On Friday, Crystal tweeted out the link for how to see who is pinning photos and posts from your website.
It’s as simple as can be…
and change “yourdomain.com” to “savvyblogging.net” or “5dollardinners.com” or “onedishdinners.com”
So take a minute, copy that URL, add your URL and then go take a look and see what is getting pinned…
Now it’s time to use what you are seeing to your advantage.
I thought I’d throw in a few tips and ideas of how you can analyze and use the information from this Pinterest about your domain page.
- Make a list of the 5 most common images or posts that you see on your domain’s page. These are your Pinterest $$ posts. If people have pinned these several times before, chances are they’ll get pinned again.
- Promote these posts periodically on your other social media networks. Keep throwing these great ideas back out onto your other social networks. (Without overwhelming of course!)
- Ask your community to pin these popular posts. Post a request on your FB wall…or RT the direct link to your pin. This also helps others on your other networks see that you are on Pinterest, and they will follow, you follow back, etc.
- Write a “Most Pinned Post” each month on your site. Great way to repurpose and recycle content! And get more pins into the mix. And build a stronger community on Pinterest.
- Post prettier photos Pinterest is 80% visual – 20% creative. Meaning that some posts or ideas do really well and get circulated widely because they are creative. But that majority of something spreading on pinterest has to do with it’s visual appeal. (Some might disagree with these percentages. They are not researched at all…my best guess based on personal observations of Pinterest.)
And don’t underestimate the power of Pinterest! Toni recently saw over 40,000 pageviews in one day from Pinterest alone. Pinterest is turning out to be a very powerful traffic driving tool in social media…definitely drives more traffic than Twitter…and who knows…it very well could surpass Facebook traffic if it continues to grow as it is!
Pinterest is an essential tool to your blog, your community, and your growth.
