15 Pinterest Plugins for WordPress
If you are currently using wordpress for your website or blog as well as Pinterest to proliferate your visual content then you have come to the right place. For WordPress users the four native widgets offered by Pinterest are not the only options available to help share your visual content. The plugins on this list are streamlined to make it easier and more appealing than ever for visitors of your site to share your content and ultimately boost traffic back to your site.Although this is not a complete list of all available plugins, it is a good (and rather extensive) collection of highlights that will serve well in raising your consciousness and giving you an understanding of what is out there.
3. Digg DiggRather than have a single isolated ‘Pin it” button on your pages it may be more desirable for you to combine your social network sharing buttons into a single tidy item. One of the best options out there to do this is the Digg Digg share bar. The Digg Digg Share bar is an especially nice choice due to the very large number of social networks that are supported. The share bar can be displayed either vertically or horizontally at the top of the page or as a floating side bar. There is also the option for advanced users to place the bar anywhere they like inside their pages. Instructions to do this are given directly inside the Digg Digg plugin menu inside of your dashboard.
14. WP PinnerThe functionality of WP Pinner is a great deal more extensive than most of the other entries on this list. WP Pinner claims to be an entire Pinterest dashboard inside of your WordPress admin area. The idea, according to the developers, is to get more out of Pinterest while not having to spend as much tiem on the site. According to wppinner.com plugin functions include: scheduled pins, auto-pin wordpress posts, auto-follow pinterest users and analytics options. WP Pinner cannot be found inside the wordpress.org plugin directory. Instead, free access to wp pinner beta can be found at wppinner.com.
15. Pinterest BlockTo conclude this list of WordPress plugins geared to increasing the share-ability of your content on Pinterest I will finish with a plugin that does the exact opposite. This little gem enables you to select global areas of your blog/site (eg. Home, archives, pages, posts etc.) that visitors will be incapable of pinning images from. This can be done on a page by page or post by post basis.
