    1. Once you tap on the Analytics icon on the lower bar in the mobile app, you'll find all your Pinterest metrics categorized under three views: Pins, Boards, and Overview.
    2. Your Pins view provides a detailed view of the engagement on each Pin. You'll see the number of likes, views, saves, link clicks, and more. You can also filter your data by a selected date range.
    3. Your Boards view offers an in-depth breakdown of your overall engagement per Pinterest Board. Total impressions, closeups, link clicks, saves, video views & average watch times are shown for your last 100 Pins. You can view metrics for the last 7 or 30 days.

    What Metrics Should I Focus On?

    While it’s great to have so many insights from Pinterest, it can also be overwhelming! Certainly your brand goals ultimately drive what you hope to achieve with your Pinterest strategy. And because of that, we recommend focusing primarily on engagement metrics: link clicks & saves. These two metrics are key indicators that Pinterest users value your content & may even be visiting your website or blog from Pinterest.
