    Randomize Pinbot's Functions Hello, I'm currently observing Pinbot's Autopilot mode. I have both like and follow checked, and its not passed daily limit. Right now it is only liking posts. I would think that randomizing the functions would make the program seem more human like. (Humans will both like, follow, and post in randomized increments) I would love to see Pinbot preform it's functions in a random fashion. If this is avaiable already, please let me know Thanks Healzer!

    Hello Tadej, Right now there is only one timeout interval, which is the same for all types. But we are going to change this soon One account per IP/proxy is the most safest. 200 pins per day?? That's quite a lot! Try doing 200 pins and 200 repins manually, I'm sure you'll get tired very very fast. This is not human behavior at all, so it is no wonder your account(s) got banned. 20-50 pins & repins max is much more realistic for a "normal human being"

    Thanks @ilya Suggestion: I think, a feature should be added that, when user repins someone's pin, he should be able to follow that pinner as well. It can bring good impact on user's profile. Because, this way, user can increase his followers by using Follow-for-Follow method.

    Update In the queue viewer, you can now change the destination board for pins & repins: The pie chart (24hr clock) has been improved: added hour labels, updated colors: In "more actions" -> "Misc." the TimeZone dropdown menu has been improved as recommended by @wwhry The much requested promo module has been added. This module allows you to specify URLs (of your own websites) which will be added randomly to the pins and/or repins of mapped boards. Another feature, as you can see on the screenshot below, allows you to remove/strip all URLs from the description upon scraping (automatically) now you no longer have to manually remove unwanted URLs: Use the occurence% spinner to set how often the URL should be added (either to the description and/or source URL). 100% means always the minimum value is 1% Have a great day all!!

    In our previous tutorial, we covered the subtleties that make the difference between a good content writing service website and a lesser one. While we mostly focused on the visual aspects, there are other Internet services that require a massively different approach in order to ensure full conversion potential. Before actually getting started, we’d like to familiarize you with a few concepts. First of all, an average e-commerce website doesn’t require an extensive amount of visuals; in fact, it usually needs to be straightforward and put a lot of emphasis on promoting the products accordingly in the detriment of anything else. Secondly, there’s been an exponential online store increase as of recently, thus a lot of competition between each one of them, regardless of the niche(!). In addition to this, people who prefer online acquisitions have become savvier over the course of years and cannot be easily deluded anymore. As a result, every store struggles to offer the best deal available to ensure as many clients as possible. Last but not least, every online store tries to implement as many payment methods as possible. Here are all the payment methods available on the website we’ve picked for review: Generally speaking, you do not need anything more than PayPal, since it’s the most frequently used payment method on the Internet. However, having so many payment methods make a great psychological impact on the customers, so it is something to consider for long-term use. This is the landing page of the e-commerce website we’ve chosen for review: As you can see, the format of the website is quite standard for this kind of business: we’ve got the category list on the left, a few product posters in the middle of the page, then some don’t-miss-out offers on the right and in the bottom of the page. It is definitely not overfilled with useless visuals that could stray customers away. In its current state, the landing page could sell a lot of people on it. Let’s have a quick look at the logo: This logo excels in two particular aspects: 1.The brand name – very catchy yet quite silly (“best bang for your buck” with an additional perverted innuendo maybe?) 2.The design – if you’ve ever gone on Amazon before, you’d know that this logo is a clear rip-off of theirs. However, as we’ve mentioned right from the beginning, some businesses need to focus their effort on other aspects in order to ensure they convert. In our case, this online store should focus on appropriately and correctly promoting their products. Let’s randomly click on a product image and see how it looks inside: Again, everything’s quite standard: we can notice product photos, the evident discounted price in the midst of the page, a drop-down list enclosing the shipping methods, the beautiful “Buy it now” button, further recommendations and many other things. However, things start to become a little bit off target in the product description: We’ve randomly picked three description excerpts. At first sight, aside from the unreadable small font which could be easily tweaked to our liking, everything would appear normal. However, the grammar used to describe the product is by no means accurate. Some of you would not be truly embarrassed by this particular detail, but most of the people who make online acquisitions balance bad grammar with scam attempts. This has actually become a widely-spread stereotype among Internet users - that we personally do not endorse -. If writing in English, or any other language for this matter, is not a personal asset of yours, you’d be better off if you outsourced it. Moreover, if you were to access the product page yourself, you’d see that, even though the price is relatively high ($139), there is no sales copy available. This is a huge downside for multiple reasons, including but not limited to the lack of style and product enticement. Let’s have a look at a sales copy designed by Apple and another one designed by this store. To us, the one which inspires more credibility is, of course, Apple’s, because the font choice, lexicon and grammar are superior by a massive margin. Also, while somehow understandable, watermarks don’t belong in this kind of promotion. There are a lot of freelancers who would be more than glad to design your sales copies resembling Apple’s for a fraction of the price, so this is outsourceable, too. We do recommend you learn to do these on your own since it’s not as complicated as learning English from scratch. Moving on, we’d like to cover a pretty specific characteristic of this store that not many want to – or can’t – implement: free global shipping. If you’re in the business, you might be already aware that these stores, especially the ones based in China, have special agreements with local post offices. Most of the time, for each 1000 orders that need to be sent out, the store can negotiate special bulk delivery prices for each order in part, starting from a couple of cents to a few dollars. Obviously enough, this cost can be easily implemented in the product price, giving the feeling that the shipping is free. The same discounts usually apply for expedited carriers, too, such as UPS or DHL. Let’s have a look at the checkout page: Do you still remember how we mentioned earlier that by having a lot of payment methods you could positively influence your potential customers? Although we were showed that we could pay using around 10 different payment processors, we are now given only two options: PayPal and Credit or Debit Card. Before lashing out, you must know that this is a common marketing practice among the newlier-launched online stores and it is definitely not an accurate scam indicator. That’s it, folks! If you currently have an online store or plan on launching one, consider the tips laid out in this tutorial!

