The thing is he has a website, but it’s almost non-existent in search as in I couldn’t find it in the first 10 pages of Google. Predominantly because it was built & left online. Its not updated regularly! His social presence is: a Facebook account which he uses to spy on his meager staff, (by his own admission.) A Pinterest account with “3 Followers” and he uses Twitter to follow Footie…

Did you know that having a strong social presence connected to your website signifies to Google that you’re a trusted source of information? This will improve your Search Engine Clout too!

Pinterest categories in my opinion are an essential research tool when it comes to promoting your boards. Esp. during the board creation process. Do select which Pinterest category your board will belong, then create a Keyword-rich board Title & Description.

When you do this, content pinned to your board has half a chance of showing up on those category pages in the Smart feed.

Meaning more eyeballs, more shares by anyone not necessarily just your followers. In fact you will get more followers if your content keeps popping up in the smart feed with lots of value & shares!

One of the most essential thing you can do to optimize your Pinterest efforts is to TRACK your Actions and results. You need to understand what resonates with your audience. In my opinion it’s the use of resources like Tailwind’s Pinterest Analytics Suite, that you can tell which pins/offers/posts are trending.

Find which words are used most often in descriptions and how many pins with such words do you have pinned from your site? The key here is to make your pins, boards, and profile show up in Pinterest and Google searches!

By paying attention to what your audience, followers and fans love, you can build related content to drive more targeted traffic to your website/blog/affiliate links!

Pinterest SEO Quick Recap:

  • Create Amazing LONG IMAGES and Optimize These Pins Like Heck 734 x 1200 is great. Make em Keyword-rich Descriptions, and Add them to at least 3 images all pointing to your Post! And by the way don’t overburden your PC with huge images, Save your precious Pinterest Horde For Free in DropBox, and you can access them anywhere! 
  • If you pin your posts only once, you may as well not have bothered! Pin them to your different boards over and over! Using the tools I shared! Join and Pin them to group boards. Join  and Be active in Social share Groups. This will give you the initial push your content marketing needs to ensure your content gets pinned & seen by other people. 
  • Pinterest is a VISUAL SEARCH ENGINE. So Pinterest SEO makes total sense, and everything that gets seen on there is based on being  keyword-rich. Think about it. The people that use Pinterest daily and there are millions, use it instead of Google? They use the search function in Pinterest almost daily! Can you afford to ignore it any more?
