When creating pins for Pinterest I like to make them work for me the best way they can. As you can see there is a great deal to pinning the right way. So how do we make them work for us?
There are three amazing ways to make your PINS work for you. Are you ready? Here they are!
# 1 Pinterest is one of the smartest platforms out there
Why? Well because Pinterest canread images that have words on them. That is why you see so many pins with words actually in the image (overlaid on the picture). I would say that makes Pinterest pretty smart! If you use this to your advantage you will have one more way to use keywords.
# 2 Backlinking with your pins on Pinterest has so many huge benefits
Let’s cover the ones that you need to remember.
First is that when you add a link to the pin as you build it you are telling Google that this is important, quietly improving your SEO.
Secondly, backlinking your PIN allows you to control what your consumer sees. Remember we said earlier to know WHY you are doing this. Well, this is how you use that to your benefit. Link them where you want them to go. Make sure that your link is to the specific page that you want to drive traffic to. Not just the homepage of your website.
# 3 Design once - use multiple times
When I create a pin I try to think about how to use that one pin three ways. I want to make sure that the keywords that I use will allow this pin to be placed on three different boards. Think about it this way: put the hard work in once and then reuse it two more times. Be sure that you set them to post at different times, not all at once.
