Most Popular Pinterest Boards
If you want to get large amounts of free traffic from pinterest then it helps to have the most popular pinterest boards, as it is these ones that thousands of people follow and hence when you can have a new image, and pin it then thousands of people can visit your website to find out more information.
But what how do you go about making yours one of the Most Popular Pinterest Boards? Well the key to it is to ideally pick a hot ongoing niche such as Kate Middleton, as an example and ensuring that you pin highly relevant images regularly but not so much that people think of you as a picture spammer, this is also important to make sure that you do not get banned from pinterest due to spam. Stick to pinning very high quality images around three times a day. I suggest doing this in your morning coffee break, lunchtime and afternoon coffee break, although there is a traffic benefit to be had from posting in the 6-7 PM window.
It’s not just about finding a hot topic to create a pin board about although that obviously helps in terms of people seeking images of that topic but it is more important that the images are highly relevant, and have that ah! moment captured in them e.g. images of Kate Middleton in a nice coat are okay, but images of Kate laughing or horse riding will capture the imagination far more. It is also key that they’re not all from your own website and you need a mix if other websites images as well as your own.
Indeed the better your image is the more it will be repined. Lastly if you have a good pin board then don’t be afraid to write to key Pinterest bloggers and ask them to include your pin board on their “Top Pin Board Lists”.
