Are You Really Need To Focus On Pinterest Pin Size?

Pinterest Pin Size

Every Pinterest creator has this question – What is the best Pinterest Pin size for the images. In this post you will know about the confusion on dimension of the pin.

Well this time Pinterest recommending video pins for the creator, this is more engaging, high performing and you can reach maximum visitors on your single video pins. And this actually works well, I tried many videos pins and the result is socking.

When I see the video pins performance – views are massive, but link click is very low compare to the standard pin, then I realize that my Pinterest pin size is not optimized for Pinterest, then I change the size of my video pins and the results are same but link click is more then my older video pins.

So just like video pins, the standard pin has an optimal size for mobile viewers, because Pinterest is a mobile application and maximum traffic comes from mobile devices so the Pinterest pin size is also like the mobile size, the size gives the best experience for mobile users and that is the right pin size.

Is very long Pin(2000*2000) size really works? in my case long size pin not working but 1000*1800 works great, and I am experimenting on my Pinterest pins, so you have to experiment with your pin size,

and see the performance each pins and select the best performing pin size. In this post i will discuss about the best performing pin sizes that you can choose for your images.

What Is The Best Performing Pinterest Pin Size?

Many creators use long pin size, Why some times long pins are get massive traffic and attention? because if you open your Pinterest app and go to the home feed and see the pins,

you can see the long pins are on top, because viewers get more attention on long pin and then they decide to checkout the pin,

and if the pin design are really good or telling something interesting on the pin then viewers decided to

checkout the website and the result is more traffic comes on that pin, so this is how long pin are working in some cases.

Remember that long size pin won’t works every time, you have to experiment with sizes with small to large sizes, You can see some times small pins are performing well but not getting link clicks on that pin.

Optimal Pinterest pin size
Optimized Pin size – 1000*1500

Pinterest recommending 1000*1500 size for pin images, this is the optimal size but my case this size not working well so right now i am using 1000*1800 for the pin,

and this size is really works and gets for link click compare to the official Pinterest pin size, but you have to try different pin sizes that works well.

you have to write some interesting text on your pin, then people are more likely to click on your pin.
