Finding Your Work On Pinterest PART 2

Don't forget this multi-page search tip

In your browser's address bar, replacing "mywebsite.com" by your own domain name, type the following:


This page represents a selection of new, original pins, directly from your website. Repins don't show up on this page. Recently, it has been updated close to real-time. In Firefox, open the thumbnail images in new tabs. For your DMCA notice, you need the LINK-OUT URL and the IMAGE location on Pinterest's servers. The Pin URL is quite useless, if you choose to report Pin URLs instead of Image URLs, you'll spend a lifetime chasing repins. Do not use the DMCA interactive form on the Pinterest website. Right-click on the large images and COPY LINK LOCATION and paste in an Excel worksheet, followed by COPY IMAGE LOCATION, also to be pasted in the Excel worksheet.

Type the following addresses in your browser's address bar, replacing "mywebsite.com" by your own domain name, as you might uncover older, original pins:


Pages stop at 9.

You might find quite a bit of hidden material there. Again, from all these images, click and open a new tab. Then from these tabs, collect the LINK LOCATION and the IMAGE LOCATION.

PRO-TIP #1: Find the ZOOM OPTION in your browser's View Menu. It will shrink everything on the page, so that you'll see more images per screen shot. You may have to squint to read the works, but Pinterest isn't for reading!

PRO-TIP #2: Even if your multi-page search comes up empty, and you've had all of its content removed via DMCA, IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT THERE ISN'T MORE OF YOUR CONTENT. You could still have thousands of images on Pinterest. A lot of is simply doesn't make it to that page.
