I didn't see this mentioned here yet. Got to check it out. The article says the pinned images will be link back to the originating website.

Bing users can now easily share the images they find with their friends on Pinterest. Starting today, Bing’s image search will feature the standard Pinterest ‘Pinit’ button on every photo details page, ...

So if you use the NoPin code, does it work on these images? Or do you need to block Bing from image access?

Interesting to find out if the NOPIN code is being honored as MS could get some seriously bad PR over this if all the webmasters that think they're safe because of NOPIN is now finding things pinned all over the place.

Can anyone using NOPIN here that has images in Bing's image search report if those images can be pinned via Bing or not?

I've got my image folders disallowed so I can't speak tot he NOPIN question.

I'd like to know if the NOPIN thing works on this Bing deal though.

According to Helleborine:
The Bing pin-it button OVERRIDES the nopin metatag on the source website, this was tried by several people and found to be consistent.

Pictorial content is quite valuable; every corporation seems to want to steal it from the images creators these days.

Like ken_b, my images are not longer indexed by any search engine.
