I’ll also share a bit about your blog, testimony and mission online if you would like! Applicable to both contributors and non-contributors.

Now, without further delay… one of my top blogging tips!
I’ve heard it said before that Pinterest is not a social platform, but a search engine. I’ve come to believe it’s true, as I’ve used Pinterest countless times to research different topics, whether they be recipes, beauty tutorials, christian blogs, etc. But I also know it to be true because I get the majority of my traffic from Pinterest, and being strategic with keywords has helped immensely.
If you would like to increase the amount of visitors you get to your profile and blog, you need to make sure this one simple keyword trick is used on every one of your pins.
Take note of this example 👇🏼
In the pin description, I’ve not only included the name of the pin, but afterward, a series of keywords relating to it and other BT content. This means that whenever anyone searches something related to my pins, I have a great chance of popping up.
These description areas are what Pinterest uses to find pins for a pin searcher.
If you have pins with blank descriptions or you’ve written something unrelated to it there, you’ve got a dead pin that will never be found. Depending on how many pins you have, this could be a big project (it was for me!), but totally worth it. I immediately noticed a several thousand visitor difference to my Pinterest profile, and it keeps growing the more I post new pins.
This, bar-none, is one of my best tips. So if you decide to do this, let me know how it works for you!
