7 Foolproof Ways to Get More Re-pins on Pinterest (Even as a Beginner!)

  One of my favorite things about Pinterest is that it’s a platform based on sharing. You design a gorgeous pin, share it to a few group boards, and BOOM. Your pin gets re-pinned by hundreds, thousands, MILLIONS of people (said in my best Dr. Evil voice).   But wait a minute, hold up there.

Keywords on Pinterest: How to Find Them & 6 Places to Put Them

Pinterest is a super fun social media platform, isn’t it? I swear I could spend HOURS pinning away every single day if time and circumstances allowed. However, there’s one thing about Pinterest that most bloggers tend to forget (one SUPER IMPORTANT thing, might I add!)   Pinterest is also a search engine.   In fact, it’s moreso a search engine than a social media platform these days.

Boost Your Traffic With These Six Tips for Speedy Pinning

  75% of my blog traffic each and every month comes from Pinterest.   I repeat: 3/4 of my traffic each and every month is all. from. Pinterest!   And the very best part?
