Pinterest is social website based upon concept of image search engine. Pinterest now ranks among top 100 websites on internet. It was reported to have 200 Million active users as of September 2017. Not only it grows due to referral traffic, pinterest boards (similar to facebook pages) are ranked for many terms on search engines, resulting in steady growth. So pinterest will keep growing as internet grows.
Your profile pic and other settings can be managed through settings page.
And remember to confirm your email.
3: Getting Followers on Pinterest
I have used this technique to grow massive followers on more than 5 profiles and it worked each time.
For this method first you need to make quotes/memes website, for full instructions on how to setup quotes website and do posting please refer to main pdf guide book “posting” chapter.
Once you have made quotes website you need to post “quotes” articles with titles that are searched most on Pinterest. To do this you need to search each quotes/memes term on Pinterest and use the related keywords shown below to publish articles.
You can start with major terms like “quote” “quotes” “sayings” “meme” “memes” “Funny memes” “humor” “Hilarious” and then move to trending terms from Google trends.
I searched for quotes in Google trends and found “anthony bourdain quotes” as top trending terms, searching “anthony bourdain” on Pinterest showed that relevant most searched term on Pinterest is “anthony bourdain quote”.
Similarly, you can search other trending terms, TV shows, movies, celebrities to find relevant most searched quotes/memes terms.
For trending TV show “Better Call Saul” at time of writing this guide the relevant most searched quotes/memes on Pinterest were “Better Call Saul memes” “Better Call Saul Quotes” “Better Call Saul Funny”.
Remember that for this method you should always use quotes/memes from within Pinterest because they get ranked easily on Pinterest and attract more traffic.
Now you need to publish at least 10 quotes/memes posts on your blog, use same format as described in main pdf guide “posting” chapter, but remember for this technique you will download and use quotes/memes from Pinterest.
For installing extension just search for “Pinterest Extension for your Browser”.
To share images to your Pinterest profile, just open the website URL and hover to any image to see pin button, this button is shown once you install Pinterest extension. Other way is to use your own installed plugin for Pinterest.
Choose appropriate board and save.
Similarly, you should keep scrolling down and post each image quote/meme of your article to Pinterest. Try to make 3-4 general quotes boards like “Good Quotes” “Inspiring Quotes” etc. and make couple of narrow niche quotes boards i.e. “Better Call Saul Quotes” “Game of Thrones Memes” etc. Make around 15-20 quotes/memes boards and regularly post pins to these boards.
To start getting good followers you need to post at least every other day, it’s better to divide your quotes/memes of one article on multiple boards, like if you have 25 quotes for one article you can post five, five quotes to 5 different boards.
You should post around 3-4 articles to your blog in a week and share whole article at a time to Pinterest by dividing your pins to multiple boards, after you have posted pins from your blog; you need to repin some related pins by searching keyword to same boards from within Pinterest.
I am getting maximum followers only in quotes/memes niche, the reason is that they are most repined images on Pinterest. As a result, they get way more impressions than any other niche; as more people on Pinterest see your pins, the more people follow you. I have tried couple of other niche like DIY, Gardening, Home Decor, Travel but the amount of followers these niches get was not even near whatwe get in quotes/memes.
3.1: Converting to Business
You will not start getting followers unless you convert your profile to business; this is most important step.
Before converting to Business make sure you have shared at least 3-4 posts to Pinterest. To start of you need to go to business.pinterest.com. Click Join as Business. Enter details and it is better to add your niche keyword as business name.
After setting up business; go to settings page.
Click claim website in settings page
Copy the meta tag and place it on your website head, you can do so by using “insert header and footer” plugin.
Click save and then hit submit button on Pinterest.
Now you need to apply for Rich pins in Pinterest account.
Remember if you want to promote a website on Pinterest always verify your website, and post pins only from that website to specific profile that has verified the said blog. Never post images from any other website extensively or your account might get ban.
To apply for rich pins, visit: business.pinterest.com/en/rich-pins
In next page scroll down and click validator.
Enter URL of an article from your verified website that has already been shared on Pinterest.
After your article has been validated; click apply.
This is important step for getting massive followers; because rich pins are shown more often in search queries and related pins in Pinterest as a result they get more impression as well as followers.
Once rich pin is enabled; your pin will automatically show title and description from article page.
Against without rich pin where no such data is shown.
Once your website is verified your pins will start showing follow button.
This is the reason why quotes website Pinterest profile gets so many followers.
So this technique of getting massive followers works only with Pinterest profiles with verified websites, and profiles having quotes/memes website works best. Since these are the most repined images on Pinterest, each pin which is originated from your website will have follow button for your profile, no matter who pins or repins it. This follow button on each pin allows to get quick followers.
