Is your Pinterest profile empty and has no content or followers? SEMrush may be right [full disclosure: I work with SEMrush].
Otherwise I'd expect that you have lots of links from Pinterest, like any decent site that has images on it.
I have a blog where Pinterest is the second largest traffic source. It has hundreds of links from Pinterest and it ranks on Google as well.
Apparently it depends on the actual links. Treat your Pinterest profile like any website. A link from an empty site might always be detrimental.
Hey, don't worry about it, at all.
Pinterest is an authority beast and links from them, even nofollowed, can only help.
I'm having the same dilemma as you. Yesterday I notice in my GSC that I have two links from Pinterest, coming from my profile.
I checked with the Moz bar and those links are dofollow.
But I'm not worried, I'm happy if it's true.
It's is possible that profile links are dofollow because it's a way for Pinterest to reward those who use it regularly, and it's a way for them to attract new folks.
Also, I read somewhere that when Pinterest was first starting out, all links were dofollow, even from pinned images. And this helped them grow insanely fast.
Fear not them Pinterest links:)
It is the benefits #google+
I think it all comes down to building a community, no matter where you're doing it. But Facebook is great for that.
I completely agree with you. There's a power in niche communities. Many tools have their own user groups (Marketo / Hubspot / Salesforce / Pardot) where we can share our tips and thoughts. I also use specific LinkedIn groups because these are communities of highly engaged professionals. They are less noisy, and it is easier to reach people with your content there.
Instagram? You've listed all the big ones, you've probably forgot to add Instagram. If you don't use it, start now, even with the declines in reach and getting harder to work organic there, it's still worthwhile.
Reddit is pretty decent for this sort of things, you find the right communities and offer value. Some communities don't allow any promo at all, but many do if you meet their guidelines. Get involved, you have to care at least a little bit...
I'm thinking of trying and writing shorter summaries of my blog posts on Medium and seeing how that would work.
If you're producing videos for YouTube, you already know that creating the video is one of the hardest ways to produce good content. When you've already created the video, the hard part is done mostly, so while you're posting on YouTube, I see no reason not to post on other video platforms like vimeo, dailymotion etc, it will get you some extra traffic. I like commenting on the videos of authoritative figures and brands that are in the same niche but are not direct competitors.
I also like Tumblr. Similar to above, if you're already creating cool content for other social media, no reason not to post it on Tumblr too. It is a smaller network and there may not so many targeted users, but it still gets some extra traffic.
I'm also trying to expand my network on angel.co even though it's not a traditional social network per se. Members there are often people that might be good to have a connection with at some point.
Some niches might benefit from trying out weheartit. I don't use it personally.
On Pinterest, Everything depends on the creativity of your promotional image, product or infographics. It should be more attractive and colorful. I have driven more than 4k traffic on Pinterest through infographics.
Instagram is one of the top social media platforms. With Facebook buying the platform and 813 million active users (according to Statista.com), businesses are moving to Instagram for their marketing and customer interactions. There's also a thing called influencer marketing which many companies are utilizing in their efforts for growing their brand. This is a great blog read about Instagram Content marketing and how it works.
Think of Pinterest as an online board (https://izea.com/2017/05/29/pinterest-influencer-marketing/). I think of it as a fun way to share ideas and content.
I would also recommend checking if any links you repin work. I've come across this issue a few times where I pin something I found interesting to find out the page that was linked has been deleted or made into something else.
