10 Little-Known Pinterest Tips & Tricks You Will Love! – I love discovering new ways to get the most out of Pinterest. In this blog post, I am sharing some of my favourite tricks that you can use to improve your marketing on Pinterest. I bet there are one or two tricks here that you have not seen before!
Never miss a new pin from your favourite pinners again!
The first tip is a beautiful match between Pinterest and Feedly. It is a great way to keep you posted on any new content pinned on to your favourite Pinterest boards. All you need to do is create an RSS feed for your selected boards in Feedly by copying the URL of the board you want to keep track of in Feedly and replace the “/” at the end by “.rss”. Next step is to add this newly created feed to your Feedly account, et voilà: you now have a brand new feed for your favourite Pinterest boards. For more detailed information on how to do this, read this post on Fabulous Blogging.
How to replace blog post images WITHOUT LOSING all the Pinterest links
Do you want to replace some of your blog images, but you fear it will break the links from the hundreds or thousands of repins out there that contain the original images? There is a way to replace those images without breaking any Pinterest links. The way to do this is to keep the old images in your blog article and making them invisible. Just add some HTML code to the images you wish to hide: style=”display: none;” Then add the new image to your blog article. Now, anyone who wants to pin directly from your website can only pin the unhidden images. Julia from cuckoo4design explains how she did this for her blog posts.

Who is pinning content directly from your website?
The following powerful little feature allows you to check who is pinning content directly from your website. To do this, copy the following URL into your address bar http://www.pinterest.com/source/yourwebsite.com. Replace “yourwebsite.com” with your own website name and press Enter. You will see a list of the users who pinned your content and the board they pinned it to. Why not thank them for sharing your content and follow them?
You can also use this just to browse what is being pinned from any other website. For example, if you want to see what people are pinning from the Ikea website, you just check the URL pinterest.com/source/ikea.com. Check out this short video by Jacob Curtis to see this feature in action.
Finding new boards and pinners to follow
When browsing or searching Pinterest boards on a mobile device, have you ever noticed the little lightbulb icon for Related Pins when moving your finger over a board? This is an excellent way to discover new boards and pinners that have similar interests to yours. You can also use it to see which other boards have pins similar to your own boards by sliding to the lightbulb and releasing it.
