Rich Pins are a type of organic Pin that automatically syncs information from your website to your Pins. You can identify rich Pins by the extra information above and below the image when you click into the Pin. If something changes on the original website, the rich Pin periodically updates to reflect that change.

Rich Pins are a free product available to anyone on Pinterest.

Types of rich Pins
  • Recipe rich Pins add a title, serving size, cook time, ratings, diet preference and a list of ingredients to recipes that you Pin from your site.
  • Article rich Pins add the headline or title, the description and the author of the article or blog post from your site.
  • Product rich Pins include the most up-to-date pricing, availability and product information right on your Pin.
  • Note: Article rich Pins and recipe rich Pins will automatically update to reflect any edits you may make on your site. We’ll only show information about your product rich Pin if you've met our merchant guidelines and the product is in stock.

    Validate your rich Pins

    You'll need to validate your rich Pins before you can start using them. This is to ensure your data syncs properly.

  • If you have product, article or recipe content on your site, you’ll need to add rich meta tags to those webpages.
  • After adding meta tags to your web pages, validate one of your correctly marked-up content pages in the Rich Pins Validator
  • If the webpage you are applying with is correctly marked-up, you’ll see an approval message
  • Once you apply, we’ll process your application within 24 hours.

    When your site is approved, all content from webpages that have the correct meta tags will appear as rich Pins when you create a new Pin. Existing Pins that link back to pages with rich meta tags will now appear as rich Pins.

    Remove rich Pin data

    If you want to remove rich Pin data from a specific page on your site, add this tag to the header of your page before the closing body tag:

    <meta name="pinterest-rich-pin" content="false" />

    The tag will override the rich Pin meta tags on that page only. All other pages on your site will remain unaffected unless you add the tag to those individual pages. If you ever want to turn rich Pins back on, remove this tag.

    Recipe Pins let you add a title, serving size, cook time, ratings, and a list of ingredients to recipes from your site. You can also display if a recipe is paleo, vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free. 

    Add recipe Pins to your site

    1. Add Schema.org or h-recipe markups between the <head> </head> section of your HTML code for each page you want to enable recipe rich Pins on.
    2. Use our Rich Pins Validator to make sure we can see the rich Pin data.
    3. If everything looks good, click Apply now. Make sure to pick HTML tags when applying.

    Recipe ratings

    You can add ratings info to your recipe rich Pins. To do so, add the meta tag needed via Schema.org markup. If you need help implementing ratings info to your site, visit Schema.org or take a look at this sample Pin to see how bettycrocker.com has set up their Pin.

    Note: ratings info can only be added using Schema.org markup (not h-recipe) and ratings info will only appear on iOS and Android devices.

    Schema.org and h-recipe markups

    Here are the required rich Pin fields for each type of markup. Edit the fields in black to reflect your recipes:

    Product Pins are a type of rich Pin that feature the most up-to-date price, availability, product title and description from your website. In some cases, your Pin might have a “Best seller” badge if it’s one of the most purchased items within a Pinterest product category across different merchants. Or, it might have a “Popular” badge if it’s one of the most clicked product Pins within a product category on Pinterest.

    Note: This info will only show up on your product Pins if your product is in stock, the price is accurate, we've updated the data recently and you meet our merchant guidelines.

    Why and how to add product Pins to your website

    Product Pins lead people on Pinterest to your site where they can purchase your products. This means people need to be able to buy the product directly from your website before you can add the product Pin to Pinterest.

    You can create product Pins on your website as outlined below or by using catalogs. Use catalogs to upload a data source of your products and create product groups to group similar product Pins together. Only product Pins created using catalogs can be promoted as shopping ads.

    Add product Pins to your website

    Add product Pins to your website so they can automatically sync information from your website to your Pins. If something changes on your website, the product Pins will update to reflect that change.

    1. Add Open Graph or Schema.org markups between the <head> </head> section of your HTML code for each page you want to enable product Pins on.
    2. Use our rich Pin validator to make sure we can see the rich Pin data.
