"My individual expertise is that there are very few recommendations from Pinterest per pin - and I'm in the woman art bizniss"
Hey. Me too. Lady crafts, of all things. I get virtually no traffic per pin.
Google Trends has changed a lot, but back a month ago, I could see that most of the referral traffic from Pinterest goes to recipe sites - like 9/10 top referred sites are recipes, and one was haridressing if I recall.
Outside of those two areas, food, food, food and a bit of hair, pins probably cause more harm than good. Including pushing source pages down in the SERPs, but that's a whole other story.
