How to verify your blog on PINTEREST
Today we're talking about social networks again. Pinterest offers so much to bloggers like us: if you 're not familiar with it yet, it is all about images, that you can organize into thematic boards. Just have a look around and you'll fall in love with Pinterest {warning: you might become addicted!}

Once you've created your Pinterest account, you should verify your own blog. This procedure will show Pinterest that our website is “ours”, by associating it to our profile.

To verify a blog hosted on one of the most common CMSs {Blogger, Wordpress, etc.}, you'll just have to insert a code, a meta tag, into your HTML.
Let's see, step by step, how.

  1. 1. From your Pinterest profile, go to Edit: a dialog box with our settings will pop up;

  3. copy and paste the URL of your blog into the Website field;
  4. click Verify;

  6. Pinterest will generate a meta tag, that you'll have to highlight and copy;
  7. now open a new tab on your browser, without closing the one with Pinterest, and go to your HTML editor for your blog {for Blogger: Template > Edit HTML};
  8. look for the <head> tag;
  9. right after it, paste the meta tag that you previously copied from Pinterest;
  10. save your template;

  12. go back to Pinterest and click where required to complete the verification process.

If everything went right, on your Pinterest profile page should now be displayed your blog URL, like this:

If you'll ever change the URL of your blog, because, for instance, you bought a custom domain, you'll need to run this procedure again.
Unfortunately, right now Pinterest allows to verify just one blog/website per account: let's hope that this will change in the future!
