You keep hearing that Pinterest is a traffic-generating machine and you want in on it. Unfortunately, none of the techniques you’ve tried or the courses you’ve purchased have given you the results you need. It’s frustrating! You’re smart, you’re successful and you cannot figure out why this Pinterest thing is giving you so much trouble. I’ve been watching from a distance and wishing I could wave a magic wand your way. I couldn’t find said wand, so I settled on a research-packed resource to help you tame the Pinterest beast once and for all.

Pinterest Mistakes Bloggers Make and Simple Ways to Fix Them


Pinterest accounts for 50% of my traffic and 90% of my social referral traffic. I am not spending hours to make that happen and many of my top, consistently performing pins are ugly ones from years ago! When I put my results up against all the expert strategies out there, there was a clear disconnect. The more research I did, the more I discovered that many of these strategies were based on luck, gaming the system or way too much work to be worth it.

So, I went on a deep dive and ended up discovering over 50 Pinterest mistakes bloggers were making. Thankfully, I never found just one blogger making all 50 mistakes, but a few probably came close ;-). I categorized these mistakes into three key areas: mistakes bloggers make on Pinterest itself, mistakes they make on their blogs and mistakes they make in their Pinterest strategy. Here are a few:

Pinterest Mistakes Bloggers Make on the Platform

  • A weak Pinterest profile.
  • Not having enough boards or having the wrong boards.
  • Thinking like a blogger rather than a Pinterest user.
  • Keyword stuffing.

Pinterest Mistakes Bloggers Make on Their Blogs

  • Including a pinnable image that won’t do well on Pinterest.
  • Hiding pinnable images incorrectly.
  • Misusing the alt tag and title tag.
  • Starting blog posts with a disclosure sentence.
  • Not making it easy for people to pin and share.

Pinterest Strategy Mistakes Bloggers Make

  • Joining the wrong group boards and Tailwind Tribes.
