Learn How to Quickly Explode Your Pinterest Traffic

Hi friends!

Today, I want to share how I took my personal Pinterest account with 6,000 views a month to over 35,000 views in less than a month. My strategy involed re-applying what I learned through an e-course and joining Pinterest groups!

Pinterest views are important as they help funnel pinterest clicks for your account. As my views soared, so did my impressions, saves and clicks! Which are crucial to getting traffic back to my site!

#1 Invest In a Pinterest Course

The Best Tips I’ve Ever Received regarding Pinterest came from an e-course by Megan Johnson called Pinterest Ninja

I was so excited about my results! But, first, I have to tell you WHY I thought I had wasted my money, so let me back up a bit.

I’ve been blogging off and on for years, and had never really utilized Pinterest to its full potential. Until now. Now, its the BEST tool for me and has served my blogging business well. Pinterest can help you drive traffic to your web site unlike any other outlet.

Pinterest Ninja was fantastic for several reasons: It takes you step by step through the process of setting up a business account, simple tips for utilizing keywords, how to get your pins to go viral and tons more.

I started out with 6,000 views a month. After implementing the tips I learned through Pinterest Ninja, I dropped to 5,000. However, I continued to implement all that I had learned, maintaining a consistent method, and now have over well over 35,000 views a month!

That has led to an increase of web traffic, and an overall new appreciation for Pinterest!

So, please enroll in Pinterest Ninja if you are serious about building your web site traffic. That’s my personal affiliate link to boot!

I know a lot of people say that views don’t matter-that’s ridiculous-more views means more exposure and more exposure means more web traffic!

#2 Join Group Boards on Pinterest 

Another way to increase traffic is to join group boards. Some people will say that priorities have changed with boards and while that’s true it is still a huge help in order to gain traction with your traffic! Just be sure to keep pinning to keyword related boards as well! For example: If you are pinning about your favorite menu plan, pin to boards with the keywords menu plan and then find group boards that deal with food. Make that your priority and then pin to lifestyle group boards!

Also, be sure to join my Pinterest Community Board that currently has over 2,000 members. It’s another great way to get your pins out there!

Pinterest Hacks You Should Know

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!

Easy Social Media Marketing Strategy For Pinterest

Having a solid social media marketing strategy in place for Pinterest is important for bloggers! It can really help you to grow your traffic! Today, I’m going to share a few tips that helped me grow my blog.

I remember the minute my friends told me about Pinterest.  I signed up.

Pinning became somewhat of an Olympic sport…I even had a pin go viral way back when. But, the dust settled and I honestly thought my days of pinning were over.

Then I stumbled on a few bloggers who shared their Pinterest stories.

Had I missed a crucial opportunity for growing as a blogger? Yes. Yes, I had.

I read a free course, downloaded a book on the topic and put what I learned to use.

By implementing just a few habits with Pinterest my numbers now only grew- they doubled and now have nearly tripled in less than a few months!

Here’s some stats:

I started with roughly 6,900 views on Pinterest at the end of May.

By the beginning of August, I had reached 19,000 views. And now, my number vary anywhere from 60k to 90k! It changes due to algorithms.

Pretty cool, right?

But, here’s the thing. While several tricks helped, I noticed that one specific tip is what became my personal game changer.

Pinterest Groups! And not just any groups. Viral groups targeted for bloggers like me. These were groups with 10,000 or more bloggers who participated daily.

TIP: I highly recommend checking out Top Viral Blogs on Pinterest. She has a plethora of viral boards.
