On the 25th of October 2012 Pinterest announced the launch of a new feature that allows users to verify their accounts, and the good news is that it’s really easy to do too.
How to verify your Pinterest account
- Visit “Settings”
- Click on the “Verify Website”
You will then be directed to the following page: (This is what I saw while verifying Talooma)
If 1 and 2 in the above picture are too tricky for you to do, get hold of your company computer go-to guy to assist you.
Currently Pinterest only supports top-level domains but they are working on supporting more options in the future.
When your website is verified , people will see a checkmark next to your registered domain (e.g. next to www.talooma.com) in search results.
Pinterest has always been open to asking for help from the community and even have a “Top Ideas and Featured Requests” option on their support site, where users can provide suggestions and improvements they would like to see on the site. This is a feature that neither Facebook nor Twitter can say they have – Pinterest has asked fellow pinners for any suggestions for different way to verify accounts. This definitely means that the process will become more user friendly in the future. It’s great to see a social network making use of crowd sourcing to improve their service and their offering for the long run. Nice one, Pinterest!
