Pinterest is a huge traffic driver. Giving people the ability to pin at least one image from a post on your site gives you the opportunity to gain more traffic. Once someone pins something, all of their followers on Pinterest can see it. And if they pin something, all of their followers can see it. And… well that’s how virality happens! But don’t you ever wonder what’s getting pinned from your site? Sure, you can look at every individual image, but what if you could see them all with one simple search? Well, lucky for you, there’s an easy way to see all of the pins that come from images on your site.
Type this into your web browser:
(leave out the http and the www)
The result will be all images from your blog that others have pinned with pin counts if applicable. Now you can see which types of images are the most popular when it comes to Pinterest. That information can be very valuable. If a certain depth of field is more popular, or a certain background, it’s good to know. Take a look at your most pinned images and react accordingly. If you just look to look, you’re not really gaining anything from it. It’s all about how you respond to your new-found information!
Note: you can actually search for what is getting pinned from anyone’s site. Just type their url instead of yours in the search. This is a great idea for the more popular sites. You can take a look and see what types of photos are getting the most pins and act accordingly. (Of course, without copying. Nobody likes a copycat.)
