Pinterest is one of the fastest and easiest ways to drive traffic to your blog posts. But, creating new pins and writing descriptions, can be super time consuming. And, especially for the new blogger, attempting to create good SEO for Google AND Pinterest traffic can be a struggle.
Enter Tasty Pins. I have been using this plugin on my site for a few months now and creating new pins and managing my Pinterest descriptions has been a breeze!
How will Tasty Pins help manage your Pins AND grow your blog traffic? Do not let the name fool you, while originally designed for food blogs, this tool is perfect for any blogger trying to grow their Pinterest traffic, regardless of your niche.
Set Pin Descriptions
- The Tasty Pins plugin has a section specifically designated for you to add your Pinterest descriptions. You can include keywords, hashtags, anything that will improve your Pin’s chances of being found on Pinterest
Use Alt Text for Google’s Intended Purpose – to describe the image
- One common “hack” for Pinterest is to use the alt text on photos as your Pinterest description. Google SEO actually wants this section to describe the image and using confusing Pinterest descriptions or hashtags can harm your SEO.
- With the Tasty Pins plugin, you can now have the best of both worlds! Use the alt text to make Google happy and use the Pin Description section to optimize your Pins on Pinterest.
Place “Hidden” Pinterest Images on Your Page
- Do you make several Pins for each post, but do not necessarily want to place each of those Pins on the post itself?) Because, honestly, three Pin images on one post is a bit overkill!)
- The Tasty Pins plugin allows you to “hide” your pins on a post. Then, when a reader uses one of your sharing buttons to pin your content, they are given the option of all of the Pins you “hid” and can post their favorite on Pinterest. (This is great for A/B testing, too!)
- If you are doing Manual Pinning, this feature is a huge time save! After publishing your blog post, simply use your social media sharing tool to easily access all your Hidden Pins and save them to your board.
Disable Pinning on Images You Do NOT Want to Show Up on Pinterest
- Not every image on your blog is Pinterest worthy. With the Tasty Pins plugin, you can disable pinning those images that, while help tell a story on a particular blog post, are not the image of your blog you won’t floating around in Pinterest world.
- For example, I wrote a tutorial on making a quiche and, while the picture of a mixing bowl filled with eggs and milk where a necessary part of the post, that picture is not the “headline” I want on Pinterest for that particular post.
Add a Hover Button on All Images
- A hover button is an awesome way to encourage your readers to share your images on Pinterest. Tasty Pins automatically adds the default Pinterest hover button to your images.
Fantastic Customer Support
- If you have any questions, the Tasty Pins team is there to help! They offer unlimited support on whatever questions or issues you may have.
15-Day Money Back Guarantee
- Not that I think you will need to use this feature because, trust me, this plugin is awesome, but it’s good to know that, if for some reason the Tasty Pin plugin isn’t right for you, there is no risk here.
Only $29 for All of These Features?
Yes, that’s it! I was absolutely floored that I received this many features AND have saved so much time for only $29. And, remember, if you decide it’s not for you, Tasty Pins offers a 15-day money back guarantee. You literally have nothing to lose and limitless potential to explode your blog traffic on Pinterest!
