What is SEO?
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation.
This is a process where you use Keywords (or Keyphrases) to find what you are looking for in the search engines.
Examples of Keywords are things like: how to lose weight, cheap holidays in Malta or best children’s trousers.
The skill is to use popular keywords in your article or advert, so that it has a high chance of appearing in the search engines.
Optimising keywords is a skill in itself.
If you want to find popular keywords then you could use a site such as Google Keyword Planner.
You just enter keyword ideas and it will suggest popular keyword alternatives as shown below.
You could produce a blog about SEO and then put a Pin on Pinterest sending people to your Blog.
As stated earlier in this post, Pinterest is a great surce of FREE Traffic.

Let us now look at how to optimise your Pinterest posts to get more traffic and likes.
The first thing that you need to do is get morepeople to click on your post.
The more clicks you get the better.
The first thing that you need to do is make an appealing headline for your Pin.
You will have to make a headline that arrouses curiosity in reader.
This is where Keyword Research comes into play.
You will have to know which keywords people are clicking on.
That is why you need to use a keyword research tool.
You will need to put what your Pin is about about and get alternatives from the Keyword Planner.
You will want to chose a keyword that is popular, but has low competition.
Let us assume your pin is about losing weight.
Dont call you pin “How To Lose Weight”
There is to much competition for that keyword.
Instead put how to lose weight into the keyword suggestion box and see what alternatives it suggests.
This shows a good alternative may be “How To Lose Face Fat”
There are 10k – 100k searches for that term but with low competition.
It may take some time to come up with the best keyword, but the time will be worth it in the end.
Let us look at how to create a Pin on Pinterest.
We have decided on the title for the Pin, now we need to put a bit about what the Pin is about.
For this section we need to repeat what we did on the title section and chose appropriate keywords with lots of searches but with low competion.
This may take a bit of time when you first start out, but the more you do it, the quicker you will get.
In this section you may want to use what are known as long-tailed keywords.
What Are Long-Tail Keywords?
These are keywords that have more than three words in them.
The competition for these sort of keywords is a lot less, but the conversions are often higher, so you can make more sales.
I have provided a video below that explains this.
Hopefully you can see why it is important to use long-tailed keywords.
It is a good idea to put long-tail keywords in your about section because this is where you can “Drill down” and explain what more specifically what your Pin is about.
