Lots of you have been asking about website verification for Pinterest — the process that tells Pinterest that you own the website listed in your profile. Once your site is verified, your blog’s URL appears on your profile and in search results alongside the nifty little “Verified!” checkmark.
We’ve now added Pinterest to the list of webmaster tools we support. Verifying your blog with Pinterest is as easy as cutting and pasting a single line of code and hitting “save.”
(There I am, all verified. Don’t I look like a power user?)
If the idea of having to deal with code makes your nervous, don’t worry; our simple instructions tell you exactly what to put where. In less than a minute, you can have a checkmark of your very own, letting your followers know that you’re a trusted source of finding awesome stuff on the internet.

Wow thank you. I just saw the pinterest site verification and I thought it can’t be applied in wp.com. Now it’s finally here. Great work!
Thanks! This was much needed.
Have added it to our blog, thanks
Thank you for the clear and simple instructions. Easy!
Done! Very simple to follow instructions. Great quick response to Pinterest feature – thanks :)
I’ve been answering question on the support forums exactly this Pinterest business site verification issue for awhile now. It’s good to see that the support documentation has been updated. Thanks so much for doing that.

Thanks, I’ll give this a try. I’m proud of my site and my Pinterest page.
This is AWESOME and the directions were so easy!! Thank you so much!!
Wow! I’m going to have to take advantage of this with my .net
Gracias y Feliz Ano Nuevo! I especially appreciate the instructions.
Thank you for this exciting news. When I am in my WordPress Tools Available page, I do not see any “Pinterest Site Verification field” OR “Website Verification Services header”, please help point me in the right way! Thanks!
is this eventually going to be updated for self-hosted (WordPress.org) blogs as well?

nice work.. pinterest taking over..
Explain what you mean by a custom domain.
Cool. Thank you :-)
That’s brilliant! I was just trying to do this the other day with little success……. It’s worked a treat now! Many thanks ;)
Awesome and thanks for the instructions!
thanks for this option…
however i think giving option to add Our GPlus Profile link with our website is more useful. so that in search people can see author details…more power user.
I don’t understand the concept. What does verification mean and why do I want it. Perhaps another post to your blog would explain it.
Thank you! That was easy. I couldn’t figure it out before.

One tine detail- it loks like, in the instructions, that the meta tag is included in the bold/copy portion. Do not include the “” – then it works a charm.
Is it really needed!
does that include facebook and twitter users / ? / they use web/logs AKA blogs or v/logs / ? /
This is awesome! Thanks for the share!
I’m more interested in Springpad than pinterest.
Michelle, you obviously have a sense of humour that doesn’t exclude sending yourself up. You should be an Aussie, mate! :-) Does having my WordPress.com blog redirected (only) to my own domain count?
Awesome! Thanks for adding Pinterest!
Thank you, muchly!!!!!!!
I have the latest version of WordPress installed, but for some reason, there is no Website Verification Services header in my list of Available Tools. Only Press This, and Categories and Tags Converter. Please help?
I’m confused. Same as what someone else posted. When I am in WordPress Tools Available page, I do not see any “Pinterest Site Verification field” OR “Website Verification Services header” either. I only see “Press this” and “Categories and Tags Converter” under available tools. Then there are toolbar options under tools to import/export.

I saw this last night and set it up then– easy and awesome. Thank you!!
Excellent! Thank you!
Thank You! Brilliant!
Love it! Look forward to getting home to my computer then will connect the dots :]
WE CAN HAS GOOGLE+?
Thank you! I’ve been trying to figure out how to get verified for the past week & the confusion was driving me crazy!
THANK YOU! I could not figure out to do this and you made it easy enough for me, so I know anybody can do it! lol :)

My site is self-hosted with WordPress.org. I tried following the Pinterest instructions, but they aren’t as clear as yours. I’m afraid I don’t know how to do that whole download to root file thing. Do you suppose that WP.org will ever make the process as easy as the WP.com one?
Thanks michelle w. :) I’ve been wanting to do that and couldn’t figure it out!! Now, I did it :) Thank you so much!!!!
Finallyyy, thankss! :)

Great stuff Michelle! It took me under a minute to verify my site. You are just too excellent for words! Cheers mate! :-D
Pinterest? Why not Tumblr? Hmmm… Either way… It’s good news for some
This is AWESOME…………….
Awesome ! Thank you for this update !

Have you verified your WordPress account with your Pinterest account? It is not as hard as it seems. Plus you get this nifty little checkmark that not everyone has!
I want to have a “Pin It” button on my blog. I have completed the verification process for pintrest. Could you help?
@michelle w. – tried to verify again early this morning with the same result, tried again just now, still get this message: “Right now, we can only verify top-level domains. We hope to offer more options soon. Click here for more information.”
Thanks for helping us with this step and showing us how it’s done. Each new platform added out there means there’s more to be done.
HURRAY!!!! I just did it and it was sooo simple.
