    if say you have blog at


    each entry in the list will have a share this and the st_url=/blog/theentry (checked)

    Yet when you pin it assumes /blog, and links back to /blog not /blog/theentry

    If you visit /blog/theblogentry and link from there it does work as expected

    So therefore st_url is not used in determine which page to pin, only the page you are on.

    Hello User,

    Please note that Pinterest crawls the page to grab the data, for that it mainly uses Open Graph tags present on that site page.
    Sometimes it never fetches the data from "st" property, so in that case you can use the OG tags as "og:url" to specify the URL to be shared.

    For more information you can check both the properties from here -

    Hope this clarifies.
    Please feel free to contact us if you have any queries.
