When you verify your website, you automatically tell Pinterest that you own it. This establishes the link between a website and a Pinterest account. Then, your account is marked with a checkmark which displays next to your website on your profile page and below your name in search results. When you verify your website, you also get access to Pinterest analytics.
There are two ways to verify your website: by HTML file upload or with HTML meta tags. Right now, you can only verify a top-level domain, such as www.example.com, or a subdomain like www.example.example.com. A website that looks like www.example.com/example is not a top-level domain, and can’t be verified right now.
