Pinterest for Bloggers 2018: How to Increase Your Traffic with Pinterest

Before I started my travel site Two Scots Abroad, I had dabbled with Pinterest. I used the platform to search for nail art ideas and Halloween costume inspiration but never considered how Pinterest could help those with a business. Pinterest drives traffic to your website.

It fast became my number one referrer by simply creating one new pin for every article I published (it’s now rivaled by organic search traffic from Google).

The point is, Pinterest is easy to use and can get hundreds – thousands of new eyes on your pages every day. All you have to do is add your pins to Pinterest, which are directly linked to your posts.

If pinners are inclined, they can click through to your website to find out more about the image/pin.

Now I receive traffic from Pinterest daily. Warning, if you do use Pinterest already, your Pinterest strategy may be outdated. Don’t worry, we’re here to show you what is hot in 2018.

The following 8 steps will get you to this stage in no time.

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.
