descriptions this is where you want to put in the keywords that you really want to be found for so i always recommend that you do some research on this if you haven’t already watched my video on how to rank number one on pinterest go ahead and watch it because it breaks this down for you in full detail so i’m going to give you a quick overview right now now it’s really important to nail both the title of your pen as well as the pin description so i’m going to show you how you can do that now if you look at this one article you can see that it has been pinned over 300 000 times and that’s because it’s being found on pinterest and every time it gets found and someone shares it and someone likes it it brings traffic back to my site where they pin it not only does my exposure go up but my followers go up my clicks go up my leads go up as well as my sales so it all works perfectly together now here’s what you do to make sure that you are getting these descriptions nailed down okay what i do is i just use pinterest keyword tool which is inside the pinterest ads manager all right again go back to that other video to see the exact details on how to get there and then what i’ll do is i’ll start looking for keywords that are related to what i’m going to be sharing so i might type in here social media and i want to see what they’re saying are the top keywords now again when it comes to social media look at the amount of searches we’ve got marketing ideas five million monthly searches blogging and social media social media tips social media post ideas has five million plus so i would say i’m gonna add social media post ideas i’m also going to add social media post and i’m also going to type in content and see if i get any good keywords there and i’ve got marketing on social media and that looks to be good now i typically look for about three to five per piece of content so social media post ideas social media posts marketing on social media and then i would do social media content ideas i’m gonna copy these and then i’m gonna come back over to my description and i’m just going to do these two forward dashes and i’m going to add in those keywords and i’m just going to make them look nice and neat bam just like that and i already had social media content ideas so i’m already a step ahead and now what’s happening is i’m adding in those heavy volume keyword search phrases to the description of my pin which is going to help it be found higher in the search results so again i always recommend you choose at least three to five keyword phrases and that’s how you are gonna start ranking your pins which is gonna attract more people to you it’s gonna totally explode your traffic and it is a killer strategy to help you dominate your marketing on pinterest now i’m gonna give you one more quick bonus hack just like i told you you can pin this same piece of content twice with different titles you should also do the same thing with different descriptions so i might pin this one time with one keyword phrase set and then i might pin it again with a totally different keyword phrase set so that way i have different pieces of content that are ranking for different keyword phrases that’s another strategy you can use you can also vary the graphics so that it’s not just the same graphic but again this is going to help you really spider web and snowball out your marketing by doing this simple simple strategy of pinning it twice and segmenting out your different keyword phrases that’s another bonus tip again if you like my bonus tips make sure you guys subscribe to my channel and click like on this video so that we can dominate the youtube news feed as well pinterest seo hack number seven and stay with me because pinterest hack number eight is going to totally change the game for you so pinterest seo hack number seven is gonna have to do with video now there’s two ways so this is almost like a double bonus tip right here there’s two different ways that you can be using video right now on pinterest so one is through story pins so if you come up here and you click create you’re going to see an option for create story pins these go at the top of your pinterest it’s typically on your mobile device you can see them right up here it’s probably going to be really hard to see but you can see the little story pins right here so if you’re creating story pins then use the keyword tips that you’ve learned today make sure that the title is seo friendly and make sure that the description includes the keyword phrases that you want to be found for that’s going to help your stories get so much exposure you aren’t going to know what to do with yourself now the second thing i want to show you is actually instead of creating just a static graphic as a pin is creating a video pin now these are found a little bit differently and they rank entirely differently so if you look here you can see some of these are videos now here’s a static image versus a video now all i did was make sure that this little icon right here is blinking and that makes it an actual video and you can see here that this one had only 680 impressions whereas this one had 2400 so there’s a pretty big difference now again i did some more testing you can see here that this is a video that i did it got 4 800 impressions but over here as a story it got 1200 impressions and each of these has a title as well as a description so you want to make sure that you are using the newest features that the platforms give you because if you do you’re going to be able to dominate using these tips so make sure that you’re creating stories and you’re adding videos again following the board type i’m sorry the pin titles as well as the pin descriptions adding in those keyword phrases and that’s going to help you get found even more you can thank me later now are you guys ready to move on to pinterest seo hack number eight this is the special exclusive one i’m

monthly views completely organically are you ready all right here’s what it is i’m gonna pick this pin right here now you can see that this pin has way more clicks to it than the other ones right this one’s got a ton this one had one repin this one had five repins but it had 49 clicks so what did i do differently here how come that one is outperforming when it’s basically the exact same thing here’s why i’m going to open this one up and i’m going to show you something here i’m going to hit edit so we can get the full description now what you’re going to see is basically what i’ve just taught you right it’s got a very good title it’s a free social media strategy tells you exactly what it is right it’s got a marketing plan so if anyone is searching for free social media strategy or a marketing plan this is probably going to be one of the top results then what i did is i also used the description to put in some keywords make sure people knew they had to enter their email in order to download this option it tells them exactly what’s in the guide okay that’s so that they can download it now here’s where the seo stuff comes in you can see here there’s two different sets of keywords one is the keywords that i just showed you how to do free social media marketing strategy social media strategy i’ve got four different keyword phrases in there that i researched that should be what people are typing to find something just like this now here’s the exclusive tip that i’m going to share with you what we have found right now especially in 2020 what’s performing the best for us on pinterest is to do a combination of keyword phrases and hashtags hashtags with keywords so instead of doing one pin with keyword phrases and one pin with hashtags i do one pin with keyword phrases and hashtags this has been crushing it for us we’re getting way more traffic to our site we’re getting way more impressions so i encourage you to test this strategy out make sure that you research them so that they are as relevant as possible and then edit some of your descriptions or add in some new pins that have a description of what the pin is about your keyword phrases as well as three to five hashtags and we have found that that’s been working really well for us so you test this out and let me know what the results that you get are i love when i get comments from people who say hey i used your ranking video and now i’m ranking number one our impressions are skyrocketing and i just want to come back to this video to say thank you i want that to be you so make sure you go
