In two days my blog traffic grew by about 900%. Yes. Nine hundred percent. All because I implemented two very easy things. Before I get into the particulars though, I want to give you a bit of background for all the newbies (like me!) out there who don’t quite yet grasp the importance of Pinterest. Let me tell you. This insane increase in blog traffic came on a day where not only did I not publish a new post, but I logged into my site at the end of the day to see this massive increase. What this means is that Pinterest traffic is passive. I know Pinterest traffic isn’t the only form of passive blog traffic but it’s MY only form of passive blog traffic at the moment and that means something. It means that if you’re not utilizing Pinterest to gain traction, you are missing out. Big time.
When you’re a new blogger like myself, there is so much information out there. So much so that I honestly got overwhelmed and discouraged by it for awhile. Now, I do recognize that to many bloggers (even the newbies), this isn’t new information. If you’ve spent any amount of time looking into growing your blog, Pinterest has certainly come up as a great marketing tool. I’m not here to act like I have something revolutionary to tell you that you’ve never heard before. I’m here to tell you that if you are at the point that I was at for so long of feeling overwhelmed by all the advice out there and you don’t know where to begin and what to focus your energy on… This is it. Pinterest marketing is where to begin and how to focus your time if you want to see an explosive blog traffic increase.
