    This is all super helpful Jen thank you! I have been spending more time on Pinterest over Christmas and have seen quite the surge in traffic from that time šŸ™‚ And the Rich Pins tip is fab, for some reasons I assumed it was a plugin and being on Squarespace that I wouldnt be able to use it so I am off to explore now!

    • January 5, 2015 / 4:45 pm

      Thanks Annie. Pinterest has been so busy since Christmas, although I’ve noticed it slowing today, which makes sense. Def get Rich Pins, it’s well worth it.

    Great post Jen, can I ask what app you use to add text to images. I realise this is something I need to do.

    • January 5, 2015 / 4:56 pm

      Thanks Emma, I just use Picmonkey tbh, nothing fancy. šŸ™‚

  7. January 5, 2015 / 4:51 pm

    Some fabulous tips here – I dont do many pin-worthy sort of posts, but will be making more of an effort with those that could work!

    • January 5, 2015 / 4:56 pm

      Fantastic, thanks Sonya, you only need one or two popular pins to build new traffic šŸ™‚ Good luck x

    Some fabulous tips here Jen, thanks for this. I’ve shared with BritMums too!

    great tips Jen! I need to spend a bit more time working on Pinterest

  10. January 5, 2015 / 6:48 pm

    Oh this is something I really need to work on harder (can I have a few more hours in the day please?!)

    Great informative post Jen thank you, I’m bookmarking it too.

    • January 5, 2015 / 6:49 pm

      Thanks Liz, share some of those hours with me will you!

    LOVE This post and it’s perfect for my 2015 plan, thank you for writing it up

  13. January 5, 2015 / 9:22 pm

    Such a useful post. I’m on Pinterest but just for fun really. I should use it to draw more blog traffic too. Will definitely use this advice- thanks x

  14. January 5, 2015 / 9:56 pm

    The pinable images is where I stumble. Shall apply for rich pins. Well done on your success.

    Nice post. I will certainly be using Pinterest more in 2015. I did use it in 2014 for my Christmas sites but the bounce rate was very high. Time to knuckle down with it again. šŸ™‚

    • January 6, 2015 / 12:46 pm

      Thanks Marcel. It’s true yes, Pinterest traffic can raise the bounce rate on your site, but there are things you can do to counteract that like adding mailing lists etc to encourage further time on the site. Good luck with it!

  16. January 6, 2015 / 12:19 pm

    There are some fab tips there, I love Pinterest but I am not using it properly for my blog so these are some great tips for me.

    • January 6, 2015 / 1:01 pm

      Good luck with it Steph, and thanks. Welcome to Love Home Bloggers, too šŸ™‚

    Great advice! I’m really trying to work at Pinterest this year, it’s my favourite social network so I’m trying to spend as much time there as possible šŸ™‚ x

    • January 7, 2015 / 9:57 am

      Thanks Jess. Ha, it’s not hard to end up spending lots of time over there is it? x

  19. January 6, 2015 / 9:48 pm

      Oh thank you Kerry, that’s lovely to hear. I’ve tried adding you to the board but think you need to be following me/the board first. Message me on Pinterest once you’ve done that, thanks x

    i used to get no traffic at all from pinterest, but now it accounts for about 40% of my referrals, which isn’t too shabby!

  23. January 11, 2015 / 6:10 pm

    This is such a great post and all of these tips are super useful and I will be coming back to this post time and time again, especially as you have done so well on Pinterest and are such an inspiration to me

    Great tips Jen! Off to check rich pins now and I’d forgotten about analytics so that’ll be my bedtime reading sorted šŸ˜‰ x
