1. Get ready for it

To begin with, you need to naturally integrate Pinterest’s “Pin It” button in your blog. However, it is important you organize Pinterest also from an editorial standpoint: as Pinterest is largely image-driven and you should also make sure every post you write have to possesses a nice picture. It does not necessarily have to be 100% descriptive in the post content; it can be also a drawing, an excellent picture of the author or even a somewhat related cartoon. What can be important can be so it really should be nice: this makes your posting much better to Pin as well as also help it become have more attention from Pinterest’s users.

2. Reply and get connected to commenters

After your contents start getting “pinned” you must naturally reply to user comments, not only with your blog but also within Pinterest: just treat them as they were on your blog. However, apart from answering questions and replying to comments, it’s also sensible to look at your commenter’s Pinboards and discuss their pins. The more engaged the users will probably be with you, the greater they are with your blog… and the more they may pin it.

3. Communicate

Commenting on other user’s Pins is just the beginning of interaction. In order to have that you’re seen and noticed, it is important moreover, you may actively follow to investigate other user’s board and pins. Interacting can be of time taking process, when you get, follow and befriend the best users whose interests are usually in line using the content of your own blog then you can easily turn them in “evangelists” because of it: assisting you spreading your opinions and – of course – you too.

4. be your very own supporter

Nobody is pinning your posts? Don’t worry! As a member of the group that you are of naturally permitted to pin on your own posts by default, such that just don’t be exaggerate. Keep on mixing your own personal at ease with other great on-topic sources. Nobody are going to be aware you’re the author of a number of the posts you ping, which co-citation could make people associate your posts and blog along with other authoritative and high-quality resources which you pin

5. Make sure to be specific and usage of #keywords.

What makes a user to look out your pin? That’s what we require to know every time we write a description for a new pin. Well just think about the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) — the more detail description your pin had, the more and easier to get ranked in Google and can be found to the users/visitors. As explained above usage of multiple keywords (hash tags) can be able to make your pin go higher. One of best example, is adding related tags like if your article is on Android then have tags like “#android, #ice-cream sandwich, #apps, #android rooting” in the end of your pin. Such that it gets easier to find even through tags. Make sure never use more than 4-5 keywords, as the many tags make it looks like spam.
