New York, NY, United States, 2012/04/16 - Repinly.com, a new directory and stats website has been created for Pinterest users who want to promote their accounts and interact with influential pinners.
There’s an old adage that says first impressions are lasting impressions and thanks to a new website, Repinly.com, it’s now possible to get clear insights and stats of Pinterest and to find top pinners public profiles, popular boards, and trending pins on Pinterest.
“Repinly.com is a Pinterest directory to find the most popular pinners, boards, and pins,” said Rami Madi, co-founder of Repinly.com. “It offers a clear overview and statistics on what is trending now in different categories on Pinterest.”
Madi added that Repinly.com offers invaluable stats and tools for Pinterest users to promote their accounts and connect with other pinners.
The launching of the first Pinterest directory and stats website could prove to have perfect timing. According to Experian Hitwise, an industry leader in online consumer search and behavior intelligence, last month Pinterest passed its closest competitor, LinkedIn and became the third most popular social network in the U.S., behind Facebook and Twitter with traffic up nearly 50% in February.
“Our website offers a great opportunity for Pinterest users to promote their account by adding themselves to our directory,” Madi stressed. “Once users add themselves to the directory, they get a score based on their number of followers, pins, and activity, which indicates their influence on Pinterest in comparison with other pinners.”
Jason Thomas, 34, of Houston, an avid Pinterest user, said he’s certain he’ll give Repinly.com a shot.
“It’s totally awesome to be able to use this to get the extra edge I need to successfully promote products and brands on Pinterest,” Thomas said. “I’ve always wished something like this existed and now that I know one does, I’m all in. I can’t wait to try it.”
Madi explained that Repinly.com offers in-depth social metrics around Pinterest.
“It is an important source to understand the market and to know what is popular and hot in different categories on Pinterest,” Madi noted.
Madi said that he and his partners started Repinly.com after they used Pinterest to promote their products and were looking for a website to promote their accounts and to find what's hot and trending on Pinterest in order to understand their customers.
“When we couldn't find this, we decided to build it,” Madi said.
When asked about the most surprising thing the new site has revealed about Pinterest, Madi said,“We never expected that food is the most popular topic on Pinterest and a garlic bread recipe got the most repins.”
