I want to confirm my website with Pinterest and they instruct me to do the following:
I see the section where I can add a link to my Pinterest site by adding a social media section but I'm guessing that doesn't achieve the same result? Where would I find the <head> section they refer to so I can paste the tag?
I searched the forum and saw lots of references to a toolbar on the left side but I don't have that. I'm using the Business edition of Website Builder.

Hi @jb2017, thanks for posting.
It sounds like you are using the newest version of Website Builder, GoCentral. GoCentral does not allow you to edit the HTML for the site or the <HEAD> section. It doesn't look like you'll be able to add that to your Website Builder site.
So, basically, we can't confirm our website with pinterest and lose that option? Makes no sense to me. I'm going to have to reevaluate. Pinterest is a big part of my marketing.
It's been a few years since I used a GoDaddy site builder - seriously cannot believe we can't verify with Pinterest. I will seriously need to move this elsewhere - I'll keep the under construction page for now. Unreal and sad.
Is this still not an option to claim a GoDaddy Site with Pinterest?
I know how to use the insert HTML code section on Go Central. However, how do you add it to the <head> section of the index.html file in Go Central. Or add the HTML into the rood directory ?
Is this still not supported by GoDaddy or is there a way to do it now with the HTML tool ?
Per the Pinterest how to :
Option 1: add HTML tag: Paste this tag into the <head> section of your site’s index.html file
Option 2: upload an HTML file: Download this file and upload it to your website's root directory
@jb2017 I am sorry but GoCentral does not support editing the <head> section of the website. I have passed on the request for Pinterest verification as a feature to the product team, but do not have an estimate of when it may be available at this time.
I'm sorry we don't have this feature at this time.
Heidi, GoDaddy product manager
That's really too bad that the HTML Pinterest verification feature is not available. I've gone too all the work, hrs spent, setting up a website on GoCentral and thinking that was a mistake!! Next to Google,Pinterest is the largest search engine platform and I think it's a complete oversight for Godaddy not to get on it!
Just got to this as well -- Too bad we've all realizing how useless a GoDaddy website is after spending hours/days/weeks on our sites.
From the email collection scheme, to the online store - all useless
I've told everyone I know what I learned the hard way.
i need to add the pinterest button onto my site. pinterest is one of the most popular social media sites in the world. this makes no sense that godaddy can not support these links. please contact me as soon as this changes. i would like to ad this to my site ASAP. if things do not change, i will have no choice but to change sites.
I agree, this is at the very least frustrating and at the most a complete failure by goDaddy. I am disappointed with this oversight.
I have the older version of Godaddy. Is there any way to add pinterest to the older version (I saw a response that it is not available to the newer godaddy) but I've had the older go daddy website for close to 10 years. Thanks
I'm sorry this is not available today. We understand how valuable Pinterest can be for you and many other businesses. We are looking at ways to support this need. I don't have an immediate solution for you, but I will stay in touch. - Christine, Product Manager
So there is no way to use rich pins from Pinterest either, I suppose since it requires doing the below:
1. Add Open Graph or Schema.org markups between the <head> </head> section of your HTML code for each page you want to enable product Rich Pins on. If you are using Shopify, check out the instructions below specifically for Shopify sites. Here are the required Rich Pin fields for each type of markup. Edit the highlighted fields to reflect your products.
Hi @FlorenaB - thanks for your patience. I'm sorry that we don't have a solution right now, but we have prioritized this to fix. Christine
Thanks @Pwyckoff2004 for sharing this workaround until we have a solution. Sorry for the inconvenience. Christine
I used the help feature in Pinterest and told them their instructions were wrong and to please help me get verified. They checked out my website and got back to me within 24 hours telling me I was verified.
Try getting in touch with them - GoDaddy will just say sorry, no. We don't / can't / won't do that...
You'll also be disappointed with your GoDaddy site when you try to attach a pop up email collector from another vender, or see all the weird functions (or lack there of) when setting up your store, and you'll be lamenting you ever spent time on this platform.
If you can afford the time, effort, plugins, and learning curve, I'd suggest getting a WordPress site.
**I wish someone had told me this three months ago.
I, also made the mistake of signing up and paying for this website before making sure I could verify my pinterest account. Godaddy really needs to make this flaw known before unsuspecting people pay hard earned money for a sight that is useless to on of the major shopping search platforms on the internet. Really really ticked off.
Hi Go Daddy Team
How far out is this feature in your backlog? When can we expect to see this feature added? I just upgraded my service and feel duped by Go Daddy since this feature is not available.
Hi @JenniferWickert Thanks for your patience - this feature is now available! We shipped to all English markets so far - once translations finish the feature will be available globally. It is available in Settings.
