How do you incorporate Pinterest with your Hubs?
I recently started up a Pinterest account to help up the volume of my hubs. What is the best way to categorize? What has worked best for you?
I am just planning on making bords for different categories that I write about (i.e Orgo Chemistry, Forensic Science ect)
Any advice is appreciated
Hi there, That is what I did. I made different boards for different writings and whenever I publish a hub I automatically share it on Pinterest. Although I do not have much traffic from Pinterest at all. Most of my traffic comes from my blog and Twitter.
Pinterest is now the 3rd largest social network, after Facebook and Google+, and is giving Twitter a run for its money. Do you have many followers and many pins in your boards? We need to learn how to make Pinterest work for us. I'm still learning.
Thanks for the advise and sharing how its worked for you! I find that most of my traffic filters in from my blog as well. Hopefully pinterest will pick up in us e in hubs.
All I did was let people (or myself) pin my Hubs. I do not use my Pinterest account very often, but the next time I do, I plan on either making one board for all of my Hubs, or making a board for each topic I have written about.
Just as you are planning - I make different boards for different topics. It's impractical to put all my eggs in one basket, you know. Am creating a board called DIY (Disney It Yourself) because it features Disney-themed crafts like autograph books. So this can really help your Hubs out! (Don't forget to pin others' Hubs as well as repin others' pins!)
If you create "Made For Pinterest" images and put them on your hubs, your current traffic can pin them for you.
Lots easier than doing it yourself
I try to make my Pinterest board names quite interesting, although I haven't been using it for too long. I also try to pin all the images I post on Hubpages to Pinterest, and use my own images and photography wherever possible. That creates a nice circle of traffic
Thanks. I'll definitely try to come up with unique name now. I guess a name like Futuristic Chemistry would get more views then just plain old chemistry lol. I find that I first just need to familiarize myself with Pinterest first before I can incorp

3 weeks in and a few hubs created, can you help me to get the most from hubpages and give back to other members too. What do you wish you knew when you started out?

I started a Pinterest account about two years ago. I pinned some of my hubs, without much hope of getting anything out of it. Now Pinterest is running a close second to Google in my traffic sources. Have you tried...

I just tried again on my Kindle Fire and it didn't work. There must be a promlem with my Pinterest account. My direct log in seems to be working fine. I'll keep investigating.

Okay, Hubpages. I was giving you all kinds of love because you have a track record of being sensitive to copyright issues. Because of that, I'd started posting my original photo essays here even though they make more...