    Data filtering When pinbot scrapes pins to repost, it can filter pins based on the amount of likes / repins to make sure we are only pinning the highest quality content.

    I would advise you to try this out using the manual mode first. All you have to do is enable the "Pin" feature. Then go to the main viewer, and under "manual actions", perform a scrape for the "pin" feature. This will scrape images from Pinterest and add them onto the queue. If you wish to add source URL(s) to your pins, you'll have to do that in the "Promo" viewer, which you can open from the configuration screen. The next time you scrape, it will add them (depending on the %occurrence).

    Hey That is suspicious as f*ck, indeed. I don't do that, only for promotion pins (once in a while). I tend to keep all my accounts (only 3 right now) as natural as possible. All I do is make sure they behave like real users/people. If you want your pins to go viral: Make sure the pins are great -- nobody likes spam/bullsh*t. Make sure you have many followers (at least 10k) Make sure you are giving something of value to the world (and your followers). My preferred way of going viral is to let my followers (and board contributors) to do all the hard work -- if you're serious, you should consider building relationships with your followers.

    Further to the above, I think you should add keywords based on board name as well. Secondly, add a feature for board creation, that we should be able to create new boards using the Bot. And on main screen of bot, please add a column for "Autopilot Mode" (on/off) so that we don't have to check each of our 50+ accounts to see if they are running on autopilot or not. These little changes doesn't take much time in coding but makes the life lot easier for user. And, if you add the context menu on account row in listview on main window of bot, it will also save few clicks and in coding, its just few lines of code that you have to assign a context menu to the listview I am a .NET programmer BTW

    I have 10 more ideas, but I only look at this from my own tower and the rest of the functions I have in mind will be useful only to people who have at least one big account. The % of the people who have big accounts is very low compared to the % of people who are just starting. Being a marketer tells me this is not a good time investment, because your goal is to reach the mass, not the small % of people. The 2 suggestions in my previous post are good for newbies and pros and there is no software that offers this. And here's my offer: If you do this, I promise to make a step by step ebook on how to grow account using your software, every tiny secret I know (been in IG for 5 years and marketer from 10 years, I've tested everything but the porn niche... I mean everything: adsense, seo, cpa, affiliate, dropship, kdp amazon (yes, I have my own ebooks despite the bad english I know the ways ), I even found a way to cheat google algo. and rank my articles on top fore few days before they ban me from wonderland... churn and burn method, but I've invented it and still works, cuz never shared it... The e-book will be amazing, you just gonna spend time OR some money for redaction, you see my english suck. The e-book can go like a bonus with your bot. I will never offer something like this if I don't see potential. regards

