Isn’t it crazy how Pinterest has gotten soooo popular? It always amazes me how trends come on so quickly. I know it’s a popular trend when my Mom (the least tech-dependant woman I know) is making recipes off of Pinterest and saying, “Did you see on Pinterest the other day…?”
I love saving all kinds of creative ideas on Pinterest. It has definitely taken the place of using internet bookmarks for me, but it also brings a lot of traffic to my blog. I love this article I found on Mashable with some useful Pinterest tools (full article can be found here) and I thought I’d share my favs:
PinReach.com – basic analytics, you can find out your most repinned pin, most popular boards and it gives you a PinReach score. It’s an interesting way to gauge your Pinterest influence. (average score is 29, just an FYI)
PinPuff.com – super simple site that gives you a Pinfluence score and gives you an idea of the value of your pins/referral traffic (a good score is between 40 and 70)
Pinstamatic.com – lets you pin other things besides just images - i.e. a snapshot of a website, a twitter profile or user, sticky notes onto your boards and much more – try it out, it’s kind of fun!
PinAQuote.com - highlight any block of text, paste it and create a cute re-pinnable pin to post to your boards (only basic options are free, more fonts require upgrade)
Hope you found something new…do you have any suggestions for great Pinterest tools? I’d love to hear about them!
