Why Pinterest Views Are Important For Your Blog

by | Oct 3, 2017 | Business | 0 comments

Pinterest views are important (in my opinion) because it’s a way to know if your content is actually being seen.

As a new blogger (back when I wrote this post in 2017), I knew Pinterest was going to be a major tool to help my blog grow because all the VA clients I worked with focused on it, too. I knew that I could apply the social media skills that I had learned as a virtual assistant directly to my blogging strategy and make it work for me.

I had been noticing a steady increase in monthly views during the last week of September 2017, so decided to keep track of it. On September 30th, my monthly view total was at 13.8k. The next day, October 1st, it had gone up to 15k. By the morning of October 2nd, I noticed that I had officially reached 20.8k monthly views. *Insert happy dance here* I clearly must be doing something right. 

Now, before you start asking yourself what course I took, I wanted to let you know that I didn’t buy a course or work with anyone specific to do this at first. All I did was research what others were doing, read other blog posts, and followed these specific steps.

4 Steps That Helped Me Increase My Pinterest Views in 1 Month: 

Changed My Personal Pinterest Page To A Business Page

This was a game-changer for me. I removed all of the people who had content that didn’t relate to what I am currently doing and started following those who have lifestyle blogs themselves. The analytics are amazing and give me the knowledge I need to implement a strategy that works! 

Joined Facebook Groups and Group Boards on Pinterest

The Facebook groups I’m in have daily threads to help promote your content and collaborate with other bloggers. It’s a great resource to have when you’re just starting out because it’s free exposure as long as you reciprocate. The group boards on Pinterest are a way for you to get your pins in front of more people so they can share your content with their audience.

***As of April 2021, Pinterest Group Boards are not being utilized as much. Only use them if you can post relevant content to them.***

Joined Tailwind & Tailwind Communities

I’ll admit that this was a bit confusing at first but I quickly got the hang of it. With a free month of Tailwind, I was able to learn the ins and outs and find tribes that relate to Lifestyle & Lifestyle Blogs. I’m currently pinning around 25 pins per day via Tailwind alone and pin the rest randomly throughout the day.

Consistently Pinned Content = More Views

As of April 2021, Pinterest encourages creators to create brand new content every day and post to the most relevant boards.

I used to repin my blog posts and find other pins that relate to my content (lifestyle, mindset, and business), but as a creator, I don’t need to do that anymore. I did this previously to increase my reach and to support other bloggers by sharing, re-pinning, and commenting on their posts. Creating new pins in Canva helped me switch things up too!

In order to be seen, you need to take action and promote yourself every day. If you don’t feel comfortable doing that, I’d check in with yourself and find out why. When I did that, I realized I was too afraid to promote myself because of a fear of being seen. Now that I found my voice, I feel more confident than ever. My Pinterest views have increased so much once I implemented a consistent strategy that worked for me and I couldn’t be happier.

Every month there are constant changes to the platform and its algorithm. If your Pinterest Views or pin analytics drop drastically, feel comfortable reaching out to Pinterest Customer Service and ask why. More times than not, your profile may have gotten flagged accidentally by their spam filter. Stay positive and stay consistent!
