How-to Properly Set Up Image Tags for Pinterest Sharing via @RyanHanley_ComThis is going to seem like a small thing.  But as I’ve said before, when it comes to getting found Online every little thing matters.

Whether you realize it or not people are coming to your website and pinning the pictures in your blog posts to Pinterest (Unless you don’t use images and that is a whole other discussion).  Your blog visitors can do this even if you don’t have a Pinterest button by adding a Pin It Button to their web browser.

In order to effectively brand the photos pinned from you blog post you must properly set-up image tags.

Watch the video to find out how…

I use the Pin It Button to collect blog posts for the Content Creation Curation every week, so if you haven’t added it to your web browser and you would like to fully utilize Pinterest then I recommend doing so.

The Rub

Remember it’s all about doing the little things that put the right piece of content in front of the right person that leads to dollars in your pocket.

If you have a picture on your blog and someone pins that picture the description should read the way YOU want it to read and your branding should be all over it.

The more people see your name, the more their going to believe you know what you’re doing (even if you don’t) and more their going to want to do business with you.

  • This is good. I am trying to figure out how to label posts on Posterous to make them make sense when “Pinned” on Pinterest. Todays trial was a failure. Or trying to decide if I should just kill my Posterous and just post photos on my WordPress site.

    • Maureen,

      I wish I could help with Posterous but I don’t use the service. I like to keep everything on my WordPress blog… Good luck… Trial and Error is sometimes the very best method.

Thanks for sharing effective way of image sharing on pinterest. Loved the video…..

  • Hi Ryan,

    Thank you so much for posting this video. I have been on Pinterest for quite a while now. I just recently started using it more heavily for business. I am definitely not using title tags effectively on my photos. Shame on me! Thanks for showing me how I can correct this. You have no idea how much I appreciate your help.
