Now, we all know Social media sites are very useful for Blog SEO as they help us to increase Social signals and many Social sites help us to get backlinks from the profile bio section. Another thing which many of miss out on Social media sites is to get your account verified. A verified account are more likely to get more followers than a profile which is unverified. In this guide I will share how you can verify your Pinterest profile and add your Website link in profile section.
How to Verify your Blog on Pinterest & Add Website link?
Follow the below mentioned steps and you will have a verified Pinterest profile in few minutes.
- Login to your Pinterest account
- Go to Settings page.
- Under Website section, Enter your Website address and click on Verify. (See screenshot)
Click on Verify Website will take you the Pinterest Website verification page, where you will get instructions for verifying your Website on Pinterest. The process is simple:
- Download the HTML Verification file
- Upload it on Root of your domain (Use cPanel File manager or FileZilla or any other FTP client)
- Click on verify button and Pinterest will verify and authenticate your Website
Once you have done the Website authentication process, your Pinterest profile will start showing your Website link in profile section and it will also show a verification sign. The link is going to have a nofollow tag so hardly any SEO benefits here, but it’s still going to help you to get some traffic from your Pinterest profile. Here is screenshot of my Pinterest profile after verification and when the link is added:
The entire process will take hardly 5 minutes but it will be very beneficial for you to make your profile outstanding. More over, by creating your profile or your Website profile on Pinterest, you are increasing your Social media presence.
