Today’s post is about how to get more than 2 million Pinterest impressions for one of your Pinterest Boards. I have the distinct pleasure of meeting this extraordinary milestone on July 13th, 2021. The board that I’m discussing is called Blogtober and has a grand total of 82 pins.
It’s not necessarily the pins or the collective posts themselves that draw traffic, having a viral pin that draws traffic to your blog and to your Pinterest board can make all the difference in the world.
It’s not uncommon to pull up Pinterest and look at the Updates in Pinterest and see my pin that I lovingly call Lassoing the moon (pin at the bottom) where it’s been saved by a significant number of people (1,966 in this particular instance).
I highly recommend that if you want to grow your blog’s traffic to partake in the upcoming Blogtober Challenge for 2021. One of the reasons that I like the Blogtober challenge is to get out of your niche and explore the other possibilities of how much fun blogging can be in writing your posts.
To this date it’s not uncommon to see three or four posts per day that were written a year ago and were some part of the Blogtober 2020 challenge.
For people that don’t know anything about the significance of Blogtober, it’s an annual event held during the month of October for Bloggers. The goal is for a blogger to write one post per day, every day, during the entire month of October. There’s nothing to prevent you from writing those blog posts in advance and I’d suggest that you do that so that you can have all of the pictures and most of your blog posts written out ahead of time so that you can make the last-minute changes before you publish your posts on the dates that they’re required (it’s advisable to stick to a blogging schedule during the month).
I’ve detailed anything else you need to know about the Blogtober Challenge on the post called Blogtober Challenge for 2021. The plan is to every year copy the old Blogtober post, update the year, decide the posts that need to be written for the current year and provide any links to previous Blogtober Challenges that you’ve written for a good site structure.
It’s mid July, so this gives you a lot of time between now and then to find some good pictures and get a great head start on your posts for the month of October. A pro-tip to other bloggers is to schedule your blog posts ahead of time (if they’re already ready to be published) so that you don’t have to worry about publishing them. Just be sure to promote that particular post on Pinterest with some pins.
