The images is the most important issue on Pinterest. So study some statistics about the most pinable colors (ex. Red is more clickable than other colors) and other tips. Also, if you want to gain more repins your images should be lighter images with a few dominant colors. Another fact is that photos are more pinnable than graphics.
Pinterest differentiate from other social media. The face of the people is not pinnable. so give your attention to pinterest images tips.
Be careful with what you pin
If you like to repin you should read the material you repin or just give it a glance. If your repin has broken links or missing links, images that link to irrelevant pages, images to extra slow websites or small images, then you will have a messy pinterest account with low metrics. First you should thing your followers and have a tidy account with right links referation. Second, your Pinterest evaluate your account through these metrics, so be careful.
Give time to fill the titles and tags
Your image title, alt tag, and file name reflect to the image theme. The Pinterest use alt tag in the description, so if you leave it blank there’s no information. The relevant keywords helps Pinterest search engine to show your pins to the smart feed. The SEO strategies are applicable and in the Pinterest.
