As a follow-up to my earlier post about Pinterest for tourism and hospitality, I’ve learned how to tell when your content is pinned to someone’s Pinterest Board.
Use this URL: http://pinterest.com/source/YourSite.com/
So, for example, to look for items that are pinned from this blog, I’d use http://pinterest.com/source/sheilasguide.com/
Here’s how I found that the multi-author travel blog I write for – Perceptive Travel Blog – has had a few things pinned: http://pinterest.com/source/perceptivetravel.com/
No reason you can’t leave a comment and thank the person for pinning, either.
The photo at the top of this post is an example of doing that …. when you mouse over a Board on the Pinterest website, you’ll see popup options to Like, Repin and Comment.
You know what to do with a Comment box, right? 🙂

Thanks for sharing this short cut on how to quickly find pins. I knew I had traffic coming from pinterest but wasn’t sure how to follow the trail. Now I can see who’s sharing and thank them.
Sure, Theresa, glad it helped.
Love this! (And, may I add, happy to say Pinterest was founded by an Iowan!)
Yes, the BusinessWeek article about Pinterest mentioned that, I think. Go, Midwest!
Thanks so much for sharing this information, very helpful.
Sure, Sue. Thanks for dropping by.
Wow…I had no idea how many times I’d been pinned…and long before I even got on Pinterest!
Thanks for these tips! Adding this as a weekly “to do”!
I know Pinterest is the latest craze, but I just can’t add anything else to my plate, even though it looks like a lot of fun! But thanks for the tips on finding out if anyone else has pinned my content. I was surprised to find that quite a few have!
This is a fantastic tip — I had no idea! Thank you so much for sharing.
