How to Do Keyword Research on Pinterest
Just like with Google, keywords matter for Pinterest! If you want to take one thing away from this, it's that you need to invest your time into researching and implementing keywords on Pinterest in order to get traffic there! Check out the full episode we did on how to find Pinterest keywords in Episode 128.
When looking at Pinterest keywords you want to search for ads. Don't worry, you don't have to make an ad! But you can pretend like you're making one.
First you'll to create an ad and fill out the info. Don't worry, you don't have to pay for anything! But fill it out and click "continue" until you get to the interest and keywords area. Here, you'll click "enable", add your keywords, and type your keyword into the search bar for additional suggestions. And then write down those keywords!
Where to place Pinterest Keywords
So where do you place these keywords you've just found? The whole point of this (just like with Google SEO), is that by utilizing the right keywords people are finding your blog and visiting it.
You're going to want to put your keywords in your Pin Title and in your Pin Description. Don't skip optimizing your profile either, by putting keywords related to your niche within your bio. Definitely write for your audience, but use keywords for SEO!
You also want to optimize your boards. You'll want a board description for every single one of your boards, as well as keywords within the title of your board. (Tip: If you have boards that are irrelevant to your niche you can make them secret boards.)
