Pinterest Strategy: Increase Traffic to Your Blog

Last Update: August 20, 2019

HEY, PEOPLE..JUST A REMINDER

By now, you should be making your business FUN! Yes, I said fun. Because, when you do what you love and love what you do, it's not really work.

Well, a really FUN part of my daily duties in my Affiliate Marketing business is posting Pins and Creating Boards on Pinterest. For every website blog I write and every picture I post on it, I create a Rich Pin with Rich Text, and flooded with great keywords! (Yes, I use Jaaxy to find them for my Pins on Pinterest, too!) Each one Pin is posted to numerous Boards that I've created, all under topics relating to my websites.

I JUST HIT 88.8K MONTHLY VIEWERS ON PINTEREST..

...and that total is climbing toward 100K as we speak! I also have 4K Monthly Engaged followers, which means definite communication! They repin my Pins, engage in conversation and comments, visit my boards and Pin to my Boards. So, there's a great deal of clicking going around! Here's a closer view:

The title of this blog post is the same title I used for a blog I wrote for my website, thus, the Pin in the photo. By the way, "Pinterest Strategy" is a great KeyPhrase! And with that said, this post will rank well, too!

MY PINTEREST ANALYTICS.

Another main reason I love Pinterest is because you can track your audience insights using their analytics. However, you need a Business Account to use it. Check out these stats:

UPDATE: Oops! It Went Up Again!..7 days later.


I also love to post Pins targeting women entrepreneurs. For instance, I have a Board called "Female Power" and women flock to it! It is the highest ranking board I have!

I have some blogs I've written and targeted on my website that are geared toward women empowerment, so it's perfect that I promote them on Pinterest!

THE REASON?

Pinterest is a Social Search Engine that consists of over 80% women! Plain and simple! You find high quality keywords through their search engine and implement them to your Pins!

So, as the needle continues to go up as I write more blog posts for my website and post more Pins, traffic will also continue to be on the rise. Yes, and this all leads to conversions and success!

Here's the Pin photo I created for my blog that I used as a Pin. I tweaked the description/text, adding more keywords for more exposure:

Note: I also use the Pin It Plugin so people on my site can click on a photo and automatically Pin it. Plus, I can click on it myself as an easy way to Pin with less steps!

OH, AND THE BEST PART?

It's totally free! However, you can promote your pins to greater audiences to really increase the amount of traffic you want to "drive" to your site!

These are all just some fun thoughts to tantalize your interest!

Pinterest is an awesome tool and far better for bloggers than InstaGram (Big Money- Big Data).

For sure, Andy! I love Instagram, too, but can really scale up with Pinterest! (And it's far more fun than just posting photos that get Likes!) Love the increased interaction!

My Pinterest account has gone through the roof as well
I have about 80% female follower's as well and my business is gardening. It's not difficult to get followers if you pin consistantly. Even when I don't have any pins of my own I Simply repin those of others Jim
