Welcome to the June Pinterest Round-up. I hope you are all enjoying the warmer weather and lighter evenings!
The last two months we have looked at how to get started with Pinterest and how to make the perfect vertical pin. This month I am going to look at how to drive traffic through Pinterest.
When I first started out blogging, I heard a lot of bloggers talk about how they used Pinterest to drive traffic. I was keen to find out more and slowly I have been able to see my Pinterest traffic increase. Hopefully, some of these posts will help you do the same.
Boost your traffic with Pinterest
A good place to start is a great article from ?me & b make tea?. I am a huge fan of making life easy and this blog post will provide you with ten ways to increase your Pinterest traffic. The most important thing to take from this article is definitely number 1, get organised! I recently went through my entire Pinterest account, board by board and it did make a massive difference. You can find the post here: The top 10 things I did to grow my Pinterest traffic.
The lovely Kimberley from Odd Hog has also created a great article to get you on the road to great traffic. Her post not only gives pointers on what to do, but she shares the results from using these tactics on her own account. As they say: the proof is in the pudding! You can find the post here: How I increased my Pinterest reach by 644% in just 3 months.
Lastly, Babyfoote has a great round-up on what you need to consider with your Pinterest account. There are lots of easy to follow tips, including how to use alt text to your advantage ? a total game changer for me! You can see the post here: How to get the most from Pinterest. You will notice that this article mentions the famous Rich Pin. If you are not sure what this is, please check out July?s round-up post to find out more!
