The Ultimate Pinterest Party

Welcome back to The Ultimate Pinterest Party! I'm so glad it is Friday night! Not only is it time for my favorite party, but I also survived our first week of back to school! There is no harder task than going from the lazy days of summer to the strict schedule of the school year! Anyways, I am so happy to have you here! 

Here are two very important reminders!!

  1. Link to a PIN, not a post!!
  2. Before you link up the pin, click on the pin and make sure it takes you to your post, not your home page. Last week, I checked 61 of the link-ups and found 2 that did not go to the right post.
  3. PLEASE continue to remember to go pin other people's pins FROM THE ULTIMATE PINTEREST BOARD on SATURDAY MORNING (not tonight from the linky). Thanks!!
The Ultiimate Pinterest Party from The Ultimate Linky every Saturday morning.
If you would be interested in co-hosting this party in September and October or even just September or October, please let Tammy from The Ultimate Linky know. This is a time-sensitive party, so I know not everyone can be available to co-host. You would schedule the post (the script I give you) for 7 pm EST on Friday night, and you would have to be available to pin from 8:30 am - 9 am EST on Saturday morning. Once you have pinned your numbers, you would be done for the day. You can email me at thedoiels7@gmail(dot) com or use my Contact Page if you are interested.

Here were the pins that were re-pinned the most last week!

Last week we had fewer link-ups than the previous week (58), but you did a great job re-pinning. By Sunday night, a few of the pins had 10+ re-pins just on The Ultimate Pinterest Party Board. Cinnamon-Applesauce Pancake Poppers by Canary Streets Crafts had 13 re-pins from the Party board with another 7 re-pins from those initial re-pins!

  Roasted Corn Chowder by Foody Schmoody had 11 re-pins on The Ultimate Pinterest Board.

   The Ultimate Party on G+--grow your circles; get your posts boosted! #theultimateparty
Thank you for linking up and joining our party. We will remind people to link up every single Friday as it helps us know who is participating in our party, and which people are being by spammers by just using the hashtag #theultimateparty. We would also appreciate if you only used our hashtag on Fridays. This will discourage spammers from using our hashtag. We would appreciate it if you followed all the co-hosts above and the hosts, +Tammy Doiel from The Ultimate Linky, +Tammy A from My Life Abundant, +Kim P from KidPep, and +Amanda Paxton from Old House to New House on Google+ and any other social media that you would like to follow us on. The cohosts and hosts are the first 7 people linked up below, so it is easy to follow us on G+.

Why do we do a G+ party at all, and why do we do it on Fridays?

  1. Posting on G+ helps with SEO optimization.
  2. Posting on G+ helps your posts get ranked higher in Google's search engine.
  3. Friday is supposed to be the best time for interaction on G+, specifically between 11a.m. - 2 p.m. and 7 - 10 p.m
  4. To help you gain more followers on G+. (We'll have a G+ circle that we share every week for those who link up.)
  5. To interact with and get to know other bloggers.
  6. BECAUSE IT'S FUN!! Why do a party if it isn't going to be fun?

Here is a little extra information for this party:

  1. You can follow our G+ page (The Ultimate Party) if you want to see our updates! Also, if you follow our page, we will invite you every week to our party "event" so that you will be reminded of the party!
  2. If you wish, you can follow our Pinterest board called The Ultimate Party where all of your hosts can pin your great posts.
  3. Optional: You can include your pin URL that coincides with your post on G+ so that others can pin it if they want to do so. If you repin the pin, please try to remember to include the hashtag #theultimateparty in the pin description.
  4. We would love it if you grabbed our button!
