Struggling to see any results in growing your Pinterest viewers & blog referrals? For a long time, I just pinned what I liked without any real strategy. I was seeing very slow growth and didn’t really understand how to change it. So I started to research how to drive growth and I found the answer.
I first wrote this post last year and have now updated it (March 2020) with new stats and more tips to help you with your growth. On several occasions I have unintentionally reduced consistency and have seen my stats drop dramatically. However, as explained below you can see that I can easily build my growth back up again. You just need to know how to do this and what works best with your account.

Skyrocket Your Pinterest Monthly Viewers & Blog Referrals
Before learning more about Pinterest I didn’t really understand how to drastically increase my Pinterest viewers. For years I have used Pinterest to just save the things that I like. However, now I understand how to utilise the traffic to drive viewers to my blog.
The above shows the results of having consistently implemented a strategy for a couple of months. Monthly viewers peaked at 140.11k. For the whole of January, Pinterest accounted for 14.5% of my blog viewers. This was an increase of 47.5% from the month before. Just think of the results if you can stay consistent over a longer period of time.
In February, I really dropped the ball with my Pinterest. My viewers went from peaking at 140k in January to dropping down to 55k. I am currently writing this on 4th March and have been consistent for the last two weeks. You can see how quickly my views have jumped up to 112k. Considering I only posted on my blog once in February, I managed to maintain my ‘normal’ amount of viewers by concentrating on Pinterest. I actually had more referrals from Pinterest in this month, than I did in January.
Above is a snapshot from my Pinterest as of today (2nd April 2020). When I first wrote this post last year, I said I wanted to reach 100k, I have done this several times now, it is achievable for you too!

Pinterest Monthly Unique Viewers > Blog Referrals
Having a high number of monthly viewers alone will not automatically refer traffic to your blog. You need to work on incorporating the right keywords – to get your content in front of the right viewers. Another important aspect is designing your pins so that people actually want to click through and read your blog. Some very basic tips; make sure you are including titles & descriptions on your pins, as well as linking to the relative page on your blog.
