How do you get traffic from Pinterest to your website? The simple answer is you will need to prepare it, set it up, and manage it.
Why can’t you simply get traffic from Facebook (the most popular social network site) or Google (the mostly used search engine)? Because they are already saturated. If you can do it right, Pinterest can become one of the next best free traffic sites for your website or any site that you’re to build in the future.
To get you started, follow the steps below.
Sign up for a new Pinterest account. It’s free to register.
Create some new boards.
Add new pins (i.e. images) to your new boards. Make sure you choose good looking images that are attractive to other Pinterest users.
Set up Rich Pins for your blog or website.
Find group boards that are relevant to what you usually pin, and join them.
Remember to pin regularly.
What you can also do when you’re on Pinterest? You should grow your Pinterest followers. The first and easy step is to connect with your friends on Pinterest. The next action is to add a Pinterest button on your website or blog which allows other people to pin for you.
Another tip is to upgrade your Pinterest account to a business account. Still, it’s free to upgrade. Once you’ve a business account, you will be able to view your Pinterest’s performance reports.
Each image has some meaning behind it, and the meaning can be described by words or some phrases – Normally we call them “keywords”. When you post your images, make sure you also add keywords to the images. The keywords must appropriately and correctly reflect what the images are about. But how do you know what keywords to use?
You can use the keyword planner tool from Google Ads (former called Google AdWords) to find new keywords. Simply sign up for a free Google Ads account, and you will be able to access the keyword planner tool.
Another option is to use a free or paid third party keyword suggestion tool. Sometimes the paid tools give you more keywords that are highly relevant to your topics (or pins).
