Optimize your SEO: How to make Pinterest Show up on Google
So you created beautiful boards, captioned your pins with long tail keywords and hashtags but you’re not showing up on Google! How could that be? Well, lucky for you, this post will be pretty sure and will tell you exactly what you need to do on Pinterest in order to show up in Google search results.
Update your profile
When’s the last time you updated your Pinterest profile? Has your information or ideal client changed? If so, it’s time to give it a little refresh. Make sure to add direct contact information in your profile such as an email or phone number. Do you offer a freebie? If so, add that to your profile description! If you don’t, do not worry you can also send people to your instagram account if you’re more active there.
I wrote a whole blog post all about Tips to Optimize your Pinterest Profile so be sure to take a look there and implement what you can. I periodically go back to my Pinterest profile and update keywords here and there.
Review your long tail keywords
Once your profile is update, you need to take a look back at the long tail keywords you’re using. Are they easy words that will be searched by your ideal client? What I mean by that is that you don’t want to come up with keywords that are too “poetic” or hard to come up with. Instead of having a board called “Wedding Blooms” simple rename it to “Wedding Flowers”.
If you’re a location-based wedding vendor, you’re going to want to make sure your boards and pin descriptions have the names of your city or local wedding venues that you work at.
Update your privacy settings
Oh boy! If you only implement one thing today, please let it be this! By default, Pinterest checks a little box in your profile settings that says “Hide your profile from search engines (ex. Google)”. NOOOO! If you’re using Pinterest for business, you do NOT want your profile to be hidden. Simply go to your Settings -> Privacy and Data -> Uncheck that little box. Voila!
To recap, there are 3 simple steps you need to take in order to be sure your Pinterest profile shows up on Google. First, update your profile to have all the correct information. Next, review your long tail keywords. Lastly, uncheck that privacy box in your settings.
