Embed a Pinterest Pin in a Blog Post


In addition to embedding a Pinterest Board, you can also embed a single pin in a blog post. There are some advantages to embedding a pin rather than just linking to a pin: the embedded pin automatically includes the image, and it also includes a link both to the pin page and to the Board that the pin comes from, along with your Pinterest username and avatar. So, if you think someone would be interested not just in the image but also in the Board that it comes from, then embed the pin! If you're in a hurry, you can always just link to a pin page, but if you have an extra minute, it's easy to embed the pin instead. 


Update: Chrystal has provided a detailed step by step with screenshots for this tip which you might find helpful too: How to Embed a Pin ... with Screenshots!


STEP ONE: Choose pin. Start by choosing the pin you want to embed. You need to have that pin's page open in one browser tab.


STEP TWO: Pin Builder. Next, open another tab in your browser and go to the Pinterest Widget Builder and choose "pin widget" on the left-hand menu, or else just follow this link: Pin Widget.


STEP THREE: Generate code. In the Pinterest Builder tab, paste in the web address (URL) of the pin you want to display and click "Build it!"  Then, just copy the code from the grey box and paste that into your blog post. For tips on copying and pasting HTML code, see the Embed Board Tech Tip.


STEP FOUR: Publish post. Now that you have pasted in the pin code, you are ready to publish your post! Did it work? If you see the embedded pin in your post, you're good to go! Make sure to include the phrase "Tech Tip: Embedded Pin" in your blog post title and use "Tech Tip" as the label on the post; then you can do the Declaration. 


I've embedded a pin here on this page so you can see what it looks like!