Once you have verified website and rich pin enabled the next thing is to get quick start, since at start you don’t have followers and growing with zero followers will be very time consuming, this is where group boards comes in (a feature much like facebook groups).
Pinterest group boards are just normal boards; just you can join these boards from other owners and post pins if owners accept your request.
So if a Pinterest profile has 100K followers, and owner of that profile invites to one of his board then you will also have access to these 100K followers, so you can post stuff there and get solid start.
As mentioned earlier, any Pinterest user can start group board. Just click the edit button in any board and add people in collaborators field.
So the next question is where to get group boards?
You will need to search profiles having group boards and ask permission from owner to invite you to their group board.
You can sort boards by any category. Open any board to get started, most of these will have instructions how to get invited. Follow instructions or if there are not any instructions you can still message the owner for invite.
Before asking for invites make sure your profile looks great, add at least 20-30 boards of different categories and fill them with plenty of pins.
You can also search group boards from within Pinterest, just search any keyword and choose boards.
The boards with round icons are group boards, open these and follow instructions to get invited.
3.2 Super Viral Technique
A great technique to make your pins viral quickly is to make secondary accounts.
You can make 1-2 secondary accounts which will not be linked to any website, these will be used to repin pins from your main accounts having verified websites.
But you should operate these accounts on separate ips then main accounts, a great way is to buy private ips. I am using myprivateproxy and buyproxies for this purpose; both are good and have excellent customer support.
They will provide a list of ips with port, user & pass. To setup proxy just open your browser settings page and go to proxy.
Go to Lan settings
Enter your proxy ip and port
Then open any website and enter username/password for that ip.
After that you can access Pinterest with this unique ip, also you might want to check out the ip at moment by visiting, whatismyipaddress.com
It is safe to use up to 4 Pinterest accounts at same ip, but make sure to use main accounts and secondary accounts on separate one’s.
You can also use Virtual Private Server (VPS) to operate additional accounts, it is just like simple computer but it remains online all the time and you can access it remotely from your windows or other operating system.
One of the best service which I am also using is solidseovps, prices start from $14.95. So you can keep your additional accounts online on these computers and access them anytime, this makes your work hell lot easy and fun.
Check out solidseovps here: www.grabthistool.com/solidvps
Once you buy one of the VPS package and by the way go for windows, don’t buy linux if you don’t know how to operate it. Ok, so once you have the package; you will get welcome email with your new vps details including ip address, username and password. You can access your private server remotely from windows using “Remote Desktop” application, just search for it in “search bar”.
Open the application and enter your login credentials.
It will then ask you to enter password, enter it to access the RDP.
You will now get access to RDP, you can install any applications and run any program on your remote desktop.
You can install different browsers here, like if you have three browsers you can login and run one account on each. And don’t operate your accounts at same time, open one account, do all work and then close the browser. After that you can open the next browser and work on other account.
You will not add website to your secondary accounts, and will not convert them to business. These accounts are not to be grown, you will use them only to help grow your main accounts more quickly.
First make sure you add proper profile pic and profile description for these accounts, then using the technique explained earlier for getting group boards; you will try to find as many group boards as you can for these accounts. Remember don’t add same group boards to these accounts as your main accounts.
Once you have couple of group boards then you will repin pins from your main account to the boards in these secondary accounts.
Important: You should not repin extensively only from one account, Pinterest will track this fishy and might ban your account, try to repin from 2-3 profiles, they can be all yours. And at the end when you have repined all your pins try to search the same category pins on Pinterest and repin some pins to your boards and group boards, try to make it look more natural.
So the routine should be like this.
Access your main account, open your latest article of website to be published on Pinterest, then post pins by dividing them to your boards and group boards.
On same day or next day login to one of your secondary accounts on different ip, open the pins page of your main account on which you published pins from website earlier.
It should be like this: https://www.pinterest.com/arz0811/pins/
Simply repin the pins here which are from your site to your boards using secondary account.
Hover on any pin and click select to choose relevant board and then click save.
Repin all the pin from your main account and remember don’t repeat pins, Pinterest does not like repeat pinning.
You can make multiple secondary accounts for this purpose; all having different group boards. Just make sure you don’t only repin from one account, try to repin from couple. And then search boards to make it look natural.
same category pins in Pinterest which is “Quotes” in this case and also repin some to your
In this way you can make your pins go viral more quickly.
4: Case study, How I got 100k Followers
Using the technique explained earlier I was able to build a profile having more than 120K followers, this profile gets 399 followers daily which is upper limit of per day followers any profile can get by Pinterest which is not bad at all, this translates to 12000 followers per month.
