The data from Shareaholic informs us that Pinterest is sending more traffic to their users' websites than Yahoo organic search. In fact, Pinterest is also sending more traffic than Bing and Twitter, too, coming in at Shareaholic users' fourth largest traffic driver in August. The sample size was based on 200,000 websites that are using Shareaholic’s widgets. The post included some impressive graphs and charts to illustrate these numbers.

"Over the past few months, Pinterest traffic has been especially hot. Since May, Pinterest traffic has more than doubled in size. Its growth is even more pertinent when comparing it to organic traffic: Since January, Google, Yahoo and Bing organic traffic has decreased by 15.63% on average."
