Many bloggers would love to have more traffic arriving to their blog from Pinterest. The fact of the matter is that Pinterest has a high ranking with Google search engines. The reason we all know this is because when you’re doing a search on Google more often than not within that first few results you will see a link to Pinterest. This means Pinterest truly ranks high in search engines and as a blogger, you must learn how to take advantage of that status. Today I am going to share how to boost your blog using Pinterest.

Sign up for a Business Account
The first step as with anything you do online is to make sure you have access to the most extensive analytics possible. Signing up to have a Pinterest business account will open the doors to having ample analytics to ensure you are measuring the reach of your adjustments to boost your blog using Pinterest.

Use Hidden Pin Images
Using the code after your image code will allow you to insert more than one pinnable image per blog post. This will showcase more than one image when a person clicks the “save” or “pin” button located in your blog post. Having more than one pinnable image option will help drive more traffic because it gives users new images to appeal to their visual senses to compel them to click through to your blog post content.

Make Description Enticing
When you pin an image to Pinterest you can insert a description. The best way to force a visitor from your blog post to input the proper description is to use the “alt text” option within your blog dashboard when uploading an image. Be sure to include an enticing description within the “alt text” area of every image you insert into the blog post that is meant to be pinnable. This will ensure you are using proper SEO to boost that traffic to your blog using Pinterest.

Know Best Time to Pin
Lastly, you will want to analyze the data from Pinterest analytics to figure out what time of day your target audience seems to use Pinterest. There are other websites you can search out that will help guide you through which niche market’s target audience is on Pinterest and when. This data will help you to schedule your Pins using a service like Tailwind or CoSchedule to reach your target audience when they are actually online.

These are simple, easy to follow tips that should help you start getting more traffic to your blog via Pinterest in no time. Be sure to remain dedicated and motivated to use these tips I shared today on a regular basis.
