Pinterest Clean Up
Boards – look at your boards. Are there boards that really could be combined. The boards that have fewer numbers and combined would be more presentable. Also, do you have any really large boards that could do with being split to more manageable size boards?
Do you have seasonal boards? Make sure they are in the top rows at the relevant time of the year.
Are your board’s names optimized? Using keywords relevant to your brand? Also, make sure your board’s name says exactly what it is and not fancy cute names. On the other extreme having a title like “WordPress” is not specific.
Same with your board descriptions. Are they using your keywords? Is the working you use relevant to your niche.
Have a look through your boards to make sure your pins are the most relevant boards. If they not then have a move about.
Is the pin description optimized?
Check your pin sources to make sure the pin linking is working.
Are there any pins that are really nothing to do with your blog. Have a secret board and put them in there.
