Want to confirm and verify your wordpress website blog on Pinterest?
Using Pinterest Analytics for the posts on your WordPress site is a great way to collect data about how people respond to your posts. Add the Pin It button to your posts and let people’s interests take them to your website and its posts. The number of pins, repins, and clicks will be recorded by the Pinterest Analytics and this will help you come up with a more refined strategy for your posts. You will learn what people are the most interested in, what people love the most, what people save the most, what devices people use to pin the posts on your website, and how the Pin It button can lead to referral traffic for your website.
For you to make use of the Pinterest Analytics, you need to verify your website on Pinterest. For this, you need to follow the following steps:
Generate a Pinterest verification code for your WordPress site – create a new Pinterest account or login to your existing account. Click on your username to bring up the pins page of your account. Now, click on the button next to the Edit Profile button to bring up a list of options. Click on account settings. You will be led to a page where you will see many fields related to your profile.
Enter the URL of your website in the Website field and click on the Confirm website button. This will bring up a pop up with a single line of code which is just a meta tag. Copy the code and leave the window open.
Add the verification code to your WordPress site – the code that you generated in step 1 now needs to be added to your WordPress site. There are two ways which you can use to add this code to your WordPress theme. The first is to add it to the head tag of headers.php file. If you are not comfortable editing the theme files for your website, you can use the Insert Headers and Footers plugin and add the code to the header section.
Finish the website verification process on pinterest– after you have added the code to your WordPress site, only one step remains to completion. You need to go back to the window you left open in step 1 and click on the Finish button of the pop up. If you have followed all the instructions correctly, you will see a success message after your click Finish and will now see verified Pinterest Analytics for your website. You have successfully verified and confirmed your wordpress website on pinterest
To make the most out of the available options, you should also add the Pin It button to your posts to get increased exposure to Pinterest users and attract more traffic. Pinterest boasts of over 100 million active users and it would be a shame to not utilize the sheer power the figure holds.
