Facebook Vs Pinterest

What do you think is the best website for generation traffic?

neither are great for me, although i get more referrers from pinterest, although i've made more sales from people coming from facebook.
(not a one has purchased from pinterest)

but somehow what do you think was helpful or still giving references to your business or purchase leads?

as i said not one visitor who came from pinterest has ever purchased - not that i get that many, 1 or 2 a day.

a small handful of visitors from facebook have purchased.

It's not a one vs. the other, you use them all.

A good marketing business plan means putting your message out there in as many places as possible and not get stuck in the same pitfalls that you see happen to people that bank their livelihoods on a position in Google.

To have a good thriving online business you need a balanced mix of SEO, PPC, directories, social media, etc.

Anything less is either narrow minded, lazy, or both and a recipe for massively critical failure in the event something happens to your primary traffic source.

More importantly, you might need to custom tailor your message for each platform because what works on Facebook may not work on Pinterest or Twitter, etc. Always try A/B testing to find the sweet spot for each platform.

Like others have stated, I'd use both. In addition, you can combine them so that what you do on pinterest appears on facebook.
