Text BESIDE your Pinterest image
If you hover over the blog button in the menu, you will notice a number of different Pinterest blog posts. This post describes how I solved one Pinterest problem.
I had the long pin you see here and wanted to have text beside it. My problem was this: I would have several lines of text beside the image. Then the rest of the text was below the image. That left a big gap of white space which looked rather unprofessional.
After much experimentation, I discovered the reason for the problem: WordPress does not allow headings to be beside a picture. I was trying to have <H2> headings beside the picture. WordPress simply moved that text to the space beneath the picture.
After I discovered the reason for the problem, the solution was quite simple: Instead of an <H2> heading, I used regular text bolded and displayed in a different color.

- I’m mainly promoting my granite pet memorials to the United States. So, I looked at the keyword volume to that country. Here are three long-tail keywords I used along with the monthly search volume:
- Dog sprayed by skunk — 5400
- Skunk smell — 1900
- Skunk smell removal — 1000.
