How to Verify Your Pinterest Site on WordPress

This is probably the easiest thing to, but because ofHow Pinterest word this, many people will get put off from verifying their website on WordPress

Bearing in Mind How easy it is to Pin images to Pinterest, its makes sense to drive as much traffic as you can from it to your website

So, the first thing you need to do is go to Pinterest (below)


Once there, you login to your account, then click on t he Photo icon (below)



This takes you to the settings page, which once there, click on claim website, as shown below



As you will see in the image above, it shows unclaim website, this is because, in this particular case, the website has already been claimed, but normally it will say claim website

You would then click on claim website. When you do this, a box opens up showing some META Code. Copy this code

Then come over to your WordPress website and log in to the dashboard area. Once there, click on the Appearance Tab and select, editor from the drop-down menu, as you will see below

Click on the editor tab, which will then take you to the screen you see below



Click on this and it will open up a new window, which contains a lot of seemingly random code. Don’t panic, this is the head section of your website

As you will see from the image below, you need to place the code into the section shown


Once that is done, you simply click update options and the verification process then begins

The video below shows you a live demo of this happening


It can take up to 24 hours for Pinterest to verify your website. That said, in this case, the verification process took around about an hour or so

You receive an email notification that it has been claimed. When you get that email, log in to your Pinterest account, hover over your photo, click the settings tab

once there, click on claim your website and you will then see the image below



That’s it, you will now start receiving analytics from Pinterest and traffic to your website
