Pinterest Drives More Traffic Than Google+, YouTube and LinkedIn Combined [STUDY]

Pinterest is social media’s rising star — and now has the traffic stats to prove it.

The darling network of brides-to-be, fashionistas and budding bakers now beats YouTube, Reddit, Google+, LinkedIn and MySpace for percentage of total referral traffic in January, according to a Shareaholic study.


Pinterest accounted for 3.6% of referral traffic, while Twitter just barely edged ahead of the newcomer, accounting for 3.61% of referral traffic. In July 2011, Pinterest accounted for just 0.17% of referral traffic, proving the site’s blockbuster growth.

Facebook reigns king of referrals, accounting for more than one-quarter (26.4%) of traffic, 4.3% of which comes from Facebook Mobile. After Pinterest, Facebook is experiencing the most referral growth, gaining almost one percentage point in December.

YouTube also saw more referral traffic in January than December, rising from 0.98% to 1.05%. Shareaholic suggests the Sh*t Girls Say meme may explain this increase in referrals.

Despite the increased integration of Google+ into Google products, the social network lost some referral traffic in January, falling from 0.24% of referrals to 0.22%. Google — encompassing search, news, images and Gmail — also saw its referral traffic decline from 3.69% to 3.62% in the past month.

Given Pinterest’s monster growth, who do you think can benefit most from the social network, brands, news sources or someone else? Let us know who you think will win big with the rise of Pinterest.

    As you can see, Coach has multiple opportunities for growth. Since then, these two have overseen the company’s growth from around half a billion $ in sales to over $5 billion. Earlier this year, Krakoff left the company to pursue his own brand. Neither does Coach depend on large cash outlays for capital expenditures (only around 15 17% of Cash Flows from Ops is spent on capex) or for R (not a penny has been spent on R in the last decade). This leaves major room for not only return on capital in the form of business expansion, but return of capital to shareholders in the form of dividends and buybacks. Coach has reduced its shares outstanding by about 5% over the past 2 years, buying back about 15MM shares. The BOD plans to buy back around 13MM more, having recently approved a $700 million buyback. The current dividend yield is 2.5% with a payout ratio of 35%, leaving room for growth in dividends as well. Annual return on equity for Coach has dipped below 40% only ONCE over the past decade; the other years experienced growth over 40%, with 2012 reporting 58% ROE. Don’t overlook this this statistic means that Coach can reinvest earnings back into its business and basically double their invested cash every 2 years. Man, it’s great to be a shareholder of companies who can do that. Coach is trading at only about 82% of its average P/E ratio over the last 4 years (14.9 vs 18.3). If the smoke clears on Coach’s business prospects in Asia and men’s markets, a rerating of the stock to previous valuations would provide a 20% upside to today’s stock price. Even if Coach continues to lose domestic market share in handbags, the international growth story remains largely unaffected. But if Coach can right the ship on handbags for their next few collections, the company would be firing on all cylinders, in which case a much higher multiple would be warranted, given the correction in their flagship handbags offerings and multiple growth opportunities. If we model a Base scenario in which the North America market stays flat over the forecast period (assuming lost market share in women’s handbags but gains in men’s products and other accessories), our international business still grows at the same rate of the last 2 years of 16%, operating margins and taxes remain constant, I come up with EPS of around $4.00/share, factoring in the stated $700 million in buybacks. A multiple of 15 yields a share price of $60.00, which is about 11% above today’s stock price.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets
    I could add to my blog that automatically
    tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this
    for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would
    have some experience with something like this.
