Hi--another question from this newbie to Pinterest...
If I pinned a hub that originally had no photos, and have since updated it to include a photo, will it eventually update on Pinterest, or do I need to delete and re-pin?
If the hub originally had no photos, WHAT did you pin?
As long as the pinned image is actually relevant, there's no reason to remove it (unless it's got no repins and you want to).
I often find awesome articles online without good images, so I make my own MFP and link it back to the source.
Apparently, when you hit the "pin it" button near the bottom right of the hub, it takes the link to the article, and if there is no image in the article, it substitutes a generic Hub Pages "H" in white on a black background.
That's what showed up, and led me to check the Hub, where I discovered it needed a photo.
I'll be figuring Pinterest right along with you.
Ok--Part the Second:
I fixed the first issue--deleted & re-pinned, no problems.
The second item, I'm having a more difficult time. I pinned a hub, and the photo that was at the top was of my granddaughter. I decided after pinning that I did not want to splash her photo all over the Internet as the primary image, so I deleted the pin.
Next, I edited the Hub, and changed the sequence of the photos, so that it was a photo of myself that was at the top of the article. I then hit the "pin" button.
Guess what? Pinterest did not "see" the change, and again, it came up showing my granddaughter's photo. So, I deleted it again, hit refresh (both on Pinterest AND here on Hub Pages) and tried once again. Same exact result--the same photo as before shows up!! WTH???
Both photos are just about the same size, so that should not affect the matter. How do I fix THIS dilemma??
Upload the image manually then edit and insert the hub link.
You can click on the photo you want pinned and pin that. Pinterest also usually lets you choose from all the photos in the hub, so look for arrows that show you can use to move to a different image.
Maybe, wait 24 hours after deleting, before repinning?

I have a hub with five easy family recipes with my own photos. I found my photo on Pinterest with another hubbers address on it. I looked and she does seem to be the one that uploaded it to Pinterest. I was surprised over this.

There is a lot of discussion in the Forums now about whether or not we could (or should) write text on our photos to be pinned on Pinterest. Are we allowed to do this? Thanks.

Okay, Hubpages. I was giving you all kinds of love because you have a track record of being sensitive to copyright issues. Because of that, I'd started posting my original photo essays here even though they make more money elsewhere.Now, you've joined the ranks of sites more concerned about...

I have been pinning my Hubs on Pinterest for a few months now, and about 70 of my Hubs are now pinned. I have also had several of my pins to Hubs shared by others on Pinterest. Despite all of this, I do not have one single click from Pinterest showing up in my HubPages traffic...

Is anyone seeing a lot of traffic from Pinterest?I have had a huge jump in my traffic for one article that got pinned on Pinterest by someone else. I was wondering if anyone else has seen this kind of activity. Or if you could see the potential of using Pinterest as another avenue to...
