Best Pinterest Group Boards for Travel Bloggers

In this post we are going to be discussing what Pinterest group boards actually are, why they are awesome for getting your content out there and how to join them. Oh, and we’re also sharing our top 50 Pinterest Group Boards for Travel Bloggers so you can just click-through the links and get joining!

What Are Pinterest Group Boards?

A group board works like any regular Pinterest board, the only difference being that multiple people can pin content to it. The person who created the board owns it and they can add others to join. To identify whether a board is a personal board or a group board simply look at the board icon, if multiple profiles are present it’s a group board – simple!

Also, just to clear up any confusion, Pinterest group boards sometimes go by other names. So if you hear the terms; shared boards, contributor boards, collaborative boards or community boards don’t worry, they are all the same thing.

What’s The Advantage of Pinterest Group Boards?

The major benefit of Pinterest group boards is that the content you pin will reach a far wider audience than just your followers. This is because it is also reaches all the other contributor’s followers as well. The more eyes on your pins, the more chance you’ll have of re-pins and click throughs to your website, hence increasing your traffic.

Because group boards are generally curated around a specific niche and the content is monitored by the owner and irrelevant and/or unattractive pins removed, they are excellent resources for repinning other people’s quality content to your other boards.

From a business perspective, creating your own group boards also creates excellent networking opportunities and if you have a particular niche board will build up your authority as as a thought leader on a particular subject. For example the main focus of GoatsOnTheRoad’s blog is to enable people to earn money on the road and live a life of fulltime travel. Therefore, their Pinterest group board ‘Turn Travel Into A Lifestyle’ is all about that.

💡 Pro Tip: If you want to have great, professional-looking photos for your Pinterest images and on your blog, consider signing up for Shutterstock. They have lots of amazing stock images available for creators.

How Do I Join Group Boards?

Depending on the settings of the individual group board, you will either need to secure an invite from the owner or one of the other contributors. When you are in the board, the board owner will always be the most left profile picture.

Each group board will usually have joining instructions in the board description, which will typically be things like follow the owner profile and direct message them through Pinterest or sometimes an email will be provided instead. If there are no instructions the owner is probably not looking for contributors at that time but if you really want to join there is no harm in sending them a quick message.

To send a direct message in Pinterest click on the icon with 3 dots on your Pinterest toolbar and go into your inbox. This is where your invites to group boards will also come in. Once you accept the invite, it will be added to your profile along with all your other boards.

Whether you are requesting an invite by sending a direct message or an email, you just want to go with a quick greeting, the name of the board you want to join, the link to your Pinterest account and also the email associated with your Pinterest account (i.e. the one you use to sign in). For example:

Hey _____!

Could we please be added to your ________________ Pinterest group board?

We’d love to contribute!

It’s or the associated email is

Thanks so much!

Always read the group board rules before you request to join and follow them once you are a member, as you risk being removed from the group board if you pin irrelevant content, or too many pins at once, for example.

  1. This is a very interesting blog since it’s a very creative and amazing way to gain visibility for a website and increase the reach of your blog, thank you for these incredible tips and for sharing different group boards!

  2. Great info on Pinterest, but gotta share a pet peeve: too many bloggers post images with their post title obscuring whatever they are sharing.

    Social media is about sharing, not just straight up promoting…

  3. Thanks for this great list of Pinterest Group Boards! They are an awesome way of getting your content out there and I use it often, but I like Tailwind Tribes even better. Kind of the same goal, but even easier, I believe. 🙂

  4. Hey!
    Absolutely loved reading this post! Pinterest is such a great social media platform for bringing in views to your blog!
    Just want to say a big thank you for including my Pinterest group board – top bloggers share their posts in your top 50! <3

    Happy Travels!

  5. This is a great post! I’m currently building my Pinterest through group boards and also would love to mention I am hosting group boards as well on open to new contributors. Thanks for this helpful list 🙂

  6. Very helpful post Nick/Dariece. I started using Pinterest 2 years ago and with little work I now get a couple hundred users a day – which is about a couple hundred more than I get from other social media 🙂
    I’ve noticed though that over the last year it’s harder to get traction, so many more bloggers also using Pinterest. And like anything else it’s usually a couple of pins that bring in 90% of the traffic.

    Most of these boards I’ve never heard of. I’ve had it in mind to rededicate to Pinterest so I’m going to start with these right now!

  7. This post really made my day, I’ve been blogging for around 3 months now, so I’m practically new to this. I just realized how much work Pinterest is, kind of difficult to be an active user when you have a full-time job, plus you have to create engaging posts for your blog as well, not to mention other social media you might want to be part of to also drive traffic, but anyway, I’ll definitely start requesting to join group boards and pin. Thank you

  8. Hi,
    Thank you for sharing this! What a great article! I’m a Pinterest Manager and I’m managing a Pinterest account. I have been looking for great travel group boards.

  9. Thanks for this. Although I’ve been on Pinterest a while I really need to get my Pinterest strategy up and running so this list is so useful, thanks! I hadn’t heard of Pingroupie either.

  10. This is a very useful post. The list of group boards is a great place for someone who is starting to share to group boards and be part of the community

  11. Thank you so so much for this! I’ve been struggling with Pinterest and finding the group boards so this has been a life saver. Honestly can’t thank you enough!
