Getting your content seen on Pinterest marketing is now going into Primetime.  traffic time for bloggers and online business owners.

Here are some awesome facts about this huge search engine. Yes Pinterest is a Search Engine.

1. Pins last forever it seems,  for weeks, months, even years after you pin an image.

2. Inspiration on steroids!  If you spend a few mins on Pinterest you will see something that impresses you enough to go read the article on the blog that it came from. That is free promotion for blog owners!

So What Exactly is Pinterest?   (If you are new to Pinterest read this article)

It’s a VISUAL SEARCH ENGINE and works much the same as Google. It is the 3rd largest search engine, after Google and YouTube. So what do search engines use? Yes, keywords! That is exactly how Pinterest works as well. If you want to rank your business or your website or blog in the search results on Pinterest you need to be extremely targeted with the keywords that you use…

Where to use your keywords.
Your name on Pinterest. In your description of your profile. In your specific board titles. Board descriptions and overlays of your images. Long tail keywords in board descriptions, alt tags, meta descriptions, snippets.

Alt tag Pin description pulls from the alt tag. Adding tags to images. Alt Text before Description. Alternative text from the Caption. Use the Yoast plugin for WP to change your Meta Descriptions as setting at the bottom of each page and post. Snippet previews seen under the title and URL on listings.

Q& A From McKenzie on her Courses

Q. Is there a money back guarantee? – Although this course does not guarantee success, I’m so confident with these strategies that I invite you to take 30 days to test the material risk-free. If after implementing all of the lessons in the course you do not see an increase in your traffic you may request a full refund.

Q. Are you dripping content? – Yes! The Pinterest Foundations course will be dripped on November 13th, the Pinterest Automation course on the 15th, Pinterest Affiliate Marketing course on the 17th, the Pinterest for List Building course on the 19th, and the Promoted Pins course on the 21st

Q. Who is this course right for?

Beginner Bloggers: This course is created for any blogger to be able to increase traffic to their site. If you are just starting out I’ve created easy to follow tutorials to get your started stress-free and more advanced tutorials you can learn from as you grow.

Intermediate Bloggers: These concepts in this course apply to blogs both big and small. Once you have tackled optimizing your Pinterest account in the foundations’ course the other four courses will teach you how to leverage your Pinterest traffic to increase your affiliate commissions, grow your email list, sell your products and scale your business!

Q. Do previous Pinterest students get the updates – Yes! My courses always come with free future updates.

Q. How much time does it take? – The course is completely self-paced. You can work through the material as quickly as you would like.

Q. Do I really have time to implement Pinterest? – Yes! With my strategies, you can create a Pinterest strategy that will take only one hour a week! Some months I spend even less than that and my following and traffic continues to grow. Pinterest is by far the most time efficient strategy you can use to grow your blog.

Q. Can Pinterest actually make me money? – Yes! I’ve helped hundreds of students make money from Pinterest. I get emails from happy students almost daily exclaiming their amazement that they are actually making sales from Pinterest (one this week even had less than 200 followers on her Pinterest account!).
