Pinterest Group Boards are a great way to increase your engagement.
Sometimes it’s hard to find Pinterest Group Boards so keep on reading as I will show you an easy way on how to find Pinterest group boards
What are Group Boards?
Pinterest allows users to organize images into personal collections known as boards.
A group board is similar to a regular Pinterest Board. The only difference is that the creator can invite other people (known as collaborators) to Pin to the board.
When you pin your pin to a group a board, this allows your pin to be seen by the board owner and their followers as well as other collaborators and their followers.
ARE PINTEREST GROUP BOARDS DEAD?
A lot of people believe that Pinterest Group Boards are dead. Many people believe they are not worth it anymore.
I highly disagree. There are still many very active and highly engaged Pinterest Group Boards. I use Pinterest Group Boards all the time. It is a great way to spread my pins on Pinterest. I currently have over 6.6M monthly viewers and Pinterest drives over 80% of my traffic to my blog.
HOW TO KNOW IF A PINTEREST GROUP BOARD IS ENGAGED AND ACTIVE?
You only want to join active and engaged Pinterest Group Boards that have quality pins. If the board has Spammy pins, the board will not help you.
A great way to tell if the board is a high quality Pinterest Board is by using Tailwind. Tailwind has a section call “Board Insights”. Here you can find some useful information and stats on each Board to help you determine if the Group Board is a good one. Tailwind will tell give you the stats on all your boards and not just the group boards.
If you don’t use Tailwind, you should really look into it more. They are a scheduling tool that posts almost all of my pins to Pinterest for me so I don’t have to manually pin everyday. Here’s a free month to Tailwind so you can check it out.
WHAT TYPE OF PINTEREST Group Boards Should You Join?
Join Group boards that are related to your Niche. I don’t suggest joining every group board that you come across, only join boards that will help you to grow your blog.
Find Group Boards related to your niche, have high quality pins and ones that do not look spammy.
Once you are accepted to the Group Board, you can check Tailwind to see if the Pinterest Group Board performs well. If the Group Board is not performing well, you can leave the group.
You may also find group boards that have a “general topic” which means any topic can pin to the Group Board. Only pin to those boards if they perform well.
What are PINTEREST Group Boards Rules?
Check out the description of the group board to find the rules. The creator of the board will usually list the rules there as well as how to join the board. Make sure you follow the rules otherwise you will get booted out (usually without warning)!
Group boards usually have rules that everyone needs to follow.

HOW TO FIND PINTEREST GROUP BOARDS TO JOIN
I have an easy trick to help you find worthy Pinterest Group Boards to join.
First, find an influencer in your niche that has a high presence on Pinterest. They would normally have a large following and a large monthly viewer amount.
Now go to to their profile and look at their boards. See if they are part of any group boards that fall under your niche. Check out the board to see if it looks like a high quality group. If the board looks like a fit for you, read the description to the group board and contact the creator for invite.
You can find several group boards through this method and send your requests off for an invite. I suggest doing this a few times throughout DIFFERENT days. Pinterest HATES spammers. So if you look like a spammer, they will put a block on your account. So if you do this method a few times a day over several days, you should be fine. If you do it too much in one day, you’ll look like a spammer to Pinterest. No one wants to be in Pinterest Jail.
