Pinterest SEO is an important part of getting your Pins found on Pinterest. Without it, you could add Pins all day, every day and never see any results.

Yikes!

However, when people see the letters S-E-O, they mistakenly think it’s a difficult process just like it is on other platforms.

Pinterest SEO is actually pretty easy once you know what to do, and this episode will explain the basics.

Pinterest SEO is essential to skyrocketing your success and I’m going to tell you how to start using it in this episode of Graphics for Traffic in 60 Seconds.

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. This helps your content show up more often and higher up in search results.

You may have heard of this on other search-based platforms like Google or Etsy.

Since Pinterest is a search engine, it uses SEO too.

Pinterest SEO is heavily keyword based, so you need to use relevant keywords in every place you can; board names and descriptions, Rich Pin information, and Pin descriptions.

It’s important to use your keywords naturally within actual sentences. Don’t keyword stuff, which is just writing all your keywords in a list.

Pinterest gives you 500 characters for descriptions, so there’s plenty of room to write sentence-based descriptions.

If you’d like my personal method for quick and easy description writing visit graphicsfortraffic.com/courses for more info.

One last thing. I mentioned before that you should use keywords in your board names. This is also good Pinterest SEO.

The boards you add your Pins to help Pinterest understand what they’re about, so it’s important to have boards with keyword-rich names and descriptions.
