A few days ago, my good buddy Mitchell sent me a great Pinterest tip that I’d never heard of or seen before and I thought I’d pass it on to you.
It’s a really easy way to see what has been pinned from your blog or other site.
All you have to do is go here:
You obviously want to replace “YOUR_WEBSITE_HERE.com” with, um, your website.
Here are a few examples of it in action with some of my blogs:
- http://pinterest.com/source/thebacklight.com/ (I had no idea people were pinning stuff from The Backlight)
- http://pinterest.com/source/amazopia.com/ (I also had no idea that people had pinned anything from Amazopia)
- http://pinterest.com/source/cuteawesome.com/ (Lots of pins and repins here because this site is nothing but images)
This is neat because it easily shows which of your images are getting pinned and by whom. And more than that, it gave me ideas of how I can continue to use Pinterest to promote my websites. I never would have thought to use Pinterest for Amazopia, for example.
How else is this tip useful? It’s a great way to connect with people who are obviously already fans of at least something you’ve done. See who has pinned your content and then go thank them or try to get to know them better.
