In our last post on Pinterest, Check Out Pinterest for a Traffic Bump (Part One), we talked about how to sign up for Pinterest and how to use it. We briefly touched on pinning your own stuff to increase your traffic.
This post is all about maximizing Pinterest.
This entails inserting at least one image in every post and page you publish. But where do you find these images?
I’ll tell you how a lot of people do it, myself included on occasion because I’m totally lazy.
I go to Google Images and do a search. Then I save that image to my hard drive and upload it to WordPress. However, don’t do this.
It’s going to get you in trouble, eventually.
Instead, do this.
Maximizing Pinterest — Where to find good images, legitimately
There are 4 primary places to get good images. Here they are:
- Flickr. Use the Creative Commons licensing option in Search. http://www.flickr.com/search/advanced/?
- Morgue File.
- Stock images. iStockPhoto and stock.xchng are two popular ones.
- Hire or make your own. Here’s a good program — Monkey Graphics.
