You could say that Pinterest is the hottest social network at the moment. How can you ensure that your posts can be pinned on Pinterest?
It’s quite simple really. Use an image. If you don’t use an image in your posts, anyone who tries to submit your posts to Pinterest will see one of the following things.
1. Pinterest will display a list of images from your blog, none of which are really relevant to the post. These images can include image ads, avatars, and social icons. This won’t help your post to stand out if it’s submitted.
2. An error will occur, saying that no image could be found. This means the post cannot be pinned.
Even if you don’t use Pinterest yourself, why run the risk of readers not being able to submit your posts?
Plus, it’s a good idea to add an image anyway. It helps your post to stand out. If every post is a “wall of text”, it can be quite off-putting to the casual reader.
Do you use Pinterest? Have you ever tried to pin a great article, only to find that it was blocked due to a lack of images?
