How to Pinterest for Bloggers

When you pin a post make sure you are pinning from the url you would like the post to lead back too.  Try to not pin back to a main page, but to the page the image comes from.  This will keep new readers from getting frustrated and uninterested.  

Share your newly pinned item on your social outlets

Organize your Boards with clear descriptions that are searchable.  

  • Rather than naming a dessert board “yum” name it “desserts”.  Most people will search desserts rather than yum.
  • Skip “for the home” board and opt for a kitchen board , bathroom board, etc. The more identifiable labels the more likely you will get followed.

Pins should have clear descriptions that are searchable.

  • When adding a picture to your blog or site, take a moment to clearly add the appropriate {Alternative Text} for the image.  When someone goes to pin a picture off your blog they don’t always take the time to add a clear description.  Adding the alt text description to your picture will transfer over to pinterest as the description.
  • Edit descriptions on your pins to make them more desirable
