pinterest new look analyticsIt’s finally here! You can now track Pinterest from Pinterest! How you may ask? It’s simple really but you’ll need to do two things before you can start getting a good reading.

I’ve been waiting for this for a long time as I’m sure lots of other bloggers have as well.

It’s super easy to start using this feature. Here’s how (Make  sure you pin this!)

1. You need to have a verified website (tutorial here) which is super easy and looks like this. You will get a little checkmark next to your website once it’s verified. If you need help getting verified let me know. It’s not hard and I’ve helped lots. (You must be self hosted)

verified

 

2. You need to be rocking the New Look!

If you haven’t noticed it yet there is an alert on your home page of Pinterest. Click on the Preview button to start using the New Look.Pinterest new look

 

It will walk you though the New Look and even let you know how to switch back but you better start getting used to the look now because just like Facebook you’ll be “forced” to switch eventually anyways. Besides you want the analytics…trust me.

new look welcome

Here’s what you’ll get for analytic tracking.

  • Track your Pinning activity 
  • Learn what Pinners like or Trending
  • Track repins, impressions and reach
  • Clicks2013031202

Happy Pinning!
