Easy Guide To Pinterest For SEO
Pinterest, as most of you may be aware, is an online pinboard that lets you share any multimedia content within a group. It works on ‘invite only’ basis, which means that you will have to be invited by someone who is already a member using the service. In case you can’t find such a member, you will have to put in a request to the team to include you as a member.

As it is a social media site, it works by sharing photos. Once you sign up, you will be asked if you wish to create a ‘board’. The ‘board’ can belong to a specific group that will be posting related photos. Once your photo is pinned on the board, anyone from the group can ‘repin’ the image.

The primary step that you will take after signing up is to connect Pinterest and Facebook. There is an option where you will be asked if you wish to log-in with either this media site or the other popular one which is Twitter.  You just need to go to the ‘settings’ options you will find there, and use the buttons to establish the links. Once you have done this, all the ‘Pins’ that you pin on Pinterest will automatically appear on your Timeline on Facebook. You may also use Twitter and Flickr to get wider coverage. With millions of Facebook and Twitter users already signed on with Pinterest, you have quite a large target audience.

The next logical thing for you to do to further the reach of your ‘Pins’ is include the buttons on your own website. After you have done this, you will be providing access to your blog users and commenters to share your information through Pinterest. The great thing is that you won’t need any plug-ins and can do it by simply logging in to your Pinterest account and look for the button code by going to ‘About’ and then the Pin it button. Simply search for the section that is titled under the same name and place button code. The Pin-it button will appear on the place where you pasted the button.Read given below posts.
