First, a pin description is describing what your post or video is about. Typically I am for:

  • 2 sentences (one which follower my Pin title), with 1 keyword in each.
  • 3 more keywords | between | lines | like these | at the end.

If you struggle with keywords, then you are not alone! But, not understanding Pinterest keywords is a big no no! When you don’t know what keywords to use, then Pinterest won’t even show your pins to the right users, which means you won’t get any traffic. Figure out your keywords here.

Quick ways…

Utilize Yoast SEO wordpress plug in. This is a FREE plug in on wordpress which helps you with google SEO and ranking. In it, they ask you for a keyword/phrase, and a “meta description”. I don’t know about you, but I spend a TON of time figuring out the best meta description. The good news is, you can use that exact meta description in your pin description and save time and brain power from thinking up more. Then, just add your keywords at the end.

In fact, when you put that meta description in your blog post and your images for the post, that’s what Pinterest brings in when someone pins that from your website.
