The Simple Pinterest Strategy That Will Skyrocket Your Blog Traffic
Hey there, friend! I have a very easy and very quick little guide to share with you today on how to up your Pinterest prowess and ultimately increase your blog traffic – like crazy!
Using this SEO strategy, I sent my Pinterest page views and my website page views up over 10x what it had been before! This sends over a thousand new people to my website each day.
I don’t use the word ‘skyrocket’ lightly, but in this case, skyrocket is exactly what happened. I managed to ‘crack’ the Pinterest algorithm and get all up in the smartfeed (finally!)
So I’m pumped to tell you exactly how to do it for yourself too.
You don’t need a ton (or any) followers on Pinterest to be successful!
The first thing to keep in mind is that Pinterest is NOT a social network, it is a search engine (like Google). What this means is it is SUPER important to set up your images with strong SEO keywords. I’ll show you how to do that below.
What isn’t important on Pinterest is followers. So if you don’t have many (or any!) followers on Pinterest, you can sigh in relief because that isn’t going to stop your chances of getting insanely high traffic! Yay!
STEP 1 – RICH PIN CERTIFICATION
You must have a Pinterest business account, and be approved for Rich Pins. It’s free. I have a guide on how to set up Rich Pins here. Read that first if you aren’t already set up for that.
STEP 2 – AN EASY IMAGE SEO TRICK
This little trick is a simple and quick way to add keywords to your pins, so that they show up high in search results.
SEO can be confusing, but this is an easy way to implement strong SEO to your images/website without a headache.
First, go to your image library in WordPress ( Media / Library) and click the image you intend to pin on Pinterest. Here’s what one of mine looks like:
It’s important to use alt tags on all of your photos, which are descriptive words for what your image and post is about. To do that, enter your info in the ‘Alt Title’ space, In the Alt Title space I’ve put:
“Start A Profitable Blog Toolkit – Everything You Need To Do To Start An Awesome Money-Making Blog – Tools And Resources I Use To Make Money Blogging – Passive Income – Affiliates – Content – Social Media – Management – Seo – Social Media Marketing | http://www.herpaperroute.com”
Then you will see that in the Description area, I’ve put a whole bunch of words. These are my keywords. These keywords are anything that someone might type into Pinterest or Google when looking for what my Pin is about.
As you can see, when the pin appears on Pinterest in the feed, it looks like this. Because I have enabled Rich Pins (Step 1), my profile picture appears, along with my blog info.

STEP 3 – SIGN UP FOR BOARDBOOSTER
Sign up for a new account on BoardBooster: here is a link to sign up for free with your first 100 pins free too!
I’ll show you exactly how to set up your boards and use this app below. You can try everything out and see how you like it – but I’m certain that you’ll love it.
I knew on the second day of my trial that it was something I’d stick with because I saw how much my traffic shot up with it. The monthly plans are just $5, so it is definitely budget friendly.
STEP 4 – SET UP A CAMPAIGN IN BOARDBOOSTER
Log in and attach your Pinterest profile. Once logged in, you will see this main page. Our goal is to create an automatic schedule, so that your pins go out to all of your group boards each day, several times a day without repeating or spamming.
This method will ensure that your pins are getting maximum exposure while spreading them out evenly. Once you set this up, the app will work on auto-pilot so you won’t have to do anything. Set it and forget it, baby!
Click the top ‘Pinning Tools’ and then ‘Campaigns.’
From there, click the pink button for ‘New Campaign’ and then for campaign type, select ‘Random Campaign.’
This will allow you to set up an auto-schedule so that your pins are sent out to as many group boards as you’d like, each day on repeat. This will increase your page views massively!
In the pop-up window give your campaign a name, and set when the campaign will run. I set my campaign to run every day, from 8am-10pm.
Next, choose your ‘source board.’ The source board is the one BoardBooster will get your pins from, to send to other boards. I recommend you make a board on Pinterest that is set to ‘secret’ (invisible) and pin everything that you want to share there. Then use this ‘secret’ board as your ‘source board’ in BoardBooster.
Once you have set your source board, go ahead and set your ‘target boards.’ Target boards are all the group boards which you are a member of. (You should be a member of as many group boards as possible!) Select which ones you’d like to pin to, and choose how many pins per day each board will get. 3 or less to each group board is a good bet!
