What to do after creating Pinterest profile?
You might have seen a field for website while creating your Pinterest profile.If you have not noticed then nothing to worry you can find it again under Settings.You should enter your website name or blog name in this field.After entering the website name you will need to verify it.
The verification step is very easy.All you have to do is upload a file in root directory of your website.After uploading the file you need to verify the same on your Pinterest settings page.If the verification process is a success you can see red tick mark next to the website.
I am not getting in detail about the verification process but in case you have trouble verifying the file then feel free to share using comment form below.

Getting a link from high Google PageRank website is a dream for every webmaster.It is considered as one of the toughest job in search engine optimization.Pinterest helps you in getting link from high Google PageRank website.
It has Google PageRank of 8 (to this writing and in future it may increase).So having a link from Pinterest is going to benefit your website.
To validate whether it is a nofollow link or a dofollow link I looked at the page source code.Below is the source code of my Pinterest profile page.You can see that link to my website is not a nofollow link.
