Monitor Your Pinterest Stats

April 10, 2012 | By Dee Ann Rice

Pinterest is taking the internet by storm.

If you are not using it you are missing out on traffic.

If you still need an invite to Pinterest leave me a note in your comment and I will send you one.

Sometime back I did a post – Pinterest – Bookmarking Fun! – that contained a video on Pinterest and I can not believe how many hits that video has received.  I know that other people do videos all of the time and get hundreds of thousands of viewings but my videos are not like that.  I might get a hundred or two and I think that is good.

My Pinterest video has been viewed 11,310 times as I write this post.  More and more people are joining Pinterest everyday.

Monitor Your Pinterest Account

Up until now it was impossible to monitor your Pinterest stats. There was no way of knowing what pin was drawing the most traffic and how many times a pin was being viewed.

There are two new pieces of software that will allow you to monitor your Pinterest stats.

Pinerly is still in beta form as far as I can tell.

In order to get Pinerly you have to sign up for it and they will send you an invite when they are ready to go live.

Go to in order to get on the waiting list and get a sneak preview of just what it will do.

Pinerly is supposed to provide analytics as well as several other features to help you monitor your Pinterest account.

WP Pinner is a WordPress plugin to manage your Pinterest account directly from within your own WordPress admin area.

With WP Pinner you will be able to easily manage who you follow, schedule pins based on your WordPress posts or external sources and keep track of your account.

You will be able to track CTR, clicks, likes, repins, reach, and other stats that will help you manage your Pinterest account to your best advantage.

Sign Up Now

Head on over to Pinerly and WP Pinner to get on the list to receive these new programs for managing your Pinterest account.

What Do You Think?

I always like to know what my readers are thinking.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think about Pinterest. How you think Pinterest compares to other social networks. If you use Pinterest and do you like it? Do you think having a better way to manage your Pinterest account would be of value?

Hi Dee Ann,

Thanks for the info and links, I’ll check out Pinerly but think I’ll give the plugin a miss for now.

I’ve only recently started using Pinterest and as yet only have 4 boards. My main reason for getting on there was to bookmark all the video posts for the video blog challenge. Now that it is over I’ll go back and add some boards :)

Thanks Dee Ann, I’ll check out Pinerly next :)

I don’t know if I want another plugin either. I have enough problems with the plugins I already have.

I am curious though how these are going to work.

I keep forgetting about Pinterest but have been trying to pin all of my posts as just another way to get exposure.

Thanks for stopping by Barry and have a great week.

Wow, Dee Ann, over 11k of views! I bet you’re chuffed to bits! Stats are always of interest to us and finding ways of monitoring them is sometimes difficult. It’s great when someone does the work for you! Thanks for sharing.

Enjoy the journey.

I was pretty excited when I realized that this video was getting so much attention.

It seems like it is getting more all of the time. I wrote the post and made the video about 6 months ago or so and 2 weeks ago there were only about 9500 view now there are 11300 or so. It just keeps gaining.

I like stats also so when I found these two new pieces of software I thought it was great.

Glad you can use the information.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

Wow, that video got that many hits? I know, just because I didn’t immediately jump on the band wagon with Pinterest doesn’t mean others don’t want to learn about it. I know it’s huge and I’m not using it the way I should but I am getting traffic now.

I had someone send me a link last week to Pinerly and I had no idea what it was. I don’t have time to go research stuff so people need to at least tell me what it is they are sending me. I appreciate you setting me straight on that one Dee Ann.

So unless we download yet another WP plug-in there is no way right now to check stats on Pinterest? Am I to understand that? I don’t sign in using Facbook, I sign in using Twitter. Will that still work do you know?

Thanks Dee Ann and look forward to your response. Hope you’re enjoying your day!

I have not been very good at using Pinterest but have started using it more just to get more exposure for my posts. Not sure it is working but it is simple to do.

You do not need to use another plugin. WP-Pinner is a plugin but Pinerly is not a plugin. When it finally goes live you can use it.

I cringe at the thought of using another plugin. I have had lots of problems with plugins before and figure the fewer I have to use the better.

I will wait and see how both work and then decide what I will use.

I will let you know if I find out more about these. I hope I was able to clarify things some for you .

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Great post Dee Ann!

I was just about wondering as to how we can get to know of our Pinterest stats, when your post came across! But I too have similar queries as Adrienne, as I rarely use Facebook to sign into anything, so would anything else work?

I wouldn’t want to put in another plugin either as that gets my blog rather heavy. I guess I just love to see people join me, and those who leave its goodbye to them- though that rarely happened so far :)

Thanks for sharing. :)

I don’t know that you have to sign in with facebook on Pinerly. But, I have not actually gotten into the account yet. I am working on getting an invite.

I agree with not wanting another plugin. I am always trying to get rid of plugins.

If I hear any more I will let you know.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

Hey DeeAnn

Congratulations on so many views on You Tube and if I was you I’d make some more quick while it’s a HOT subject…

I have signed up for pinnerly but am still waiting to get accepted and it would be good if I can monitor my stats better so will defo check out your links.

Have a fab day



10 Dee Ann Rice April 12, 2012 at 10:31 am


Ya, I am pretty impressed with the number of views on that video. Today it is at 11,598. I can not believe that I made a video that is doing so well.

I suppose I should make more videos but think there are a lot of videos made now.

How are you doing on your videos you made on Pinterest. I should go and look at how many views you have.

I am waiting to get accepted to pinerly as well.

Thanks for popping in and have a great week.

Hey Dee Ann – I like many people am a Pinterest addict. I don’t think it’s totally mainstream yet though and is pretty much for people that are already social media addicts like me.

The stats game is really addictive and I think sometimes it takes the joy out of the blogging or sharing. I’m trying to limit my stat watching these days!

Bailey Ana,

Pinterest can be addictive. I try to stay off of most of the social sites while I am working and only look at them a limited amount of time each day.

Stats are also addictive and I am with you, I avoid most of them most of the time.

It is nice check on them every now and then just to make sure I am headed in the right direction.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

To be honest i still have not joined Pinterest, i am still a bit unsure about it personally. Business wise our company blogs have it and they are going strong. I think checking your analytic’s is very important, so that you are able to make a decision if things are not turning out the way you had hoped. Two great links that are worth keeping an eye on, Thank you.

Pinterest is a fun site, you should try it. I have found so many things son it that are fun to do and make.

Stats are important as long as we do not let them rule our lives. I try to keep track of my stats but am not obsessed with them.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

I really like Pinterest. It has a lot of possibilities for internet marketers. I think I requested an invitation to Pinerly but never heard back.

How’s that service working for you?

I love Pinterest both personally and for my blog. It has a lot of really neat stuff on it.

Hi Dee Ann,

It must be a great feeling knowing your video is getting all those hits. I’m happy for you.

At the same time, yep looks like Pinerest is getting popular. I still have to get used to the site, seems simple though, I think.

It’s all about images, sharing images, leaving comments, liking images and repining.

You wrote this post back in April and Pinerly still hasn’t come out with the stats. Put my email on the waiting list though, Thanks.

About the plug-in, I must be careful about the amount of plug-ins a put into my blog. I take it you can log on to Pinerest and do all those things when you are there.

Thanks for sharing Dee Ann,

Terry Conti

Ok, I have missed all of the comments that you have made recently.

I have definitely not done well in the past couple of months answering comments.

I agree with you on plugins. I choose not to use the plugin as well. I am very careful how many plugins I use.

Thanks Terry for coming by.
