Can you believe we’ve been doing the Pin Project for 6 months?!?! It seems crazy that it has gone on for so long!! I’m pretty excited about how much our traffic has grown in these past 6 months. I’m pretty sure that I’ve found a couple new little tricks that you’re going to love…I’m trying to be popular on Pinterest…and I think it’s working!
1 ~ We’re updating our Pins. And the traffic is showing. We are looking through our posts from last year and updating the pins to match whats trendy on Pinterest. Take a look at our Switch Witch pins:
The one on the left was pinned last year. The most repins I show is 20. The one on the right was pinned on August 31, 2015. So 103 repins in a little over two months! Was it a fluke? I had to find out…
Here are the stats on our Sweet and Spicy Cornbread Casserole…10 repins in 50 weeks vs 39 repins in 3 weeks! (and it doesn’t even have Thanksgiving in the description…something that I’ve since fixed.)
And our Stuffing from Scratch recipe…12 repins in 50 weeks vs. 21 repins in 3 weeks.
The Thankful Tree…11 repins in 1 year vs. 69 pins in 2 weeks!
It was no fluke!! This tip is really working!
2 ~ Pinning from the Popular Pins. This idea came from a Facebook tip that I heard. The tip was to post trending topics on Facebook to get a better reach. It dawned on me…maybe this will work for Pinterest too! When I do my random pinning…you know, the pinning that I still do for fun…I’ve started browsing the Popular pins.
This process has added 5-15 pins to my current 18 pins per day. And it’s stress free.
So, have any of these tricks been helping??? Lets take a look at the stats…
(All stats are based on our Pinterest sessions)
Page Views: 3343– Up 550 views since last month
New Subscribers: 44 – Up 10 since last month
Pinterest Followers: 1502 – Up 118 from last month
I took out the percent of traffic update. I feel like it’s not really an accurate look at our Pinterest growth, since Pinterest is not the only area we’re trying to improve.
The Activity Dice have officially made it into the top 5, knocking out the Card Boxes!
This month I’m going to say I’m LOVING the Popular searches. It’s adding to my pin count and introducing me to some fun new ideas!
