How To Find Your Pinterest Board or User RSS Feed

pinterest logoRe-purpose Your Pinterest
For Blog Posts And More!

One of the most versatile website tools we have is available are RSS feeds!

You probably now where to find the RSS feed for most of your social sites… but did you know that your Pinterest account has RSS feeds too? 

It’s pretty easy to find and really useful for a number of social and SEO tasks. 

Here’s where to find them… 

View a USER RSS feed by going to the user’s Pinterest URL, and adding /feed.rss to the end of the link.

Like this example: (my username is ‘askkim’)
http://pinterest.com/askkim/feed.rss

View a specific BOARD feed by going to the board URL, replace the final / with .rss

Like this example: (my board name is ‘noms’)
http://pinterest.com/askkim/noms.rss

You can do all sorts of things with these feeds including bookmarking, pinging, exporting, syndicating and more.  One example of this would be to add the feed URL to the RSS Linkbomber plugin for syndication.

Many ESPs (email service providers) such as Aweber also support turning feeds into newsletters so you might consider playing with that as an alternative too if you are an avid Pinterest user!

Be sure to follow me on Pinterest

As you can see these RSS feeds from your Pinterest account and Pinterest boards are really flexible so be sure to have fun!

I still don’t know enough about the potential of Pinterest and this is very useful to me. I would never think of RSS feed on my own.

I am still new at this! I never tried using Pinterest boards yet and never yet determine there RSS feed. Thanks for a great knowledge!

My pleasure Chanikacha! Pinterest is a lot of fun. I suggest you try it out casually and get a feel for just enjoying it before looking at the business angle. That helps you understand what will and won’t attract others :)

It certainly seems that Pinterest is more than just a place for pinning pictures, I’ll have to check out the WP plugin.

What I would like though is a way of automatically pinning my movie reviews from my blog on to my movie reviews board. Just a thought ;)

Hey Karen, I think we’d all like an auto pinning plugin. Unfortunately Pinterest yet has no full-featured external API so that is probably a ways off. We also must consider that such a plugin will violate the TOS rules against self-promotion which we already have to tread very carefully around. It’s going to be interesting to see how this progresses!

Great tip Kim, as a very visual person Pinterest is a natural for me. I’ll definitely have to f/u on the RSS feel – though I’m not ready to start investing $$$ in plugins to promote it at this point.

Hey Marquita, I totally understand. Everyone is using Pinterest at different levels yet (and that’s appropriate) so everyone needs different tools. I think it’s great that you are clear about what you need at this time. Pinterest is definitely natural for visuals which make up something like 60% of the population!

Yorinda, that’s a great question. What’s important to remember is that pinterest is not hosted on WordPress. The /feed/ works for WordPress sites but not for non-wordpress sites which are all very different. Pinterest happens to require /feed.rss but other sites need slightly different formats to get their feeds. I hope that makes sense!

Wow!I’ve just tried that feed.rss thing and it really works! I wouldn’t picture myself that Pinterest Boards have rss feeds, too. Thanks for the useful information!

Kim, I got a bit confused when you talked about sharing pins to your own Wordpress blog. Are you planning on doing this at some point in the future? Also, is it okay to use pins as pictures within a blog post, or would that pose a copyright difficulty for pins using photos that are not creative commons licensed?

Kim – this is so helpful! The feed is working fine for my RSS, but when I click a picture on my website (from the feed) it gives me a 404 website not found error? Any suggestions?

Reply

Fran August 22, 2012 at 3:54 pm

I am looking for a way to get the list of board names from a given username. I know pinterest already provides rss for all the pins from a given user and for all the pins from a given pinboard.

All Pins from a given user: pinterest.com/[user]/feed.rss

All pins from a given user and board: pinterest.com/[user]/[board-name]/rss

Now I need a way to get the list of boards from a given user, not the pins. I know there is a way to do it because -> pinreach.com does it.
