Have You Optimized Your Blog for Pinterest Shares?

  1. 1. Optimizing blog posts for Pinterest makes it easier for people to share your posts by pinning them to relevant boards. It is very easy to make blog posts more pinnable by implementing a few simple steps when publishing them.
  2. 2. Every blog post should include a portrait image with a 2:3 aspect ratio, as this is the perfect style of image for Pinning. Square images can also work, but the portrait layout is by far the preferred option. You will also want to make sure that the image is visually striking, making it more attractive to pinners.
  3. 3. Creating an appealing image with a text overlay can help to give context to pins. It is more likely that someone will pin this type of image rather than a generic stock image! As noted previously, portrait is best for Pinterest, but landscape works well on Facebook and Twitter. Why not think about including both versions to really up your social media game?
  4. 4. Short infographics offer both visual appeal and a Pinterest-ready image in one! Traditionally, infographics are fairly long, but if you focus on just one or two take outs from your blog, you can create a Pinterest friendly short version! You don't need to be an expert to design your own infographics, there are many great online tools that will help you.
  5. 5. To summarize, the three most important ways to optimize your blog posts for Pinterest include: Adding pinnable images to all previously published blog posts, Inserting title images to give context, and using infographics.
