When I write a caption I make sure to throw in a few keywords on there. It helps you rank throughout Pinterest searches. I try and make my caption pretty long, that's usually how much I need to give a nice description of what the article is going to be about. Pinterest gives you a certain amount of characters allowed, so you should definitely use them!
I don't usually read the complete caption of people's pin but I definitely take a loot at it 🙂
@RealWoodFloorsWP make sure to include relevant, useful descriptions that relate to the image. Use 50-250 word descriptions that include keywords and adjectives to help people imagine how they’ll use the Pin.
When I write captions I do research before posting my pin. I also try to use relevant keywords and hashtags. Not much people read captions but it helps you to be found on search results so I think it is important to think about captions and write it attentively.
I have been using a formula for my descriptions. I put the most relevant keyword first and then I add at least 5 keywords used in a couple of sentences. I have been adding a call to action along with my business name at the end as well. Then I add 2-3 hashtags if relevant.
Hope this helps!

Wanted to highlight one of my pins and get everyones honest feedback.
Don't be shy let me know your honest thoughts. This pin is pushing to a blog on our website.
Do not understand "seasonal personality". Since flooring doesn't change color easily as I understand it, then I have no idea what is being conveyed here.
I do see everyone is matching color hues and all color wise is harmonious. Maybe I am dense but this leaves me unconnected.
Hope that is of some use to you.
actually I am saying "seasonal personality" seems to me to have little to do with wood floors. See the image below of the search results for seasonal personality. Nothing there connects the term with wood floors or any floors as I see it.
Also there is this article which may relate to this: https://getpocket.com/explore/item/the-single-reason-why-people-can-t-write-according-to-a-harvard-p...
The words have to make sense to others you are aiming to reach. The words you choose matters. The colors less so. Images have to belong in the thought sphere of the words or vice versa.
Hope this perspective is of use.
