Pinterest Marketing

Find the content your readers are already pinning on Pinterest. Curious about what people are organically pinning straight from your site? There’s a way to find out, and you can learn about if you should you pin from your site to Pinterest, how to find pins on Pinterest from your site, and the answer to ‘Can you pin things from your site more than once?’.

You can find out what people are really interested in so you can create more of that quality, popular content. Visit pinterest.com/source/yoursite.com to see the content your readers are already pinning. Just be sure to put in your own domain site in the “yoursite.com” area and you’ll discover what content you should create more of for your audience!

Update April 16, 2021: using the /source/yoursite.com will take you back to your business hub now. You’ll simply have to start using your business conversion analytics to see how your pins are being seen and engaged with from this point on. It’s a recent Pinterest algorithm and functionality change we were not expected to see, because it certainly was a nice/useful tool to have.

It’s common for Pinterest to make changes as the platform grows and strives to provide positive experience for Pinterest users. I know first-hand as a brand business owner that when you find a specific tool a platform offers and then all of a sudden they take it away, how utterly annoying that is. But, it happens, and Pinterest is constantly making changes and updates to the algorithm all the time. This is not news. LOL

The alternative to this is to use your conversions reports, Tailwind if you have it, and review your analytics to find out which pins from your own website are performing the best.
