If you are setting up a profile on Pinterest for your business or blog, you need to claim your website on Pinterest. Claiming your website within Pinterest will allow you to access analytics for your website and will show your picture next to any of your pins.
There are several ways to claim your website, but I’m going to cover how to do it using Yoast SEO WordPress plugin (which you should install to improve your WordPress site’s SEO). To confirm your website within Pinterest, follow these steps:
1 – In Pinterest, go to Settings and scroll down to the “Claim” section. Enter your website and click on “Claim.”
2 – Select “html tag.”
3 – Copy the tag created by pinterest (the long number between the “ “ after content=”).
4 – Go to your website’s WordPress dashboard.
5 – If you don’t have Yoast SEO installed, install it now (go to Plugins > add new > search for Yoast SEO, install and activate it).
6 – On the dashboard, go to Y SEO > Social.
7 – Select the Pinterest tab.
8 – Paste the confirmation number from pinterest in the “Pinterest confirmation” box and save changes.
9 – Go back to Pinterest.
10 – Within Settings, scroll back to the “Claim” section.
11 – Click on Claim.
12 – Select “html tag.”
13 – Click next.
After a few seconds, you will get a confirmation that your website has been confirmed and your website will appear as “claimed” in your profile.
