New Pinterest Functionality: Find Pins

Pinterest has rolled out another awesome feature that has direct benefits to marketers. I think you’ll really like this one.

The “Find Pins” function allows you to search for pins that are related to one of your Pinboards. Using this tool I was able to quickly find lots of Pins from this blog, that I had never seen before. Obviously that allowed me to like and comment on these newly identified items, and to follow the nice folks that took the time to pin the content. Here is a look at the Find Pins buttons.

Simply click on the Find Pins button and you’ll see a feed of highly relevant content. You can repin the items, or as I did, like, comment & follow.

Good times people!

  1. Not sure if I am the only one, but I haven’t been able to find this anywhere in my account. How did you make this functional? Did it just show up one day?

      It would appear as if it is being rolled out incrementally… I’ve heard that from others.

      I haven’t seen much writting about it either so I guess I’m on the bleeding edge. In fact, what it is doing is basically a search in the search bar for the name of the Pinboard, so if you hit “Find Pins” on the “SEO Rocks” pinboard – it automatically searches for “SEO Rocks”. It is not a magial button, but it saves you a few steps and makes the Pinterest Search function more quickly usable.

      Hope that helps,

      Jason
