The best way is to make sure you pin FROM your blog TO Pinterest (or any other social media accounts you have).
When you pin from your blog TO Pinterest, the address (URL) of your post is automatically included. Why is that a great thing? ‘Cuz when someone clicks your pin or clicks “Website” it takes them right to that pin of yours where they can
And when someone repins (shares) that pin of yours, your links stay there and that gets you more traffic!
Whether you pin directly from your blog or upload an image from your computer, make sure you have a link directly to something specific, not to the home page or a generic thing-a-ma-bob. It is realllly frustrating to be interested in a pin and ready to learn more, then find yourself nowhere near the topic you were interested in.
Not good karma, eh? And doesn’t do a lot for the folks coming to visit your wonderful offerings.
The easier you make it for people to pin, follow, SHARE, the more likely they are to do so. There are a bunch of ways and here are a few….
Note: These tips are based on using a WordPress site. To the best of my knowledge, most of the other blogging platforms have similar functions.
Note 2: You can add/edit a URL from the pin if you happen to forget this one. And be aware, there are some unscrupulous folks who have a bad habit of redirecting pins to their site. Not quite sure how they do it AND I’ve seen it happen over and over again. Dang, don’t like that approach at all, do you?
