    Thanks for this Amazing guide, Emily. It really helps me. By the way, I’ve been trying to drive traffic from pinterest to my blog and have still no success. I have started pinterest marketing for 2 months and My current monthly views is 2.4K, 300 engagement and about 3 visitor/day to my website. I have created 3 boards and about 30 pins. All of them are my own pins. I’ve never repinned other’ pins.

    I have read your guide and you said that “how to” and “list” posts work on pinterest. How about “the best xxx” kind of post? Will this type of post has no chance to get repinned and viral? This is because most of my posts are “the best xxx” post.
    What are your thought?
    Thanks 🙂

      Hey Dewi!

      By the sounds of it, you only have 3 boards total and only 30 pins. Start by increasing these numbers and create a lot more boards, starting with 15-20. Also, make more pins and keep adding them. People and Pinterest like to see full profiles. Another reason you may not be getting a ton of traffic is the style of your pins. I can’t see your pins so I’m sure what they look like but this can effect click-throughs. If you’re not seeing the results you want, also start creating more pins with different colors, images and text to see what your audience really likes.

      As far as “the best…” type posts, they do still work very well on Pinterest but again, this can come down to your pin images, if you’re using the correct keywords or not, how “valuable” Pinterest is viewing your profile and so on. Pinterest is a long game BUT creating more pins, testing out different designs for your pins, adding more keyword rich boards and pins should help you drive more traffic from Pinterest.

      Hope that helped!
