Pinterest has fast become one of the best social networking websites in the world and its user base has grown significantly over the past year or two. Pinterest is now a great way for people to share your content and as a webmaster, you should really think about promoting your content on the site. Here, we have 10 of the best plug-ins for WordPress that will help you with your Pinterest marketing efforts.
#1 – Pinterest Plugin
This plugin has a bit of a dull name but basically, it will allow you to add a Pin It button to all of the images that you would like to add it to on your website, allowing visitors to quickly and easily pin your content.
#2 – Pinterest Image Pin
Here we have a similar Pinterest plug-in that will actually add a button below your images and will even count how many times your content has been pinned if you would really like to.
#3 – Pin It button
The Pin It Plugin will allow you to add a Pin It button to your WordPress posts in absolutely no time at all. You can select where you want the button to be and even if it shows a pin count or not.
#4 – Digg Digg
This plug-in is not actually only for Pinterest, but for a variety of social networking websites but we thought we’d include it as it is one of the best. It basically adds a share bar to each of your posts.
This is a clever little plug-in that will automatically post your posts on social networks including Pinterest, allowing you to focus on other, more important things.
WordPress galleries are popular and this plug-in will allow you to add a button to every image within your WordPress galleries quickly and easily. It will appear under each thumbnail.
#7 – Pinterest Lightbox
This plug-in is pretty self-explanatory as it basically adds a Pinterest button to the lightbox pop up on your blog. Millions of blogs use the lightbox plugin so this is a great way to get your visitors to share your content.
#8 – Pinboard Widget
This is a really neat little plug-in that will allow you to be able to show a number of recent pins from your account on your blog in the form of a widget. This can be placed in the sidebar or elsewhere.
#9 – Pinterest RSS Widget
This plug-in is very similar to the one we mentioned in number 9 but it allows you to customise it a little bit more. You can change thumbnail dimensions, titles and much more with this plug-in.
#10 – WP Pinner
This is one of my favourite plug-ins as it actually allows you to organise your Pinterest account from within your WordPress dashboard, eliminating the need to visit the Pinterest website at all really.
