Online scrapbook Pinterest is rolling out new tools that will show businesses the number of visitors it delivers to their websites, part of the fast-growing start-up's efforts to forge closer ties to companies and build a base for the introduction of money-making features.

The latest offering -- known as Pinterest Web Analytics -- will give site owners insights into how people are interacting with "pins" that originate from their websites. The start-up company will announce the free offering on its blog on Tuesday.Pinterest To Offer New Web Analytics [reuters.com]
"The goal is really to help websites understand what content is resonating with people on Pinterest," Cat Lee, a product manager at Pinterest, told Reuters in an interview.

Copy the snippet of code below and paste it into the <head> section of any page on your site.

Perhaps they meant to say every page on your site.

That should keep you all busy for a while.

An .htaccess solution would be less onerous:

Header set X-Robots-Tag: "nopin"

But I don't know whether it works or not.

And it certainly should not be necessary.

I suppose the next "new" idea for a legitimate business model will be text scrapers that republish and monetise anything written on your website.

Wouldn't that be cool?

ehow already got there ..they added human re-spinners ( to disguise it ) and adsense ( from their pals at the plex ) to make boatloads of money off what isn't theirs ..

Pinterest invented "secret pinboards" [webmasterworld.com...] ( that is probably where they'll try putting ads first ) to hide the best stolen stuff from the rightful owners, who might be looking in the public facing stolen goods warehouse windows for their stuff..

Search engine's upload and search matching image search was getting too accurate for them to hide the stash in plain sight anymore..

For anyone reading ..this conversation thread with helleborine may also be useful..

I hate to be the bad guy but this silliness has gotten out of hand.

The topic is Pinterest ANALYTICS, not scraping or copyright.

Has anyone got anything worthwhile to contribute about the topic?
