Getting your website confirmed on Pinterest opens up a lot of doors to the crazy Pinterest analytics lady inside of you. You are able to look at the pins that have come directly from your website, the impressions that were made, how many re-pins there are, as well as how many people clicked through to the actual post or site page.
With this information, you are able to find out more about what your audience on Pinterest is responding to and what types of pins (the layout/images/etc.) your audience is saving as well.
First, you need a business Pinterest account in order to get your website confirmed. Don’t have one? Find out how to switch from a personal to a business Pinterest account by clicking here.
