Confirming Your Website
So you started your business account and may wonder what the next steps will be. The next step will be to claim your website on Pinterest so they easily recognize you as a business and you can then start tracking the analytics to see how your pins are driving traffic to your website.
There are a few ways of doing this but I recently discovered that having a plugin called All Meta Tags is actually the easiest quickest way to get the job done.
Once you have installed this plugin and activated it you will need to go to the settings.
In the settings, you will scroll down to where it says domain verification.
Within the domain verification, you will see where it says Pinterest and this is where you will paste the code you receive in your Pinterest analytics page.
After you put the code into the domain verification scroll to the bottom of the page and click save changes. The next step will be to go back to Pinterest and hit the finish button.
You should then see a pop up saying it can take up to 24 hours and you will receive an email letting you know when it’s been approved.
Generally, it happens much quicker. I like to refresh the page once I hit that finish button because sometimes it has been confirmed that fast!!
And That Is How You Claim/Confirm Your Website
Occasionally you may run into some snags and that’s when you may want to reach out to someone with a little more experience like a Pinterest VA or maybe another blogger/business owner who has already been through this process.
Enabling rich pins will be your next step!! I will show you the steps to get this done in my next post. If you prefer putting the HTML code into your index instead you can find instructions for that right here.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day, Myla
