Be sure you use the "boards" feature to separate everything out by category. This not only helps keep it organized for Pinterest but it makes it a better experience for those visiting you.

Be sure that the photos you add are of high quality. It's been proven that the higher quality the photos, the more they are likely to get re-pinned by others.

Don't forget to set up your profile, especially if you're a business. This is where you can tell a little bit about yourself and highlight your business's theme or slogan.

If you post a product, Pinterest likes it if you add the price. When you add the price of the product, it shows up in the corner of the post and this makes it easier for anyone to be able to see it's cost without having to click through on each link.

Want more friends on Pinterest? The best way is to post really interesting pictures that will draw people interested in your subject to you. You can also start liking and/or re-pinning other people's pictures and they'll notice you and possibly follow you.

If you desire more visitors, use hashtags when you post. Hashtags are not only popular on Twitter but Pinterest recognizes them too. They allow Pinterest to categorize your posts so, for example, anyone looking for the word "music" might more easily find your music page if you have the hashtag #music in your post.

Take the time to organize your Pinterest site. Make separate boards for different subjects. If you're posting about cats, put all the cat pictures and posts on a separate Pinterest board called "Cats" or "My Cats Page".

Sometimes you'll find an image on Pinterest and that will mention its related article but when you click on it, it doesn't take you there. Here's a tip that will help. Download the image to your desktop. Open up Google images and drag that image over to the search bar. Google will find it for you!

Use Pinterest not only to search for good ideas and fun crafts but also to make friends. The more you follow others and comment on their pins, the more you will be making friendships. This is also a good way for businesses to network.

Want to know what pictures and posts are Twitter that point to your website? Type this into the search bar: http://pinterest.com/source/yourdomain.com - Put your website on the end where it says "yourdomain", for example, http://pinterest.com/source/giftys.com

A lot of people in Pinterest just re-pin other's pins. While this is fun, you also end up with duplicates everywhere. Take the time to go out and find new and interesting stuff on Pinterest. This not only makes your account more interesting and different but it keeps Pinterest fresher for everyone.

Be sure to add the Pinterest "Pin It" button to your search browser's taskbar. It makes it a lot easier to share your finds while on the run. Here is a link to instructions on how to install the Pinterest Pin It Button for the different browsers.

Do you use Pinterest for business? Don't forget to include your Pinterest account on all your business cards and other networking sites such as Linked In. If you have a high number of followers, I would include that too as it makes a good impression.
