Pinterest is a popular social media platforms to share your photos, videos, and other visual content. Verifying or claiming your website on Pinterest will help you to learn more about your visitors using Pinterest Analytics tool.
Claiming your site on Pinterest will get you access to site analytics and let people know where they can find more of your content. Your profile picture will show up next to any Pins that come from your site, and a small globe icon will appear next to your website URL on your profile.
How to claim your site?
