Those of you who use Blogger can now verify your blogs through Pinterest.
By verifying your Blog through Pinterest this will help on a couple different levels.
First of all most of us want to make our blog a brand.
Since Pinterest is such a big social media outlet for us bloggers, this will help us
bloggers brand your blog easier.
Secondly, it will help drive traffic to our blogs.
Which is obviously what us as bloggers want.
Isn't that one of the main reasons we blog, so that others will see our content.
Also that little thing called SEO...yeah it will help tremendously with that.
To verify your Blogger blog on Pinterest is pretty easy.
Go to your settings found here
After clicking on settings scroll down until you see "Website"
Enter your blog address and hit "Verify Website"
The next step will ask if you would like to download an
HTML file or Verify with an HTML Meta Tag.
Choose Verify with an HTML Meta Tag.
Copy the whole HTML Meta Tag that is in the gray box.
Next, log into Blogger, go to Template and select Edit HTML
When you go in to open the HTML code make sure you SAVE your current template.
The last thing you want is for your beautiful blog to disappear.
So simply copy, paste and save your HTML into a Word document.
After you click "Edit HTML"
Check the box "Expand Widget Template"
In order to find where to enter the Meta Tag,
hit "Control F" and type in "</head>
Once you find this, enter in your HTML Meta Tag above <head>
After you enter the code here,
preview your template to make sure that everything is where it is supposed to be.
Now that you have completed installing it into your blog template,
jump back over to your Pinterest settings and select "Click here" to complete the process.
