How to Verify Your Blogger Blog on Pinterest

Have you noticed you can now verify your website on Pinterest?

How to Verify Your Blogger Blog on Pinterest
(If you don't already, you can follow me on Pinterest here.)

Verifying your website on Pinterest is a good for bloggers.  Once verified, Pinterest will prominently display the blog web address, which should help bloggers engage with others and "brand" their page. (By increasing our credibility and hopefully traffic too.)  It is also excellent for SEO since it will give you a valuable link back from Pinterest.

The verifiacation feature has actually been available for about a month now, but Bloggers on the Blogger platform haven't been able verify their website because we can't upload files to our server.  (Or at least we couldn't do it without some serious tech savviness...)



Pinterest has now made it possible for those of us on the blogger platform to easily verify our websites using an HTML Meta Tag!  Yea!

It's a fairly simple process, and I will walk you through it (to the best of my ability) with a few screen shots...

Get the tutorial after the jump...


*** Update!  Make sure you are in the "old look" of Pinterest when you start this, for some reason the code generated when you are in the "new look" is causing some people problems...***
Log in to your Pinterest account and go to settings:


Scroll down to Verify Website and click the button.


On the next page you will have the option to download an HTML file or to Verify with an HTML Meta Tag.

Click the option to verify with a Meta Tag.  You will see the following:


Select and copy your meta tag.  (It is the code in the gray box.)

Log in to blogger and go to "Template" and select Edit HTML.


You will see a warning message, click proceed.


Click the button to expand widget templates.


(Before making any changes to your HTML code, always make a copy.  There is a back up restore button on the Template page, click it to download your backup copy and save it somewhere safe.)

Hit CNRL F and search for the word "  head  ".

You should find two - the opening head tag: <head> and the closing head tag:  </head>

Your Pinterest generated code needs to go somewhere in between these 2 tags


Paste the Meta Tag info below the opening HEAD tag.  <head> (But above the closing </head> tag.)

A few commenters have mentioned the verification only worked for them when they put the code directly below the opening head tag, so be sure to put the Pinterest generated code to right below the opening head tag.  (I think it must depend on what other coding "stuff" you have in this area...)


Test your changes to make sure you didn't mess up your blog.  To do this, click preview and make sure it loads properly.  Then click save template.


Head back over to Pinterest and click the click here button for Pinterest to verify your site.


That is it, if it worked, you are verified!  Head back to your main page to check it out!


Since we are on the subject of blog maintenance...  Please take a moment and verify that you are not a no-reply blogger.  (Can you believe almost half of the commenters below are no-reply?) 
Click this link for the tutorial: Check your settings!

Good luck and please remember I am not a professional, so proceed with caution!


If this post helped you, would you give me a +1, pin or a stumble?  The quick links are at the bottom of the post...

I would love to have you as a follower!  (I made it easy for you...)  Just click on one of the icons below to follow along using the Google Friend Connect widget, through a reader, or via email.

  9. Thanks, but it didn't work by me. Might be that I have a much too safe computer who doesn't let me add some gadgets. When I find out why, I'll tell you, promise ;)

  10. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I have been trying to do this for weeks and just gave up. I was praying I wouldn't mess up seeing how I just got a new blog make-over and I had a designer do it!

    I am having a blog social hop on Saturday and I would love for you to hop over and link up! Stop over and grab a button.

    Have a crazy beautiful day!

  12. YAY! What a great tutorial! Now I need some instructions for WordPress! :)

  13. Thank you! Worked like a charm. Although I didn't think the ctrl f was working (thought it would appear on the top of my screen) until I figured out it appeared at the bottom of my screen. tricky tricky.

    1. Laura... Your email is set to no-reply...

      I'm using Google chrome, what browser are you using. Just curious if different browsers put the search function in different places...

  14. Thanks! I had figured this out on my own and tried it and I got this error message and it won't let me save the changes: More than one widget was found with id: HTML9. Widget IDs should be unique.

    So then I followed your instructions step by step and got the same message.

    Any tips? Thanks! susie cafescrapper at gmail.com

    1. Susie, I don't know what the problem could be. I seems like you might have some sort of duplicate code in your template. Use the cntrl f function and search the template for portions of your meta tag info. See if there is something similar already there. You can try to submit a pinterest trouble ticket, but they may not help... If you ever figure it out, will you come back and share your results?

