Verifying your Blog on Pinterest is a good for bloggers. Onceverified, Pinterest will prominently display the blog web address, which should help bloggers engage with others and “brand” their page. (Byincreasing our credibility and  hopefully traffic too.) It is alsoexcellent for SEO since it will give you a valuable link back fromPinterest.

Pinterest has now made it possible for those of us on the bloggerplatform to easily verify our websites using an HTML Meta Tag!  Yea! It’s a fairly simple process, and I will walk you through it (to the best of my ability) with a few screen shots…

So here’s a quick guide on how to verify your website on Pinterest.

Make sure you are in the “old look” of Pinterest when youstart this, for some reason the code generated when you are in the “newlook” is causing some people problems…

Step 1. Log in to your Pinterest account and
Click the gear menu, then Account settings:

Scroll down to Verify Website and click the button.

(Before making any changes to your HTML code, always make a copy.  There is a back uprestore button on the Template page, click it to download your backupcopy and save it somewhere safe.)

Step 5. Hit CNRL F and search for the word ”  head  “.
You should find two – the opening head tag: <head> and the closing head tag:  </head>

Your Pinterest generated code needs to go somewhere in between these 2 tags

Paste the Meta Tag info below the opening HEAD tag.  <head> (But above the closing </head> tag.)

A few commenters have mentioned the verification only worked for themwhen they put the code directly below the opening head tag, so be sureto put the Pinterest generated code to right below the opening head tag.

Step 6. Test your changes to make sure you didn’t mess up your blog.  To dothis, click preview and make sure it loads properly.  Then click savetemplate.
