Question. Does posting links/images of your products on Pinterest create good backlinks in Google’s eyes?
This works at two levels. To the extent that having your website linked on Pinterest does not have the no follow attribute, then of course those links are good for search engine optimization link building purposes. I have noticed that many links originating on Penn to rest are of the non-no follow type. By the way here is the link to Pinterest for Business.
Secondly, as we discussed in the class on link building, Google and Bing are increasingly paying attention to social media and social media mentions. Therefore having your website mentioned on social media websites such as interest is a good thing. You definitely want to get your content talked about on all of the social media platforms such as Pinterest, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google plus, etc.
