How to use Pinterest to get more blog views

how-to-use-pintrest-to-get-more-blog-views-1.png

I've heard many bloggers say that they get a ton of traffic to their blog from Pinterest but for so many months I couldn't figure out how. I read MANY posts like the one I'm writing but STILL couldn't figure out how to get the results they were getting. Now, while I am not getting thousands of views to my blog from Pinterest I am getting hundreds and I just got started a few days ago! So I can only imagine how things will work out when I get better at using Pinterest!

I'm not going to spend too much time talking so I'll get right into everything I've learned so far to get MORE blog views to my site using Pinterest and how you can too!

ADD PINTEREST SHARE BUTTON TO YOUR BLOG SITE

The first thing I did was I added the Pinterest share button to my website. This will allow people to share the photos that you've used on your blog on Pinterest and when people click it, it will direct them back to your website.

Wordpress users:  Configure> Sharing> Sharing buttons

CREATE A PIN IMAGE FOR YOUR BLOG

Once you finish writing your blog post, create an image for it using Canva etc and make a long image like this one. (Images that are longer tend to be the ones that are clicked on more often)

You need to do this by selecting "Pinterest layout" on Canva OR using two images together like I did.

These are some of my blog post from my website that I created images for and uploaded to my Pinterest account.

Be sure to add the link to that specific blog post and add a short description and the category it falls under.

POST CONTENT THAT PEOPLE WANT TO READ

The pins that get the most traffic are probably the ones that help other people such as "How to gain more followers" How to make $1,000 a month using affiliate marketing" OR "How to get rid of eczema"etc.

People are always wanting to know how to do something so if you have "how to" blog post GET THEM ON PINTEREST ASAP.

TAKE YOUR TIME WITH CREATING THE IMAGES

Make sure you are posting QUALITY content AND pictures. There are probably many other bloggers talking about the same thing you are so you want to stand out with good quality images and pins to attract people to YOURS. Try to keep all of your pins from your blog site consistent so people recognize you easily. (Signature look)

IN ORDER FOR ALL THIS TO WORK YOU NEED TO STAY ACTIVE ON PINTEREST.

KEEP PINING!!!

In only a few days I've managed to get...
