How to Implement Pinterest SEO Using Viralwoot

Recently we discussed how Viralwoot’s Content Manager can help bring new life to old Pins, exposing a whole new audience to some great older content. At the same time, we saw how new Pinterest users with little content could also benefit from Viralwoot’s Drip Pinning capabilities. In this post, you’ll learn how Content Manager can be used to create boards, edit them, and edit pins. Plus, we’ll discuss how to manage a large number of boards using Viralwoot. This is particularly helpful if you need to make large-scale SEO changes.

Create Board

You can create your Pinterest boards right from within Viralwoot by clicking on Content Manager from the left sidebar and then clicking on Create Board. All the information that’s necessary for creating a board can be filled in on this one screen. Technically, Pinterest only requires a name for your board. However, it’s a good idea fill in a detailed description concerning the board, using keywords in a natural way where possible. Make sure you select a category that best describes the board as it is an important SEO factor in search results.

Manage Boards

In addition to creating Pinterest boards, Viralwoot also lets you manage them from within the platform. Click on Content Manager in the left sidebar, then click on Manage Boards. All the boards associated with the Pinterest account are presented in a list. Each entry consists of board name, category, privacy, description, and number of Pins. You can sort this list, either ascending or descending, using any of these criteria by pressing the arrow icon beside the column name.

You can search any information in this table by typing into the search bar above the list. Viralwoot automatically searches as you type, making it very convenient, especially for accounts with scores of boards.

Click on Content Manager, then Manage Pins and you’ll see a page full of Pins that you can edit. Each Pin entry shows the image and Pin description. Clicking on the image opens a new browser tab and brings you to the original image source.

In the list of Pins, that appears you can modify the information for each Pin individually. In cases where Pins share common data, you can save a tremendous amount of time by editing the first Pin and clicking the “Set this…  for all”. You can also apply the same URL link and Board name to the entire list.

Pinterest Tips

How to Create a Vibrant and Active Pinterest Presence

Pinterest Presence

Pinterest is a great social media platform that has attracted millions of users over the past few years. A lot of people use the platform to collect ideas for their birthdays, weddings, and vacations. Here are some tips that will help you in creating an active presence on Pinterest:

Get a “Follow” Button

In order to get more followers, you will have to get the Pinterest Follow button. The basic idea is to let people know that you exist on Pinterest so that they can visit your account to repin from your boards.

You can direct traffic from different social networking websites and increase your following on Pinterest. Also, this gives you an opportunity to gauge whether your audience on different platforms is keen on following you on Pinterest and get more related content.

Add Photos and “Pin it” Buttons

You need high-quality pictures to attract people on Pinterest. People are more likely to pin pictures that are interesting and clear. These statistics might help you out in putting up good pictures:

  • Images with varied colors get repinned 3.25 times more than images with a single dominant color.
  • Bright images are 20 times more likely to get pinned than dark images.
  • Saturated images get 10 times more repins compared to non-saturated ones.
  • Vertical images with 2:3 or 4:5 ratios get 60% more repins than square or horizontal images.
  • Images that have a smooth texture are 17 times more repinned than images that don’t have a smooth texture.

Check Out Famous Accounts

Look for people who have a lot of followers on Pinterest and see what they do. Go through their boards and get inspired from there. You would see that the  people with a lot of followers usually make their followers feel comfortable and welcomed and have a conversation with them in the comments section.

These sorts of observations can help you gauge your own approach towards your audience. Apart from that, observing the behaviors of influencers on Pinterest, you’d be able to know the things liked by a prospective audience. Mix your own content with it and see what suits your audiences.

Pin Frequently

This one is a more direct way to create a vibrant presence on Pinterest. You should pin often so that people can view your boards and pictures. Make sure your descriptions are SEO friendly because people who aren’t following you can view your pins and boards by simply typing the keyword.

Your Pins Should Be Interesting

It is recommended that you set a theme per board so that people can easily browse through it and get new ideas. Now the idea behind an interesting pin is to entice the user into liking, repinning or following the pin to its home page. That’s the entire concept of ‘Being interesting’.

To inspire interest, you’d need to ascertain the interests of your audience – what they like and what they covet. After you’ve done that, design your pins to align with those interests. Cross-mate different topics and create a unique conjunction of pins which your audience won’t find any place else.

Find Balance

While working on your business try and strike a balance between promoting your business and entertaining your guests. Always remember that moderation is key when posting pins. You don’t want to pin so less that people forget about you and you don’t want to pin so much that people get annoyed and unfollow you.

How to Get Popular on Pinterest

These tips will surely help you out to become popular on Pinterest. Just remember that frequent pinning and comments will mark your presence on this social media platform. If you want to opt for an easier way then try out ViralWoot, which is an excellent marketing tool that can get you followers, promote your pins, schedule pins, create pin alerts and manage multiple accounts.
