Read It: 3 common Pinterest marketing mistakes

First up is follower hoarding.

This is when you try to collect as many followers as possible, regardless of their interests.

Having the right followers is so important because Pinterest uses them to judge if your content is worth recommending to users who aren’t following you.

Focus on quality over quantity when it comes to followers.

2. Paying too much attention to Monthly Viewers

The next mistake is gauging success by Monthly Viewers

Monthly viewers counts anyone who simply loads any pin you share, even if they just scroll past it. This includes pins from other websites.

Because of this, it’s not a good indicator of how well your site is performing. Instead, pay attention to your domain analytics.

3. Not pinning enough of your own content

Finally, lots of Pinterest users mess up by not sharing enough of their own content

Sharing content from others can help build your account, but Pinterest wants to see you sharing pins from your verified website, too.

It shows that your website is active and how your followers react to it helps Pinterest understand the value of your content.
