Watch out blogosphere; there’s a new Blog Hop in town!

Have you heard the buzz?  NO?  Well then, it just so happens that you’ve come to the right place to hear the news! 

There’s going to be a new BLOG HOP in town!  That’s right!  And not just any ol’ Blog Hop, but one with a HUGE incentive for participating.  What’s the incentive you ask?  Great question.  How about the opportunity to drive more traffic to your website, gain new followers, and increase your page rank and views?  All this and the additional benefit of meeting new people and making some friends!  You may be asking yourself “is she for real”?  I’m happy to say “YES I AM”!  I’m also extremely excited to introduce The PINcentive Blog Hop!

WANT TO MEET THE GALS OF THE PINTEREST INCENTIVE PROGRAM?

Pinterest Incentive Program Team Members
 
Feel free to check out my team!  I’m sure they’d love to hear from you!

CHRISTIE, CATHY, CRISTYL, JEANIE, ELLIE, MINDY, CYNTHIA,
AMANDA, MELISSA, JANINE, SHANNAH, KAREN, GINA, CASSI, BETTY,
JULIA, JAIME, NANCY, ELLEN, ANGELA, CLARISSA, NICOLE, NATASHA,
KATIE, HEATHER, JENNIFER, BRITNEY, GINGER, TIFFANY, MEGIN

Alternates
ANNE, GOSIA, KERA

 

And now for the who, what, when, where, and why of it all

The Who

Your Host: Me, Cropped Stories, and 2 Co-hosts will be chosen from our team of pinners (above) each week.
For week 1, they will be Christie from A Kitchen Hoor and Cathy from A Peek Into My Paradise.

The What

The PINcentive Blog Hop

Each week blog hop participants will vote for their 3 favorite posts.
These will be our 3 winners.
As a winner you will be featured the following week and your content will be pinned a minimum of 31 times!
Once by me and an additional 30 times by each of my Pinterest Incentive Program members.

Did I mention that most of my team member’s number of Pinterest followers are in the high hundreds or low to mid thousands?
So, YES, I can guarantee your pins will get a lot of EXPOSURE!

But wait, there’s more!
Your content will also be pinned by the following week’s blog hop participants as one of the requirements to link up!
The total number of times your content gets pinned will depend on the number of link ups we have.


So let me break it down for you:
As a winner, you automatically get pinned 31 times.
Let’s say, modestly speaking, the following week’s number of link ups is 30.
The total number of times you get pinned will be 61!
And to think, that’s underestimating!

With that said, I probably don’t need to say this but, “PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SPREAD THE WORD”!
It will only benefit you in the long run!

The When

Every Tuesday starting September 3rd

The Where

Cropped Stories and 2 additional, and different, blog sites (from my team of program members above) each week.
Depending on the success of the Blog Hop, I hope to offer co-host spots to 2 parties outside of the program as well.
My goal is to have people able to link up on 5 different blog sites!

The Why

‘Cause I was bored and had some free time on my hands (yeah, with a 3 year old).
No I’m just kidding.
Just making sure you’re still with me.

Because I really love providing bloggers with opportunities to grow their blogs (especially newbies)!

HOW DOES THIS AFFECT YOUR SEO (SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION)?

Did you know that:

Pinterest rates #4 in the Top Social Networking Sites of 2013,
is also the fastest growing social network in history,
is one of the largest sources of referral traffic on the web,
and, in terms of SEO, is one of the best tools out there for creating backlinks to your website which plays a HUGE role in increasing both your page rank and views?
