How to Verify Your WordPress Site on Pinterest and Google

Those of us with a mild to severe Pinterest addiction, and a blog have the additional problem of needing to verify their blogs.  If you’re like me you looked into it, saw how difficult it appeared to be and decided it wasn’t worth it.  Well the problem was I couldn’t find any really helpful websites when it came to this problem.  While looking at an answer to another question though, I ran across the solution to my Pinterest problem, and it turns out that it’s really not difficult at all.

Step 1:

Log into your Pinterest account and click on “Settings” which is found under your name on the top right hand portion of the site.

Step 2:

Go down to “website” and enter your wordpress URL if you haven’t already, and click “Verify”

Step 3:

At the bottom you should see and click verify with meta tag.

Step 4:

Highlight and copy the tag that is provided.

Step 5:

Log into your wordpress account in another internet tab and go into your dashboard

Step 6:

Under Tools on the left taskbar, click available tools

Step 7:

Scroll down and input the tag that you received from Pinterest and click save at the bottom of the page.

Step 8:

Go back to the Pinterest page where you received the tag from and click below to finish.  I had a problem with this, where it continued to say Verifying… forever.  I refreshed the page which seemed to solve this problem.

Step 9:

Go to your Pinterest login page and you should now see your website at the top of your profile with a red circle with a check next to it.  This means that your blog is verified by Pinterest!

FYI

Verifying your page through google is very similar except you should go to www.google.com/webmasters/tools/ and follow the instructions there.

I hope that this helps others like it helped me!  If you need any other help please contact me here or at brushesandthread@gmail.com.
