A quick note about the reviews on this site: I am an affiliate for every product I review. The vendors of these products give me them without charge in order for me to test them. However all my reviews are done as honestly as possible and I make no promises to the vendor prior to writing my review. Should you click a link on this site that takes you to a paid product this link will be an affiliate link and I will be paid a percentage of the sales price should you decide to purchase that product.

Accept that search on Pinterest is king:
Optimize your pins, boards, and posts to be found in search by using relevant keywords. It’s not enough to have lots of followers any longer.
Make it uber easy to pin content from your blog:
Pin It buttons and compelling images are the very basics.
Create pin descriptions with a balance of keywords and engaging copy:
You can’t rely on keywords alone with descriptions or you’ll look spammy. Craft the right balance and you’ll get seen in search AND get pinners to click through to your blog.
