How to Verify Your WordPress Site on Pinterest

Pinterest is one of the most popular social media platforms that allow you to share your images, videos, and other visual content. It allows you to create an account and manage your images like Instagram or Flickr.

Adding your website to Pinterest is extremely beneficial since it will bring more attention to your work and likely more traffic to the site.

In this knowledgebase tutorial, we will discuss how you can verify your website on Pinterest using the Rank Math plugin.

1 How to Add Your Site to Pinterest?

To add and verify your website on Pinterest, you need to get the HTML tag from Pinterest that is specific to your account. The following steps will help you with it.
