Content is the king. First thing is that you need to have a great content which people love to read, enjoy and share it with their friends. A content with no power to engage the readers is less likely to be shared on social media sites. While writing articles also make sure that it is free from grammatical errors and spelling mistakes. These kind of errors ruin the image of the article.
Second thing is images. Have you ever wondered why Pinterest became so powerful in a very short duration of time? No doubt Twitter also do the samething as Pinterest is doing but the only difference is the visuals Pinterest has and Twitter doesn’t have. When we open Pinterest we see images all over and we get INSPIRED with the most attractive and creative image. This is true, try it yourself. We are more likely to click the story with the most appealing image. This gives us the hint that images play a great role in bringing traffic from Pinterest. Make sure that you have used an inspiring and attractive image.
Third strategy is to allow users to share your content from your blog to Pinterest. For this you need to have a Pinterest button “Pin it” on your blog. In WordPress, plugins like Digg Digg allows you to have this button on your blog. This will help users easily share your blog posts on their Pinterest board.

Final step is to promote your pins manually. Search for the people in your niche with good amount of Pinterest followers. Request them to share your pins or blog posts. If they do so then your post is going to have a lot of hits. It once happened with me on Twitter. A person of related niche tweeted one of my articles and I started getting 300 visitors per day from only Twitter. Thought this is very low but still it is amazing. At that time I had very low traffic so I was quite excited. This reveals the importance of getting your content shared by popular personalities. I hope these strategies will help you attract a lot of visitors from Pinterest. Pinterest is rapidly becoming popular so make sure that you don’t miss optimizing your blog for it.
