If you a Social Media freak, you might have noticed that Pinterest, though launched two years back or so, has now been making revolution by generating millions and millions of visits each day. Thanks to Facebook for it’s Timeline integration. Earlier we shared 10 B2B Strategies To Win With Pinterest. Now here is a ultra cool tip that will help you to track how much people “Pin” images from your site and in turn how much it drives traffic to your site.

If you might have noticed, Pinterest has a ultra cool URL format that will help you to see how much “Pins” are made from a particular site. If you type the following URL “http://pinterest.com/source/website.com” in the address bar and hit Enter, the page will load showing the list of “Pins” made by various users of Pinterest, from your website.

A Look Into A Sample

As of now, hitting the URL “http://pinterest.com/source/axleration.com” will show all the “Pins” made by the Pinterest users right from the Axleration site. Take a look at the image below. You can see that the URL section reads “http://pinterest.com/source/axleration.com/” and below lie the list of “Pins” made from the Axleration site. You can scroll the whole way down and you can take a look at all the “Pins” made from the site with the “Pin It” button that Pinterst provides for “Pinning” images and videos from any site.

Few Tips Worth Knowing While Using This Tool

You can use this tool to track the number of visits you get from Pinterest and get to know the your site’s presence in the world of Pinterest.

A few things to keep in mind while you use this tool :

  • With this tool, you can see only the original “Pins” made by the users. It neglects the number of “Repins” made by the users. To know the number of “Repins” too, you ought to click the image and below lies the “Repins” count.
  • Pinterest neglects the “www” section of the domain name. Typing the domain name with the “www” section would give a 404 error, which in turn does not revert you with the “Pins” made from your site.
  • This tool’s algorithm gives a different result when you search for a particular subdomain. If you search for “Pins” from http://pinterest.com/source/subdomain.maindomain.com“, it could vary from the results of the original site, that’s http://pinterest.com/source/website.com“. So, do check for each subdomain to know more about your site’s presence on Pinterest.

With these tips in your mind, you can make sure to get know your site’s online presence on Pinterest and how much it has been driving traffic to your site. Also, make sure to follow those users who have “Pinned” content from your website, to get to know more about them. Sharing is caring, right? Go ahead and check out those users and friend them.
