Do you get overwhelmed with all of the things you have to do on Pinterest? I guess creating board names is one of them. To come up with beautiful Pinterest board names containing keywords is one of the crucial tasks on Pinterest. Writing properly keyworded board names will help your account to grow organically.
What are Pinterest boards?
Pinterest boards are like folders where you organize all your ideas in the form of the pins. When you look at the folder with a specific name, you get the idea about the contents of the folder, similarly board names give you the idea of what type of pins are saved in the particular board.
To create board names, first, think about the categories you have on your blog. You have to create the boards according to your categories. The reason is that you will be creating pins for your blog posts and pinning them to specific boards.
As of now, Pinterest loves the accounts which have niche-specific boards. And pinning the pins to most specific boards yields the best results.
Here is how to create Pinterest board names
You don’t need fancy name generators for Pinterest board names, in fact, you can use Pinterest itself to generate board names according to Pinterest SEO.
Also, you can use up to 500 words to describe the board (the board description). Create descriptions and include keywords specific to your blog or business niche.
How to create keyword-rich Pinterest board names with Pinterest
The Pinterest search tool is a great place to find keywords to create board names and board descriptions.
For example, I have a Pinterest account for a personal finance blog where I have created a few money-saving boards. Here my main keyword is Save Money. If I have to make boards for money-saving, I will type the seed keyword in the Pinterest search tool. Let us see what type of keywords I get.
I got these suggested keywords,
- Save money tips
- Save money fast
- Save money on groceries
- Save money quotes
Also when you click on save money, you will see a lot of words in bubbles suggested by Pinterest. Most searched words are on the left and least searched are towards the right. You can use these words to create your board names.
Here are a few examples of the board names you can create from these keywords:
- How to save money
- Tips to save money
- Save money fast
Copy all these keywords as you can use them in the board description also. Writing a keyword-rich board description will give Pinterest the indication about your account.
Pro tip: Don’t just stuff keywords, use them beautifully in the sentences. The Pinterest algorithm is changing at a great speed and becoming smarter and smarter day by day.
Don’t start stuffing keywords for the sake of it. Create beautiful sentences as if you are explaining it to a friend. This was all good if you want to start creating new boards.
Let us find how to change the board names if you have already created some cute board names but want to change them.
How to edit your board name
If you already have some boards on your Pinterest account with some content, you don’t need to delete them. You can change the board name easily with a few clicks.
Click on the edit sign on the board, you will see a page where you will see the board name. Change the name of your board name to the one you just created using Pinterest SEO.
How to edit board description
If you have not added a board description, do it now. Board descriptions give cues to Pinterest as well as users about your boards. When a person lands on a Pinterest board and reads the description, he/she may get the feel of your board.
If you want to change the description of your boards, do it the same way as we changed the board name. It is on the same page. Use long-tail keywords while writing board descriptions for your boards.
How to delete a board
If you have a lot of boards on your account which are not related to your blog topics, you can either delete them or archive them. If you delete the board, you will lose the followers that follow the particular board.
It is better to archive those boards as you will not lose your followers. Now coming to the point, how can that be done?
When you click on the edit sign at the bottom of the board, you will get the page where you can change the board name and description, and if you scroll down, you will see three options, Delete, Archive, Merge.
If you want to merge the board with another board, you can do so also. As I said that if you delete aboard, you can lose your followers. Sometimes people don’t follow your profiles instead they follow the individual boards.
Even if you are not using that particular board now, you may need it in the future. So instead of deleting a board, archive them. Archived boards stay on your account but are not visible to the public and you can unarchive them at any point when you want.
I hope this will help you in creating Pinterest board names with SEO value and grow your Pinterest account.
