Engagement on Pinterest is the activity level that users have with the content you post.
Beyond your community and the number of followers you have, engagement considers the interactions you achieve with your content on your Pinterest account.
Pinterest engagement factors
Each social network calculates the engagement differently, including in the formula different factors.
Before I explain the Pinterest engagement formula, let’s review the factors included in the calculation.
The number of pins that Pinterest users have saved to their respective profiles.
To calculate the saved pin rate, the total saved pins are divided by the times the posted pins have been on the screen.
Clicks on Pin
The total clicks you have obtained on a pin or ad inside or outside the social network.
The rate of clicks is obtained by dividing the total clicks by the times your Pins or ads were shown on the screen.
The number of times users perform actions that take them to a destination outside of Pinterest: online stores, other social networks, etc.
The outbound click rate is calculated by dividing the total clicks on the destination URL on your Pin by the number of times your Pin was on screen.
In addition to those mentioned above, Pinterest also considers as interactions:
✅ Pins’ Carousel card swipes
✅ Secondary creative (collections) clicks
✅ Idea Pin forward/backward swipes