    Update Two major changes have been made: The Invite feature has been added. It works in a similar fashion as it did with PinBot 3. However, Pinterest now allows us to invite any existing user to become a board contributor. Enabling the invite feature, you will have to provide keyword(s) and/or custom queries that allow you to scrape for users. You don't necessarily have to enable the invite feature in the configuration screen ; if you wish to manually invite people to some of your boards, you can use the Manual Actions menu to do so, this way you can manually review which users to invite. Each action (pin, repin, ...) now comes with a daily limit counter. This is solely used by the autopilot feature. So when it starts scraping for activities and putting them into queue, it will first check whether the daily limit for that activity has been reached. For instance on the screenshot above, the daily limit for Pins is 50; and if I have already pinned 45 pins today (in total), then the autopilot will only pin another 5. When autopilot has nothing to work with (in case all daily limits have been reached) then it will just stay idle and wait for the next green slice of the next day before retrying.

    Thanks, in the past the time was visible. However I found it of very little value to see the time. The logging screen's purpose is primarily to detect errors/problems, but also to log important messages (for instance when a query is invalid/incorrect). When you double click a log message, you can see the time + date though; If you can convince me otherwise, I might reconsider Update The third timeslice (evening Pinterest time) has been reduced in duration: 40-50 minutes instead of 70-120 minutes (as seen on the image). The reason for this is to reduce the number of activities, taking also into consideration their respective timeout settings. The number of daily activities would be too high and quite abnormal for regular Pinterest users (Pinterest would consider this an anomaly). A small update on the stats viewer to change the date.

    @ilya I think, in log/message dialog, time-check must be added with each message. So that we can know that bot has generated what message at what time exactly? In first column of messages, rather than #message_number it would be better if its #message_time

    Ohh! Thank you for reminding me, multi-tasking is bad for my health Either way, a source URL is the link which "sits" on the Pin you upload. So if someone clicks the image on your Pin, they will be redirected to the 'source URL'. If you allow PinBot to add source URL, then it will add it to some of your pins, based on the % you define (100% is always; 50% is 50% chance hehe). I believe it is also explained here: http://forum.healzer.com/topic/138-04-pin-feature/ I hope this answers your question

    It is widely accepted by SEO experts that UX (user-experience) plays a major role in rankings. The way Search Engines rank our websites is based on many factors, including, but not limited to: Backlinks (quality & quantity) on-page SEO UX (user-experience) Thanks to improvements in technology, companies such as Google are getting smarter every day. The are able to systematically predict whether a website is user-friendly or not so. They use user-experience metrics, such as: Bounce rate Session duration Page views per visit Return frequency And because they have all of this data, from most websites who use Google Analytics, they are able to create "industry averages" from these metrics. This means, if your website scores above average for these metrics, you are likely to rank TOP 10. If you score below, chances are high you won't rank very high. UX is not very relevant for each industry / niche -- simply because there are many other factors at play. But for most of us, with authority sites, UX already plays an EXTREMELY important role. What does this mean for 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020? If you want to rank higher, you should improve your user-experience. Lower your bounce rate, increase session duration, keep users on your website for longer periods and increase return frequency. Most of us are already doing these things, using various tactics such as: "Related posts" and "related" content plugins (to increase session duration & page views). Exit-intent popups and opt-in boxes (to increase return frequency by sending newsletters). Reverse engineering SEO through CRO CRO: Conversion rate Optimization. " It is a collection of methods and systems to scientifically (using data) improve your website's conversion rate. A conversion is any desired action a visitor should do. This includes buying, entering their email address or using your contact form. " If Google is using UX metrics to determine how high your website should rank... Then by increasing your UX, you will rank higher. This means you have to increase your UX metrics, and making sure Google sees that you have increased them. Google's algorithm is super advanced. It will detect an increase in UX for your website. Which in turn will rank you higher. How can we use CRO to increase UX? " To increase our SE rankings, we have to increase our UX. " Thus to increase our UX we have to improve the conversion rate for our CTA's (Call-To-Actions). A CTA, can be anything; a link to another article OR a buy button OR "subscribe" button, ... This means, making people stay on our sites longer, and have a better experience. Example If you have an opt-in pop-up, and you get 1 new subscriber for every 50 visitors, then you really have to optimize it. Here the power of A/B testing comes into play. Here are two examples of A/B tests for a pop-up box: Why A/B testing? Our original version of the pop-up box has a (CR) conversion rate of 1/50 = 2%. Which means we can always optimize it. There will ALWAYS be a version that's better than the previous one. Visitor's like new things, they want to see something new --> higher CR. The original message wasn't attractive or they didn't bother --> low CR. You improve the message to match their needs or desires better --> higher CR. By changing small details, we can improve our CR to 10/50 = 20%. The cool part is, that this can happen overnight. You don't need to wait 3 months to see a change. If you have traffic, then you can see results in matter of hours, not months. CRO has many more benefits than just increase your ranking on search engines. It can help us increase leads and sales in general. It is the only proven and scientific method that can do that. No other "voodoo" or "guru" method will help you more than data driven A/B testing. Final words UX is just one piece of the puzzle, and an important one. Focusing only on UX won't make you rank on #1. But neither will you rank high if your website has a terrible UX, no matter your backlinks or DA. The truth is that top ranking sites have high conversion rates. They didn't optimize their conversions when they ranked #1, but they did it before they were #1.

