Pinterest Site Verification: How to Get Your Website Verified

What is Pinterest site verification? It’s the process of connecting your website to your Pinterest account. This allows you to access more advanced analytics on Pinterest and Tailwind, as well as placing your website logo on all your pins. There are three ways to get verified: updating your site’s meta tags, uploading HTML files, or adding the verification via a host.

Options #1: Updating Meta Tags

First, go to your Pinterest profile and hit the edit button, then click “confirm website.” This will bring up a page with some code on it; you’ll need to copy the code. Go to your website’s content management system and look for an index.html where you can edit your website’s code. After accessing the code, go to the <head> section, and paste the Pinterest code underneath it, make sure to save the changes. Go back to Pinterest and click finish.

Option #2: Uploading HTML Files

Go to the Pinterest page with the previously mentioned code, but click “download file.” Make sure not to rename the file when it downloads. Then upload the file to a root server, like public_html, www, or wwwroot. Then click finish on Pinterest.

Option #3: Verifying Through Website Hosts

There are currently 19 website hosts that offer Pinterest site verification. Three of the most popular are WordPress, Tumblr, and Blogger.

WordPress

Download the WordPress plugin: “Pinterest Verify.” Copy the content section of the Pinterest code mentioned earlier. Login to WordPress, then go to the settings and click “Pinterest verify.” Then paste the content code into the WordPress page and click save. Then go back to Pinterest and hit finish.

Tumblr

First, copy the code from Pinterest, then log on to your Tumblr and go to settings. Click on your blog name and go to “edit theme” before clicking “edit HTML.” Paste the code into the <head> section and click save, then go to Pinterest and click finish.

Blogger

Copy the Pinterest code, sign in to Blogger and head to the template section, then hit “edit HTML.” Copy the code into <head>, and go back to Pinterest and click finish.
