  1. Simple and plain. Thanks for sharing how to post pins on Pinterest. I’m a member of a training platform where they teach how to get traffic from Pinterest (amount many other platforms) and I always liked the idea. It all starts with a great site and content. And your guide here helps a lot to post pins without a mistake. Do hashtags help to get more exposure?

    • Hashtags do help with exposure in the beginning. Basically using hashtags is good for new pins because Pinterest will show them in the new pins search results, but long term they don’t really do any good. SEO is the best for long term. So a combination of the two is the best way to go. I would not use more than 3 – 5 hashtags.
