Hey! If you are new here, welcome to the blog! If not, glad to have you back!
So, in today’s blog post, I am going to be discussing the #1 Pinterest SEO Strategy! This strategy is what led to this pin (pictured below) going viral and achieving (at the time of writing this) 42,000 impressions, 594 saves and 546 link clicks!
You may be thinking that it was the Pinterest graphic that led to such results, but I purposely made this graphic very dull and basic, so I could test the effectiveness of something else! and that is pin description keywords!
If you are new to Pinterest, then you may be surprised to know that Pinterest is a search engine and not a social network, and that means that your choice of words on Pinterest, goes a long way!
To make this more understandable for you, I am going to show you the EXACT pin description that I used for this pin, so you can see how I structured it and how I was able to include a lot of keywords.
Read the pin description below:
“ You've heard stories but have you gotten results? I have the "recipes" that you need to succeed with Pinterest, make money with social media and transform your online business. Do you dream of becoming a successful entrepreneur? Well, if you follow these tips, you are going to get brilliant success with Pinterest and be well on your way to changing your life! So, that's the motivation, now click to find out how! “
That is the EXACT pin description that I used to make this simple Pinterest pin go viral! As you can see, i used up all the pin description characters that I am limited to and I structured the text well so the keywords are not just listed off in the description.
*A little SEO tip! It is better to incorporate your keywords into actual content rather than listing them. It always work better for search engines when they crawl through the posts and web pages!
Now, let’s see that pin description again shall we, but this time, with all the keywords highlighted in bold and capitalised!
“ You've heard stories but have you gotten results? I have the "RECIPES" that you need to SUCCEED WITH PINTEREST, MAKE MONEY with SOCIAL MEDIA and transform your ONLINE BUSINESS. Do you dream of becoming a SUCCESSFUL ENTREPRENEUR? Well, if you follow these TIPS, you are going to get brilliant SUCCESS WITH PINTEREST and be well on your way to CHANGING YOUR LIFE! So, that's the MOTIVATION, now click to find out how! “
There is over 10 keywords in that pin description! That means my pin has the opportunity to rank in the top performing content for over 10 searches. And often, it leads to more because the algorithm finds more keywords in the description!
Now, do you see how important pin descriptions are? and more specifically filling your pin descriptions with highly targeted keywords.
Just to top it all off and give you some added help, I am going to show you how to find your own highly targeted keywords and add them to your pin descriptions, so you can go ahead and get your Pinterest SEO on point!
