Five Things You Should Know About Pinterest Traffic

Pinterest traffic

is up and Facebook referrals are diving. How are you making changes to your blog promotion? More Pinterest, am I right?

According to a

new report by Shareaholic

, the percentage of website traffic coming from Facebook has already declined drastically in the second half of 2017. As you can see in the chart below, Facebook’s share of all visits to a sample of 250,000 websites has dropped from 30.9 percent in the second half of 2016 to 18.2 percent in the last six months of 2017. Shareaholic attributes the drop to a

number of earlier changes

that Facebook made to its news feed last year and to a general change in user behavior on the platform.

A quick note about the reviews on this site: I am an affiliate for every product I review. The vendors of these products give me them without charge in order for me to test them. However all my reviews are done as honestly as possible and I make no promises to the vendor prior to writing my review. Should you click a link on this site that takes you to a paid product this link will be an affiliate link and I will be paid a percentage of the sales price should you decide to purchase that product.
