You need to scroll down on the account settings page to find the website field. Enter your site’s URL and then click on the confirm website button.
A popup will appear on the screen with a single line of code. This code is a meta tag that you need to add on your website. Simply copy it and leave this window open. You will need to come back here to complete the verification.
Adding Pinterest Verification Code in WordPress
There are two ways you can add the meta tag to your WordPress site. You can directly paste this code in your child theme‘s header.php file just before the </head> tag.
An easier way to add the code on your website is by using the Insert Haders and Footers plugin. Simply install and activate the plugin and visit Settings » Insert Headers & Footers page. Next, paste the Pinterest verification code in the headers section and save your changes.
You now need to switch to the Pinterest verification code popup and click on the finish button. You will see a success message.
