You want your readers to share your blog post across the Internet as much as they can! One reason you might want to hide a pinnable image (it could be one with text overlaid) is that you don’t want it to be seen in your blog post, but you’d like your audience to pin it on Pinterest!
But how can they pin it if they can’t see it? That’s what we’re going to show you.
Sometimes images with text perform better than those without text, but they don’t necessarily fit the aesthetic of your blog post. Another reason to hide a pin image could be that you don’t want to clutter your blog post with the long pinnable image, but you still want it to be pinned when your reader goes to share your blog post. So, let’s learn how to hide an image!
How to Hide an Image in Your Blog Post:
- Upload your pin image to your blog post
- Go to the text editor when you’re writing your blog post
Old WordPress Version (Text Tab):
New WordPress Version (Edit as HTML):
Then, go to the image you want to hide, and put this code before the image tag:
<div style = “display:none;”>
IMAGE TAG HERE
Then, put this after the image tag: </div>
<div style = “display:none;”><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-10088" src="https://thrivetogether.blog/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Blog-V2-2.png" alt="" width="600" height="900"></div>
That’s all there is to it! Now, do you want to add multiple pinnable images to one blog post, but want your audience to only pin the main one? The answer to that question should be yes. Why? Pinterest has recently changed the rules on re-pinning images.
They want you to be pinning new content, rather than pinning the same pin over and over again. It makes sense, but it’s going to take more work on our part. That’s why it’s so important to make a Pinterest graphic template to simplify the process.
The other thing you want to do is create a Tailwind account! On Tailwind you can add the same pin to multiple tribes, check out this YouTube video where we show you how Tailwind Tribes work (LINK). Then, you can also go into Tailwind and schedule out other Pinnable images that you don’t necessarily want your audience to use. We show you how to schedule new Tailwind pins (LINK) over on YouTube as well.
So now is the time to go through old posts and hide the pinnable image that you want your audience to pin. Then, keep creating multiple pins for each blog post! That, along with writing great board and pin descriptions *link to blog post*, is going to help you increase your page views.
