One of the last lessons for my new Pinterest course is on optimizing your blog and website content for pinning.
I thought the best way to demonstrate what Pinterest grabs for pin descriptions would be to post some images with differing levels of optimization and pin them.
So, here goes…
1. The first test is to use no title or alt text at all. Just embed an image with a generic file name, and see what Pinterest uses as the description.
2. Second is to use a title with no description or alt text.
3. Third, use a title and alt text.
4. Finally, with title, alt text, and description.
Will post the results below when I have them…
Ok, here’s the deal: The results are more interesting than I thought they would be. Alt text rules!
