Most people will know that you type the following URL to see your posts that are pinned on Pinterest...
Now you can see exactly how many times a post has been pinned, for a particular address. Pinterest has released a plugin that will show how many times a page or blog post has been pinned.
Blogger, however, has rolled out Country Redirect to blogs that don't have their own domain and so each post has multiple addresses, depending on where it is opened. The screen shot above shows how many times my Denim Fabric Baskets post has been pinned at this address:
The following are all addresses for the same post and if I cared to look up the Internet Country Codes (here or here), there would be more.
So, if I really wanted to know the exact pin count for the Denim Fabric Baskets post, I would have to type in every possible address and add them up. Hmmm... Maybe if I had more hours in the day.
The Pin Count plugin, is a handy little tool to have, to keep track of your posts on Pinterest.
In June, last year, I wrote my thoughts on Pinterest and still have much the same opinion. For me, it's a positive thing.
If however, you don't like Pinterest, or you just want some control over your photos, you can prevent the pinning of photos from your site. Jessi, from Practically Functional will show you how. She added the link to the Blog Tips link party, here on Threading My Way and I use her code every week when I do feature posts, as I would prefer people to pin from the original source.
