  • How very Pinteresting I was reading up on Pinterest rteencly and the stats are incredible. Pinterest accounts for 3.6 percent of referral traffic, while Twitter just barely edged ahead of the newcomer, accounting for 3.61 percent of referral traffic. In July 2011, Pinterest accounted for just 0.17 percent of referral traffic. All this in just over 2 months is very very impressive and out of the 10.4 million registered users 97 percent of those users are women so maybe there is a lesson there? Women pick-up new web trends quicker then men? Maybe maybe not..
