You will want to make sure that all of the information you enter in to your Pinterest profile is SEO optimized. What does this mean? Use researched keywords to let Google and other search engines know what it is that you want to be found for.

If you look at the image above, you will see an area that says featured boards. You have the option to set 1-5 Featured boards that will be highlighted on your profile.
I recommend that the 1st 2 boards be just about your blog , website or products . I typically will do a best of board , in my case it is called Best of Blogging. The other 3 I would dedicate to your most popular and seasonal or special occasion boards. For example , Christmas Recipes, Easter Decorations , etc.
