How to Verify Your Website on Pinterest [New Feature]

How to Verify Your Website on Pinterest [New Feature] | Quick Social Media | Scoop.it

Pinterest is another one of those social networks that some marketers have figured out how to infiltrate to reap business benefits -- even without the existence of dedicated brand pages on Pinterest (much like Google+ when it first launched).

 

But it seems like the folks over at the Pin headquarters -- even if they've done so unintentionally -- are giving those businesses a little nudge with their latest feature rollout. Pinterest has started to roll out website verification for profile pages. This feature is intended to let other pinners learn more about the people they're following on Pinterest. In a nutshell, the feature will let you highlight your full website URL on your Pinterest profile going forward. Users will also see a checkmark next to your domain in search results and on your profile.

Facebook vs. Google & The New SEO
Facebook becoming the #1 web destination is as much a VOTE for something (content and content curation) as against something (Google).


There will be a day when Google is as powerful in social networking as Facebook. People laugh at G+. I don't. I LOVE under valued tools because then I get to BUY LOW and SELL HIGH. 

Wrote this piece as Facebook's traffic line crossed Google's. You can see that infogrpahic here:

Facebook vs. Google Infographic
http://allfacebook.com/google-vs-facebook_b19556  

If it feels like that event is bigger than it seems I agree. Facebook becoming the web's top destination is a statement about how TRUE Daniel Pink's book A Whole New Mind is and will be. Couldn't resist sharing thoughts on such a momentous event.
