    FINALLY!!! Yours is the first tutorial (and I’ve tried several) that actually walked me through exactly where to paste the code. I don’t know anything about PHP and was not able to work my way down to the correct place. The A,B,C,D,E steps were perfect! Thanks so much.

  3. Thank you very much Carole. Glad you found it useful. Cheers!

    Awesome thank you so much. Your instructions were perfectly clear and the screen shots made the process a breeze. I’m glad someone knows what they are doing as there is nothing more annoying than being given instructions that don’t work. cheers karen xx

  21. Megan says:

    Wow! Thank you so much!! I was struggling for hours…I’m new to wordpress and web.

  22. Megan says:

    Actually…I thought it worked but it didn’t…any suggestions?!

    I followed all the steps above.It just won’t verify. It says “Trouble verifying your file. Try again later.”

  23. Thanks for the help!
    This Pinterest tip works for us.

  24. Hi there.

    I see a lot of people had success using this method so I thought you might be able to help me with a quick question.

    I have tried this a few times but I am getting the error message from Pinterest: Trouble verifying your domain. Please try again later.

    Someone set up the theme for me but it looks Appearance > Themes, the TEST theme he set up is ACTIVE. The parent theme is SERENE. Under Test, there is no ‘header’ on the right side, but there is in Serene. I tried copying and pasting the meta tag where you said, but its not working. Do you think I’m pasting the meta tag in the wrong section. Help! Thanks.

  25. Hi jenny, maybe because you went to themes. Under appearance, you should see “Editor”, from there you should see “Header” and so on. 🙂

  26. Susan says:

    I agree with everyone – quick and easy Pinterest verification process. Thanks for walking me through it!

  27. Leesa says:

    Thanks – this was awesome, and took me just a few minutes!!!

  28. Elaine says:

    I followed your steps exactly, also deactivated a cache plug in, but my site will still not verify successfully. Any help would be appreciated!

    Thank you.


  29. Lizz says:

    Thank You!!!!!!!!!! I couldn’t get this to work with everyone else’s directions so thank you for instructions that worked!

  30. Tiffany says:

    If you have a child theme underneath your regular theme (genesis), is it safe to insert the verification code into your Genesis theme?

  31. Karen says:

    Thank you soooooo much! This was so incredibly helpful and worked perfectly!

  32. Kim says:

    Thank you so much! I wish Pinterest would provide these easy instructions.

  33. What a great tutorial. Thanks for this! I tried so many times to verify on Pinterest before I found you, that now I have to wait to verify. Tried to many dang times. LOL

  34. Kerry says:

    Thank you, thank you , thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!!

  35. Vala says:

    This is a great tutorial, very clear. Made me very happy to find such clear instructions, but somehow it is not working for me. I do everything exactly what you said, went to editor, found header, copied the meta tag under updated, went to pinterest and it is still having problems verifying my website. Any ideas?

  36. June says:

    I’m having the same problem. I followed the instructions, step by step and it still says “Trouble verifying your domain. Please try again later.”

  37. Kate says:

    After fighting with this on and off for I don’t even know how long, this finally worked. Thank you SO SO MUCH!

  39. Traci says:

    Thank you so much for sharing this. I was simplying missing a step.

  40. Ando Mierzwa says:

    Thank you for this!

  41. Shantul says:

    Thanks for the great advice. It really did worked.

  42. Richard says:

    It didn’t work, it says the header is a .php file and not .html, does this make a huge difference?

  43. I don’t think Richard. You can put .html to a .php but not other way around. 🙂

    Request to you to give it a try once more, if it still won’t work, you may try check it from here too.


  44. Thank you for your help with verifying my website on Pinterest using Meta Tags ~ very much appreciated

  45. Thank you so much for the step-by-step! I’ve tried so many times to verify now that Pinterest is telling me I have to try again later. I’m going to bookmark this page so that I can come back later & tell you if it works for me!

  46. Cheryl says:

    Thank you so much! Fast, easy and worked like a charm! Cheers!

  47. Sofia says:

    I’ve tried doing this verification a million times with different examples that I read about. I’m on and my parent theme is Genesis and then I’ve got a child theme. The header.php was on the Genesis and I’ve added the meta tag just below the and updated file just like you said but it still does not work. Just OOps…
    Can you help me please because now I do not know what I am doing wrong.
    Thanks a lot

  48. Sorry to hear that Sofia. Not as techie as I am, I suggest you to check this as well

  54. denise says:

    Thank you very helpful.

  55. Eva says:


  56. Thanks so much! It worked. 😀

  57. web page says:

    Greate pieces. Keep writing such kind of information on your
    page. Im really impressed by it.
    Hey there, You’ve performed an incredible job. I’ll certainly
    digg it and in my view recommend to my friends. I’m confident they’ll be benefited from this web site.

  58. Terence says:

    It seems your help was useful, but not complete. Our site is a multisite, which seems to have its own issues. In multisite, it doesn’t have the webmaster tools there. But, your graphics helped since it showed which file needed the metatag added. By using Notepad++, I searched for header.php and added it manually. Thanks for pointing the way.

  59. Bethink says:

    Thank you, finally this worked!

  60. Tina says:

    Thank you! I really appreciate this helpful tutorial. I was finally able to confirm my website.

  61. Simona says:

    I pasted the meta tag just under the section of the header.php file in editor, as you told, then I tried several times to verify to no avail; then I went to my site, copied my site’s URL directly from the browser, pasted it to the Pinterest profile dashboard, saved the profile again, and the went to the dashboard and pressed ‘verify’ button again. And it worked!!! Thank you so much!

  62. What’s Going down i am new to this, I stumbled upon this I have
    discovered It absolutely useful and it has helped me out loads.
    I am hoping to contribute & help different customers like
    its aided me. Great job.
