Pinterest Business Verification

If you already have or are planning to get a Pinterest Business account, you can add a Pinterest Business Verification code into your Zenfolio account. This allows Pinterest to verify ownership. This establishes the link between a website and a Pinterest account.
 

Please note that Pinterest is constantly updating the steps used in their verification process. Please check with Pinterest for the most up-to-date verification steps.


To get started, go to http://www.pinterest.com and log in to your account.
  1. Click on the thumbtack icon on the top right (or your profile picture) then click on My Profile from the menu that appears.
  2. Click on Edit Profile next to the gear icon.
  3. Add your website to the website field: Something like http://username.zenfolio.com or http://www.mywebsite.com if you're using a custom domain.
  4. Click Confirm Website.
  5. A Pop up window will appear. Copy the meta tag displayed in the pop up to your clipboard.

Pinterest Verification Settings tab


We will then place the special code provided by Pinterest into the <head> of your site so your Zenfolio site can be verified.

Once you save this setting, go to back to the browser tab or window with the Pinterest page. Click Finish.

When confirming your site, you may see 'We're still working on confirming your site. Please sit tight, sometimes it takes up to an hour.'

This means that Pinterest is still verifying your page. In this case, click Okay for now.

Come back to your Pinterest account later and you should see that your site will now show that it is verified.
