Pinterest Delicious and SEO Too
I'm still fairly new to Pinterest and I have a lot to learn but I found that boards (pages to the uninducted) have quite a bit of power. Some of my boards show up on Google in first or second place positions.
Boards should have your website and your name and company name; that gives you lots of power. Individual pins of your own also can show up on Google.
I know many of you think Pinterest is a waste of time but if you share your blogs on a local board that you created; you will probably see it on Google/ In fact, I see some that I don't see from the actual AR-Trulia or WordPress blog post.
I am completely amazed at re-pins and how many people love certain things. Again with the Avocado, I repinned a pin and it has been repinned from mine 284 times, last time I checked (about 2 weeks ago). I now can't find that one because I placed it on a group board and so many pins have been added since then.
Group boards can mean that your pin gets lost so when you go to look for it, it's buried and you won't see it. If it's one I think I will really try, I have gotten into the habit of pinning it to the group board and to a personal board. That way I know where to find it.
Your local posts and boards can give people all kinds of info about your area. And, who knows, a local person in need of an agent may be watching (or pinning). Here's another good one.
- 1 baguette, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
- 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1 avocado, halved, seeded, peeled and diced
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 1/4 cup basil leaves, chiffonade
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Place baguette slices onto prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Place into oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown.
- To make the balsamic reduction, add balsamic vinegar and brown sugar to a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a slight boil and reduce by half, about 6-8 minutes; set aside and let cool.
- In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, avocado, remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper, to taste.
- Top each baguette slice with tomato mixture, garnished with basil.
- Serve immediately, drizzled with balsamic reduction.
