Once I figured out this genius Pinterest hack, it was a game changer for my blog. Today I am going to show you how to put hidden vertical pins in your blog post.
When scrolling on Pinterest, you will notice that a long, vertical pin will grab your attention more than a horizontal pin. Notice the difference between these two pins from The Butter Half.
Both are incredible, high-quality pins, but the one on the left will take up more room on Pinterest’s feed and stand out.
Even though this pin will look amazing on Pinterest, it may not look the best IN your blog post.
Here’s the secret code
<div style=”display: none;”>image code</div>
1. Create a long vertical pin using Photoshop, Picmonkey, or Canva with 800 x 1200 dimensions
2. Upload the image to your media library in WordPress and insert the image at the top of your blog post
3. In the HTML area, copy and paste the secret code below the image code
4. Copy and paste the entire embedded image code and insert it into the area where it says “image code”
5. Delete the above embedded image code so all that is left is the secret hidden code
6. Preview your blog post to check to see if the image is hidden
7. Ta-da! Your secret pin is now hidden on your blog post. To share this pin on Pinterest, you have to install the Pinterest “pin it” extension.
