I am creating this tutorial because I had to search, long and hard to find the answer to the question"How do I create Rich Pins with All in One SEO?"

I was sent from one page to another and still ended up with no answer. Everyone seemed to tell me to add the YOAST SEO plugin. Now I know enough to tell you that if you use the platform here at Wealthy Affiliate to host your websites then you will have The All in One SEO installed in your website. Having or using both is not advisable. Some people use YOAST and that is fine but I did not want to swap, having gone to great efforts to set up The All in One SEO with google analytics etc.

This Training is for people using the All in One SEO only.

What is a Rich Pin? And Why Do I Need Them?

If you are reading this then there is a high chance you know, but for those who don't it is a highly effective way of getting your Pins on Pinterest noticed and making sure it remains linked to your website. Pinterest is fast becoming the Social Media of choice for many bloggers and website owners.

One of the main reasons for using Rich Pins is that you can provide useful information to lead people to your site when clicking on the pin. Pinterests normal pins display an image and a brief description. Unfortunately, this description can be altered or edited by anyone who pins your content and there is no guarantee their description will remain accurate or helpful. How many times have you clicked on a pin only to be sent to a totally irrelevant page?

By using Rich Pins, each pin from your site will provide accurate site information that remains the same even if someone enters their own information in the description box.

Go to the next page to find out how to get them activated.

No worries. I couldn't find the answer for days so once I worked it out thought it only fair to share.

Thanks for this training Karen.
I use Yoast SEO. I would expect them to provide for setting up Rich Pins, but from what you say, I take they can't be set up on Yoast.

I was interested to read that the Pinterest account should be a Business one. I've never been sure about that and because I have more than one website, a business account may not work.

Also, Pinterest is very much in control as to one's location in the world. I'm in New Zealand and seem to be controlled by Pinterest in respect to what and where I can move.

My first account with Pinterest was deleted by them due to insufficient action for a while.

Hi Valerie,
YOAST will let you set them up and there are plenty of trainings all over the web for that but none for All in One SEO which is why I did this training.
I am in the U.K and so use Pinterest.co.uk but it is the same for anyone wherever they are, if their input, which was slim, is to be believed.
I also have more than one website/ business but actually managed to get both validated. I did this by validating one then changing website and validated that too.
With Grace and Gratitude
