We talk about the Pin It button a lot around here, and that’s because it’s a pretty big deal. It’s what Pinners use to save things they find around the web, an easy-to-add tool that gets your business on Pinterest.
We’re now bringing the Pin It button to even more platforms, including Tumblr, Blogger, WordPress.org and Wix. These new integrations will make adding the Pin It button to your site a snap. (Psst: if your site isn’t powered by those platforms, you can get the button from us the usual way.)
Here are instructions for each:
You can add the Pin It button or the hovering Pin It button to your Tumblr blog. Get instructions from our Help Center.
The Pin It button is now one of the default sharing buttons on Blogger. This button will automatically pick up the first image in the post, set the description to the format: “Blog title: blog post title” and will set the URL to the permalink of the blog post. For more detailed instructions, visit our Help Center.
You can add the hovering Pin It button to your WordPress.org blog. Just install our plugin, choose the button you want, and you’re all set.
The Pin It button is now native to your Wix.com page editor. That Pin It button will create a Pin based off of the image and description you specify and will link back to the page of the site you’re on when you click the button. For more detailed instructions, visit our Help Center.
We’ll continue to add new integrations so stay tuned for more!
