Pinterest and blogging may seem like they are unrelated but bloggers can boost their website traffic and build their readership by using Pinterest. Think of as the frosting and sprinkles on your cupcake of web traffic, it seems like pretty eye candy but also adds a lot of flavor and interest! With a few smart steps each time you publish a blog post, you can bring traffic to your website from Pinterest.
Working with these easy to follow tips, you’ll start getting traffic from Pinterest right away and posts have a very long life on Pinterest. Pinterest is the #1 traffic referral to my blog in 2014 so far. These tips really work!
Create a separate, pinnable image for your blog post
The number one mistake that blogs are making today is not having a pinnable image on each blog post! Size matters! Even if you’re not a graphic designer or have Photoshop, you can make fantastic images that will help your blog posts be seen on Pinterest. recently launched some Pinterest templates that are really easy to use. Long, tall images command Pinterest taking up the most visual real estate in the Pinterest feed. Create images that are 735 pixels x 1102 pixels for maximum appeal and repins. I also use Canva's 800 x 1200 templates for Pinterest and Google+ images.
A great tip from power pinner , update old posts without pinnable images. Create new images, add to the blog post then share them on Pinterest. You can even get fancy and add the embedded pin at the bottom of the post.
