12 Sites That Are Like Pinterest

12 Sites That Are Like Pinterest image pinterest like sitesWe’ve written before about the SEO and general marketing benefits of Pinterest. There are other websites, though, that work just like Pinterest, even if they don’t look exactly the same. I’ve been examining Pinterest and 12 similar sites to see how their content appears on the page and in the Google Index. Here’s my handy SEO guide to them all.

The Fancy appears to have no “rel=nofollow” attribute present.
To see posts in the Google index, search for “site:www.thefancy.com/things”.

Vi.sualize – links include “rel=nofollow”.
Posts indexed in Google – “site:vi.sualize.us/view”.

Notcot – I couldn’t find a nofollow attribute.
Posts indexed in Google – “site:www.notcot.org/post”.

Designspiration – It’s image sharing, but each image post has a text link to the page that features the image. A “nofollow” is not present on this link.
Posts indexed by Google – “site:designspiration.net/image”.
