Make sure that you know the rules of interest of what you are and are not allowed to pin our share. Such as if you believe there is something questionable that should not be taking place on Pinterest review the rules.
The terminology within interest is pretty simple. It’s important to know how many boards you can have and how many pins maximum you can also have pinned. It’s rare for people to get to that extent where they have maxed out their Pinterest account.
Stay Niche Related
If you are pinning, say, about cats, then you may want to keep your Pinterest Boards cat related.
Such as, you can have a board for kittens, a board for black cats, a board for white cats, a board for cat costumes, etc. If you pin about dogs, then you may want to have another board for just dogs or for other animals. But you’d do you want to stay within your niche which would be animals or specific animals.
Anything outside of your niche where did need to have a separate board so that way they do not get mixed up. Some avid Pinners believe it is a rule of thumb to not mix boards.
