Today, I updated a post that I haven’t done much with in a little while. Pinterest isn’t a publicly-traded company so they aren’t required to share any data quarterly like some of their social network peers. For a while, Pinterest stats were popping up so quickly that it was tough to keep up with them. Things have quieted down considerably up until recently.

Below are a few of the new and updated Pinterest stats that I posted today. Please visit the full posts, listed below, for many, many more stats.

You and I Collide: a PR and SEO Story

While many businesses, organizations, and individuals view PR and SEO as separate entities, they have become two sides of the same coin.

Public Relations (PR) is the practice of managing the spread of information between an individual or an organization and the public.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or webpage in a search engine’s “natural” or unpaid “organic” search results.

These practices used to be very different. SEO was focused on broadcasting as many links as possible, and luring search engine bots into websites with little to no content. Now, search engine traffic is derived from content, HTML, and the exclusion of link spamming sites. Nowadays, PR and Search Engine Marketing (SEM) have become more alike than ever.
