Pinterest Tips to Increase Blog Traffic

As beginner bloggers, we are so unsure of what Pinterest strategy we need to implement to grow our blog traffic so I’m here to share with you the very best Pinterest tips.

Increasing our blog traffic honestly seems like a mystery to us at the beginning of our blogging journey.

Well today, I’m here to share with you the Pinterest strategy that has allowed me to increase my blog traffic by a TON and I hope these Pinterest tips will help you to increase your blog traffic as well.

Pinterest tips That Increased My Blog Traffic 

Pinterest Content calendar

Creating a Pinterest content calendar was the best thing I could have done for my blog. 

When I first started blogging, I was always hearing the words “manually pin” to increase blog traffic. In the blog posts I read, they told me the strategies and how to do this but I never fully understood how it worked until I mapped it out in Trello. 

I use Trello for my Pinterest content calendar and I love it. It makes my Pinterest strategy flow well and it is easy to understand.

The Pinterest Strategy-Step by step

The Trello board lays almost the whole Pinterest strategy out for you but it leaves out a few details. Here is the Pinterest strategy step-by-step so you can understand it fully. 

  1. Create your pins using Canva. Then download it as a PNG file. You will want to create and schedule 3 NEW pins every day directly to Pinterest.
  2. Put your pin in the “Scheduled to Pinterest” card on Trello.
  3. Upload the pin to Pinterest to the most relevant board and use keywords in your title and description. If you don’t know how to find keywords for Pinterest, head over to my Instagram, and find the swipe through the post. 
  4. When the pin gets scheduled out, wait for it to publish. When the pin is published, then you can schedule to all of the other relevant boards using Tailwind. 
  5. Add your pin to Tailwind Tribes. (Upgrading is worth it, trust me)
  6. Never schedule your pin again to the same boards until 3 to 6 months later! Pinterest doesn’t like old pins being scheduled out often.

This is the exact Pinterest strategy that I have been using to grow my blog traffic to thousands of page views per month. This is my manual pinning secret….shhhh. 

Other Important Pinterest Tips 

Create clickable worthy pins

Listen up, I’m a blog coach and I will be blunt with you because I want the best for you and your blog….

If you are creating ugly pins, I’m sorry but no one will want to click them. 

If you are also writing content no one wants to read, your pins won’t be clicked on as well. 

So please take my advice and focus on creating clickable worthy pins and write valuable content that people will want to read. 

Even with all of these amazing Pinterest tips and secrets blogger’s are giving you, if you aren’t implementing clickable worthy pins and valuable content for your readers, then your pins will still never be clicked on. 

So how do we create clickable worthy pins?

1- Testing out your pins. 

Publish a few pins that are designed the same way and if it does good (not just views but clicks and saves too), create more of that pin design. If it does bad, scratch it. 

2- Branding, bright images, readable fonts.

You need to be creating pins that catch people’s eyes. If you scroll on Pinterest fast, would you be more likely to click a dark-colored ugly pin that is barely readable? Or would you be more likely to click on a pin if it had bright, beautiful images with bright colors and fonts that you could read?

I know you’re reading this and saying to yourself “come on, Gen, this is a no-brainer.” 

Well I see this on Pinterest A LOT and I know you do too. 

So to sum it up… Clickable worthy pins, good content. Simple.

Create and Schedule New Pins to Pinterest every day

The new Pinterest algorithm loves NEW and fresh pins and you need to be scheduling 20-25 pins per day.

I know, you’re a new blogger and you’re probably extremely confused about how to do this. 

This is why you have to create several different boards related to your niche. 

Pinterest does love new pins every day but lets me blow your mind for a second.

When you schedule the pin that you have created directly to Pinterest to the most relevant board, then you will schedule your pin to ALL of the other boards in 1-5 day intervals. 

So as an example:

I have like 7 boards currently for blogging. So my pin gets scheduled to the most relevant board, then it will get scheduled to all of the other boards in 1-5 day intervals using Tailwinds interval tool. This means, that 1 pin that I have created will create 6 more days of a pin. 

Pinterest loves new pins that are scheduled for NEW boards. 

Never schedule the same pin to the same board.

If this all seems a little confusing to you, don’t worry. I have a 3 day video series that will show you exactly how to do this! Join by clicking below!

Pinterest Monthly Viewers Meaning 

A lot of new bloggers have no idea what “monthly viewers” mean on Pinterest. 

Pinterest monthly viewers mean… that’s how many people have seen your pins in one month.

This does not mean that that is how many times your pin has been clicked on. This is where people get confused. 

You may get excited when you see thousands of monthly viewers but how are the link clicks and saves doing? 

You see, although it is good to have a decent amount of monthly viewers, it doesn’t matter too much when no one is clicking or saving your pin. 

Your ultimate goal is to have people click your pin to read your post, right?

SO pay attention more to the link clicks and saves because this is the only important thing.

Study Your Pinterest Analytics 

Please don’t ever obsess over your Pinterest analytics. 

I remember when I was new to blogging, I developed a very unhealthy Pinterest analytics obsession and this just wasn’t good for me at all. 

I now practice a good habit of only checking it every 2 weeks briefly and then I do an in-depth overview of my Pinterest and Google Analytics. 

Study this every 2 weeks to a month because you want to see if your pins do good or if they are doing bad.

You want to always try and re-create the pins that do good but always with different images, different descriptions and blog post titles, etc. 

Also, remember that everything takes time, especially Pinterest. Stay consistent for 6 months to see how it’s working for you.
