but where I place my hashtag on pinterest ??
You can add hashtag on your pin description.first select on create pin and after select photo, add title, write description after add hashtags, and attach your webpage link.
But Some people make this silly mistake that they put out all #tags on first paragraph of description. That ridiculous because first 140 letter of description is shown with your photo,that’s ridiculous.it looks like spammy. Don’t Do that.
Pinterest pin description allowed 500 words, write something about your photo/content and end of the description add up to 2–5 hashtags..that’s looking real engaging post.
And attach your own tag (like — my profile name talkwithpandya then i add my own #talkwithpandya attach) because its your personal branding so whenever people are search your hashtag then show your photos.
Do I add hashtags on old pin?
Yes, you can..but it won’t help anything because its convert your old pin in into new pin. So there are chances to you lose your rankings.
Go to your pin after click on edit then add hashtags on bottom of pin description.Done.save pin on board…
