How to Verify your Pinterest Account WITHOUT a WordPress Plugin
For this post I have created a step by step guide to help you very your Pinterest account WITHOUT a WordPress Plugin! I am currently on a Premium WordPress plan… aka NO plugins. It just so happens that every post I initially read regarding Pinterest account verification recommended the Yoast SEO plugin. I have nothing against the suggested plugin… I actually use it to manage the blog posts for my day job and love it. But for my personal blog I am working to a tight budget so it’s no upgrades / plugin zone for now.
Maybe I just ain’t too tech savvy, but working Yoast free to successfully verify my Pinterest account was a total nightmare.So if you are like me and on the financial up and up slower than a tortoise with a concrete shell … then you might just need this article…
Before we get into the good stuff…I am writing this post on the premise that you have already created a business Pinterest account. If this is not the case you will first need to convert your account. If you don’t have your Pinterest verification code ready please follow these instructions and come back after for the second half of the process!
Check out the screens and instructions below to verify your Pinterest account without upgrading to a business plan or investing in plugins!
Verify your Pinterest Account WITHOUT a WordPress Plugin

Step 5. Once the page has loaded, scroll down to find a series of spaces to insert relevant links. Insert your verification code into the Pinterest box!
Click “save changes” and head back over to the Pinterest screen in which you retrieved your verification code and click “Submit.”