  18. Worked perfectly, although I did find it easier to search the HTML coding plus head than just head. Thanks so much!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. YAY!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!! Shared on FB, so glad to finally have someone explain this...codes are NOT my thing ;)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I was excited to try this, but got stuck on your instruction "Hit CNRL F and search for head" I don't get anything to search in. :>( Thanks for sharing this with us though. It sounds like it would be very valuable. Linda @www.paperseedlings.com

    1. If you are on a regular pc or laptop using Google chrome or a recent version of windows, if you press the ctrl button at the same time as the f key, a search box should pop up somewhere on your screen. Search for /head and the computer should highlight everywhere the phrase /head appears.

      If anyone else knows how to explain this, please chime in...

  41. I found that if you do not own your own domain name however, you cannot at this time verify. Which I personally find to be a bunch of malarkey.

  49. Thank you for this! I tried to verify a few weeks ago, and couldn't because I'm on blogger, so Thank you! Also, I don't know what happened with the no-reply blogger thing, but I wasn't a no reply blogger, and recently a friend told me that I was. Blogger changed it on me. It is fixed now, but I think people don't realize that they are no reply bloggers, because they once weren't. :) Pinning this post, have a great day!

  54. I have to figure out how to do this with Wordpress! I've seen them asking but don't know where to add. Thanks for keeping us in your prayers about Bo, some day's we think this is the "day", and then he perks up the next. For the last two days he's been taking short walks, like 4 houses up and back. It's like being on a roller coaster. Thanks for always sharing your creative inspiration with Sunday's Best!

  64. Wonderfully explicit directions, and so easy to follow. Thanks for the tutorial, I've been looking at that Pinterest verification button and trying to figure out what they were talking about since it first showed up.

    Unfortunately I can't verify my blog, even though I own the domain, it keeps telling me that it's a 404 error and the server can't find my blog, but I will keep trying, after they let me back in again, lol.

    btw, I believe I AM a nofollow blogger because I have Google+ linked to my profile. I've yet to find a way to keep G+ and get rid of the nofollow. But then, until 5 minutes ago, I didn't think I could verify a Blogger blog on Pinterest either!

    1. Hi, once you have gone into the html and checked the expanded widgets button, if you are on a laptop or regular pc, you should be able to press the control key and the f key at the same time and a search box will pop up. type in the word head and the computer should find 2 of them. Place your pinterest generated code between the 2. I put mine right above the closing head tag: /head. but someone else said it worked for them when they put it right after the opening head tag head.

      Good Luck,
      Jamie

  88. Worked, Thanks. It kind of had me confused for a minute but I figured it out.

    ReplyDelete
  89. This did not work for me... I get the 404 as well. I did what another commenter did and tried after the close-head but that did not work either.

    I am wondering if it is because of what all is in my header?


    I'm going to try a couple more sensible placements and see if I can get it to work....


    Okay!!! I tried the 'common sense' idea and it worked!!...


    I just wanted to share all of this since it can be different for different people. Luckily for me, I found another meta tag, and it was miiiiiiiiiiiiles above the close/head I just added this meta tag underneath the other meta tag. I'm verified! Thank you!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you look under settings on your Pinterest account and click on “log in w/ Facebook” under social networks, it will give you the option to disconnect your Facebook account. After you disconnect the wrong account you can re-ad the correct one. (I just realized my personal facebook account was still connected, so I am so glad you asked this question. I updated my facebook/ Pinterest account too.)

      Good luck,

    1. It's just a matter of personal preference. If you'd like to drive a bit more traffic to your blog, it can't hurt to have the link on Pinterest.

    1. I am glad it worked for you! It is so weird how it works in different positions for different people in the head tag. If anybody knows why this is, feel free to chime in on the comments!

  119. BTW, do you remove the Meta tag after you are verified?

  120. Thank you for this post! However, it took a while to find out how to verify on Wordpress. Go to "Tools" then "Available Tools". Pinterest verification is the last thing on the page!

    1. It is hard to know where you are in the process without seeing your screen, but it sounds like you are in the HTML editing mode. Be very careful with what you are doing here. I am no pro and can't help you if something happens.

      Try to find the "head" tag and paste in your pinterest generated code. Click preview, your blog will load in the preview mode so you can verify it loads properly. If it doesn't, exit out with out making changes, if it does load properly, save your changes and then go back to pinterest and try to verify your site.

      Good luck~!

    2. Btw/ your email is set to no-reply. Is your profile still linked to blogger or have you linked it to google+?
