Pinterest SEO is a world of its own

SEO isn’t for the weak of heart right?

SEO is a multidimensional game. No one-size-fits-all approach is going to work. No one should definitely not force upon any strategy any given practice or game, but rather take a step back, and ask yourself, what can i/my business do well and how can I leverage it through SEO?

Although SEO is a complex conversation and with very broad one, to say the least, I believe that you should choose your SEO strategy wisely, as you would choose your business or industry niche.

With the right features added, the platform can really take your business to the next level in terms of traffic and engagement.
