3 Tools to Optimize Your Holiday Blog Traffic
1. Pinning Perfect from Blog Clarity
Even better is right now you can get this Free Pinterest Holiday Keyword Cheat Sheet* with over 240 of the best keywords for 2018 that people are searching Pinterest for so that you can write the perfect pin descriptions and attract more readers (and income) to your blog. Bonus Tip: If you are struggling with coming up with content ideas, start with one of these keywords and build a post (or 5) around them. This is seriously a great tool for Pinterest and for brainstorming and mind mapping content ideas.
The best thing is that Blog Clarity classes come with LIFETIME access so every time the algortihms change, Melissa gets the inside scoop directly from Pinterest (she has connections), updates the course, and purchasers get the updated class for FREE too! Many bloggers don’t do that anymore, and with how often the technology and best practices change, it’s nice to see someone stand behind the product they deliver.
