One thing that is important to remember is that Pinterest isn't just another social media network, but it is also another form of a search engine. Just like Google you can search for posts on Pinterest by entering keywords into the search bar.

Also like being on Google page 1 position 1, the closer to the top of your main Pinterest profile board the more impressions and clicks you will get, because it will be the first thing people see when viewing your profile without having to scroll down. Even though most will scroll down, it’s better to position the most important boards at the top.

When you create a new Pin Board in Pinterest it is populated at the very end of all of your boards. So if your profile contains a lot of pin boards as mine does, you do not want a board that could bring your website more traffic and potential customers to be all the way at the bottom. So here is what to do.

HOW TO REPOSITION YOUR PINTEREST BOARDS

After you have created your pin board, scroll down to it, and then click on/hold and/drag the board up the screen and place it where you want. The other boards will mover one board to the right, filling in the vacated spot. As you can see in the above image, I have my three most important boards first and those of lesser importance to my website come afterwards.

Now when someone lands on my Pinterest profile board those are the first boards they see, and just by scrolling a little more they will see more interests of mine. That is what Pinterest is after all, Pinning of your Interests. And if you can make the image you use to pin your content to Pinterest very visually appealing, it can be re-pinned over and over again.

In the link below, Kyle explains how to create a powerful Pinterest account that will get you a bunch of followers. Once you start, it is very easy to get followers and you never know, they could become customers too.

TRAINING - How to Create a Powerful Pinterest Account

So I hope this training has given you some better insight into how to use Pinterest to promote your business. One last tip I will give you is that 80% of Pinterest members are women, so if your niche is something that women can get into, you have a greater chance of seeing your website traffic increase. If not, no worries, the amount of men users are steadily growing too.

Please remember to “Like” and/or “Share” my training with others and on social media. If you haven’t yet read some of my past training, below are the links to a couple of my more popular tutorials. Thank you for taking the time to read through and leave your comments or questions below.

Thanks Robert,
I noticed some people create images and then they get found on Google images. E.g. How to Succeed in (MY NICHE) 12 Tips to Getting Started.
Anyone searching and clicks on that image, then drives traffic to that webpage. If I was to grab a free image, overlay my text, & even photo on it
-MY QUESTIONS:
1. Is that a good traffic strategy?
2. How do I get my image to appear Google Images?
3. I.e. Is Pinterest the best way to do this (#2) or another way?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
You are welcome.

1. It could be if you use the image in the right places like social media.

2. Images that appear on Google Images contain the posts target keyword in either its file name or alt text.

3. Not particularly.

Pinterest recently redesigned their website but the premise of social media marketing of your website content has not changed. The only major change other than the way Pinterest looks is that they do not allow you to post affiliate links anymore.

Not even the starred items when you tag them. Finding things easily would make things so much easier. Is there a general guide to finding things in WA?

This is such cool information. I knew nothing about Pinterest. I came across this training probably 3 weeks ago and thought I'd give it a try. Now I'm ready to tell you that I prefer Pinterest over Facebook. I still post to FB and Twitter but I see great interest and engagement with my Pinterest account - which I have to admit was a HUGE surprise.

I took your advice and have personal "personality" on my board with my favorite things and married with my blog and website Financial Nest Egg.

Ironically I get a lot of visits because of my topic keyword (baby boomers), so far most of my pinning activity is on the business boards.

SO COOL!
Thanks, dude! This is fun.

Hey Robert. I have done pretty much all of these steps and I have gained some followers but people seem to be more interested in my non-niche related boards. This training seems to be more about building your own profile. Do you also contribute to popular boards or comment on other people's pins? Do you do anything outside of your own profile in order to gain followers?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
As with every social media outlet, if you do not socialize and comment, like, pin and follow other people, you will not be able to get people to eventually take an interest in your niche. It all takes time and effort on your part to reach out to others and eventually the will take notice.

Hiya Robert. A question if I may? I know you can move boards but not rearrange the pins yet. Is it important in your opinion to have your website pins at the top of the board (pinned last) for maximum exposure?

Thanks - Martyn
Reply
Missa3 Premium
I would say yes Martyn
~D
Reply
MrGambo Premium
Thanks Debra. I would therefore think that it would be best not to overpopulate your boards then so that your important content is always visible. No more than 20 to 30 pins per board - Martyn
Reply
Missa3 Premium
That makes sense too. When your boards get so full and people just scroll and scroll they might not find what they are looking for. With that said you can make more boards as needed and change images from one board to another if you need to.

~Debra
Reply
MrGambo Premium
Yes indeed. If you find one board overpopulated I have seen the move pins option, so it looks pretty simple. Shame you cannot rearrange pins yet though. I did put in a request, but then so have many others judging from a Google search I did. It goes back a year or two. Maybe one day? Still, extra boards would certainly be a viable option. Thanks - Martyn
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Having your most important boards at the top is always best because it will be the first thing people will see when viewing your pin boards. This has an immediate impact so you always want to have your boards arranged this way for maximum exposure.

