There are a few things you may be doing on Pinterest that seem like they’re helping, but might actually be sabotaging your reach.
In this episode we’re going to go over 3 things you might be doing that could affect how your Pins are distributed to other Pinterest users.
Stay turned for tomorrow where we’ll talk about 3 more common mistakes people make on Pinterest.
Read It: Things you should NOT do on Pinterest
This is Graphics for Traffic in 60 Seconds with 3 things to avoid that might hurt your reach on Pinterest.
1. Repinning from yourself
Do NOT use the Save button to repin from your own pins that are already on Pinterest. Pinterest sees this as false engagement and you may be marked as spamming.
Always create new pins through the Pinterest website, direct from your own website, or through a scheduler.
A single repin here or there is fine but your traffic strategy shouldn’t be built around saving your own Pins to boost engagement.
2. Adding the same pin to you boards too quickly
You should be adding your pins to all relevant boards, but space out so they’re not all pinned in the same day.
I like to leave 2-3 days in between pinning to different boards so I can promote that link over at least a couple months.
Re-saving a pin to a board its been added to before is okay if it’s done sparingly, but creating a brand new image will get you the best results.
3. Pinning things that aren’t related to your niche
Don’t mix personal saves in with your business stuff.
If you attract followers who like food pins but you actually write about cycling, your audience won’t be aligned with the content that you actually want them to pay attention to.
With the way the Pinterest algorithm works, those people following you for food pins probably won’t even see your cycling content unless they’re already searching for or saving similar pins.0
