Pinterest is the hottest new marketing trend right now. People are categorizing it wrong though, Pinterest isn’t a social media platform, it’s a search engine. Once you realize that it’s just a search engine, you won’t be questioning whether or not you should be on there, you’ll be wondering how’s the best way to do it for the best SEO? Here are a couple strategies to help you make the best of Pinterest.

  • Enable rich pins. A rich pin just means it includes more information on the actual pin. So the more information on the frontend will likely cause more people to check it out.
  • Optimize the pin description. Just as you would for Google, use descriptive keywords, that people will search.
  • Optimize your boards. Make sure you keep you Pinterest clean and clutter-free, create highly categorized boards and use keywords in the description of the boards.
  • Pinterest ads. A good way for your pin to be seen is to run ads, if Pinterest isn’t in your marketing budget, I would suggest it.

Pinterest could potentially have a high ROI, if you put in the time to learn it. It isn’t hard to learn and if you implement these strategies, you’ll be sure to get great marketing in.
