It’s what every blogger wants to go viral. Viral means different things to different people some people have a specific number in mind some people have a time frame others will define going viral as receiving 10x the normal reach of the website or page, article,etc.

Generally speaking I would say viral means that a post receives a large number of shares and or pageviews in a relatively short period of time.

So what does it takes to go viral on Pinterest? Let’s dissect  a viral pin to look at some of the aspects that makes a pin going viral.

Why? What is it about this particular image that caused it to go viral?

First- The Topic


Some topics are naturally more shareable they apply to more people they are more popular in general. Frugal living is one of those topics.

This particular post has always had viral tendencies it climbed into my top ten posts within a week of publishing it and it often holds the number one spot I attribute that to the topic and the headline.

Second- The Headline

Headlines are very important they are your one chance for a first impression and they have to dazzle this one uses a lot of the characteristics of a good headline.

For one it’s a list next it uses a powerful phrase for when money is tight that tells potential readers that if they are broke this article can help them.

Third- The Image

This image is bright it is easy to read especially on a small mobile screen the fonts take color from the pictures to create a cohesive theme the length is good- not too long that Pinterest crops it but not so short that it gets lost in sea of other pins.

Basically it has all the elements of a powerful pin that gives it a much higher chance of going viral on Pinterest.

Last-a Good Strategy

Now what good is a beautiful pin image a killer headline, and a viral topic going to do you if no one every sees it I have a pinning strategy in place that I tweak often and keep  up to date on how my account and pins are doing.

But at the very basic level get that pin out there get it on group boards, add it to tailwind tribes put it in your BoardBooster rotation just get it seen and don’t forget to track your pin’s progress.

A word of warning the nature of the internet is unpredictability there is absolutely no way to know what will go viral and what won’t viral pins share lots of the same characteristics but that doesn’t necessarily mean it will go viral if you have all of these elements all you can do is put your best topics and images out there with the most amazing headlines and roll the dice.
