Optimize your profile, boards, and pins for SEO

  • Organize your boards.
  • Use some theme throughout your boards.
  • Connect your Twitter and your website to your Pinterest account.
  • Clean up your boards. Give blog boards SEO friendly name, not a cute name.
  • Don’t ignore board description.
  • If you have personal boards for your reference, make it a secret board.
  • Create a separate board for your blog
  • Pin your graphic to your blog board first and then repin it to the relevant other boards. In that way, you have more repins on your blog board.

Don’t just pin your own stuff

Don’t always self-promote. That is not acceptable. Promote other people’s stuff and your pins will be repinned my friend!

Check what you are pinning before repinning an image

YA may be the pin will lead to a dead end. Be responsible and check what you are pining.

Remove no repined pins

If you pin doesn’t have a repin why keep them right? If you have pins that have high repin number it means Pinterest understand you are popular. So if you remove all the no repin graphics from your account, you will automatically have higher repinned pins. So Pinterest understands that you are popular.Hope this post help you to build your Pinterest strategy and increase blog traffic.
