Using Pinterest To Explode Your Blog Traffic

Using Pinterest as a blogger

When I first began blogging, I had no idea how important having a Pinterest for my blog was. As I started to learn how to gain traffic to my blog, Pinterest was always recommended. Most of my traffic comes from Pinterest and I’ve learned many things along the way that I’m sure can help other people as well.

After You Create Your Pinterest Business Page

There are many things to do next. First, go to your settings and enter something in the ‘about you’ section. However, don’t just write anything. Use keywords. Tell people what your blog is about. For example, mine says “money saving tips, health & fitness, and bible study tools”. If someone typed ‘money saving tips’ into the search bar, there’s a chance my profile may pop up.

(Don’t forget to claim your website on Pinterest.)

Next, add a nice picture of yourself or your logo. This will promote more people to follow you.

What is your blog niche about? Create Pinterest boards around these subjects and begin to pin other bloggers’ pins to them. By beginning to pin content like your own, you’ll attract your target audience to follow your page. Once you start pinning your own creations, these people will be more likely to click onto your website. Read more

What is a domain authority?

Domain authority is how well you rank on common search engines, like Google. When you type something into Google’s search bar, it pulls up websites it believes will answer your search. High ranking websites will appear first. Low ranking websites usually get buried in the never ending pages of Google.

You certainly don’t want to remain a low ranking website if you plan on being successful in blogging.

How do I check what my domain authority is?

There’s a website that allows you to check what your current domain authority is. Here’s the link to it: (https://smallseotools.com/domain-authority-checker). Once you get there, copy and paste your homepage URL and click ‘Check Authority’. Read more

1. Use consistent picture sizes.

I so wish someone would’ve told me this when I first started. I had three different sized images on my home page. Talk about embarrassing! Now, I use 800 x 500 photos for my featured images and any horizontal photos. I use 600 x 900 for vertical images and my Pinterest pins. You can use those sizes if you want, as long as they are always the same size.

The way I do this is with Canva. If you head over to Canva.com, you can click on custom dimension in the top right corner.
