I am asking this in the business forum because I think it is relevant to any business with an online presence.
I do not have a business, but I do enjoy making cakes for my family and friends and posting photos on my cake blog. I recently received a message from someone asking about one of my cakes (it's the Sister Missionary Shirt Cake in my photos). In the email I received, she mentioned that a photo of my cake was making the rounds on Pinterest. I was surprised and excited to hear that people liked the cake and were sharing it. But, when I went to check it out for myself, I was disappointed.
I did find where people had pinned it, but none of the pins link back to my site. Some link to Google and many have broken links. Not one of the pins links back to my blog. I guess I'm disappointed that I could be getting more traffic to my blog, but the Pinterest photos are not linked to it in any way.
I guess I have two main questions:
1. Is there a way to fix the broken links so they reach my blog?
2. Does Pinterest have an image search like Google has? You know, where you upload an image and search that way instead of searching with key words?
I would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.
