1. Verify website –  First you need to verify your domain name for your Pinterest Board. So for example we visit and then click on the Pencil icon and the next pop up screen will allow to add your website address. Then you can verify with an HTML file or a META tag added to your site. If you do not see the pencil icon, you can also reach it via Account Settings drop down on the right.
