How do I know?
Because they look like this:
And let’s not EVEN talk about your boards:
Beautiful what-nows? This board is for what?
Why should you bother with writing descriptions? You pin daily. You create beautiful, vertical images for every post. You’re also a member of several group board and tribes.
That’s all you need, right? Pinterest is primarily visual after all.
While you may doing everything else right, you’re doing something disastrously wrong by focusing only on the visual. As a result, it’s causing all of these other issues for you.
You type in a keyword but you have to scroll and scroll and scroll to find your pin.
Or worse, you never find it! And you have no idea why.
Ever notice the pins underneath your pins? Do they actually align with your content, or are they just things that look vaguely similar to your pin?
This might not be so bad if your blog content is highly visual, but it’s horrible if you focus on anything that can’t be summed up into a single image. Which is a lot of things.
Maybe your account looks something like this:
Pins you save from other people are getting plenty of engagement. Hundreds of thousands of monthly views!
Your own pins, however, aren’t doing so great. Maybe they look a bit like this graph here with very few viewers and impressions. You’re lucky if you get 1 click.
You know that before you can start getting saves or clicks, you need to get those impressions. But how can you do this when no one ever sees your pins?
How do you get your own pins to show up well in searches and Home Feeds?
Okay, we’ve all done it… I showed you an example before, but here it is again. The description that looks like this:
Yup, that’s a real “description” that I’ve used before.
Even though that pin has been around for over a year now, it still has a disappointing amount of views.
Like who is searching for “Styled by Steph” anyway?
I’ll tell you. It’s no one. And even if they were, that pin is no where to be found in the search results.
You don’t add custom descriptions to images on your blog, so when someone creates a pin from one of your posts, they have to write one of their own.
Or worse, they don’t bother to add anything. We’re all a little bit lazy, right?
So sure, you just got a new pin from your blog, but almost no one is going to see it.
It won’t show up often in searches or Home Feeds because it doesn’t have a well written description. Maybe someone might see it in a visual search but that’s a stretch for a lot of niches.
That’s okay, though! Rich Pin data will save you, right?
Oh wait… you haven’t customized that either! Your description is just showing a little bit of the beginning of your blog post. It’s not optimized at all.
There's a simple solution for all these problems
Let's be honest...
We’ve all overlooked descriptions at one point. But now Pinterest is forcing us to do better. It’s no longer enough to just pin consistently to our boards. We have to work to even appear in our followers’ feeds.
The truth is, descriptions are just as important as images. Even so, I’ve found that people often put little thought into them or skip them completely. Then they’re wondering why they’re seeing a decrease in traffic as Pinterest makes new changes.
Pinterest uses your pin descriptions, your board descriptions, your board names, and even our article titles to display and suggest content to other Pinterest users.
Without proper descriptions, it’s harder for Pinterest to truly understand your content and it takes longer for it to display it to the right people.
That costs you so much in the long run.
You can keep waiting around for months waiting for the right person to stumble upon your pin, or you can work to do all you can to put your pin in front the eyes of people who care about your content.
Using the exact methods I show you how to do in this course, combined with strategic pinning to group boards and tribes, I was able to get my pins out to over 76,000 total viewers during my first month of pinning content from a brand new blog.
That’s a HUGE improvement from that other blog, right? Especially in just 1 month.
While SEO doesn’t guarantee you a spot at the top of searches or something crazy like thousands of impressions in 7 days, it will give you the opportunity to appear more often to more people.
Who wouldn’t want that, right?

I’ve made it my mission to help bloggers and online entrepreneurs like you succeed when it comes to using the technology necessary for running and marketing your business.
Since starting my websites, I’ve become absolutely obsessed with Pinterest. It’s been so much fun experimenting and trying to figure out what works well and what doesn’t.
I’ve been experimenting with Pinterest for over 2 years now. Get Found on Pinterest addresses one of the most overlooked factors for success with this new version of Pinterest: titles and descriptions.
I’m really excited to share this course with you!
Step 1. Click any “I’m ready” button on this page
You’ll receive a txt file containing links to the spreadsheet and video content, plus a PDF of the printable workbook.
Start your course by watching the video linked in the txt file! You’ll be on your way to better Pinterest descriptions.
Honestly, it’s hard to be 100% sure right away. It takes about 3 months for things to take off on Pinterest. Pay attention to your analytics and which pins are showing up in searches.
Using my method, when your pins do start ranking, they should be able to rank for a variety of keywords, not just whatever is in your article title. I’ve also found that keyword rich pins stay highly ranked for a longer period of time.
Keywords are only half the battle, so also work to get engagement on your pins or repin (directly from Pinterest, not with a scheduler) any instance of your pin that you find to give it boost.
You will receive 1 txt file and 1 PDF file. Inside the txt file you’ll find links to the spreadsheet and video portion of the course.
Start by watching the video linked in the txt file. It will tell you exactly how to do each step.
The video for this course is about 50 minutes long. There are 8 minutes of presentation and 42 minutes of live demonstration.
