Many bloggers know that using social media is an important part of their ability to reach more people worldwide with their content and in turn make more money on their blog. Today I’m featuring some of my top tips to improve Pinterest visibility and engagement so that you can excel in your efforts to promote content on Pinterest.
Pinterest Tips To Increase Traffic, Visibility and Engagement
Take Advantage of Alt Text
It’s so important that you use some of the best SEO practices when it comes to having images shared on Pinterest. You can optimize your chances of showing up in search results via Pinterest by using the alt text part of your image. You basically do this when uploading the image into your blog post. Whenever you’re including a Pinterest friendly image in your blog post, fill in the alt text or alt description area of your image so that this is what your blog post will be indexed as when it’s shared on Pinterest.
Adjust your Pinterest Boards
People are able to follow individual boards on Pinterest rather than just following an individual account, so it’s important that you know which Pinterest boards are the most popular in your Pinterest account. You can do this by looking through your Pinterest account and reviewing the follower count on each board. Once you’ve figured out your top followed Pinterest boards, be sure to place them in the top row of your Pinterest profile so that you can improve your Pinterest visibility and engagement.
Understand your Audience
Pinterest has its own analytics dashboard for business account users to be able to review what’s going on with your Pinterest account. You can review this data to get a feel for what boards and images are the most popular. Once you’ve evaluated this data you can then work to create similar images for future blog posts and work to develop content based on what users on Pinterest are looking for. When you use your business account data to develop future social media content you’ll find that you quickly improve Pinterest visibility and engagement without much effort.
Write SEO Descriptions
When it comes to Pinterest it’s all about SEO. Be sure that you’re writing descriptions for your Pinterest shares that are based on popular keyword data for the specific topic. Using SEO when writing your Pinterest description will help you to rank higher on Pinterest as well as in search engine results because you’ll be telling the search robots exactly where to rank and place your Pinterest content when users are searching out those specific keywords.
Create Eye-Catching Pinterest Graphics
Pinterest users will gravitate towards Pinterest images that stand out. A gorgeous Pinterest Graphic can make all the difference and even make a blog post go viral.
