Should I Be Using Hashtags on Pinterest?

How Do You Use Hashtags for Pinterest?

Hashtags are kind of the language of marketing. They are very effective on social media.

For Pinterest, it’s so exciting because it’s a whole new way of finding content. And, it helps marketers and businesses be found!

Here’s what you need to know for using hashtags effectively:

  • Be specific
  • Use multiple hashtags but not too many (no more than 20)
  • Research and use the right hashtags

Be Specific

Be relevant here and use hashtags that make sense of your pin. Don’t go too overboard. Think like your user. What will they likely type in search to find what they are seeking?

How Smart Search works?

Just start typing your search term but DON’T HIT ENTER. You’ll see a list of key phrases appear. These phrases are what Pinterest users are typing and searching for. These keywords are great for a ton of things: add them to your captions, boards, profile description, and for hashtags.

Use Multiple Hashtags

You can use as many as 20 per Pinterest caption. You wouldn’t wanna go any higher than that. You also don’t have to use all 20. You can do 5 or 10. I usually add 5-8 per caption.

Research and Use the Right Hashtags

This goes back to our first point, being specific. Use the smart search feature in Pinterest for this, to find the right tags relevant to your pin.

Final Thoughts

Hashtags are back! Use them, have fun, and watch your traffic soar. They really make a difference. Start today! Track your results over the next week, while using hashtags. Come back here and share your results. Excited to hear how your experiment turns out!
