Pinterest is the Third Most-Visited Social Site

According to the report released Thursday by Experian Marketing Services,a digital marketing firm, pinterest is now the third most-visited social-networking site in the United States. Jennifer  Marshall, an Experian spokeswoman, said they based the ranking on the total number of visitors from USA during the month of March not including the mobile traffic.

Pinterest's traffic jumped 50% between January and February. The report calls the site "the hottest social media start-up since Facebook and YouTube." The ranking puts the newbie site ahead of  LinkedIn, Google+, MySpace and Tumblr.

"The site has really just rocketed," said Matt Tatham, another spokesman from Experian. "It's just been tremendous since (Pinterest) took off around October and then in the last few months. With Pinterest, it's kind of a new take on an old thing. Social networking is great. Pinterest is great. The way people are sharing on Pinterest is new."

Pinterest, which lets its users "pin" photos and info from the Internet onto virtual boards, ranks behind only Facebook and Twitter in terms of total visitors, according to the analysis, titled "The 2012 Digital Marketer: Benchmark and Trend Report."

So if you are a blogger and not on Pinterest yet, Why not give it a try to earn higher traffic.
