Have you wondered if you could verify your website or blog on Pinterest?
In short, the answer is yes!
This is a very easy process that shouldn't take most people more than a few minutes to accomplish.
Following these few steps will make the process quite easy!
Step 1 - Log in
Log in to your Pinterest Account, and click on your image in the top right corner.
Step 2 - Go to settings
Step 3: Input Website/Blog
Scroll down to where the entry for your website or blog is located. Either enter your website or blog address (don't need to worry about http://)
Step 4: Click to Verify
Click on the "Verify Website" link.
Step 5: Download Verification Page
You will be asked to download a verification webpage that you must upload to your website.
Step 6: Upload Page and Verify
After you have downloaded this website, you need to upload it to the "root" of your website (not in a subfolder, right in the root for your website). When you are done, return to Pinterest and click the link "Click here to complete the process."
If you have done this correctly, you should now be verified. Otherwise, double check that the address you entered for your website/blog is correct, and that you uploaded the web page to the root of your website.
For WordPress Users:
Assuming that you are using a hosting service for your website/blog, and are using CPanel - do the following to upload your verification page.
Step 1: Logon
Login to your hosting service and open CPanel and click "File Manager"
Step 2: Click on "Web Root"
Step 3. Upload the webpage
- Upload the web page that you downloaded from Pinterest by selecting "Upload" from the menubar at the top. Select “Choose File”.
- Browse to where the Pinterest HTML file saved on your computer.
- Click “Open” and the file will upload to your server.
Step 5: Return to Pinterest
Return to Pinterest and click where it says, “Click here to complete the process.”
At this point your website/blog have been verified!
