Story Pin Suggestion

I am not sure if I am missing it, but is there a way to link the story pin to my website? I love the story pins, but they are a lot of work if they cannot generate traffic.

here is @PinterestGabby response in another thread, perhaps the one she tried to link. "we’re always experimenting with new products and features, and sometimes we iterate on a product to improve your experience. The most recent version of Story Pins does not support links, but you may see Story Pins that were published using a different version of the product. Hope this helps! 📌

While links would be great. In the mean time there seems to be priority to the stories and like videos I see more activity faster which is bringing general increase in monthly viewers and other on Pinterest stats, which could drive to website. I think that is happening in my experience.

Oh gosh...well, now everyone here knows my love for Willie Nelson. 😅

I just updated my comment with a link to the correct thread, but @ideachicretail is right! Thank you for the assist there, btw.

LOL - 

I will say, I love the idea of the story pins and how they function, but they do take a good amount of time to create them. For me personally, in order to invest the time, I would need it to be able to link to my site. Especially because my site focuses on food, I need a way to get my audience the entire recipe and instructions.
