Blogs
Find Ideas for Blog Posts:
There are many creative ways to come up with ideas for blog posts, and Pinterest is a great choice! Browse through pinboards using a keyword search related to your blog topic. You’re sure to find a diverse list of pinboards and pins to get your creative juices flowing. Click through some of the results and see what people are sharing on their pinboards as well as which pins are getting a lot of repins, likes, and comments. These are likely to be images and videos that will get your blog audience talking, too, and could be perfect sources for new blog posts.
Share Images and Videos from Your Blog:
When you publish an interesting image or video on your blog, you can pin it on Pinterest, too. Just make sure you pin more content from other sources than your own, or you’ll look like you’re only interested in self-promotion. No one will follow you and you might even be found in violation of Pinterest’s terms of use if you use your pinboards solely for self-promotion.

Here is an example. Imagine that you write a blog about cooking and publish an image of your latest Italian dish along with the recipe on your blog. You can pin the image on a Pinterest pinboard called “My Best Italian Dishes,” making it easy for people on that site to find all of your best Italian creations. Create another pinboard for “My Best Desserts,” “My Biggest Cooking Failures,” “Cooking Tools I Can’t Live Without,” and so on. These pinboards can include images from your blog, while other pinboards could include content from other sources. For example, you could create pinboards called “Dishes from Chefs that Inspire Me,” “Cooking Tools I Wish I Had,” and “Amazing Kitchens.” By pinning content published by other people, you can start to build relationships with them that can lead to blog growth.

Find Your Audience and Engage with Them:
Chances are your blog audience (or people who match your current blog audience profile) are on Pinterest. If you can find them and start to engage with them on Pinterest by liking, repinning, and commenting on their pins, then they might start doing the same for you. That puts your pins in front of a wider audience. Some of that exposure might turn into blog traffic from people who see your pins and want to learn more from you!

Find Online Influencers and Build Relationships:
Just as connecting with your blog audience and engaging with them on Pinterest can help grow your blog, so can finding and engaging with online influencers. Look for people on Pinterest who already have the eyes and ears of your target audience and start following them, repinning their content, liking their pins, and commenting on their pins. In time, your efforts will get noticed and you’ll be able to start building relationships with these influencers. When you get on an influencer’s radar screens, you have the potential to get your content in front of his or her audience, which can lead to a surge in exposure and traffic to your blog.

Save Images and Videos to Blog About Later:
Sometimes, you find a great image or video online that you want to blog about, but you just don’t have time to do it at that moment. Why not pin it on a Pinterest pinboard, so it’s easy to find all of those blog post ideas later? You can create a pinboard called “Blog Post Inspiration” and keep all of your blog post fodder there. It’s just like a file cabinet but without all the paper!

Below are just five tips for success with Pinterest:
1. Use Interesting Visuals.

Words maybe get you shared on Twitter or Facebook, but one of the top tips for success with Pinterest is to use pictures, illustrations, and graphics to your advantage. You want people to share your information, your photos, your sales pitch. That is much more likely to happen with a visual of some sort rather than just some words on a screen.

Pinterest is much more than just pictures. Inspirational quotes, short jokes, or other messages can also become quite popular.

2. Don’t Underestimate Users.

You may think it will be enough to promote yourself or your business on Pinterest just by including your company sales pitch or ads, but Pinterest users recognize these for what they are.

If you merely use your site to promote yourself, you aren’t likely to get many people sharing your posts and even fewer people who want to follow you. Pins get shared if they are interesting, entertaining or helpful. If your posts are none of those things, you won’t find much, if any, benefit to being on the site.

3. Interact With Others.

One of the biggest draws of Pinterest is how interactive the site is. It allows a person to repin items posted by others, follow certain individuals and broaden networks. A successful user isn’t going to just make posts, but will interact with other Pinterest users.

Remember that there are a number of people who have probably been using the site longer and/or better than you. Following them and interacting with them can get you noticed by their many followers and potentially bring them to track you as well.

4. Be Unique and Be Consistent.

You don’t have to be a crafter or a skilled cook to do well on Pinterest. What you do need is a message that is entirely yours and speaks to your customers or readers. If you are true to yourself and your business, readers will pick up on that and will want to see more of what you have posted.

Keep that same message in line when you repin something from another user. If you are using Pinterest to market yourself or your business, you need to be sure that everything that appears on your board, whether it originated with you or not, is in line with what your company does or what you write or do. Keeping that common thread will ensure visitors are never unclear about you or your business.

5. Connect With Users.

Pinterest is a great resource, but like most things on the Web, it isn’t something that should be used on its own. Tie your Pinterest board in with e-mail marketing, other social media platforms and your company website. Entice people to visit your board through alternative means, and you will almost certainly see your number of followers and one-time viewers increase, which can make a big impact in your bottomline.

  1. My experience with pinterest:

    I have used pinterest to improve my site’s ranking and it has improved from page 7 to #3 spot in 3 weeks time.

    I found that the seller named “pinterest”, which ranked first when you search “pinterest” at Fiverr, has produced the best results on my websites. The seller pins my site with 75 different people, not sure how he did this, but it has improved my SERP’s ranking. I’ve tried 5 other sellers who offer similar gigs on Fiverr but they can’t improve my site’s ranking. I don’t know why. Maybe he has magical trick. lol.

    Some benefits of pinterest for seo:
    – Google loves social media signal.
    – Links and images from pinterest are dofollow!
    – Each pin is considered as 3 inbound links.

  4. What you said made a lot of sense. But, think about this, what if you added a little content? I mean, I dont want to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added something to maybe get peoples attention? Just like a video or a picture or two to get people excited about what youve got to say. In my opinion, it would make your blog come to life a little bit.

  5. Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, excellent blog!
