How to verify website in Pinterest for Business

Web hosts with access to a Cpanel you can manage yourself

such as – Bluehost – Hostgator — goDaddy

Since this feature was just rolled out only top-level domains  (.com) are allowed to be verified. So if you have a ebay, amazon or etsy site you will not be able to verify your site at this time. You can also only verify one website per Pinterest profile.

When you’ve just opened your new Pinterest for Business account click the

Verify website tab

or Sign in to your Pinterest acccount

Go to settings and scroll down to your website

Click the “Verify” button

Once you click the button you will have a screen that appears allowing you to download the HTML code that needs to be uploaded to the root folder of your website via your hosting file manager or FTP. Do not close this page you will need it to verify your website once you uploaded the HTML to your websites server.

I logged in to my Hostgator cpanel

Scrolled down and clicked File Manager

Select the Web Root option (public_html/www) and make sure that you have checked the box to show hidden files. This will allow all files to show –

Once your file manager is open, select the folder with your domain name and click to open it.

once the selected file is open select upload, find the html file from pinterest and upload it

After you upload the Pinterest file you should see it appear in the file.

Now you will need to go back to the Pinterest website (the tab you left open earlier)

Click Verify- It will let you know if the code was found on your site.

Now check your Pinterest Profile!  There will be a red ticked icon showing.
