Some 47% of online shoppers in the US have made purchases based on Pinterest recommendations, according to an infographic by WhoIsHostingThis.

So, how can you boost the number of online shoppers looking at your Pinterest boards?

First, you need to make sure your profile is perfect. That means making sure your username matches your real name or business name, and briefly (yet clearly) filling out the About section: Include a link to your site, and upload a profile picture.

After you create a profile, commit to being active on Pinterest. For example, "Go the 'Popular' feed and comment on the most popular pins," WhoIsHostingThis suggests.

Don't comment on random pins, however. Your comments should demonstrate that you care (and know) about the subject.
