Would you like to learn how to embed Pinterest pins on your website?

Embedding a Pinterest pin on a website or blog post is something every website owner should learn as it can help their pins receive more exposure. People can repin the pin directly from the website by clicking on the ‘Pin It’ button on the embedded pin. They can also click on the pin and check out the enlarged version. The details of the board and pinner can be found at the bottom of the embedded pin. This can result in engagement with your other pins and in more followers.

So today I am going to show you how to embed Pinterest pins on your website or blog. It’s something that’s really easy and should only take you a few minutes…

1. The first thing you need to do is select the pin you would like to use. After that, expand the pin by clicking on it.

    Hi Mitt, Can I ask you something off topic? How can I achieve those floating social media icons on the left of the blog? Many Thanks.

  • I think this may have changed now because all I see is a share to Facebook option. 🙁

  • I saw that too I do remember you were able to

  • Aliyasidd

    Mitt Bellaisa is right there is only share with fb option. What to do ?

  • “The first thing you need to do is select the pin you would like to use. After that, expand the pin by clicking on it.”

    Sorry — I got lost immediately at step #1: what does ‘select’ and ‘expend’ mean? How do you do that?

  • This is no longer viable. Is there an update to this?
