Should I Delete My Pins?
Many people argue that the best way to make your Pinterest account clean and tidy is by deleting old pins. Earlier in 2015, there had been a circulation that deleting old pins on Pinterest, those with little to no repins could actually boost your follower numbers. But until now, there has been no proof to this strategy, and as a business owner, it is best to actually spend your time creating content that will educate, entertain and inspire your audience rather than spend your time deleting several pins. spend your good time building your brand using healthy pin habits.
Another reason why I don’t actually advocate deleting pins is that if you delete a pin too soon, you are losing your chance for sudden search traffic. Remember that the shelf life of a pin is a hundred percent longer than other social media accounts and it can take time to circulate in the system due to Smart Feed. Deleting your pin too soon will only self-sabotage your pinning strategy.
When should I Delete a pin?
The only time I Delete a pin personally is when I ran a sale and no longer serve my audience if the link for my pin is a bad link or the link to the pin goes to another landing page because these three reasons are not helping me to serve and help my audience and are not going to give them a meaningful experience.
