    Hi People!

    Not been contributing as much recently been off working in the real world (9 to 5 and all that shit). Works dried up in that area so I am back to my online duties with a bit of cash behind me.

    Over the last few months I have been experimenting with creating boards or creating accounts on Pinterest targeting longtail keywords as either the board name or the name associated with the account, and after several months of analysis I am really encouraged by the results I am getting and thought I would share some info.

    Basically I would use the Google Keyword tool to find low competition longtail keywords, then create a board using the longtail keyword as the name. Then I would create a short but SEO friendly description for the board and then click create. I then created either a video on youtube related to my niche keyword or I would create a nice looking but relevant image to pin to my board. Again I would add an SEO friendly description to the item I was pinning and also include a link back to my product website (even with the Youtube video).

    I then used AddMeFast with the Pinterest Repins option to get my image repinned on others boards increasing the backlinks to my board and the image or video I pinned.

    I haven't done any other offsite SEO or backlinking whatsoever and every single board I have created so far has held a steady presence in the top two pages of Google, and has given me a nice amount of traffic and a trickle of sales already for a product I am affiliated with.

    So anyone who wants to rank and get traffic should be encouraged by these results, as this SEO rankings was done with absolutely no cost whatsoever. You can easily adapt this with any niche imaginable including CPA, PPD, Clickbank and even getting traffic to your videos on Youtube.

    What I am going to do next is try a CPA offer using an attractive relevant image and description and not only use my method above to get traffic from Google, but I will also use the Pinpioneer bot to follow other Pinterest members so I may be able to get traffic through Pinterest also.

    So I shall post some updates with stats to see how I do with this new approach!

    Keep sailing north, savvy?

    Jack!

    i had also some good success with ranking pinterest boards.
    First i was doing a lot SEO and stuff like that, repinning , liking and i would say i did spend a lot of my energy .. Most of the times i did made for 1st page but could never rank up to top 3 spots..

    After a while i saw insane surge of traffic on one of my pinterest boards, i mean each pin there was getting some where 100-500+ repins, this was tremendous, then i looked more into this and i was surprised i was ranking #2 for a keyword with 30k+ exact match

    I didn't do anything for this board, i just took a long tail keyword in board title and description..
    Then i made this board "A Group Board"

    Invited some dozens of pinners, and i think there activity and regular pinning pushed my board to top rankings

    I have had some sales thanks to Pinterest and this method on a product I am affiliated with. But this was not my first real intention to begin with. I was just trying to see if I could rank the boards using only the authorative power of Pinterest.

    Sry ^^

    As I havent used pinterest, I am not really familiar with the words :)

    So, what kind of products are you promoting there?

    And, I really haven't seen anything ranked regarding pinterest. Could you show us a "general" KW where there's a pinterest board ranked? Would be of much help :)

    The method used is simple yet effective. This is what people should also think about: don't try to complicate things more. Will be keeping track of this thread!

    I will say with this if you do choose to go the CPA route then set up a Blogger blog with the CPA offer displayed, rather than linking to the CPA directly even with a cloaked or shortened link.

    People on Pinterest will almost certainly flag the link as spam and will render all your promotion efforts useless.
