Pinterest now is the third most visited social site. Although we all know it is growing really fast from strength to strength, but with the good news, we were all surprised and want to share with you immediately!
The ranking is based on the total number of U.S. visitors during March. Although it does not include mobile traffic, according to Experian spokeswoman Jennifer Marshall, but it puts Pinterest ahead of heavyweights such as LinkedIn, Google+, MySpace and Tumblr.
Last month, Facebook had more than 7 billion total visitors; Twitter had 182 million; and Pinterest had 104 million total visits from people in the United States, according to data sent to CNN by Experian.
Matt Tatham, a spokesman from Experian, commented: “The site has really just rocketed. It’s just been tremendous since [Pinterest] took off around October and then in the last few months. With Pinterest, it’s kind of a new take on an old thing. Social networking is great. Pinterest is great. The way people are sharing on Pinterest is new.”
Pinterest’s traffic jumped 50% between January and February. The report calls the site “the hottest social media start-up since Facebook and YouTube.”
Those stats add momentum to a site that already had become one of the hottest topics of conversation on tech blogs and was known to be one of the fastest-growing networks.
In February, Pinterest was the third-fastest-growing site on the Internet in the United States, with 17.8 million unique visitors that month, compared with 11.7 million in January, according to a report from another Internet tracking company, comScore.
