I’ll say it right here. If you’re a blogger you should be using Rich Pins on Pinterest. Actually, there are a lot of things you should (or shouldn’t) be doing on Pinterest to help grow your blog, including having a business account, verifying your website, and using a scheduler like Board Booster, but today we’re talking about Rich Pins.
What are Rich Pins?
Basically, Rich Pins add extra details to your pins from your website. Your pins will have your website name and icon displayed, making it easier for pinners to find your blog. There are currently five types of Rich Pins: movie, recipe, article, product and place.
I have recipe Rich Pins which I love (and wish every food blogger used). Not only do they show a list of ingredients, they can also tell if your recipe is vegan, vegetarian, paleo, or gluten-free, and add a “Make It” button (which replaces the “Read It” one). Other extra information includes preparation time and number of servings.
According to Pinterest, here are explanations of the different types of Rich Pins in addition to Recipe Pins.
