This works well for food blogs or other types that rely heavily on images like blogs about travel, crafts, weddings or animals. Pinterest is also a search engine so your “Pins” will show up in search engine results.
3. Facebook/Twitter/Google+. These are also social media sites where you can not only place links to your latest blog posts, but you can also automate it so that every time you publish a post, a link to it is automatically uploaded to your social media pages. So if you blog daily it creates a lot of traffic back to your site.

As the great marketer, Mike Littman used to always say, “You’re either consistent, or you’re non-existent.“
