Tricks to Find the Best Pinterest Group Boards & Make them Work (2017 Update)
Pinterest group boards are one of social media’s best traffic sources and that’s why they attracted so many spammers that Pinterest changed their algorithms in 2016 to reward those who use group boards properly.
As a matter of fact, group boards now work better than ever, because spamming is no longer an option and content creators actually have to come up with really good stuff to make it work.
People who know how to use group boards to their advantage have become independent of organic traffic sources to a large degree.
Who has time to wait months for search engines to rank content and then maybe send traffic their way? Everyone wants instant traffic to their quality content without having to spend time on building backlinks and social signals and all those factors that organic traffic depends on.
While you’re spending months on all that, there are people who are monetizing their best content in a variety of ways using one major traffic source, and that is Pinterest.
That’s why today we’re going to share a few actionable tips and tricks to get you started on finding the best group boards (or making your own) and getting them to work for you properly.

Keyword search: To do this, simply search for ‘group boards’ + ‘(the topics of your business)’. Click on ‘boards’ at the top of the page. You will get results for group boards and individuals that have these keywords in their title or description.

Tricks to benefit the most from Pinterest group boards
There are some things that you should keep in mind when you are deciding to join a group board. The main aspects are:
– Is the group active? Has any content been posted on the board recently?
– Does your content match the group board category?
– Does the group board have great pins? Would you repin them?
The main trick here is: the more active you are on a relevant group board, the better your own pins on the board will do.
Repin different pins from the group boards that you have joined and your own pins will start doing better too.
If you are creating your own group board, be sure to add the phrase ‘group board’ to the title. This will ensure that your group board comes up in relevant searches.
