If you search on Google on “How to get a DoFollow link from Pinterest” you will only find outdated information.
Most of the guides will say that you need to put a link the profile and it will be a DoFollow link, or that you need to verify the website to get a DoFollow link.
Well, that’s not the case any more.
Now you have to go deeper to acquire a DoFollow backlink from Pinterest.
Why would you care?
If you’re reading this, you probably know what backlinks are and how they benefit SEO and SERP’s.
