How to get traffic from Pinterest

Today I’m going to talk to you about fresh content.  What even is fresh content? Well obviously fresh content is pinning brand new content on your site.  But unless we are constantly creating posts we are going to run out of things to put on Pinterest. So what other types of fresh content are there? Well fresh content can be a few things really.  Let’s have a look at the pins you’ve got and try and make fresh content with them.

 

Multiple Pins

So first of all there’s one that you’ll probably hear all the time. Create multiple pins.  Fresh content can be as easy as popping a new image up. Pinterest can see the different colours in an image and it knows it’s a new image although it can’t read it and it can’t exactly see what it is, it tries to match pins by image with other pins so it will know it’s something new. So if you’ve got a great old post that you want to give a bit of a refresh on pinterest and repinning is just not doing it’s job, head over to Canva or Picmonkey or whatever you use and create a couple of new pins. Long pins are not as well loved anymore on Pinterest so they are telling you to avoid using them however I do still see a lot of traction on my long pins. So if you’re creating a couple anyway it could be worth popping one on, it’s totally your choice.
