It is not a secret that many companies and online stores are successfully using Pinterest, the content sharing service, for promotional purposes. Last year, Pinterest was a big player in SMM (social media marketing). And internet gurus are predicting that it is going to play a huge role in search marketing in 2013.
Pinterest became the 3rd most visited social media website in March 2012, with more than 104 million visitors, falling behind only FB (7 billion visits) and Twitter (182 million visits). This makes it one of the best places on the internet to raise brand awareness and increase sales by driving traffic back to your site. So here are a few things that you can do to boost your SEO using Pinterest.
Complete the About section
You can use up to 200 characters, to give a nice description of your company or the business, in the “About” section of your profile. Apart from giving a nice first impression to your prospective customers, the “About” section can also help boost your SEO. Remember to use keyword-rich text when filling up this section, which will make it easy for the search engines to discover and display your profile, pins, and boards for the relevant search queries Stardew Valley Farm Names.
Make the most of the SEO hotspots
Similar to your Google+ account, your Pinterest profile also contains some areas which are scanned by search engine bots. Optimizing these areas will make your profile more visible to search engines. When using Pinterest, remember to fill out the SEO title of your profile and to name every one of your boards that show up on your profile. Also, remember to use keyword-rich text when filling these areas.

Create multiple boards
When you create more boards on your profile, which cover many different subjects and use strong keywords for their titles, you will have more chances of getting noticed and ranked by the search engine spiders. Using keyword-rich titles for your boards is essential for SEO success. So if you have any board titles that do not contain keywords, edit them as soon as you can.
Rename your files and throw in a few keywords
Every camera just uses a randomly generated file name when you capture a photo. And if you just upload them with those file names, you will not get any SEO value for your images. Go ahead and rename them using your keywords and watch them turn into search engine spider magnets. You can use your brand name and a small description (3-4 words) about what is in the picture as the file name. If it is a product, use the product name and details, such as its model, for the file name.
Diversify your sources
You can easily find thousands of pictures and content to pin within Pinterest. However, repining what has already been pinned by other pages will not be as effective as pinning original content. Use images, and fresh and unique content, from outside the content-sharing social network as they can play a big role in building your SEO.