I have just added an image and description to my Pin board. At the bottom of the input page for this info it asked me to 'confirm website'. I clicked on this box and a box appeared with some html code that I should copy and paste into the 'head' section of my website index page.

Where do I find this index page and where is this 'head' part?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
I have never seen that before. Did you set up a business account for Pinterest? I saw no benefit in that so mine is a personal account and probably why I have never seen that html command before.
Reply
carcol Premium
If you go into 'edit profile' on your Pinterest page, at the bottom of the profile information is your website URL. Alongside this is a box that says 'Confirm Website'. If you click on this it takes you to a box that provides the html that I am talking about.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Oh that! I didn't do that because all it does is place your Pinterest Profile picture with your Pins. Seeing how my website URL is attached to all Pins I could care less about having my profile picture as well.

That has nothing to do with actually confirming your website with Pinterest and it would only be beneficial if I had a business account for using their analytics. Since I do not have a business account, again I have no interest in using that feature.

Great training, as always. Thanks!! Quick question though. Kyle mentioned creating a Pinterest board with our affiliate link. I'm not going the bootcamp route (have my own sites to promote), but I figured, why not create a board makes sense, you never know who'll be interested. Okay so: I put my affiliate link in the description, and added a couple of images from WA site. At the bottom of the image of course it says pinned from wealthyaffiliate.com. Question: how will I get credit, if my affiliate link is not visible, and not clickable? Hope this makes sense. Thanks!! Hindy

Hi Robert, I can't seem to get my website name and location to appear under my name although I've already filled them in under Edit Profile. I clicked on "Confirm Website" in Edit Profile and got this:

Confirm your website
This lets you see what people are Pinning from your site and adds your logo to any Pin that came from your site.
Copy and paste this tag to the <head> section of your website’s index.html file.

Thanks for another great training.
You said something about your link to your website in the pins.

Do you mean by that, that you put a link into the description of the pin, or do you mean the link that is automaticaly added to a pin, when you use the "pin it" button on your site.

I don't want to spam my links, so I want to make sure which is the correct way, before I put links manually into all of my pins.

Thanks!

Great lesson! I think that has just cleared up my confusions with how to set up pinterest. One profile - several boards - one for each website and others as I wish. Question: So I pin my own pages or posts as I wish, but also can pin other things I see that I like to my own websites boards so the board becomes a mix of my own work and others?? Is this correct?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Thank you. Glad you liked the training. To answer your questions...

You could pin other things to the board if they are relevant to your website. But it would be better to have your boards specifically about your website and then create other boards for other non-relevant things you like.

You are welcome Tina! I am glad you found it helpful. I think Pinterest is sometimes an overlooked social media platform. But like Kyle says in his Boot Camp training, it is a visually powerful way to promote your website.

Plus when you think about how what you post is always visible to be seen by those who visit your profile, makes it a more powerful social media network than the others. All of the others have a scrolling time line format, but with Pinterest everything is contained within pin boards that are always visible, which leads to more exposure.

I started with Pinterest a year ago and now have 1000 followers. When I post a good article and add text to it, I always share it on my Pinterest wall. This has led to some traffic which will only increase over time for sure.

This is great advice on cleaning up the boards. I thought I should have been doing it but haven't had the time, its the price we pay for having too many websites I guess.

Yes, the one thing I have noticed is that with the more followers I get the more traffic I get too, as long as I am pinning good content and great visuals.

Great post Robert! Thank you! I also didn't know that you can edit each board. I have a question for you, since you seem to know quite a bit about Pinterest. When you pin a pin from someone else, can you put your information (your website) somewhere on that pin? I don't want to do something wrong and get myself into any trouble. But I would like people to know about my website. How and where do I do that? Cindy
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
You can by I wouldn't do it because you do not know if the image is an original or not, and you wouldn't want the original owner of the image to see you placed your website info on their post. It is best just to put your website info on posts you are making.

I started with Pinterest a few months back and now have 1100 followers..woo hoo! When I post a good article and add text to it, I always share it on my Pinterest wall. This has led to some traffic which will only increase over time.

This is great advice on cleaning up my boards. I thought I should have been doing that but haven't had the time.

It is now my next priority!

Thank you!

You are welcome and as you have seen, the more followers you have the more traffic you will get from not just them but those non-followers too.

Great training. I have been playing around with Pinterest and tried out a few boards. However I have not had good results from it in terms of driving traffic to my blogs.

Thank you. Just like everything having to do with website development, getting traffic from social media takes effort and time.
