Always Get Attribution for Your Photos on Pinterest in 5 Easy Steps
And that’s where Flickr comes in. By using Flickr, which has a partnership with Pinterest to provide attribution details for pins, you can ensure you always get attribution.
1. Join Flickr. You need an account, obviously.
2. Upload your photo or photos to Flickr. Make sure you add information in the description and tag fields. Include the photo in any sets you might have and target it to groups, too.
That won’t help for getting attribution on Pinterest, but it will help in getting your photos more eyeballs on the photo-sharing site.
3. Grab the HTML or BBCode from the photos you want to use. This is the code you need. When viewing an individual photo, click “Share” button, and then “Grab the HTML/BBCode.”
4. Embed the code in your blog post. Just paste the code wherever you want to to be in the blog post. Tweak the formatting as you see fit.
5. Publish your blog post. Yeah, you can’t get attribution unless your content is published. So now it’s just a matter of time until your content gets pinned, and your attribution shows up on Pinterest.
(As you can see in the example on this blog post, my Flickr name, polleydan, shows up on the Pinterest pin just below the text box.)
