Last week Pinterest finally launched what many business users on the image-sharing network have been crying out for – its brand new web analytics. Why all the excitement? Well up until now, Pinterest users have found it difficult to gain meaningful insights into how their audience was engaging with their content. Whilst you could check new followers, likes, repins and comments via the activity feed, unless you were using third-party solutions like the excellent Curalate, much of the tracking available within Pinterest involved guesswork and assumptions. Although they’re nowhere near the sophistication of Facebook Insights, Pinterest’s analytics are definitely a step in the right direction for bloggers, businesses and organizations wanting to find out what people are pinning from their websites. How Can Your Business Benefit From Pinterest’s New Analytics Tool?
One of the beautiful things about social media marketing is that its reach and reaction can be tracked. In comparison to direct mailings or print magazine advertisements, a business can actually count the potential customers who lay eyes on their tag lines and read over their reactions immediately, as they happen — right from their office computer screens. With that said, it’s pointless to waste your payroll establishing a presence on a social media platform without accompanying your company efforts with a measurement plan. This is especially important when exploring Pinterest, a relatively new — and particularly segmented — platform that can do wonders for a startup’s brand and bottom line.

Why I Don’t Mind Pinterest Hijacking My Links Recently, Joel Garcia at GTO Management bought it to everyone’s attention that everyone’s new favorite social sharing site, Pinterest, is basically hijacking links to make money as an affiliate. I highly recommend checking out Joel’s complete post, but here’s the main idea: When you “pin” something, unless you you the upload option to post your own picture, users can click on your pin to go to the original source. It’s a good system – it allows as much traffic as possible back to the site of interest, no matter who pins or repins.There’s this tool called SkimLinks that website owners can use that will basically look at an entire site and whenever a link could be an affiliate link, but isn’t, SkimLinks automatically makes it one.What Pinterest has done is installed SkimLinks so that anything pinned by any user that could be an affiliate link (but the user didn’t make one) will be made into one – using Pinterest’s ID.
