verifying pinterest

  1. when I try to verify my blog in the pinterest site I get a error that says
    "Trouble verifying your domain. Please try again later." Don't know what else to do. Can anyone help? :)

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Is this the guide you followed?

    NOTE: You must be logged in as Admin under the exact same username account that registered the blog.

  3. I had not seen that guide in my search but thank you soooo much for all your help. I was able to verify it!! YAY!

  4. I am having the same problem with Pinterest and followed the guide. I've had other issues with my WordPress site being verified on other sites, like Technorati. I have a unique URL (, which I purchased through WP and not sure if that's the issue or not. I noticed that after I pointed my blog to the unique URL, I now have 2 identical blogs, one populated with content under the new URL and one empty with the old URL. Wonder if that is creating verification issues. Anyone?

  6. @parttimeparisienne you have two blogs. and . Could you please explain in more detail what error message you get when you encounter your issue?

    the blog in question is (FYI, I bought the URL from WP for this blog, which is what I used when I attempted to verify). When I try to verify ownership of the blog on Pinterest, I get an this error message: "Trouble verifying your domain. Please try again later." I have followed the steps for Pinterest as specified by WP (, but it doesn't work. I've tried several times in different ways over a few days. I also had issues verifying my site on Technorati, so don't think it's a Pinterest issue. I don't seem to have these issues with another blog I have hosted on,, so wonder if there is an issue with the way is set up?

  8. I see. What happens when you try to verify using your domain instead?

  9. @kardotim
    Same problem. Plus, I don't want that domain in a public-facing environment. I'm trying to get traction.

  10. Just to be sure, did you get stuck at step 4 of this guide?

    When following step 3, make sure you enter your site without http://

    I was just able to verify your site on Pinterest and get a Meta Tag. Please give it another try. Looking forward to your reply.

  11. @kardotim
    No I didn't get stuck; I went through the entire process. I tried it again without the http:// (I've done that before, too) and got the same error message: "Trouble verifying your domain. Please try again later." Then, I just clicked the verify button again and it said: "Whoops! Domain Already Verified." Frustrating. Meanwhile, Pinterest is asking for my to add the http:// in order to create the active link on my profile. Bewildered.

  12. I see you've correctly entered the verification code at

    We ran a few tests and we were able to verify the domain. Make sure you enter the domain in this format:

    If you get any issues, refresh the page and check to see if it's verified.

  17. Hi there,

    I am having the same trouble as others in this feed. I can't seem to verify my blog on Pinterest. I have followed the instructions listed here to no avail. Help please!

  18. I should have mentioned, my blog is

  19. @shalinisookar You have a manual redirect on your domain pointing to your site. You need a Domain Mapping upgrade to fully cover the address so it does a proper redirection. To map a domain you already own to your blog, you will need to purchase the Domain Mapping upgrade. You can find this upgrade by going to Store -> Domains on your blog's dashboard and follow the steps there.

    Please find additional instructions for mapping your domain here:

    After this you can try verifying at Pinterest again. If you don't want to purchase the domain mapping upgrade, then you can verify at Pinterest using your address ( instead.

  20. Thanks for the help! I managed to verify, whoo-hoo!!!

  21. Awesome!
