How to Claim your Website for Pinterest | Squarespace Edition

Did you know that claiming your website on Pinterest allows for extra analytics related specifically to your website?

Obviously this is super powerful if you are wanting to analyze your top performing pins, and which content is driving the most traffic to your site so that you can create more of it. Meaning, increased traffic and click throughs 👏

If you're planning to claim your website and get seriously about marketing your website, goods or services on Pinterest you'll need to upgrade your Squarespace site to a business account because we're going to be injecting code into the header. Don't be put off, it sounds technical but it's actually super simple.
