How to know when your content is pinned on Pinterest

Pinterest thank you comment example

As a follow-up to my earlier post about Pinterest for tourism and hospitality, I’ve learned how to tell when your content is pinned to someone’s Pinterest Board.

Use this URL:  http://pinterest.com/source/YourSite.com/

So, for example, to look for items that are pinned from this blog, I’d use http://pinterest.com/source/sheilasguide.com/

Here’s how I found that the multi-author travel blog I write for – Perceptive Travel Blog – has had a few things pinned:  http://pinterest.com/source/perceptivetravel.com/

No reason you can’t leave a comment and thank the person for pinning, either.

The photo at the top of this post is an example of doing that …. when you mouse over a Board on the Pinterest website, you’ll see popup options to Like, Repin and Comment.

You know what to do with a Comment box, right?  🙂

    Thanks for sharing this short cut on how to quickly find pins. I knew I had traffic coming from pinterest but wasn’t sure how to follow the trail. Now I can see who’s sharing and thank them.

    Thank you!

    I know Pinterest is the latest craze, but I just can’t add anything else to my plate, even though it looks like a lot of fun! But thanks for the tips on finding out if anyone else has pinned my content. I was surprised to find that quite a few have!
