How to Embed Your Pinterest Board in Your Blog Post

http://reviewthispersonalreviews.blogspot.com/2015/04/reviewing-how-to-embed-your-pinterest.html
I am always looking for new ways to improve and increase the ways I can easily create displays for my websites and blog posts. I recently discovered how to embed a Pinterest Board in a blog post here on Blogger, as well as on websites.

I love using Pinterest! It is not only a great way for me to share my photos, articles and favorite craft tutorials, but it is also an excellent way for me to find new ideas and products.

Being able to create a specific niche board on Pinterest is really awesome. Being able to share that board with others via a blog post, is most excellent!


How to Create and Embed the Pinterest Board HTML Code


You are going to laugh at how easy it is to create and embed your individual Pinterest board. It takes only a moment to do either of these displays!


To Create This Pinterest Board, Simply


https://business.pinterest.com/en/widget-builder#do_embed_board
  • Click Here
  • Then, copy the Pinterest Board URL that you wish to display and paste it in the box. 
  • Select the size of your display from the Custom Sizes ~ Square is Shown Above
  • Click "Build It"
  • Copy and Paste the Generated Code into the html section of Your Blog Post
  •  



To Create This Pinterest Board, Simply


https://business.pinterest.com/en/widget-builder#do_embed_board
  • Click Here
  • Then, copy the Pinterest Board URL that you wish to display and paste it in the box. 
  • Select "Roll Your Own" in the Custom Sizes options
  • Select Image Width 80, Board Height 400, Board Width 800
  • Click "Build It"
  • Copy and Paste the Generated Code into the html section of Your Blog Post
  •  
There are several size options available or you can play with the display size by simply changing the numbers in the "roll your own" section.   The size I used here was the board size that I thought looked best on this particular site.

These boards are generated feeds and the looks will change each time you add a new pin to your board.


Using an Embedded Pinterest Board   


There are many ways and places that online writers might wish to use an embedded Pinterest board.  One example that immediately comes to me is if you are publishing a recipe article, you could embed your recipe Pinterest board at the bottom of  your article to show additional recipes.

If a reader clicks on one of the pictures on the embedded board, it will allow them to immediately repin the original pin, which means they could easily repin every image link showing on the board without ever leaving your article.

If a reader clicks on the "See on Pinterest" button at the bottom of the embedded board, the link will take them to the actual board on Pinterest and they can explore all of your recipes / articles on that board.

Personally, I think this is a fabulous tool for online writers and I would highly recommend trying it out.  You may well see a huge increase in not only your Pinterest traffic and repins, but also in the traffic to your other articles showing on a displayed board.

  2. Awesome tutorial, Cynthia! And, yes, it is super simple to embed Pinterest boards in a blog post. I also add Pinterest boards (as a widget) to the sidebar of of some of my blogs. Great way to get extra exposure.

    1. You are absolutely right Coletta! I have had to use a plug-in on my websites in the past to display a Pinterest board, but I love being about to grab the code and stick it in a text box for the sidebar display now! Plug-in's can have conflicts, but a simple code in a text box creates no problems for a website.

  4. I hadn't really thought of putting an individual board in a blog post, itself but I can see the benefits. I have used it to put in the sidebar of my different sites but not individual pages and posts. I like it! I also did not realize that we could "roll our own" (sorry that just made me crack up!) but now that I know, I'm gonna go play with my virtual paper and scissors.

    1. That phrase made me crack up too Beverly! I really like your term "virtual paper and scissors" too. I hadn't really thought of it that way, but that is exactly what it is.

  5. This is marvelous. It wouldn't let me embed it in a text box on Hubpages (just turned it into a text link), but I made a screenshot of the pinboard I wanted and used that in a photo capsule and put the text link.

    I think I can use this on Webnuggetz.

    1. I do love the "roll your own" feature myself Sandy! I still laugh every time I see that phrase/title though. Someone at Pinterest has a fun personality for sure.
