Have you ever wondered who is pinning your posts from your blog? Did you know there is an easy way to find out?
Type this in your navigation bar:
In place of the YourWebsite.com you would put your own URL. For example, to find out who is pinning from this site we type in Pinterest.com/source/beckyandpaula.com and it shows us all the recent pins from our site.
When I track pins from my personal blog I always do Pinterest.com/source/beautythroughimperfection.com
Why is this important? Several reasons!
1. It gives you the opportunity to thank the pinners. I go through periodically and comment on pins people have done from my site. I usually say something like, “hey, glad you liked the post, thanks for pinning!” I even take a minute to follow some of the people that have pinned some of my posts. Sometimes they respond or start following me after that, so it’s a great way to build your following on Pinterest!
2. You can like the pins. When I go through commenting on some of the pins from my site, I also try to “like” each of them, by clicking the little heart. The more likes and comments on a pin, the more exposure it gets during searches, so this can help give pins from your site a little boost in visibility.
3. It allows you to see which images are doing best/what people are saying about them. Look at what is being pinned the most from your site, what images people are enjoying and if they are leaving their own comments in the description of the pin, you might be able to find out some info about what they liked most about the post. This can help give you some direction for future posts.
