A few days ago Pinterest sent me an email about their new analytics feature. Now you can see how how many impressions you receive, how many pins you get and a lot of other useful information all in one place. It’s available only for business pages and only after you upgrade to new interface. Fortunately, upgrading is easy and you can switch to old interface any time you wish.
I’ll admit I didn’t want to join Pinterest. I was confident this will not work for my site, because it’s not image based. I mean I do have pretty images, but it’s not my core content. You never know until you try. Pinterest became a good source of free traffic, who actually visit my website and read my stuff.
I don’t do any effort. I just pin my posts and make sure the title appears properly. That’s it. I have only 5 followers on Pinterest (I joined just about two weeks ago) but it doesn’t seem to prevent others like my pins and visit my website. Pinterest is much, much better than Facebook for me.
