After launching Analytics and Rich Pins, Pinterest has added another useful feature that is sure to benefit users as well as marketers. The new Pinterest feature allows users to search for previously pinned items with the help of keywords.
You can additionally use the provided filters such as searching by all pins or just your pins to get the desired results. This new feature allows you to search using your original pins as well as re-pins. For instance, you can quickly get that pinned recipe that you may have thought about cooking, by way of a matching search.
However, you need to first organize all your pins by using keywords in the form of descriptions. You will need to remember those keywords in order to retrieve your pins. So, it makes sense to use simple keywords or save them on your device for future retrieval.
The search results will include all publicly pinned items including those that have been pinned on group boards of others. However, the results will not display any secret pins or items that have not been pinned on group boards. Pinterest has informed users that it may take up to two days before any new pins can be included in search results although the company is trying to speed up its indexing process.
On your part, you will need to change the manner by which you type in descriptions as well as remember your keywords if you want to retrieve them efficiently in future. Pinterest could improve this feature in future by adding tags to pins, which in turn could eliminate the description field, based on its response to feedback.
You too can try the new Pinterest search feature for pins and post your feedback if you have ideas on further improving it. Until then, enjoy this useful new feature from Pinterest that has been launched for Pcs and laptops, and will soon be launched for mobiles.