    I started with internet marketing in early 2011. In my first six months, I've discovered a method and developed my own small money making machine. It was a fully automated solution which hijacked traffic from other websites and sent those visitors to my landing pages. Right there I presented highly relevant CPA offers, which resulted in pure profits. The entire system had almost zero costs, except for hosting. I had it running until mid 2013 when all of a sudden it all collapsed, I had to find something else. Entrepreneurship is all about flexibility I guess. Thanks to my very first venture, I've learned how to code, right then I decided to create automation software, because I like autopilot solutions. Before I knew I was full-time in the software business. Until this day I still am in this industry, with Clicktrait being my latest piece of art. But why Clicktrait? Over the years, from 2011 to 2016, every single day I was trying to make more sales (and conversions) today than yesterday. Without even knowing it early on, it was called Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO). It is a collection of systems or methods, with the sole purpose of increasing a website's conversion rate, thus generate more money / leads / opt-ins. One of my most favorite strategies early on was A/B testing, I didn't even know it had a name. But the idea was to test different logos, headlines and buy buttons to determine which would get the most sales. Because I knew I was selling to people and some will prefer one image over another. Human beings are emotional creatures, what they see and what they read is impacting their behavior every single second. But that was all I knew, luckily, the reality is that A/B testing is all you have to know to get started. Mid 2015 I made a study and reflected on my successes. What I found out was that A/B testing has made me A LOT of revenue. Without A/B testing the buy-buttons on one of my landing pages, I would've made $10,000.- less that year. Luckily I did and I was able to reap the benefits of it. I didn't realize how helpful it was for my own business until I analyzed its results and impact. A/B testing is changing a few simple, but important parts of your website. And then tracking how they perform. Here's an example of an original website: This one as a new version of the website: The art of A/B testing is to track how many people click on the "Send a message" link on the original version versus the second version. Once we have collected enough data (clicks), we can say which version works best. This insight led to the idea of developing a tool which would allow me to A/B test my websites easier, faster and better. It had to be easy and fast because my initial approach was custom code that dumped data (using PHP) in a text file. And afterwards I had to write a script to process all of that data manually. You can imagine how un-sexy it was. This is how it was like. Clicktrait months 1-3 A lot of things were still manual at start. My first priority was to establish a track-and-store system. This would track clicks on certain elements, but also rotate our A/B elements. So it was already a successful A/B testing tool for my own private use. I started playing around with data aggregation and trying to get the most out of the data. The idea was to discover new ways for interpreting data, in a way other companies weren't doing it. Not all charts proved to be useful and meaningful, some were completely useless or hard to understand. That's why I got rid of them. I also realized that a regular database such as SQL and MySQL won't do the job. We had to use big data solutions, a NoSQL database for storing everything. Some more screenshots of tests I ran back then: Clicktrait months 3-8 There was a lot of experimentation and bug fixing involved during the first 8 months. And in the end, a lot of features have changed throughout the process. The visual website editor was really the "must have" feature. Without it, easy A/B testing wouldn't be possible. And now, more than 8 months later, on July 8, 2016 -- this is how Clicktrait's visual editor looks like: The Click-rate distribution pie chart, shows us exactly how many people clicked our CTA from which A/B versions they were shown. And just recently we've implemented heat maps, which show us how users behave on our website. What makes this feature unique is that the heat map is different for each A/B version. It allows us to see the impact on our visitor's behavior. This is just the beginning of our journey. Our goal and mission is to help companies, individuals and agencies with online marketing. Having a website and getting traffic is just two thirds of the puzzle, the last piece is all about Conversion Rate Optimization. It is the golden key that turns non-buyers into buyers through testing and psychology. See you next time!
