Pinterest Offers SEO Benefits



What is Pinterest? Many individuals have not heard of this two- year old social bookmarking site
and they are missing out on how Pinterest can benefit their business. The concept of Pinterest is
relatively simple. Each user is able to create an online bulletin board, referred to as "pinboards".
Users then collect and share items that they find on the web that they like. These items are then
put into various categories. These categories include just about anything from food, interior
design, wedding inspiration, and tech gadgets. There are categories for just about anything
imaginable. As this site gains traction and becomes more popular, how does this affect
businesses?

The items that are shared on Pinterest drive traffic to where those images originated. For example,
if Sue really likes a specific cake topper for a wedding cake, she will post that image on her
"pinboard". Her friend Jane happens to be getting married within the next year and she stumbles
upon the wedding cake topper that Sue posted. She clicks on this and it takes her to where she
can purchase the item. Therefore, Pinterest provides virtually free advertising for businesses and
increases a businesses natural circle of influence many times over. How else can Pinterest benefit
your SEO and work for your business?

Pin It Buttons: Pin It buttons are one of two widgets offered by Pinterest. You embed this widget
into your web content. Your website viewers can then click on your Pin It widget and post your
information on their "pinboard". This is great word of mouth advertising. The other widget is a
"Follow me on Pinterest" button. This widget allows you to send your collections on your
"pinboard" to others.

Backlink Building: Due to the size of Pinterest, it is indexed on a constant basis by search engines.
This means that the more items that are posted on peoples boards that link back to your website,
the more traffic your site will receive.

Branding: Business should create a Pinterest accounts for their specific brands. Use all of the
images that are associated with your brand, such as your logo and profile pictures. When you are
done adding images that are associated with your brand, you have virtually created a catalogue
that can be shared.

Keyword Strategy: Google indexes individual boards on Pinterest. This makes the copy you use
on your "pinboard" extremely important. Use the same keyword strategy you would use in your
other efforts with Pinterest.

Pinterest has become extremely popular over the last two years. Their growth doesn't appear to
be slowing down. As a business, one should consider Pinterest almost as important as a blog,
Facebook and Twitter. The combination of using all of these social platforms will increase visibility
which increases visits to your website. This increase will generate sales, which is the main reason
for any business engaging in online platforms for marketing purposes.
