Adding a Pinterest “Pin It” button to your site makes it super easy for your users to pin your images or pages, effectively sharing them through their Pinterest page. This not only makes it simple for your users who also use Pinterest to bookmark your pages and revisit them, but by sharing your content on Pinterest, it can help to increase traffic to your site as well.
The Pinterest “Pin It” Button plugin allows you to quickly and easily add a Pinterest button to your pages and posts. It’s lightweight, easy to install, and you don’t need to be a developer or access the source code in order to use it. The features of the free version are extensive. With the “lite” version, you can either pre-select the image that will accompany your pin, or allow the user to choose one out of the images from the page or post. You can also customize the Pin It button according to Pinterest’s official color and size recommendations. The Pin It button can be hidden from certain pages or posts that you don’t want to be pinned, and on the flip side, you can also include the Pin It Button on any page or post you want using the Pin It shortcode that the plugin provides.
If you’d like to upgrade to the free version, it includes 30 custom Pin It button designs, plus the option to upload your own button icon. It also comes with WooCommerce support, which may be worth it if you’re running WooCommerce ecommerce on your site.
