of followers is sluggish at best, this again could be a deliberate effort to turn away the GRQ crowd, and yes the drop in followers I would agree is related to bot accounts.....but to my mind there is still fantastic potential in Pinterest for us, you only need to take a look at Black Hat World to realize that Pinterest still confuses the masses, and compared to the likes of Instagram is not really being aggressively targeted.

My traffic is so "stable" each day that I could draw a straight line for months on end. - on some of my accounts i also see the straight line, which is what I mentioned regarding my CB sites, which is just perfect for me....why it happens I don't care, but the traffic is VERY stable(just like the old days of Google). The big swings in traffic numbers really all comes to my old info based money sites where I guess the popularity of pins increases/decreases on a daily basis(a lot of which has to do with follower numbers & engagement.

Social Multiplier 2 / SM2 Instance Error
« Last post by webtolight on Today at 01:12:09 PM »
Hi Jon,

So I'm running my third instance of SM2, and I get this error when I add a new pinning job.

When I add a new following job, it runs just fine along with other things.

What could be happening that I get this error?

Thanks!

Yup, because we had a bunch of redirect sites in place (we have even more in place now). So it still does very well every month.
