Tuesday Tips: What Do Your Readers Find "Pin-Worthy?"

Our very own co-founder, Lauren, of La Petite Fashionista just started her very own venture, LPF Media where she shares blogging and social media tips on the LPF Media blog & offers one one one consulting & management services whether you're an overwhelmed blogger just starting out or a business that needs someone managing their channels and building social strategies!

She offers a "Stylish Social Tip" series on the blog, where she offers some secrets and tips for better understanding and growing your blogging presence. She's sharing a guest post today of one of her favorites- a tip that makes pinterest a whole lot more interesting!

Pinterest has proven itself as one of the biggest traffic drivers to blogs, websites & product pages and continues to grow to be a larger percent of referrals each season. It's crazy how much you can learn by looking at what content your audience is organically finding and pinning from your site.

Whether your a blog or small business you absolutely must add a "pin it" button to your site. This makes it easy for people to share your content. Pinterest has a simple tutorial and html code to embed.

The quickest way to check out what people are pinning from your website is the "source" page.
Type "pinterest.com/source/yourwebsite.com" for example for my blog, the source page is "pinterest.com/source/lapetitefashionista.blogspot.com"

By looking at the source page, you can see what type of content people want to share. It will be different for every website, but a good indication of what is generating interest and buzz. Maybe it's DIY Posts? Maybe it's How To Outfit Guides? Maybe it's free printables?  Utilizing this page can help give you ideas for future posts. Or if you're an online store- which products are getting the most love from fan of the brand.

Want to dig in even deeper? I highly recommend signing up for a free pinterest business page to get an even better understanding of your pinterest analytics!

  1. Oooh I love the Pinterest Source Page, thanks!

  2. I've been getting emails recently about the Pinterest business page. I think I'm going to look into that tonight. Thanks for the tips!

  3. Pinterest is our #1 referral and so valuable to bloggers. All your stats can be found under Analytics. You should be able to see that under a personal account once you verify your website. Signing up for a business account is not necessary for bloggers. Great tips!
