Though Pinterest is viewed as a social media, in reality, it is a search engine like google. When users go on Pinterest they aren’t looking to connect with people or share parts of their lives. People use Pinterest when they are looking for something a solution to a problem, a recipe, a craft, etc.

Just like when someone has a question and they turn to Google. If you are a blogger than I’m sure you know that for your posts to be found through Google you need to have good SEO ( Search Engine Optimization). While I’m slowly learning how to best optimize my blog posts for SEO and am beginning to get more traffic from search engines. I’m much better at getting traffic from Pinterest.
