How to Quintuple Your Page Views Using Pinterest

Pinterest Quintuple

My blog traffic from Pinterest increased five times when my Pinterest followers quintupled.

Are you interested in more readers?  (Aren’t we all?  I don’t think any bloggers would turn down more readers.)   If you are interested, I still have your attention.  Good.  How does the number 70 million sound to you?

You didn’t misread the statistic, and I didn’t make a typographical error.  70 million users currently use Pinterest, according to 2015 stats*, and this post is going to tell you how to tap that.

In January of this year, I had 100 Pinterest followers. Now, just two months later, I am just shy of having six times that.  You are welcome to check it out for yourself.  Here is the link: https://www.pinterest.com/janicewald/.  However, at the rate I’m getting followers, I expect it will be more than six times what I had two months ago when you click it.

Approximately six hundred people are currently looking at my blog post pictures.  Approximately half of that number will click the pin and read the article that goes with it.

On your stats page you will be able to see the number of pinners (that’s what Pinterest users are called) that clicked your pin.

The goal is to find a Pinterest superstar, a person with so many followers that they are considered a Pinterest celebrity, at least by me.

How to Increase Your Pinterest Followers

In the Pinterest search bar, type your niche.  For me, it would be blog.  Hit Enter.

Look for the word pinners.  Click it.

You have found a gold mine.  Every pinner in your niche is in front of you on the screen.  The best part, they are all in order by followers.  Your goal is to find someone in your niche with many followers who might be interested in following your boards as well.

When I typed in “blog,” I had a plethora of choices.  Thanks to Pinterest, I was not in the dark about who to follow.  We are able to see the pictures people have pinned on their boards, at least a sampling of them.

One of the pinners that came up for me is @sueannedunlevie (www.successfulblogging.com).  Her tag line is the same as mine.  It reads, “I pin blogging tips.”  Since I do as well, I knew we’d attract the same kind of followers.  Plus, she has 3,085 followers.

If I follow them, and half follow me, I would have 1,542 Pinterest followers in addition to the followers I already have.  All would be able to see my graphics.  I know to make my graphics colorful and long.  I read orange, red, and brown do best.  See 4 Ways to Start Blogging Creatively for instructions on how to make engaging pictures.  I use appropriate hashtags so pinners know what my blog posts are about, and I give them a call to action–a reason to click, just like I do at the end of my blog post.

I started following her, I started following her followers, and then something great happened.  She invited me to pin to her Blogging Pros group board.  I guessed I’ve made it to the big time!  I got noticed by a blogging superstar!

The beauty is that when I pin, everyone in the group who pins to the board sees my pins.  The odds of my traffic improving has increased since there’s a 50% chance they may click it.

I heard the statistic is 50% that half of the people you follow will reciprocate and  follow your boards.  Frankly, I have found it far more than 50%, but let’s lowball.  Once half follow your boards, half will pin them.  Half of those will click the pin and go to your blog and read the article that goes with the pin (the picture).

The more followers you get, the more traffic you should see on your stats page coming over from Pinterest.  I know bloggers who get 40% of their traffic from Pinterest. You can too if you follow the advice in this post.

Readers, if you think others would like more blog readers and more fun in their lives since Pinterest is so much fun it is downright addicting, please share.

I have only been using Pinterest for two months consistently.  What are your experiences?  What kind of traffic do you get from Pinterest and how long have you been pinning?  I look forward to your views.

    Okay, I followed you, so I hope you follow me, too! 🙂 I’ve been having a problem getting my pins repinned (especially about classes I’m teaching at the Bead&Button Show in June – I’m getting nervous about my lack of registrations!). I’m looking forward to seeing if your tips work for me! Thanks!

    This is a really great tip! I have not made a concerted effort to gain followers, I have been using Pinterest since the early days and gained followers organically, but as it is an essential part of my traffic building activities I need to focus on these types of tips and tricks a bit more.

      Hi Andi,
      I wrote another post tonight about Pinterest due to be published in about 3 hours.
      Can I ask what you mean by “organically”? Thanks,
      Nice to “meet” you.

      Hi,
      If you are on WordPress.com go to stats and look at “clicks” and “referrers” and you will see. I don’t know about other platforms. I always wonder how people find me, so thanks for sharing, reading what I wrote, and writing me.

      Hi Brandi!
      Thanks for writing. Do you remember when you were trying to give me advice just a few short months ago? I love Pinterest. When someone pins, clicks, or likes my pins, it’s an adrenaline rush. I feel proud, especially since I lack artistic skills.
      Thanks for inspiring me.
      Janice

    Thank you for such a wonderful post! I’m working on my pinning but haven’t even looked at my stats page – in fact I didn’t know there was one! I’m off to look now and will bookmark this fab post!! Thanks for linking up with #twinklytuesday

    • Janice Wald at 3:08 pm

      Thanks again for the kind words Lisa. However, I didn’t know there was a stats page on Pinterest either. I think the Pinterest business account holders might be able to see the stats for their pins, but I can’t.
      I meant at WordPress. Under “clicks” and “referrers”. It tells where people come from, how they find you. I get traffic from Pinterest. I can tell how much by looking at my Pinterest stats. See you Tuesday. Make sure you send me the link. Take care,
      Janice

  5. adrianscrazylife at 10:35 am

    Well, this is just some kind of brilliant! I never would have thought to search for other bloggers this way. I’m so gonna do this! Thanks for the tip!

    • Janice Wald at 9:23 pm

      Thank you so much my friend for the kind words. I just added them to my Testimonials page, anonymously, of course.
      I do have a question about the Testimonials page. Do you have one? If yes, do you add the commenter’s name?
      Thanks

    By the way, when the year began, I had 100 Pinterest followers. Now I have over 700. Find a pinner with a massive following in your niche, and follow all those people. They will follow you on Pinterest and many will pin your pin and click it to come to your blog.

    Hi Alex,
    Too weird. I actually have three places you can share my articles. I have two rows of social sharing buttons. I also have a column of social sharing buttons off to the left. I tried to copy for you where to find one row of social sharing buttons:

    Hey, awesome tip! I set up my pinterest page but I am just not seeing the word pinners. I see a people section but not pinners anywhere. Can you please guide me to the right direction?

    • Janice Wald at 9:58 am

      Hi Tunisia,
      Great to hear from you. Thank you for writing me. I’m glad you enjoyed my Pinterest article. Since I wrote it, Pinterest changed the word “Pin” to “Share.” They were afraid foreigners would be confused. Does this help?
      Janice

      • Tunisia at 10:30 am

        Hey. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I don’t see it on my phone app but once I gain enough energy (I’m sick ?), I’ll look on my computer and see if I see that word. It’s probably right in front of my face and I’m just not seeing it. lol

      • Tunisia at 5:14 pm

        Hey, so unfortunately, I am not seeing share anywhere either. I did follow one major blogger that is in a similar niche as me and follow some of her subscribers. I am still new to the pinterest thing but hopefully, I’ll get the hang of it and gain more followers soon which will translate to more readers.

    The credit for my successful Pinterest account goes to PinPinterest com. I used to spend a lot of time on Pinterest and still, I was not able to get a decent amount of followers. For the first time, I used PinPinterest for my Pinterest account automation, and it became the savior of my sinking account. Within a few weeks, I got a lot of active followers, thanks to PinPinterest.
