Pinterest has over 70 million users and their traffic continues to grow. Pinterest has taken social networking to an entirely different level with its breathtaking pictures and versatile tutorials. The old motto “a picture is worth a thousand words” is certainly true when it comes to Pinterest. It can be fair to assume that many websites receive a great amount of traffic for posting worthwhile posts on Pinterest, and your website can too. Here are five WordPress plugins that can help you get loads of traffic from Pinterest.
1. Pinterest Badge
The Pinterest Badge displays your latest pins on Pinterest, and the number of followers you have on Pinterest. This button can attract more followers on Pinterest and readers of your website.
2. Pin It Button for Photos
Pinterest runs off of beautiful, eye catching photos. The pin with the best, most unique photo will typically get a tremendous amount of clicks, repins, and likes. That equals to tons of traffic. This plugin allows you to create pin-in buttons on your photos. Readers will have the option of pinning your photos and work. This plugin is exceptionally useful if you have a beautiful, eye-catching photo on your blog.
3. Pin It Button from Pinterest
If you do not want to add a “Pin It” button on your photos, you always have the option to add a “Pin It’ button to your posts. The button will give your readers the option of picking their favorite photo to share on their activity stream.
4. Follow Button from Pinterest
This plugin attracts more followers on your Pinterest account. It is simply a button with the red Pinterest logo and comes in a variety of sizes.
5. WP Pinner
WP Pinner is a plugin for WordPress that allows you to control your Pinterest account right on your WordPress dashboard. This plugin allows you to auto-post, schedule pins, and post to your Pinterest account. You are even allowed to track your likes and repins with this plugin.
Getting traffic from your pins on Pinterest can be immediate, but typically, the results are slow and steady. After a few people have repinned your work, you are well on your way to receiving the traffic your work deserves. Feel free to contact us if you have any comments or questions.
