Most people don’t bother with Pinterest and most don’t know how to optimize it.

Good news for you, we got you covered on that one.

To make Pinterest work for you and your business, you need to optimize your Pinterest profile with the most relevant keywords for your business.

How to do that?

Pinterest Search box

 

For starters, utlize the search box. Type the most relevant “seed” keyword for your brand or product. When you do that, Pinterest will autolist (just like with Google Search) it with an assortment of long-tail keywords related to that keyword.

To get targetted visitors for your pins and boards, it is best to use long-tail keywords.

The more targetted the visitor, the better.

Now, you ask..

Where are you going to use these long-tail keywords on your Pinterest account?

ON YOUR PINTEREST PROFILE AND BIOPinterest Bio and Profile

You can add keywords on your Pinterest name so visitors can identify instantly on what you do.

Also, adding keywords (seed keywords or long tail keywords) in your Bio area will optimize your account for that topic.

ON YOUR PINTEREST BOARDS

Pinterest Boards

Naming your Pinterest boards with your keywords will enable it to have more visibility in Pinterest search.

You want that, right?

Brands are okay, if and only if, these brands are well-known.

Another “secret” optimization strategy is to use your keywords in your Pinterest board descriptions.

A lot are not using this simple ‘trick’.

You can create a little story for your Pinterest board to a maximum of 500 characters. Make this description work for you!

ON YOUR PINTEREST PIN DESCRIPTIONS

Pinterest Pin description

Take advatange of the 50-character allowance for the pin description.

Make it compelling, use call to action words. Invite your visitor to visit your site or message you directly.

Of course, usng keywords (seed keywords and long-tail keywords) would further boost the relevancy of your pin.

ON YOUR PINTEREST PIN IMAGE FILE NAME

Just with SEO for search engines, naming your pins to something descriptive, relevant, and keyword optimized will help the pin become more visible to searchers.

Instead of the generic image file name 14578.jpg, name it to something like handmade-bag.jpg.

With the above pointers, this would really optimize your Pinterest Profile to be more visible in Pinterest search as well as Search Engines.

When you are starting to blog, it is important that you never give up. On your first day as a blogger, you are not going to get a lot of readers, and that is fine.

Little by little readers will find out about your blog, just continue to write ideas and stories you are passionate about.

Easy Tips To Improve Your Blog Post Image

Try making a blogging set-up. You’re not just going to be writing; you must also create goals, strategies, and evaluations.

You must create a place where you may focus on your main goal. Try to pick your particular type of set-up, such as pen and paper to start making a plan for the success of your blog.

In making your blog article, it is important to make this more easy to digest. You can organize the article into different headings and, if needed, subheadings.

When you incorporate social media sharing widgets, it would be open up opportunities for your readers, family, and friends to share your articles with others, ensuring more blog visitors.

I suggest that you use a WordPress theme that different from the default configuration. Make your blog stand out by making them unique. Decide what color themes are you going to use and make them part of your posts. Make your blog more appealing visually.

Now that your blog is easy on the eyes, you need to have to know more about the topics you are sharing through your blog articles.

People are always looking for information, and the more people see that you are an expert in your topic, the more they will visit your blog and share this information with others.

It would be wise to perform research from time to time and to read current events on the topic you’ll be focusing. This enables you to create blog topics more easily and has a more engaging interaction when your readers leave a blog comment.

Going back to visual appeal, take advantage of the white space. White space will enable users to ‘rest’ his/her eyes and will make the content easier to understand.

When readers encounter a wall of text, the first instinct is to skip the section or leave the blog, altogether.

As was discussed earlier, bloggers are everywhere. There are lots of reasons to develop a blog. Everybody can have their own interpretation of information, and the more people are out there and making things easier to understand, the better.

It is my hope you can use the pointers above to have a more compelling message and be able to present this better to your blog readers.
