Having some success getting visits from people on Pininterest. How about a Pinterest widget to go along with the other social widgets?

Hi KanThaiDecor

Thanks for sharing this idea. Yola is currently exploring the potential of Pinterest, and we will definitely consider offerring a Widget if it looks promising.

Great....As I said I am getting some results using Pininterest and I just recently started. I think the cool thing about it, that makes it a bit different is that it is based on people seeing an image they like and can quickly pin it to their page.

Please add Pinterest to the sharing widget alongside Twitter, Facebook and Google+

It's a really valuable tool for promoting content and product!

Pinterest added more website/business features today including analytics and new SEARCH....If you sell products you really should consider a business page there.

Here is what I got from Pininterest a few minutes ago ......

We’ve approved your rich pin application! Now pins from your website will show extra information based on the tags you’ve added.

Now I need to focus on getting ALL my product pages tagged correctly using the schema mark up generator I found.

Congratulations KTD. I'm very interested to see how this works out and the process of adding the mark-up outcome.

Thanks and I am interested too !!! So many of the things that were supposed to help us small site owners were a total waste of time . . . Have to keep chipping away at getting better anyway!

Yes. I think that e-commerce for SME's will continue to evolve for a little while yet. There's certainly a lot of new strategies and experiments coming through.

Are you using Tumblr for your site? I know that when it was introduced here that you recognised that it wasn't a real business option but now seems as if they are directing their energies to individual small businesses also?

No I am not using Tumblr . . . I have many years invested in my on site blog and the SEO having a blog on your site offers. Yahoo bought Tumblr which does not inspire me much. When they have problems their answer always seems to be cut services . . . I will check it out again though.
