Pinterest Tip #1 – Claim Your Website

The Pinterest verification tool allows you to claim your website, along with your Instagram account, Etsy shop and more.

Pinterest Marketing

Use Pinterest’s verification tool to claim and confirm your website address.

The Pinterest verification tool allows Pinterest to see that you in fact own the website you are linking to the account. What you’re going to do is claim your website on Pinterest by adding some header tag code or uploading a file to your hosting server. In addition, claiming your website on Pinterest provides invaluable in-depth detail on how your pins from your website are performing along with the traffic you’re receiving.

Here are some of the channels you can claim on Pinterest to add more insight into your Pinterest conversion data and analytics:

  • Etsy
  • Instagram
  • YouTube
  • Other subdomains, shop domains, etc.
  • Shop

By claiming these other channels, you’ll receive insight into what people are most interested in and what traffic your channels get from Pinterest. Get credit for all your content on Pinterest. When you claim your content, your name and profile picture will show up next to any Pins that come from your site or external accounts. All this with just a little clicking around with the Pinterest verification tool! If you run into any trouble, Pinterest support is just a few clicks away.

Doing this one step is just the first of many! But it’s often forgotten or misunderstood by people who may be a little less techy and are still on personal accounts. Make sure you claim your website on Pinterest, as that’s one of the first steps to establishing a healthy Pinterest business account.
