Would you like to learn how to embed your Pinterest pins on your website?
Embedding a Pinterest pin on a website or blog post is something every website owner should learn as it can help their pins receive more exposure. People can repin the pin directly from the website by clicking on the ‘Pin It’ button on the embedded pin. They can also click on the pin and check out the enlarged version.

2. Next, click on the share button on the top right corner of the pin.
3. In the dropdown menu that appears, click on ‘Your Website’.
4. This will take you to a place where you can preview the pin. If you like how it looks you can embed it.
5. Below the preview there will be two things you need to add. The first one is a script tag, which you need to add to the bottom of your page, just above the closing tag.
6. The second one is a link which you need to copy and paste, exactly where you would like the pin to appear.
Once you perform all the above steps and save your settings, your pin will be embedded on your website.
People can now repin this pin, they can click on it and see the expanded version, they can also check out the board or the pinner by clicking on the details which can be found on the bottom of the pin.
