Finding out what people are pinning from your site is a great key to see what is popular. We all can assume what we think will do best on Pinterest. Things like recipes, cute animals, crafts, DIY projects, awesome photography, etc. But, some things may just surprise you.
How to Track Who is Pinning What from Your Site
Being the stats and tracking spaz that I am, I got very excited to learn about PinAlerts.com. This site alerts you as pictures are pinned from your blog. I have alerts set up for all of my blogs. You can choose how often you would like to receive the alert emails. I have mine set up to email me hourly.
It’s interesting to see not only what is being pinned, but who is pinning. It’s a great way to find out who visits your site often. When I see that it’s a fellow blogger, I definitely head on over to return the favor. Like above, Kristin rocks and I will make sure that I have been pinning her awesomeness on Keenly Kristin, as well.
The weekly summary is interesting, too. It will give you a roundup of how many pins happened during the week from each of your sites. You can go in and manage your account at any time. Change the frequency of which you receive emails, add accounts, or delete them.
PinAlerts.com is free and is currently in BETA. I know Pinterest has its own analytics, too, but I like the email alerts. It’s fun to get an email update that one of your new posts has just been pinned a bunch of times, or follow your weekly progress. Just one more thing to analyze and learn from as bloggers.
I have a Pinterest board for blogger resources. Make sure to follow it for more tips. 🙂
