Much like Facebook Insights for Pages and Google Analytics, PinReach (formerly PinClout) is an analytics service that helps Pinterest users monitor trends and gauge their success on the site.

To sign up, simply enter your Pinterest username, choose a PinReach username, and fill in your email and your desired password. Once you confirm your new log-in information through your email, you will be able to view how your PinReach score (similar to a Klout score) or influence on Pinterest has changed over time. With this information, any user can figure out how to best increase user engagement on his Pinterest page and up his overall influence across the site.

The website PinPuff is a similar service that enables users to measure their influence, reach, and virality on Pinterest and will even assign a Pinfluence score and show the monetary value of a user's pins.
