Okay, I love using Pinterest! I use it for both personal and business outlets. It’s a GREAT way to grow your blog traffic!
You can use Pinterest to create menu plans, store future DIY projects, and grow traffic for your web site or blog! The list is endless.
There are two big Pinterest hacks you should know that will help you double the traffic to your blog:
Tip one: Pinterest is NOT a social media network!
This is something I’ve noticed in a lot of blogging circles. People will comment on Pinterest as being their favorite social network. Nope! It’s not. It’s actually a search engine. With that knowledge, it totally changes your game plan, doesn’t it? You’ll start to treat it differently.
Start thinking of it as a search engine instead of a social media network and it will change how you use it overall!
Tip two: Pinterest needs keywords…just like google!
Yep, good ‘ol regular keywords and long tail keywords are important within your pin descriptions. Let’s say you write a blog on healthy recipes. Your goal is to make sure your profile description, pin descriptions and pin titles are saturated (without being spammy, of course) with keywords related to healthy recipes.
Tip three: Type healthy recipes (or the keywords you are focusing on) into Pinterest and see what other niche keywords pop up. That will be a great starting point to knowing what other keywords to use on your post.
Make sure you add keywords to your short pin description, too!
