Why am I seeing a drop in traffic?

It’s common to see profile and Pin performance fluctuate over time. If you observe one or more of the following trends, the traffic drop may be expected. Try considering these suggestions: 

  • Observe larger date ranges and see if there was a sudden spike
  • Seasonal trends and/or seasonal content
  • Your account may have been suspended
  • Filter for other metrics such as engagement, closeups, clicks, etc. to see if this is affecting your entire account or only affecting certain metrics
  • There may be patterns split by device, source, content type, or format

I have seen small periods where my numbers drop but then bounce back up shortly after. Thanks for the info! 🙂

@PinterestGabby, Can't we have some feature where we can see real time stats or at least quick traffic stats from today .

We have to wait for 2-3 days for the traffic stats to appear.

I saw a 50% decrease after Thanksgiving through about mid-January, but it's finally starting to creep back up again 🙂

Same here. My % took a nosedive right after Christmas.

If we see a sudden spike in traffic, what should we do to try and keep that consistent?

Good tips! I think traffic has a lot to do with overall trends and if we aren't staying current with trending key words then our pins aren't going to have traffic.

I dived into Pinterest100.com tonight and it was so interesting to see emerging trends. There were topic's I would have never expected such growth.  I think this will really help when developing new pins and what key words or topics are growing.

On the flip side it would be so interesting to see the top 100 topic's that have declined. What aren't people searching for anymore? I would love to know! 

Thanks! Nicole
