Saved Queries in Pinboard

July 16, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] |

This is the dumbest and most useful trick I have for Pinboard (in a long line of dumb Pinboard tips). Perform a search in the Pinboard web app.1

Pin Search

Now bookmark the resulting page in Pinboard. It's pin-ception! I tag the bookmark with _query so I can see all of my saved queries on one Pinboard page.

A Pinboard search can be limited to either just your own bookmarks or everyone's. I give them a meaningful title to differentiate.

Pinboard Titles

This also means I have access to saved queries anywhere I have access to Pinboard.
