Do you remember this post from two weeks ago? Since my recipes are some of my more popular posts, I decided to start putting them on my Pinterest boards in an attempt to get more traffic to my blog.
Well, it went viral and got tons and tons of pins. It is now my most popular post and is the number four recipe listed when you search for butternut squash soup on Google. An added bonus is that my blog is being exposed to new readers who otherwise may never have visited. Who knew butternut squash soup was so popular?
If you aren't already pinning images from your posts to Pinterest, I highly recommend to start doing so. A few other things I would suggest are to periodically change the order of your boards on your profile to make sure that the top two rows are relevant to those who may be looking at them. For example, since it's currently fall, I have my fall board up there and will switch it to Christmas after Thanksgiving. I also make sure that my boards pertaining to things I blog about regularly are up there as well. Pinterest is truly an underused resource. You never know how far it can take you!
