Is there any way of "repinning" them so that they appear in the feed again, without reposting?
I don't think so, but it only takes a few minutes to remove the old photo and click a new one in.
Great question. Pinterest used to be my main source of referrals, now it got bumped down byGoogle, but Pinterest is still up there.
I have tried three things to revamp old pins, but I am open to suggestions.
To keep pins fresher I have:
1. Added a new photo as first picture in the article and pinned that with an edited caption.
2. Created a second Pinterest folder on that topic and repinned the same image to the new folder (months later).
3. Hovering the mouse over any other photo in the article, the Pinterest symbol shows up and you can pin a different image for the same article.
Basically, you remove the former pin and replace it with the current one?
But doesn't that make a pin unavailable to anyone who re-pinned it? Or are re-pins copies, so it doesn't matter?
It just a bit of an effort to have to re-upload a photo, copy and caption and save it to a board so that it appears in the feed again. The ability to re-tweet our own tweets on Twitter is so convenient.
I generally make an image and upload that to Pinterest and then add a URL and caption and a sprinkling of relevant hashtags. The other option is "save from site", by adding a URL and letting Pinterest pickup a series of images from which one can be chosen.
Is there an advantage of one method over the other?

After reading the forums about using wide capsules and carefully captioning each one, I went back yesterday to the first four or five hubs I published and upgraded them. I widened the first photo, where possible, and wrote a more pertinent caption, and did the same with all the...

http://www.pinterest.com/source/hubpages.com/Looks like there are no hubs on Pinterest (I noticed no Pinterest traffic today and had to investigate.)Hubs are no longer pinnable.I wish hubbers wouldn't spam social networks. :\

One of my hubs has hit 10,000 pins! It's racing ahead of my others with the next closest sitting at 4,000 pins.Yes, this is why it's a good idea to create images made with Pinterest users in mind. Pinterest is now my top traffic source after Google.

Has anyone else noticed a dramatic decrease in traffic from Pinterest, especially those of you that get good traffic from them? It has always been my big source of traffic.They have changed the way they do the feeds, and unfortunately it has affected my traffic from them, and not in a good...

It seems my answers got lost in the last thread. So here is the simple way to get pins. Make an image like the one above (with your hub title), place it on your hub and leave it. That's it. It's simple. Using this technique I have over 30,000 pins on my hubs. Yes, it IS that simple, although I have...

For those of you who get a lot of your traffic from Pinterest, they've been having some problems lately. First of all they took a recent pretty hard slap from Google for a lot of well ranking keywords. They were forcing people to "sign in to see more" and Google is forcing...
