So take it away Dexter!
Well, you wanted it and it looks like it is on the way.
Pinterest has revealed it will start testing the most requested feature by members: the ability to create Pinterest board sections, boards within boards to help users better organize their ideas.
Here is an example of how it will work:
You create a Pinterest board around the Food niche, you can then split the board into Pinterest board sections or if you like sub-categories. So you can organize pins into, desserts, starters, main courses, snacks, basically however you want, all within your main pinboard, Food.
“We’ve just started testing one of the features you’ve wanted most: boards within boards,” said Evan Sharp, Pinterest co-founder, and chief product officer.
“Soon you’ll be able to add sections to your boards, making it easy to organize Pins the way you want to. This means you can save all of your ideas to a single board, organize them into sections and easily find them later.”
This news comes off the back of Pinterest announcing that they have just passed 200 million monthly active users on their Pinterest blog. They have jumped a staggering 40% in the last year alone and are now valued at $12.3bn according to the Financial Times
So it is clear that Pinterest is a great social to be part of so…
Here are 4 quick tips to help you stand out on Pinterest
1. Pin Big Images.
Large images standout on the feed so use images that are at least 600 pixels wide.
2. Use Keywords and Hashtags.
With WordPress, you can optimize your images and add tags to your image title attribute so that when your article images are pinned the description and tags for the images are carried over to Pinterest optimizing them for Pinterest search.
3. Pin Popular Content
Keep track of the topics you pin that get the most engagement. You can also check your Pinterest analytics to see what content your audience pins most from your site.
4. Engage With Other Pinterest Users
If you are pinning curated content then tag the user that created the content. They will be more likely to share your pins. You can also create a guest pinboard and invite others to share to the board.
So it’s over to you!
