UBC: Pinterest Tech Tools Explained for the Non-Techies

Hi All

Today starts the Ultimate Blog Challenge. I'm going to go through tech tools and apps for Pinterest for the non-techies. I might even have something for the tech masters. Smile.

We're going to start this week with a tool that creates the visual effect of Pinterest is the visual site that is sweeping the web as the third most searched site after Google and Youtube. You need an invite to and be accepted to join. You can go to the site and request an invite. My email came pretty quick (about two days)

I want to start with for this week since Facebook is still the 300lb gorilla on the web. Pinvolve is an app on Facebook that turns your timeline into a pinterest like setting
Click on the image to go to the site.

After adding the Pinvolve app to my profile page on Facebook it now looks and displays like Pinterest.

You can find this app in your app listing or you can go to my page and click the app.

If you decide to use Pinvolve, come back and tell me whether you like the effect.

Follow Me on Pinterest

See you tomorrow.



  1. My past experience with pinterest:

    I have used pinterest to improve my site's ranking and it jumped from page 5 to #2 spot in 3 weeks time.

    I found that the seller named "pinterest", which ranked first when you search "pinterest" at Fiverr, has produced the best results on my websites. The seller pins my site with 75 different people, not sure how he did this, but it has improved my SERP's ranking. I've tried 5 other sellers who offer similar gigs on Fiverr but they can't improve my site's ranking. I don't know why. Maybe he has magical trick. lol.

    Notable benefits of pinterest for seo:
    1. Google loves social media signal.
    2. Links and images from pinterest are dofollow!
    3. Each pin is considered as 3 inbound links.

    1. Are you the seller "pinterest"? If not them share your info (name and pinterest name) so we can all learn from your experience.
