EXPLODE Your Blog Traffic with Pinterest

Hey hey loves I wanted to share a little tip for how I’ve always driven most of my blog traffic – and that is Pinterest! If you are not currently on Pinterest, you need to join like right now. It’s my top source for traffic to my blog and I find that it’s quite easy to use once you get a hang of it..

The main goal is to create attractive images that link to your blog post or website, you want to create an image that people will click on. I would also try to stick to a theme with your images, same text, same colors, etc..

Pin For Later!

So let’s dive right in!

Obviously first step is to create a Pinterest account. Once you’ve done that, you will want to set your profile up to match your website name, brand, and all that fun stuff.

Next step is to develop your content, so once you have a blog post that you wish to promote, head over to Canva to create your promotional image to use on Pinterest! I love Canva, it’s free and super easy to use. Here’s some examples of my blog images that I create for Pinterest..

I try to use same text font, colors, and always include my website link at the bottom! I can make a separate post breaking down Canva itself in the future if you’d like! Let me know in the comments.

Now the next step is really the most important of all to drive the traffic. That is joining Group Boards! Group Boards are created by other people that invite bloggers in to share their Pins, and that way you grow your outreach & audience! Each Group Board has their own rules of joining, and what to post, what not to post, etc.. Here’s a few of my fav Group Boards below you should join!

Best Blog Posts on Pinterest

BloggerSquad

Bloggers Post Here!

That’s just a few of my favs! If you want to get the rest of the Group Boards I highly recommend, sign up here for a free download!

And there you have it! Once you’ve joined the Group Boards, I’d recommend at least 3 times a day to go in and pin your own content onto the Boards, while sharing and re-pinning others’ as well! Over time, you will see traffic driving to your blog by doing this.

This is quite a simple version of how to use Pinterest for blog traffic, you can go into more detail and join third party platforms that will automatically pin your content for you, like TailWind, but I’ll save that for another post. 😉

Are you currently on Pinterest already? If so, have you noticed blog traffic from using Pinterest? Let me know in the comments below!

    I’ve only just started using Pinterest properly so I’m still trying to make it routine to post often but I’m already seeing a little more traffic coming from there so it’s nice to know it’s working x

    It’s proven to be a useful tool indeed. I especially like the fact you can schedule pins inside Pinterest if you prefer to keep everything “under one roof’ as opposed to using an outside scheduler…
