How do I add the Pinterest Site Verification to my site?

After you claim your site, Pins will have your account's profile picture added next to them.  Pinterest offers two methods for claiming a site: with a <meta> tag, or by uploading an HTML file.  Gutensite doesn't allow for the use of raw HTML files, so we've made it easy to use the <meta> tag.

How to obtain the <meta> tag

  1. Login to Pinterest.
  2. Click on the button with . . . in the upper right-hand corner.
  3. Select "Edit Settings" from the pull-down menu.
  4. Select "Claim" from the menu on the left.
  5. Paste the URL for your site into the provided field.  NOTE:  You will not be able to type it in.
  6. Select "Add HTML tag" from the options provided.
  7. Copy the resulting <meta> tag.

It should look something like this:

<meta name="p:domain_verify" content="44b1471596064d936a5717b2faf7d55e"/>

How to load the <meta> tag into the Control Panel

  1. Login to the Gutensite Control Panel
  2. Select Admin --> Settings --> Meta Data.
  3. Click on the Add New button.
  4. For the Preset Meta value, click on the pull-down menu, then select Pinterest Verification.
  5. In the Value field, enter the string for the "content=" portion of the tag.  In the example above, this is:  44b1471596064d936a5717b2faf7d55e
  6. The Private Description is optional.
  7. Create
