#3. Use relevant keywords in board names To keep users engaged, it is necessary to use the relevant pins and information on the board. Use SEO-friendly keyword research tools to narrow down the keyword searches for your board. For example: If your board showcases the veg recipes, then only keep the veg recipes keywords in it.
