Pinterest Image Tracking

If you are setting up a Pinterest for Business account, you will need to confirm your website.


Please Note: T-REX Support does not offer support for Pinterest. These instructions are provided as a courtesy for people who choose to confirm their website with Pinterest. You must be willing and able to manage these steps on your own.



Confirm Your Website

Pinterest offers two options for confirming your website. We have instructions for the 2nd option.

Per Pinterest,

"Upload an HTML file

Step 1: Get the file

  1. Click your name at the top of Pinterest
    1. Click the gear menu, then Account settings
    2. In the Website field, click Confirm website
    3. Click Download this file. (Make sure not to rename the file. If you have multiple copies of the file, delete any extra characters your computer may have added). 


Step 2: Upload this file to your website

Upload this HTML file to your web server at the root folder (don't upload to a subfolder or we won't be able to access it). Root folder names vary by provider—common ones are public_html, www, or wwwroot.

Be sure not to rename the file when you upload it to your server, since we'll be looking for an exact name match. For example, if you download pinterest-9d541.html, we won't recognize it if you upload it with a different name, like pinterest-9d541-1.html.


Step 3: Finish setting up

Go back to Pinterest and click Finish (we’ll automatically check the file and confirm your site)"
