Track Yourself on Pinterest

Blog-tracking-pinterest

I have been working on integrating Pinterest with my blog, Superfood Switch.  It has actually been really fun to see things pinned from my site get repinned and liked by fellow Pinterest users.  The more I use Pinterest, the more I see the benefits of, for a lack of a better term, “going viral.”  Not to mention it is fun to see the number of visitors to my site going up.

I read a great article today on Mashable by Ann Smarty about tracking your website’s content on Pinterest.  She also gives step-by-step instructions on how to create an RSS feed with this information.  I will definitely try it on my site and let you know how it works.  You should too!

Here is are some tips she gives in boosting your  pins and gaining more exposure for your site or blog:

For starters, see what is being pinned from your own site by using the following URL:

http://pinterest.com/source/YourWebsite.com/

As simple as it may seem, the trick is actually pure gold. By checking the URL often, you can give your site pins more boost.

  • Always Like and sometimes comment on pins from your site to give them better ranking and increase their reach.
  • Repin some of the most interesting and unique images. You can even repin user comments.
  • Follow your promoters (those who pin your pages), encouraging them return to your site.

Be sure to read the rest of the article How to Track Your Website’s Content on Pinterest by Ann Smarty on Mashable.
