Pinterest Tips: The Simple Pinterest Strategy That Will Skyrocket Your Blog Traffic

 

Using this SEO strategy, I sent my Pinterest page views and my website page views up over 10x what it had been before!

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 smart feed.

So I’m pumped to share my Pinterest tips with you.

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.

Some Quick Pinterest Tips

  1. Join as many Pinterest group boards as you can find, that fit your niche. See How To Find Pinterest Group Boards
  2. When you have a new blog post / new pin, make sure that you pin it to one of your niche boards first, a board with lots of keywords that is on-topic for what this new pin/blog post is about. Don’t post it to your ‘best of ‘ board or any ‘catch all’ board on the first day. You need to give the first pin its keyword juice, to signal to Pinterest so it knows how to show it in search results.
  3. Manually pin a bit each day.
  4. Use Tailwind to schedule pins to your group boards.
  5. Tailwind Tribes is pretty freakin’ amazing, right? Come join the HerPaperRoute tribe here and get a $15 Tailwind credit too!

 

Pinterest Tips 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.

Pinterest Tips 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:

 

How To Set Up Images And Pins With Rich SEO KeyWords To Improve Traffic And SmartFeed Reults

 

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 | 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.

    Super informative post! I’ve been using hashtags on my Pinterest images and images for my blog, such as #bloggingtips, #moneytips, etc., followed by the title of my blog post. Is this not as effective as the keywords you suggested in your post?

    I’ve been needing to learn a little more about Boardbooster. I’m getting towards the end of my Tailwind trial and it’s time for me to try Boardbooster before paying for a pinning service! Thanks for the insight! xx

    with love, Jordyn
