How to Claim your Website on Pinterest: A Step-by-Step Guide

Claim your website on Pinterest to gain access to website analytics and let people know where they can find more of your content. Pinterest has over 250 million users each month, pinning for all sorts of needs. Follow the step-by-step instructions below.



Why you should claim your website on Pinterest

You should claim your website because it allows you to gain access to attribution and analytics for your content which may already appear on Pinterest. You are then able to analyze your top performing pins and which content is driving the most traffic to your website.

Once you claim your website, your URL will display prominently at the top of your Pinterest profile. The URL is also clickable and users can directly access your website from your Pinterest profile. Follow me on Pinterest for more digital marketing tips.

But first make sure you switch your Pinterest account from a personal account to a business account. Once you complete that change, please follow the tutorial below.
