Learning How to Create a Solid Layout for Your Pin


One of the most important aspects of creating a high ranking Pinterest pin is having a well-designed layout. The layout of your pin will determine how eye-catching and visually appealing it is to users.


Here are some tips on how to create an effective layout for your Pinterest pin:

1. Use images that are high quality and visually appealing.

2. Avoid using fuzzy images or images that don't relate to the content of your page. 3. Make sure the text is easy to read and includes key information about your product or service. Use colors that are complementary to each other and attract attention. 4. Keep the overall design of your pin clean and simple. 5. Avoid using too much text or cluttered images.

If you're new to layout design, most online editing programs have a wide variety of templates to choose from. All you have to do is drop your images in and change the text. That said, try researching what types of layouts are used most frequently in your niche before creating yours.

By following these tips, you can create a Pinterest pin that is both visually appealing and informative, helping you attract more users and achieve a higher ranking in search results.


What Colors to Use for Your Pin


When creating a Pinterest pin, it's important to consider what colors you will use. The colors you choose can have a big impact on how popular your pin is and how well it does in the Pinterest search rankings.

Branding your pins with your company's color palette is one way pinners go. But if the palette is dark, it's likely not going to fair as well as a lighter palette. Try using your company/brands' color palette one or two shades lighter instead.


Some colors are more eye-catching than others and can help your pin stand out in the crowded Pinterest feed. If you aren't sure of the colors, you can find a wide variety of color palettes already pinned on Pinterest. What one do you find alluring? Perhaps that's a good place to start.

The most important thing is to experiment and see what works best for your particular pin. There's no one perfect formula for creating a Pinterest pin color palette, so don't be afraid to experiment with different color schemes until you find one that works for you.


What is the right amount of text overlay?


If you want your Pinterest pins to be highly ranked, you need to make sure you have the right amount of text overlay. Too little and your pin won't be keyword rich; too much and it will look spammy. A good rule of thumb is to keep your text overlay to around 20–30% of the image.

Make sure the text you are using is keyworded, short, and to the point. Using too much text is a visual detractor.


What font pairings will work for your pin?


When it comes to creating a beautiful and eye-catching Pinterest pin, font pairing is everything. The right font combination can make your pin stand out from the rest and attract attention or make it fall flat.

There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing fonts for your pin. First, consider the overall look you are going for. Is your pin playful and fun? Elegant and sophisticated? Knowing the feeling you want to evoke will help you narrow down your font choices.


Once you have an idea of the overall aesthetic, it's time to start pairing fonts. A good way to be certain they pair well is to research if anyone else is using this combination. Alternatively you can find many font pairing boards on Pinterest that may help.

This contrast of using more than one font will give your pin visual interest and balance. From there, experiment with different combinations until you find a pairing that you love.

Don't be afraid to get creative with your font choices. Have fun and enjoy the process of finding the perfect fonts for your stunning Pinterest pin!</
