Pinterest: A Look Back and Now! (2012 - 2015) : Update 2016 : Affiliate Links are Allowed

This post was published here January 13th, 2016.

Having been active on Pinterest since it began, it has been interesting to watch the social media site evolve and quickly gain a footing right next to the established giants like Facebook and Twitter, and carve out their lion's share.




Pinterest: A Look Back and Now! (2012 - 2015)

Back in 2012 this was the latest news concerning the new kid on the block, i.e. Pinterest. ... the increasingly popular pinboarding social network, is able to present a visually arresting interface in large part by using copyrighted images pinned by users.


When this content was published, Pinterest had banned the use of affiliate links.

That was then.  This is now.  

Here's a great article for work at home mom, written by a work at home dad.

The Bing Bing BUY Button | Writedge (Tips for the Home Biz Entrepreneur)

This blog post supplies a summary update to my article The Bing Bing BUY Button | Writedge which was published July 2015.  The update is a contrast and comparison to my Pinterest experience.




Although The Bing Bing site has a lot of good features, it falls way behind Pinterest in search engine ranking. Pinterest has introduced “RichPins” (same as The Bing Bing Buy button), they allow users to convert personal accounts to business accounts, and account holders can also “Promote Pins”.  For this reason, as a home biz entrepreneur, most of my social media marketing efforts are devoted to maintaining my Pinterest profile. 





Create Web Page with Netboard.me | Writedge is a related or similar article published March 2015 about another site which was presented as a Pinterest alternative.  Though the features of Netboard are different from The Bing Bing, the above update results in me making the same decision to choose Pinterest.
