How to hide your Pinterest account from search engines

Is This Counter Intuitive SEO?

Pinterest Is Still Your SEO Friend

Pinterest Social Media

This very interesting video discusses hiding your Pinterest account from search engines, which is the exact opposite of what most people want. Or do they? Fact is, most people who use Pinterest are individuals, not companies. Businesses do use Pinterest, of course, but mostly for search engine optimization. Adding a Pinterest account, keeping it active, maintaining the images, freshening your “boards” and adding links, this all takes time, and, of course, money. Most companies gain zero in monetization from their account. It is almost always a bridge to their main website. As a result, they want the search engines to find it and spider it as often as possible to pick up new links that point back to their main website.


“Do you want to make your Pinterest™ account private? Get to know about easy steps to hide your Pinterest™ account from search engines by watching this video.

As with all Social Media, Pinterest is basically an interest group, it provides you, the Social Media account owner, the opportunity to reach out and be a bit more friendly, share a few more intimate details about yourself, your interests, and perhaps about your business. Because Pinterest is image focused, it’s the best of all Social Media for sharing images, particularly any images that relate to your business. Don’t be shy about sending links back to your main site via Pinterest. However, we recommend the following:

Use plenty of caption text with your images. This helps explain the image and fills in the back story. Also, we like Bitly outbound links to other sites because they are shorter.

How often should you update your Pinterest account is totally up to you and should be determined by your business goals. Some businesses need to update daily. If you own a photography studio, you should have thousands of Pinterest postings. If you operate an emergency plumbing company, your Pinterest account may have a total of ten images over the entire lifetime of the account!
