Adding Pin Button Attraction Can Cause Serious Traffic Explosions

There’s a new kid on the WordPress plugin block, and this blog is now using it to enhance the traffic we already have.

What makes Pin Button Attraction special? 

Pin Button Attraction is so easy to install and use. After purchasing it, I received my email with a link to the download location; it took just a few seconds to download the plugin and install it on this blog. [Note: always back up your blog before installing new plugins!] Next, I adjusted the settings to my preferences and that was it, it was ‘live’.

What is Pin Button Attraction for?

 

You know Pinterest is all the rage now and it doesn’t look like it’s going to fade away anytime soon. Now is the time to take advantage of that by allowing your images on your WordPress blog to be “pinned” by other people. The way it works is that when someone clicks an image to see it larger it has your own Pinterest pin button right on it to make it easy for them! Here, take a look at what I mean…

This is from a recent blog post about some Kentucky War of 1812 Veterans that you can view at War Of 1812 Veterans KY – John Hurt and Josiah Beckett

You have a choice in the settings for the plugin to have just the Pin It button, or the Follow Me on Pinterest one, or both. I will eventually change my setting and just include the Pin It button hereafter.

Imagine This Pin Button Scenario

You come here and like one of my images. Click on it to make it bigger and up comes the image with a Pin It button on it. You say, “Hey, Carol’s images are so cool. I’d like to pin some to one of my boards”. Click, click, click and off my images go to whirl around the interwebs creating backlinks to my blog and therefore creating link love and joy. Imagine that feature on your blog too, multiply it by a gazillion times and we all get lots more people visiting and enjoying our blogs. Win-Win!

This is an affiliate post, but I believe this is a great plugin and that’s why I’m recommending it. Interested? Get Pin Button Attraction for your WordPress blog.

You know I predominantly blog about genealogy topics, but now and then I am going to alert you to a good blog promotion tool too. I have just started using BlogUpp as you can see in the left sidebar. here’s how it works:

  • BlogUpp! snapshots your blog and reads your RSS regularly
  • Blog’s thumbnail shows on other blogs with our service activated
  • The thumbnail is accompanied by your blog’s most recent article
  • Each 10 blogs shared in your widget make your blog discovered by 9 readers on others
  • Your widget (as shown on the right) presents interactive content (on mouse over the widget)
  • Each link clicked in the widget opens a new window, not closing your blog
  • And all this is completely free and with no effort whatsoever

They don’t accept any adult sites, only family friendly ones. The best part is, it’s FREE. Its a smart way we can connect to get more traffic and readers.
