Pinterest's Rich Pins automatically enhance your pins with extra information from your website.

For StoryChief these are mostly Article Pins, where your article's title and description will be automatically added to your Pin.

A side-by-side comparison is shown below.

Activating your Rich Pins

You website won't have Rich Pins enabled by default. Activating them is a simple 3-step process:

Step 1. Visit this link.

Step 2. Enter the URL of one of your blog pages and press validate

Step 3. Select HTML-tags and press 'Apply now'

If you would get any errors, you'll need to fix those before you will be able to apply. Ask your developer to handle those, since it is based on OG-tags (Open Graph) it is also important for other social media.

Once activated, all your Pins for that website will be shown as Rich Pins automatically.
