Pinterest isn’t going anywhere.

The cork board social media site has become mass adopted and is quickly becoming a daily destination for millions of consumers.

The popularity on Pinterest of stunning real estate photos as well as beautiful architectural content make it a great match for Realtors.

One of the most important things to savvy web marketers is traffic. Often this traffic comes in from what we call a backlink from a large site (a link from Pinterest to a specific page on your website where the image that was pinned appeared originally).

This morning I stumbled upon a cool trick to instantly locate all of your website’s backlinks on Pinterest.

Here’s how:

Enter the following URL into your browser bar http://Pinterest.com/source/YOURWEBSITE.com/

Using InmanNext as an example it would be http://Pinterest.com/source/Next.Inman.com/

This will display a page on Pinterest of every pin that originated on the site you ask it for! You can check any website using this trick, not just your own.
