Are you having a hard time getting approved for Rich Pins on Pinterest? Well, I can help you out for FREE! Yep, you don’t need to buy anything from me or any other sources.
The first thing you need to do is make sure you are using WordPress as your website creation tool. Then you need to add Yoast. It’s a free plugin but they do offer a Premium update for $89. You don’t need to buy it in order to go thru this process!
Now that you have Yoast as a plugin, the next thing to do is go over to the tab called SEO. Then select General via that tab. See pic below.
The next thing to do is go all the way down to the last feature – Security: no advanced settings for authors. You must click OFF. Make sure to save your changes. See pic below.
This will turn on your meta features, so you can get approved for Rich Pins on Pinterest.
So, now you need to go to the developers page of Pinterest here. This is an overview of each type of Rich Pin. In order to get approved, you must get your site validated here. Do not use your main page to get validated! Use one of your article links to get validated.
Once you are validated, then you must apply for Rich Pins. Then you should be all set after that. There is nothing else you need to do but just wait until you get an email saying that your application has been approved. Voila! You are done!
