How-to: Block Pinterest pinning from your site

updated March 10th: Added how-to block pinning without advanced templates. Thanks to Typepad's support folks for the tip.


While I am of the "Please pin my stuff" clan, there are others who are of the "Don't Pin me, bro!" tribe. For those folks, a short and sweet method for blocking people from pinning your pages.

Advanced Templates

Add this snippet to the HEAD section of your HTML pages 

<meta name="pinterest" content="nopin" />

Without Advanced Templates

Go to your blog's Settings Page, Basics section. Add this snippet to the Blog Description field.

<meta name="pinterest" content="nopin" />

I have it after the actual description on a test blog and it's working fine but this is a bit of a hack so please let me know if you see any weirdness.

Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I love good conversations and some great ones take place here in comments. Whether it's an opinion a deep topic or simply a tweak you made to a recipe, we all learn more when additional voices join in.

Comments are moderated for spam so your comment will not appear immediately. Beyond that, however, my policy is to allow open, honest, uncensored feedback and conversation. (You may have no idea how rare this is. I didn't either...) I trust my readers to behave reasonably, they seldom let me down.

Please join in the discussion.
