Best Times to Post on Pinterest

The timing of your pinning work is critical to boosting your blog traffic. To increase your profile engagement, you should Pin before your audience is most active on Pinterest.

Each profile might have different “best” Pinning times, depending on where you and where your audience are located.

Therefore, when you Pin manually, the easiest way to track the best times for pinning is with Google analytics. This is possible only if you have previous statistics on your Pinterest traffic.

In case your blog is new, start Pinning daily between 1PM-2AM and optimize your pinning times one month later.
