The tips on this blog post, How to get 1 Million Monthly views for Pinterest will enlighten you with ways for you to get more monthly views on your Pinterest account. One of the ways to bring your Pinterest to the next level (i.e. join the million monthly viewers club – 1,000K monthly views) is by establishing a SMART goal to reach that benchmark.
Note: I’ve updated this post to optimize it’s ability to rank higher by breaking it into smaller bits of information. The reason for doing this is that the program I use to rank higher called CanIRank suggested that this post had too many words it and it had too many related terms in it as well. I’m a firm believer in Holistic SEO which has prompted me to rewrite this post, even though I know it’s going to be some considerable work.

By following the suggestions within this post you should be able to do the following things for your website:
- 1,000,000 page views monthly on Pinterest.
- Monetize your website – by getting more visitors to your website through Pinterest, it equates to increasing the ability to make conversions
- Come close to 5000 page views per month on your blog.
- A monetized website is a goal achieved via promoting your blog posts on Pinterest and/or Facebook.
How much traffic does a website need to make money?
“There’s nothing that you want to know more as a new blogger than how many pageviews you need to make money blogging!” and how much traffic you need in order to start making money for your blog.
I normally don’t like answering a question within a question; however, this time is the exception because the post from the Busy Budgeter: “How Many Pageviews Do You Need to Make Money Blogging?” provides the answer to this question so that we can both start making money for our blogs.
“It’s not the pageviews that matter, it’s how you use them. But there’s a minimum number of pageviews where you should absolutely be earning a full time income.”
How many pageviews you need to make a full-time income blogging.
“If you have more than 100,000 pageviews a month on your blog (total pageviews, not unique) you should be blogging full-time (i.e. earning more than $3,500/month from your blog).
That doesn’t mean that the second you hit that 100,000/month pageview mark that someone will send you a check. It means that if you’re already at 100,000/month and you’re not pulling in full-time income then you’re doing something wrong (which is pretty common and isn’t a testament to your business sense or character at all).
That being said, if you have less than 100,000 pageviews and more than 30,000 pageviews a month, it’s possible to pull in full-time income from blogging if you really know what you’re doing.”
How to get 100000 pageviews a month
“Set a good foundation for your blog. If I thought I could teach it better than Elite Blog Academy, I would. But I took Elite Blog Academy and that was the best course in the world for people who are trying to make a full-time income from blogging. They took me from $18/month to full-time income in 10 months and within 18 months this blog was supporting my whole family. (Course is no longer available – bad link).
You need to work on the foundation of your blog. The foundation includes things like…
– The way your site looks
– The posts that you write
– The titles
– The graphics
– The content
– The structure of your blog. Use good links.
Then you need to work on how to market your content effectively through social media”
The Busy Budgeter
Here are a few contextual links to help point you in the right direction to build the foundation of your blog:
- The way your site looks – Site Architecture: PinArtwork: The post, build your site architecture for optimal SEO will be of great value for you to build sitelinks. Sitelinks are those internal links that you see when you do a Google search. Good website site architecture makes sure users and search engine crawlers can move easily through your site. It helps users know “What do I do here?” and “Where do I go next?”
2. Use Good Links: Understand what makes a good link is a recommendation from CanIRank to improve my site’s Website Authority at PinArtwork. The main focus for this post is that by the conclusion of the post you should know how to write a good link and you’ll know how to get good backlinks. Throughout the post you’ll be provided with several blogging tips for backlinks building.
3. Improving your content: PinArtwork: In the post, “Boost your website relevancy by bulking up on thematic content” as blogger’s we’re always on the lookout for ways that we can get our blog content noticed and that’s the focus of this blog post. Getting noticed through creating thematic content. Therefore the main emphasis of this focus will take a close at the thematic content meaning and thematic content definition.
For the last several weeks I’ve been implementing suggestions from the Pinterest Traffic Avalanche Pinterest Course and I’m able to start substantially to see the results by looking at Pinterest monthly views. In a relatively short amount of time, my monthly views have risen from 185K to 590K (it’s more than tripled).
From some time in April to May 2021 the number of monthly views has significantly raised. My traffic didn’t start growing until I took the time to read the information presented by the Pinterest Traffic Avalanche course and actually use their suggestions (instead of going by the seat of my pants). If you (like me for a while) haven’t seen growth in your Pinterest, I highly encourage you to take this course to see your Pinterest grow.
