DocStoc: users that pin 650% more likely to search docs
DocStoc maintains the world’s best collection of documents needed to start, manage, and grow your business and professional life. Their customers who use IE9 and have DocStoc pinned to their Windows 7 taskbar viewed 229% more pages and were 650% more likely to search for documents (over 60 days measured). They made three simple enhancements to their site to improve their customers’ pinning experience:
DocStoc’s goal was to build relationships with their customers leading to more document searches. As Jason Nazar, CEO put it:
“IE9’s pinning feature has enabled us to create an even more immediate relationship with our users. They don’t have to be browsing and still they are one mouse click away from the documents that will best help them manage and grow their small business. We can also constantly market our newest content without having to worry about email deliverability and open rates. Pinning represents a great new customer communication tool for us.”
Pinning gives your site a front row seat
The combination of IE9 share growth on Windows 7, feature discoverability of pinning, and the measureable customer engagement gains, make pinning an attractive feature for sites.

BuildMyPinnedSite, the gears aren't working for me. No code shows up.
Thanks for this article! I tried adding a jump list to my blog when I first heard about Wordpress.com sites having it build in. Alas, all of the web articles I read had no working solutions.
I've got a jump list working on my site now, so thank you!
Pinning is a great feature to have :)
I hadn't seen this blog post until today but tried making my self-hosted Wordpress blog be pinned over the weekend. The sad part is that none of it worked. I figured it was a Wordpress issue so I downloaded a plugin that helped, kind of. It got IE9 to have the jump list but the icon doesn't always appear on IE9, even after clearing cache and history. It always appears on Google Chrome though.
Even as I drag the tab to pin it, I can see the favicon.ico but it doesn't show up on my taskbar or desktop. Weird because some days it magically will show the favicon on IE9and some days it won't. Same thing goes for the navigation colors I set. Some days IE9 shows them and sometimes it doesn't.
Any suggestions? My site, if someone wants to test it, is slythefox.com
Anyone on the IE team have a suggestion regarding my earlier post?
