Pinterest settings

Because Pinterest uses Facebook’s Open Graph metadata, the Pinterest tab of the Social settings is only there to verify your site with Pinterest, so when you share something from your website on Pinterest, it’ll show the ‘verified’ badge.

To verify your site, you have to confirm your site by clicking the link on the tab. This will take you to a web page, where you can find a meta tag. The only thing you have to do is copy that meta tag, and then paste the meta tag into the ‘Pinterest confirmation’ field. Yoast SEO will do the rest of the work.
