    Verify Blogger Blog on Pinterest by Meta tags.

    Pinterest has recently launched this functionality. Bloggers are in troubles who are blogging with Blogger hosted blogs as me. The reason is; Pinterest allows the site's verification only by the uploading a HTML file to your site's root directory. Unfortunately, Blogger doesn't have any option to upload any file to their root directory. I look around it and found another method to verify our Blogger blogs on Pinterest. This blog has been verified on Pinterest, but Pinterest allows the ownership for a site only so we have decided to get a dofollow backlink for my new blog. Therefore, here is a step by step guide to verify a Blogger blog on Pinterest by Meta tags.

    How to Verify Blogger/BlogSpot on Pinterest by Meta Tag Verification

    1. Go to Pinterest.com, and Login into your account. (If you don't have any account, then create it first.)
    2. After Login, look on the right side, hover the mouse on your name, and click on Settings.

    3. Scroll down the page, and write your Blogger URL under "Website" section. Finally, click on "Verify Website."
      "It is possible that you don't have the option of "Verify Website" in your Pinterest profile. If it is, just type your URL, and click on Save Profile. Now, click here on Verify Website."

    4. Once you click on verify website, you will be redirected to a page that will ask you to download a HTML file that you have to upload into your Blogger's root directory. Shut up all these things, just download the HTML file to your desktop.

      Now, in the "From:" field, type your uploaded HTML file name as "/pinterest-xxxxx.html", make sure it will start with a "/" and end with ".html". In the "To:" field, type a "/" only. Here I am redirecting the Pinterest verification URL to our homepage. It will clearly find our Meta tag which we have placed before. Now, make it permanent by a tick (See 3). Finally, click on Save and Save changes.
    6. If you have properly redirected it, visit http://www.yourblogname.com/pinterest-xxxx.html URL. If you found your homepage, you have done this step.
    7. Now, go again to Verify Website. Click on "Click here" in 3rd step of instructions.
    You have verified your ownership of your Blogger on Pinterest. If you have still any doubt, or could not be able to verify your Blogger blog on Pinterest. One comment is enough for it :)
