5 Tips to Get Traffic From Pinterest

Five useful tips to get traffic from Pinterest.


1. Pin an original post during peak hours

Researches show most people are on Pinterest in the afternoon hours of 14:00 – 16:00 EST and around 20:00 – 01:00 EST in the evening. One must aim to schedule the content during those peak times, which is easier with publishing tools. Studies show that repining what every else writes would get you no publicity – infact people would start shunning posts from then on.

Therefore, it is important to create a visual yet valuable original content which would not only increase your number of readers but most people would want to circulate pins which are creative and original thus making your page gain more exposure. The number of pins should also be limited to however much is necessary – too many and too less, both would prove troublesome.

2. Focus on popular issues

A highly underutilized technique is to incorporate trending topics into one’s titles or as keywords within the content or captions. It is vital to incorporate current affairs and popular issues concerning the world at large – as this would attract more people from different walks of life.


3. Use humorous and catchy titles

Writing something that eye-catching and humorous is always the safe way to go about things. This way, you not only attract more writers but also develop a platform for people to turn to when in dire need of subtlety in writing.


4. Include interesting videos and images on your post

Our posts must not only be descriptive in terms of its content but must also convey its message through interesting images. This would catch the eye of a random browser who might find it interesting. These images could be cartoon sketches or satirical images on current affairs. The idea is to attract more and more people to see your unusual manner of approaching a post in Pinterest. This becomes quite a challenge due to the large number of people in social networking websites today. Therefore, one must keep the post simple yet different from others.

5. Using unique labels and titles for each image or video

Apart from the inclusion of interesting images and videos in a post, it is important to put unique labels for each. Since the labels would be highlighted and italicized in a post, it catches the attention of any reader right at the beginning. The labels also give an overview of the vital points explored in the post, therefore it is important to make them interesting – to attract more and more readers.

  2. Hi Bashir,

    Am using pinterest to share my post. I got useful information from your post. you said that, most people are on Pinterest in the afternoon hours of 14:00 – 16:00 EST and around 20:00 – 01:00 EST in the evening.

    Helpful info for me. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Hi Bashir,

    Informative post indeed 🙂

    Yes, Pinterest is very addictive – once you get onto it, it’s tough to get away from it. I remember the time when it had started and how I used to spend hours discovering new things, making friends, and pinning images, which I simply love.

    Your five tips are absolutely apt, and the time is the most important factor I think out of it all. If your timing is not right, you will get very few pinnable images. I’ve tried that out myself too. Also, it’s advisable I think to pin anything between 5-10 images, less would be less and more might become too much, though all these things hardly matter as I keep trying various things and they all work as a lot depends on what you are pinning.

    Adding the appropriate tags to your posts makes their reach much more and you are able to share them with a larger audience. Another thing, as a return gesture, it’s good to pin posts of those people also who pin yours – so that they keep pinning yours and vice-versa, this most people forget. It’s just like sharing is caring on Facebook, and I do a lot of that too.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend, and Happy Friendship Day to you and your team members too 🙂

  6. Waooo! Thank you Mr Ahmed, i use pinterest alot but if not for your insightful post here i wouldn’t have known the rudiments of getting traffic from pinterest. And i believe others who doesn’t use it before will start using it now.

    • You’re welcome. Yourblogcoach is your name? I don’t think so, it’s your blog name so please don’t use it here in name field. Use your own reall name and photo. Sorry I’m bit rude here but next time I’ll not approve your comment with your keyword.

  7. Bashir, thanks for these tips. Pinterest is one of those tools that are underutilized in driving traffic to our blogs. Initially it was regarded as a “women site”, but these days, it has turned out to be a great site that every blogger needs to make use of in order to gain more traffic.

    Following your tips is a good way to get more pins for our posts and drive huge traffic to our sites.
