Efem was so excited from the results of the experiment that Lesley did with Pinterest that she just lit up and had to share the results with The CAT. Here is what was learned:
This is an example of how you can label a single image and see how many times it can be posted. The main thing I wanted to discover was if Pinterest would recognized these as five individual pins or as the same pin. Pinterest saw each as being unique and a new pin.
Now the downsize of this was that since I created these all at once and pinned them all at once... I lost impression value. The first one hit high and then each one went down in numbers from there. What also was interesting is that by using my Engagement page I was able to see the Stats very clearly on these pins. Plus my picture/pin did not show up on my Engagement page if I posted to a group board. After thinking about it, it does make sense since a group board isn't a board directly on my page but a shared board.
So just to recap... if you have 3 or 4 pictures re-labeling the images for each picture with different links would create up to 15 to 20 unique pins... that is almost a whole month if you just pin once a day!
Efem and The CAT hope you enjoyed the hint this week - they did.
The other newbie thing is the icon between the bell and the red dot (shown in the picture below). This icon of the 1/2 bell is called the Engagement Page. One can see where Pinterest is also ratcheting up the need to engage or talk with potential pinners and buyers. This page is a clear shot to those who have made a comment or question on your pin ~ making it easier to response to them. Hopefully we will find out more about this as it get developed further as not all pages are getting this just yet.
In the meantime if you want to check it out, just login on a computer to see if the 1/2 bell is there. It may not appear on a mobile app until after you look at it on your computer (like other issues we have discovered).
Snoop is now off again to see what else he can uncover in his search to solve the mysteries of Pinterest.
The power behind the nice thing about commenting on a pin is that by doing so, the pin gets a higher placement in the newsfeed suggestions.
So, the Baron came up with this 'fix' for the problem. If the option to comment on a pin does not appear on your mobile device (1) Pin a pin to your board from the mobile; (2) Log into your Pinterest account on a computer or laptop; (3) Find the pin that was just pinned from the mobile and make a comment ~~ when you go to the pin on your board with the mobile, the option for comments should now appear. If it does not work the first time, repeat this process again... it took the Baron two tries when he was testing this 'fix'.
Snoop has found several articles about Instagram and Pinterest while searching for stories from something called the World Wide Web... we don't know what that means, but he swears by it...
