Using Pinterest category list to organize and group some of my Pinterest profile’s boards is an effective method that I’ve ventured lately. This article illustrates the application of this classification method to Pinterest Group Boards World, one of my profiles that serves as a Pinterest directory of group boards.
Are your Pinterest boards badly grouped or not organized at all ?
Don’t know how to group your boards? What are the better ways to brand your Pinterest profile with the right charming personality?
How To Organize Your Pinterest Profile’s Boards with Pinterest Category List
Are you happy with the current mosaic tile styled Pinterest boards layout? How are you grouping your boards? Do you sort your boards into groups and arrange accordingly for better navigation and experience of your profile visitors?
You can definitely get some good organizing tips and examples in this article on all the above problems so that you can manage your Pinterest profile well.
Most of my Pinterest Profiles have many boards and I know I have to organize them systematically. I would prefer to group similar boards together. A simple way would be to group your boards according to the official Pinterest category list. With the list, the boards are classified and grouped together and arrange accordingly.
How To Label Your Groupings of Pinterest Boards
There is one big concern. How do your visitors know your grouping explicitly? Are there any good ways to enhance their navigation?
There is no space to label your grouping of the Pinterest profile boards. I only know it in my own head about the grouping. How would visitors read your mind?
Special Pinterest Category Boards
For example, I can add a new special board at the start of the Art category and name it as Category: Art. After this category board, all the boards that fall under this art category would be group together one by one. Now I can repeat the same process for all the other boards, all group according to the official Pinterest category list.
Let’s look at my Pinterest Group Boards World‘s profile below. The first board is the Welcome board. The secod board is a branding board for this Piterest profile. The third board is the Category:Animals board that I use to group all boards in the animal category.
How to find the official Pinterest Category List
When you are at your Pinterest profile page, you can see the category only when you are adding new boards. To see the full listing as shown below, you will need to go to your Pinterest home page.
For example, if you are at your profile page with the url address as www.pinterest.com/pinmastery, you just need to remove pinmastery from your url address in the browser, i.e. you get www.pinterest.com/. With this removal, your Pinterest home page would appear as shown in the image below:

Pinterest Group Boards World’s Special Category Boards
Below are the full listing of the Pinterest Group Boards World’s special category boards with names that matched exactly with that of the official Pinterest category listing as stated above.
These are added to the first board of each of the category grouping of the Pinterest Group Boards World’s Profile page. These would systematically organize the boards of this directory into proper category.
The visual clarity of these special boards would ease navigation to the right category of your choice. This would ensure better user experience and enhance the brand of my profile.
