3 New Features to Organize your Pinterest Account
As a Pinterest user, I love it when Pinterest announces new features. As a Pinterest marketer, I get worried! I want to be able to provide the best information to my readers to ensure that their accounts are optimized for driving traffic to their site. With the recent announcement from Pinterest, I think we can safely say that these will improve the organization of your Pinterest account without effecting your search optimization.
Feature 1: Archive Boards
This feature is going to be great for users who have outgrown some of their boards. I have lots of old boards that I no longer use or are not relevant to my account. You can literally take a board that you aren’t using (or perhaps you made secret) and archive it. As a Pinterest marketer, I do question or want to caution businesses against archiving boards. I recommend making irrelevant boards secret versus deleting because otherwise you will lose followers on certain boards. I’m not sure how archiving is different from deleting, so be careful of this new feature.
Feature 2: Reorder sections
Sections are a feature that launched in late Fall 2017. I discussed them in a blog post here and whether they improve your search. There isn’t a big personal pull for me to use them as a marketer. They were very glitchy in the beginning. Now, you can reorganize their order and appearance on your boards. This could be useful for you’ve desired to get them to appear a certain way.
Feature 3: Rearrange Pins
You can now move pins around within the boards! The day before writing this post, I had someone asking me how to move a pin within a board. Of course, the hack was to move that particular pin to another board and then pin some other pins to the board, followed by repining. Who has time for that? Now you can relocate a pin within a board!
So there you have it! Were any of these features on your wish list? It doesn’t seem like they would affect search at all, but it’s nice to know that these features exist when you want to organize your Pinterest account.
