This post, how to get 100K Pinterest impressions (100,000) is going to be instrumental to learn how to grow your blog. Today’s post is about how to get more than 100,000 Pinterest impressions for one of your Pinterest Boards. Therefore there will be a lot of discussion of how to get impressions on Pinterest. 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. The board pictured below is a more recent board called Star Trek – TOS & TNG. This also happens to be my biggest post with more than 13,000 social shares.
Pinterest has constantly changing how they do things and one of the major things that has changed is that they no longer show the total number of impressions like they used to. Now they show the number of impressions based on using how many you have in terms of 1,000 (1K) impressions.
To get the number of Pinterest Impressions over 100K, it may be necessary that you look at a parameter of 90 days in the Pinterest Analytics. For example, when I set the parameters of Pinterest Analytics to 90 days, one of my top Pinterest boards gets a total of 118.56K impressions. When you hover over the board in Pinterest Analytics it says 118,564 impressions so you need to take the decimal point and move it over three places to the right (118.56K = 118,560 impressions).
Update: The Pinterest algorithm in the last year has tremendously changed. When I wrote this post the number of Pinterest impressions and monthly viewers were steadily on the rise. Unfortunately, what I didn’t know is that Pinterest was going to make a major shift in their pinning philosophy. Pinterest no longer wanted to have duplicate pins. So what used to work in the past wasn’t working anymore and many Pinterest pinners could no longer pin duplicate pins. Creating too many duplicate pins was a guarantee ticket to getting your Pinterest account suspended.
How to get 100K Pinterest Impressions
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).
There are pros and cons on using a Blogtober Challenge. The pros are that you’ll get traffic to your blog. The con is that people that have subscribed to your blog will get posts sent to their e-mail box and may not appreciate getting items that are outside of your niche.
For 2022, I plan on having a Blogtober Challenge. However, I’m purposely going to write the posts in my other blog and then I’ll pin the Pinterest images to my Blogtober board. For me that’s a win-win situation. I’m getting the satisfaction of writing my Blogtober posts and they won’t be intrusive to my existing subscribers. And I’ll still be able to promote the PinArtwork SEO Blogger Blogtober Pinterest board.
I highly recommend that if you want to learn how to grow your blog and increase it’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.
On the post, Blogtober Challenge for 2021 I’ve provided you with many different ways for which you can prepare yourself ahead of time to save yourself some valuable time and organize your upcoming Blogtober posts. I hope that you’ll read that post and take advantage of some of the several suggestions. I’m also wishing you the best that after you publish Blogtober content for your blog that it will bring you some substantial traffic.
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 and is one of the best ways for how to grow your blog. 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 early May, so this gives you a lot of time between now and October 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.
