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. If you’re want to help build your business or blog, you’ll have more success if you claim your website on Pinterest.
Why do I want to claim my website?
Claiming your website allows you to get attribution and analytics for your content which may already appear on Pinterest. If you want to analyze your top performing pins and what content is driving the most traffic to your website, then you need to claim your website on Pinterest.
Once your website is claimed, 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.
