Do you want to claim your Blogger blog/website on Pinterest? You’re in the right place. In this tutorial, I will guide step-by-step on how to claim your Blogger blog/website on Pinterest and verify your ownership.
Claiming your website on Pinterest is a method through which Pinterest verifies the ownership of a website. It authenticates that you are the real owner of the website.
There are many benefits of claiming your website on Pinterest like (1) You can use Pinterest Analytics (2) The profile picture of your Pinterest account will be shown with all your Pins that come from your website (3) A small Globe Icon having a Tick over it will appear next to your website URL on Pinterest.
How to Claim Blogger on Pinterest
Follow the steps to claim your Blogger blog/website on Pinterest.
- Click the Downward Arrow located at top-right corner.
- Under the More options section click the Settings.
- Go to Claimed accounts from the Sidebar.
- Click the Claim button corresponding to Websites.
Pinterest offers 3 methods to claim your website (1) Add HTML tag (2) Upload HTML file (3) Add TXT record. With Blogger website/blog you can claim only with the first method i.e. Add HTML tag. The other two methods are not applicable for Blogger because it doesn’t allow access to root directory and domain DNS settings. If you have a self-hosted WordPress or WIX site you can claim it with any of the three methods.
