Effectively Pinning Your Content To Maximize Traffic

Effectively pinning your content

Effectively pinning your content. Most Pinterest veterans have learned that there are certain times when pinning generates more traffic than normal: between 2 and 4 pm daily, weekday nights, and all day long on the weekends.

If you are seriously looking for traffic to your website, then you should post during these times on a consistent basis.

You don’t need to spend hours pinning, but you should pin for at least a few minutes two or three times a day. This simple effort of pinning at opportune times will create an abundance of traffic and interest for your site.

Direct the Traffic

Always add your own web links in your descriptions. You should also source your image if it came from a website that does not belong to you.

Adding the web link to your sourced image is a great way to develop a good reputation on Pinterest. Adding as much description as you possibly can will increase the amount of traffic you generate.

Create Images That Pinterest Will Love

Make use of Pinstamatic, Canva and Pablo. These tools are free to use and offer up tons of Pinterest friendly pictures that you can use.

The nice thing about the images you can find is that you know they are going to look terrific on Pinterest.

Images really are everything on Pinterest: be sure what you add has appealing visual content.

Your captions should be rich with your business relevant keywords in order for Pinterest and other search engines to understand the purpose of your business.

Every piece of content on your site should be pinned onto your various Pinterest boards. Spread the content around, creating categories within your main topic.

Pinterest does not like users to pin only content from their own site onto their profile. Pinterest is all about sharing.

Pinning content from other users and websites is highly recommended on your boards as well as in your profile. The more you pin, the happier Pinterest is.

Understanding Group Boards

Group boards are hidden gems that many Pinterest users are unaware of. They are fantastic places to find tons of images to pin, and will definitely generate a lot of traffic and followers.

Using this simple tool will give you a jump on your competition.

Go to your search bar and type in a keyword that is relevant to your business, website or blog. Choose “Boards”.

Although Pinterest has yet to design a fast and easy way to find  group boards, you can browse through the search topic until you find them. Eventually you will run across a board displayed as “Group Board”.

Searching through this topic is also going to take you a while to find exactly what you are looking for, but you will normally find something you can relate to.

If all that sounds like a lot of work, don’t worry, there is a useful tool called PinGroupie that can do the searching for you.

There are filters you can use to help you find the top Pinterest groups within your specific niche. PinGroupie makes finding Groups so much easier than searching yourself.

How To Join Groups

There are two ways that you can join groups that interest you. You can look through member lists on group pages and see if anyone you know is a member.

If so, then you could ask them to invite you. If you don’t know anyone, then contact the site owner directly through whatever contact information is available.

Be polite and explain why you think you would be a good addition to the group.

Effectively Pinning Your Content

After joining a group you are free to promote your own business, boards and pins. Don’t overwhelm with your own pins!

Take time to get to know the other members, re-pinning some of their pins that interest you. This is a great way to develop some business connections that may pay off in the future. Do not try to rush the process on group boards.

It takes time to develop your reputation and find the respect you want. Once you become well-known and respected you will begin to see a sharp increase in the traffic on your blog or business website.

The time you put into making connections is well worth the traffic payoff.
