Hello everyone,

May I ask that should I sign up for a Business account or Personal account on Pinterest since my first Personal account is banned due to the "Violation of Pinterest Policy"?

If I sign up as a Business account, there is a item called "Claim your website", what is it?

When I click the red button "Claim", it will ask me to "add HTML tag" into my website or "upload HTML file" to my website. So, what are they actually?

All the best,

Alex

Create a new account with a new email. After creating a personal account, go to the drop icon and then choose a business account and create a new business account.

The answer in the short, business account to get all the benefits from it. Also, claiming a website is a great way to change your pins from average to rich pins. It is a long story to explain everything about these terms, but from the name itself, rich pins are much better than normal ones.

When you hit the claim my website, they will give instructions, just follow these instructions they are easy. You can use a plugin to add the HTML code to the head.

Lastly, make sure to follow their business handbook; they have many articles on what you should do and what should avoid. With this, you can avoid any problem of getting marked as spam and, therefore, a ban. One of which you can't follow and unfollow people in bulk and fast (they will think that you are a bot) As a piece of advice, avoid that as the following system on Pinterest is useless and without any benefits (as Pinterest said). Only focus on pinning every day from 15-25 pins, preferably 50% fresh pins from your website and 50% repinning other relevant pins to relevant boards.

Thank you so much. It is a very detailed and clear answer. I'll try to follow your instructions to create my business account and claim my website. I hope I will not be banned again. :)
