  1. Ugh. This doesn't work either. Something to do with the "new" pinterest layout? I am clueless.

    1. I have been to my account and everything is exactly the same for me, not sure what you mean, any ways even if the Pinterest were to update they should leave this feature in place and it would be a simple matter of filling out your profile info and verifying your website which should take a similar path as above.

  2. Thank you sooo soooo much for this post!! you don't know how much we had to search and read to find something that actually works!!!
    Thank you man, really appreciate it!!

    1. I know the feeling, Glad it worked for you. By taking the time to comment you have made it easier for someone who may be in the same situation and need help as well, by confirming that this actually worked for you.
