As we reported here before, referral traffic from Pinterest is rising fast. Today, Shareaholic released January 2012 referral traffic numbers that pin that number where it belongs.

It turns out, in the month of January, Pinterest referral traffic was greater than referral traffic from YouTube. And from Reddit. And from Google Plus. All combined.

Dear Pinterest: Can We Talk?

    This is good to read as I think it’s very useful for brands, particularly in travel. Time will tell how it affects the bottom line but I run a travel site and rather than just re-pinning nice pictures, we have decided to use Pinterest solely as an adventure holiday shop window, each board categorised around the themes of the trips we aggregate on Much Better Adventures. Every picture is a trip that can be booked direct and is priced and linked. Here is our board: http://pinterest.com/muchbetteradven/ if you’d like to see an example of how Pinterest could work very well for the travel industry. – Sam
