What about sharing pins? Can you share more than 1x per day? I have been.

Absolutely. If you are saving other people’s Pins, just do it like you would as a regular user (ie., you wouldn’t save 100 chocolate cake recipes - probably). Remember that the focus should be on your content. You can absolutely share more than one Pin to your content every day. Just don’t share the same Pin over and over.

I listened to this while I was driving (I didn’t look :slight_smile: just listened)… I have a client that Pins every daily blog post into several Boards and accounts – as it is our 3rd highest referrer so we like to feed it.
