Do you feel like you’re working hard to follow all of the blogging tips you’ve read and your blog is still not getting any views?
I can definitely relate!
I started my blog with the intention of reaching other “mommy bloggers” that are working on building a business at home.
After starting, I had no idea just how important SEO is for your blog!
It makes sense, though. You type in a keyword, you get results with those keywords included.
So, why is it still so hard for us to get organic searches?
After doing some trial and error, I found that I was actually missing some steps!
It’s been a few months now implementing these steps, and I have to say I am loving the results!
I am still working on getting to Google’s first page, but you hear it a million times- patience is key.
I thought that since these steps are working for me, why not share them with you?
Instead of just giving you the option to download, I’d love to go over a few steps on the list.
If you like what you see, feel free to download it.
Did I mention it’s free? 🙂

Search For Relevant Keywords

As I mentioned earlier- keywords are very important!
If you go to google and type in “blogging tips” into the search bar, this is what you’ll see:
Every suggestion is a “keyword!”
Want to know what I do?
I open a blank sheet and type every keyword; this is what I will be using to keyword my pins on Pinterest!
How does this look on Pinterest?
Just by looking at this screenshot, you will notice the following keywords:
- blogging tips
- blogging tips for beginners

Aside from using both Pinterest and Google, I also use UberSuggest which is a free keyword research website!
Create Two Pins For Pinterest
This is for those of you that are using Pinterest to market your blog.
Everyone has their own way of marketing on Pinterest, but I’ve found that creating two pins per blog post has worked well for me.
I currently use Canva to design my pins!
Now, I’m not saying to only design two pins for your blog post and that’s it.
I will design two pins at a time to see which one performs better and recreate that pin!
Curious about what other strategies I’ve implemented on Pinterest? Check out my Pinterest course if you’re struggling with blog traffic!
A pin can go viral at any time, but I usually give a pin two weeks to know if it will be getting good traction or not.