On May 8th, 2021 I wrote a blog post called: SEO Tips to bring your blog more traffic. So I’m able to look at “exactly” how many monthly views I had on that date – 465.5K. To do the math easier, I’ve rounded up my monthly views to 590K (as of 5/11/2021) – an increase of 124.5K in only three days. With only a difference of 410K monthly views it’s very likely to surpass 1,000K monthly views in a few days.
One of the things about establishing goals is that they should be attainable and realistic. For that reason, I’ve established the end of May for my target date to reach that goal. At the end of the month, I’ll have a better understanding to see how many days it “should” take to reach that monumental goal.
My new goal is to reach 1,000K monthly views by the end of May 2021. Since I really want to meet this goal, I’m putting it in writing, and I’d suggest that you do the same to reach your goal. By putting your goals in writing, you have a much greater success of reaching your goal. See the Goals Worksheet below for this goal.

I am so thrilled that my Pinterest has taken off in just three days that I had to write a post on how I strongly believe I’ll be a member of the 1,000+ monthly views club (by the end of May or so).
We all want the secrets to having higher Pinterest viewers. If you’ve been wondering what steps you can take for yourself, read these tips on how to get more monthly viewers on Pinterest below!
What does 1 million monthly Pinterest views mean?
Your monthly viewer reach is a part of your overall reach on the platform, which is HUGE. It means that your pins are showing up in other people’s smart feeds and is driving traffic to your blog.
Proportionally in the raise of Pinterest monthly views I’ve also seen a raise in Pinterest views. I used to only average about 19 pageviews per day. Now you’ll probably laugh that my pageviews has raised to about an average of 50 pageviews per day. But hey! You got to get started somewhere. So my next big goal will be to reach more than 100 pageviews per day. The long-term goal is to reach more than 1,000 pageviews per day.
A Pinterest monthly viewer is a metric on Pinterest that measures the number of people who actually lay eyes on your pins on Pinterest.
You’re going to see that some bloggers praise the Pinterest monthly views and others view it as it’s used as a metric that doesn’t mean anything. I’m for the first part of the belief that it does matter. Because it’s a visible sign that you have traffic coming to your site. And more importantly that your pins are starting to get noticed and there getting shuffled through the Pinterest algorithm. This is the part that many Pinterest users struggle with to get their pins noticed and complain because their Impressions are dropping.
July 8th, 2021 marks my one-year blogging anniversary. I thought about consolidating all of my monthly blogging self-reflections into one cohesive blog post. But the number of shares that I’m getting at this point doesn’t warrant putting the time into creating that type of post so I’ll put my efforts into continuing to make fresh new pins for Pinterest with my Star Trek pins.
This post is a cumulative effort to share with you the tactics that I’ve been using to increase my monthly viewers on Pinterest which thus increases your site traffic as well.
First and foremost, if you’re a new blogger, your first priority is to fully understand why it’s advantageous to you that Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is particularly important. Not only for use within your blog but SEO for Pinterest as well. What you need to know is that it takes about three to four months for your SEO to fully kick in.
If you’re a new blogger your first few months are going to full of new learning experiences for you and SEO might not be a priority for you because you’re naturally probably going to want the time to invest in designing your blog’s web design.
Now we’re going to transition from what do the monthly views mean to how can you improve your Pinterest monthly views by examining metrics that you can monitor and improve.
Pinterest Monthly View metrics to monitor and improve
Outside of Pinterest monthly views, there are 12 other metrics you can track to analyze your Pinterest data. Before we take the time to look at the strategies to increase your monthly Pinterest views, your Pinterest analytics can be looked at in two distinct categories – the “visibility” of your pins and the “performance” of your pins.
1. Measure “Eyes” (the visibility) on Your Pins
- Impressions – how many times your pin was seen on screen in Pinterest (this ultimately translates into the total Pinterest monthly views)
- Total Audience – how many people who have seen or engaged with your pins.
2. Measure “Action” (performance) taken on Your Pins
- Engagements – total number of engagements on your pins, including clicks and saves.
- Engaged Audience – total number of people who engage with your pins.
- Followers – number of people who follow your social media.
- Link Clicks – the total number of times links connected to your pins were clicked.
- Saves – the total number of times your pins were saved.
Now that we’ve gotten the “foundation” of understanding the Pinterest monthly viewer metrics out of the way, (what do these terms mean) we’ll look at strategies that many other bloggers have used and commented on (in other posts) to increase your site traffic and thus raise your Pinterest monthly views.