And if you can start work on couple of profiles at same time then number of followers you can get per week are just insane.
Once you have lot of followers on your profile you can make board of any category to accommodate your any site. You will then invite your other category profile by using “Collaborator” feature and then that profile will have access to your quotes profile followers, so you can drive traffic to your any website using quotes based Pinterest profile.
And once I had couple of thousand followers on my main account I stopped repining technique using secondary accounts also I removed any group boards from my main account, and only pinned to my own personal accounts. The group boards and secondary pinning technique is just to get you first couple of thousand followers quickly, once you have them your account will keep getting followers daily as long as you keep posting. Even if you don’t post the followers will keep coming but number will shrink.
My routine which helps me get 399 followers each day is;
Post 2-3 articles on my blog quoteswords.com each week.
Post 3 articles to my Pinterest account not all on same day but on 3 different days in a week.
Each time I post an article to my account; I always post some random related pins to same boards where I posted images from website, this is very important step for this to work.
Post random pins to at-least 5-10 boards of different categories, including recipes, weddings,fashion, travel and so on, these pins are just randomly searched on pinterest.
I keep checking my analyst to see which pins are most successful then try to post more similar to them.
Using this routine, I have built this profile from scratch to 120K Followers, not only this I have dozens ofother accounts having large followers; all grown using this technique but they don’t get this much followers as I am not regular on those profiles.
To check analytics, click on analytics tab.
You can go to overview to see stats of all the pins posted to your profile, or you can click website to check out the most repined pins from your website.
Following screen is from overview stats showing all your pins posted.
Regularly check out analytics to see what type of pins are working the most then try to post similar.
You should also regularly check the notifications to see what results you are getting from most recent pins.
Also you can check out recently posted pins from your website, just go to your pins tab and click any pin to open.
Once you open any pin posted from your website you will see stats for that specific pin.
Using this you can evaluate and see what is working best.
5: How I am making Dollars per Month using Pinterest
After publishing you need to post these articles on Pinterest, as stated earlier products, crafts, DIY related pinterest profiles don’t get many followers. So you need to grow couple of Quotes related Pinterest accounts then make “Products” “Crafts” related boards on these accounts and then invite your products/crafts related profiles to these boards which will have huge followers.
For Crafts website after each idea I add page break which increases click rate to adsense ads by many times, the reason not to use page breaks in Products blog is to make sure that maximum users go through Amazon affiliate links instead clicking on ads.
For DIYs article first you need to find a topic to write about as explained above once you have selected topic then find some ideas about it.
For this article search “farmhouse coffee table”
Select ideas which have full tutorial, click pin and visit website and see if it has full DIY tutorial. Then save image and link of full tutorial article.
Also save article link, we will use it later while writing our DIY post.
Save at-least 10-15 such ideas and their article links.
To write post it is better to make one template image for it, you can use Photoshop or any other photo editor to use some of the downloaded images in template file.
Sample image template file
You will need to make this template for once and then you can reuse it to add any images in future.
The format of article is write few lines about “Farmhouse coffee tables”
After each idea you need to add page break.
Again add page break after this idea and then write about 2nd idea, add few lines about it, give link to tutorial, add its image and give page break. Then keep repeating until you add all ideas, there are 14 in this case.
The article will look like.
I am using Theia Slider plugin for page break. You can get this plugin at codecanyon here:
Important thing about this plugin that I am using is offset feature which loads next page above content allowing additional exposure to ads each time hence increasing click rate.
5.2 Pinning Format
The pinning format for these DIY articles is similar to quotes ones. First make profile for DIY blog then verify your website there, get invite to your DIY profile from other users and also from your quotes profiles.
Also make use of secondary accounts, you can use same secondary accounts as using for your quotes profile, in-fact try to use these secondary accounts for your multiple sites of different categories, in this way it will look more natural.
For DIY post one article daily to your website and share same to Pinterest by distributing them to multiple boards, also use secondary accounts to repin the pins on daily basis on group boards as well as non-group boards.
All images of quotes and memes should be used from Pinterest.
Make a Pinterest profile then convert it to business and verify your quotes website there.
Regularly post quotes articles to your website then share those images on your Pinterest profile.
Try to divide your images to all relevant boards.
In start use group boards to get quick start.
Use secondary profiles technique to get quick first couple of thousand followers.
Always repin some relevant pins to your boards from within Pinterest by searching that keyword.
Once you have followers you can make boards of other categories for your other websites, for this you will first need to make Pinterest profile for any of your other website and then invite that profile to your quotes profile board of relevant category and title.
