Want to learn how to verify Pinterest in WordPress? Verifying your website for Pinterest allows you to see what people are saving from your domain. In this article, we will share how to verify Pinterest in WordPress (step by step).
When you verify your website on Pinterest, you’ll be able to see all the stats for images pinned from your site– not just the Pins that you save to your own profile. This way, you can monitor what other people are saving from your website.
To verify Pinterest on your WordPress website, you’ll need to follow these 3 steps:
- Step 1. Generate verification code from your Pinterest account
- Step 2. Install and activate Insert Headers and Footers plugin
- Step 3. Add the Pinterest verification code to your site
Ready to get started? Let’s go!
Step 1: Generate Verification Code from Your Pinterest Account
First thing you need to do is to generate the verification code. Simply login to your Pinterest account and hover on your account’s icon in the top right corner. Then click on Settings.
Now scroll down to the Website field and add your site’s URL. Hit the Confirm website button.
A dialog box will popup with some code to add to your website. Go ahead and copy this code to your clipboard (we’ll use it in step 3).
Don’t click on the Finish button yet– just leave this window open for now.
Step 2: Install and Activate Insert Headers and Footers Plugin
Next, open up a new browser tab and go to Plugins » Add New from your WordPress admin backend. In the search tab, type “Insert Headers and Footers”.
Click on the Install Now button for the Insert Headers and Footers plugin, then click on the Activate button.
Now you are ready to add your Pinterest verification code!
Step 3: Add the Pinterest Verification Code to Your Site
Go ahead to Settings » Insert Headers & Footers and paste the verification code you copied earlier into the Scripts in Header section.
Hit the Save button on the page.
Now, go back to your Pinterest screen and click on the Finish button to complete the process.
