Many of us are aware of the benefits of using a Pinterest widget or a ‘Pin It’ button on our blogs when it comes to raking in traffic but then, not everyone likes the idea of their images being pinned from their blog sites. So today, I’m going to share with you how you can prevent people from pinning images from your blog.
Fortunately, Pinterest foresaw the possibility that not everyone would want their images pinned so they provided this short line of code to prevent pinning.
<meta name=”pinterest” content=”nopin” />
Simply copy/paste the above code inside your template’s <head></head> tag, preferably either immediately after the opening <head> tag or before the closing </head> tag for easy spotting.
Once this code is implemented, a popup box will appear with the message, “This site doesn’t allow pinning to Pinterest. Please contact the owner with any questions. Thanks for visiting!” once someone tries to pin an image from your site.
- Go to the Design section of your Blogger dashboard.
- Click on Template then Edit HTML and Proceed.
- Look for the <head> tag using Ctrl+F.
- Copy the code provided above and then paste it within the tag as previously mentioned.
- Save your template and that’s it!
Try pinning any images on your site and see if it works (which I’m pretty sure it will as long as you pasted the code correctly).
