Linkbuilding using Pinterest

About Pinterest

Pinterest is a social media network focusing on sharing visual content. Pinterest is a website that allows you to "pin" things online, just as you would pin them on a real life bulletin board, but instead, Pinterest saves all of your pins on your account so that you can access them easily. Plus, you can follow friends on Pinterest and "repin" things that they have already pinned on your Pinterest boards or browse a live feed of items that are being pinned by strangers when you're searching for inspiration.

How to get links from Pinterest to your website

You can create links from Pinterest to your website by "pinning" them to your board. Pinterest is a visual oriented platform, so each pin needs to be accompanied by a visual. If you have a webshop, you could pin products by using their product image. But to stand out, you need to be creative. If you share an funny, stunning or cute image you have an higher chance of having other users pinning the content to their boards. Each user pinning your pin to their board is creating a new link. This means other Pinterest users are link building for you. So remember, when linkbuilding quality is as least as importand as quality.
