Retrieves the number of pins on Pinterest

Description

Takes a URL and returns a data frame with the original URL and the number of pins on Pinterest. The function accepts the optional variable sleep.time (default=0) to avoid hitting API limits (if implemented). Use sleep.time to define the number of seconds the function will wait before proceeding to the next URL. If the URLs are shortened, you will have to first resolve them using the function get_url().

Usage

get_pinterest(links, sleep.time = 0)

Arguments

links

URL to be tracked on Pinterest

sleep.time

Number of seconds the function will wait before proceeding to the next URL
