I’ve used Pinterest for awhile and notice it is really taking off. It is a great way to collect a visual set of bookmarks. Like a cross between delicious, twitter, and tumblr is how I would describe it.
Anyway, you might already know about it, but one feature that is a little harder to track down is how best to add a “pinit” button to your website. On the Pinterest site is the direction to add a bookmarklet ( recommended if you have joined Pinterest), or having a separate button for each post, but if you want a whole site application for having a a button that works like the bookmarklet you need something a bit different.
Page on Pinterest for creating buttons, ‘Pinterest Goodies‘.
Another post on the topic is found at Clickinmoms. The instructions are a bit more complex, but you might be up for the task
I have noticed an increase in traffic that comes from Pinterest- small, but then I don’t actively use my Pinterest account with any regular use.That may very well change!
