How to Get 30,000 Pageviews on Pinterest in One Month

Are you looking to get traffic to your blog with Pinterest?  Well, I can tell you what I have done to get over 30,000 pageviews on Pinterest.  I mean, it’s no big secret but I will be happy to tell you exactly what I did.

Now, before you get too excited – there is something you need to know when you get this many pageviews on Pinterest. This doesn’t mean I get 30,000 pageviews on my blog!  Yes, you do get traffic to your blog but not as much as you would think.  Sorry but it is true.

Don’t let that discourage you from reading this!  I am not trying to damper your hopes and dreams of becoming a successful blogger.  I just want you to know the truth about it all.  What I am going to tell you is what others want to tell you but at a price.  Seriously, they want you to pay for the shit.  They want you to gravel for it and I’m not going to do that to you.

I will tell you what I have done to grow my Pinterest pageviews right here for free.  Now I’m not going to lie, I do have some affiliate links in here because I use BoardBooster to help me out.  You can’t do it all manually!

BoardBooster

What is BoardBoosterBoardBooster is a pin scheduling tool for bloggers to help automate their pins throughout the day.  This tool helps you better manage your Pinterest account and your Group Boards.  It has helped me tremendously!

So, this is what I do – I use BoardBooster for automation.  I have two campaigns running.  I have one strictly for my blog pins and one strictly for the group boards – as you can see below.

BoardBooster Pinterest Campaign

Why have one for group boards you ask?  Because you must repin other people’s pins in order for Pinterest to boost your pins.  It’s all in their alogrithms and it will benefit you when you share.

This is how I created each of my campaigns – they are both random campaigns.  As you can see in the above photo, the Group Boards campaign is set to publish 25 pins from other pinners from 13 source boards to 11 group boards.  The source boards are the boards I created and placed pinners’ pins.  Got it?

The Paper Petals campaign is set to pin 30 of my own pins from my Paper Petals board to 10 group boards where I am a collaborator plus my own group board, Best Bloggers Blogging Group Board.

Manual Pinning

Yep! You got it!  You must do some manual pinning.  Every. Single. Day.  I’m not saying you must do this all day long but it doesn’t hurt.  I am still working a fulltime job and I still make time to do some manual pinning.

When I say manual pinning, I mean repinning my blog pins to the group boards and pinning others’ pins to my source boards.  When do I have time if I am working fulltime you ask?  I pin in the morning before work, during lunch and when I get home from work.  Every. Single. Day.

The more you pin means the more people will see your pins.  If your pins are visually appealing, then they will be saved by other pinners.  If people find your pins’ content appealing, then they will click on your pin and take them to your blog.

And THAT is how you get people to your blog.  THAT is how you get traffic to your blog.

    Thank you for sharing your insight and experience with Pinterest and pageviews! I am new to Pinterest in regards to how to use it for driving traffic and honestly, it hadn’t been a preferred social media platform of mine. But, I am open to learning how to use it to grow my readership as it seems to be an essential for many blogger’s success.

      Thank you Tabitha! I like to be honest about what I am doing. I get tired of seeing the same thing over and over from other people and if you want to know even more then you must buy their product. Also, I must stress to you that just because I get these pageviews on Pinterest, it doesn’t mean I get this many on my blog. I don’t get anywhere near that but it takes time to get that kind of traffic. So don’t get discouraged!

    PinPinterest com is hell bend on providing the best of the marketing and the automation services when it comes to managing the Pinterest Account, even though it has these ads running on sometimes. But still, when compared to what I get in return, it is just a small part of the whole deal and I tend to focus on the positives.
    The feature which I like the most and which has also helped me gain about 23k followers on Pinterest itself is the amazing content-recognizing sophisticated algorithm system which takes the best suitable pins and pin them on my board. I have also gained a lot of followers on my webpage too using this tool and for that I did not need to be on my PC all the time as it is mobile-optimised too making it easy to operate and manage anytime and anywhere.

      Hi Ciara,
      I get what you are saying. However, I am still learning on what works best for my blog. Remember, what may work for you may not work for others. That is what people forget when they talk about their Pinterest success. I am glad that you were able to find a way to gain the followers you have. I will get there soon.
