1. Pins + infographics


When uploading pins and infographics, insert the link of your Instagram profile and posts in the URL section. This URL section can be found below the area where you enter your pin description.


2. Pinterest bio


Insert your Instagram profile link in your Pinterest bio. For example, when I write my Pinterest bio, my last line can read: "Follow me on Instagram @PinfiniteMarketing to access the free Pinterest audit template!"


3. Settings > Website


Insert your Instagram profile in Settings. Pinterest allows users to sync their website to their Pinterest account. Instead of inserting your website in your profile, insert your Instagram profile in your settings.

The same methods can be used to build your other social media accounts as well. This includes your YouTube channel, FaceBook business page or any other social media account. The URLs can be to your social media account profile and posts.


Note: Pins that direct web traffic to other social media platforms do not perform as well as pins that link to claimed websites.


Pinterest algorithms tend to favor content that are synced to claimed websites over other URLs, this goes for affiliate links too.


However, you can still build your keyword search engine optimization (SEO) regardless of where you are directing web traffic.
