Joining big Pinterest boards is one of the best ways to get traffic from Pinterest and to get your pins noticed.

Trying to find them from Pinterest itself is a little like looking for a needle in a haystack. However you can easily find Pinterest group boards to join using these two simple methods.

The first is to search for Facebook groups dedicated to Pinterest Board Collaboration. You can also try this on Google Plus but I have not had nearly as much success there as I have had with Facebook groups.

The second way is to use to find boards on Pinterest - you can then go to the board and find the instructions in the board on how to enter. Usually the board owner will require that you follow the board and either comment on a Pin or send an email to request to join.

Remember that each board that you join will have its own set of rules set by the owner of the board. Pay careful attention to those rules or you may find yourself being removed!

Also keep in mind that while joining big Pinterest group boards you also have the option to add collaborators to your own boards. This is useful since boards with lots of Pins will generate more interest and will rank higher which means you may get much more traffic. In addition to that you control the board which means you have a lot more control.

Great Information.

Thanks very helpful

how do I make my pintrest profile so I can accept others as a group?

have not seen where to do that.

You mean you want to add other people as collaborators to your boards?

In the same way that I showed you how to find Facebook groups you can then post in those groups letting people know that you are inviting collaborators.

You can also let people know in the description of your group and how they can contact you to request an invite.

Once your board has a certain amount of followers, pins and collaborators you can add your board to so people can easily find you :) I can't remember the amount of followers, pins and collaborators you need but you can check that on the pingroupie website.

Thanks for the info. I have just a few followers at this time so that needs to change im sure.

thanks for the help

Honestly I think that lots of people find your pins through the big boards and through search, I have good traffic and I don't have a massive amount of followers. That is the beauty of Pinterest :)
