Pinterest Site verification

  1. I want to upload Pinterest verification of my site, how do I do this? Where do I upload the file? I see nothing that allows the file upload.

  2. Hello there,
    You can use any widget that has pure HTML but you cannot use any widgets that contain restricted codes like iframes or JavaScript widgets. In the case of Pinterest, you cannot use the Pin-it Javascript code on a WordPress.com blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

    But you can put the code for the Pinterest follow button in a text widget.
    1. Go to this site, choose which one of the red Follow Me images you want, and copy the code for it. http://pinterest.com/about/goodies/

    2. Then, go to your widgets > Appearance > Widgets and select a text widget.http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/text-widget/

    3. Paste the Pinterest follow button code into the text widget, "save" the widget, "close" the widget and place it where you want it to display in your sidebar.

    4. Please see here for enabling sharing buttons including Pinterest on your blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/sharing/

  3. Thanks, I already have Pinterest on my site, it's the new verification that as of yet WordPress has not allowed. in my industry and the amount of traffic it generates, this verification should work fluidly with wordpress. Thanks for your help, I am sure it can help others also.

  4. This is a multiuser blogging platform. As our blogs are not free standing we cannot access metadata and add anything to it or edit it. For that kind of access you will need to hire a web hosted and set up your own independent WordPress.org install.
