Prevent Your Blog From Being Pinned on Pinterest

Pinterest is a great social bookmarking tool that makes it easy for anyone to highlight your blog posts or photos. Typepad has made it easy for you to add a Pin It button to your posts. However, you may have a blog you want to prevent others from sharing to Pinterest. It's also easy to block others from pinning your content by adding a bit of code to your blog.

For most blogs, you can go to Design > Content, select the Embed Your Own HTML module, and click the Add This Module button. In the pop-up box, enter the below code:

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

Click OK and click Save Changes to update your blog.

If you are using Advanced Templates for you blog's design, you can enter the same code within the head section of all your templates.

For blogs using a Mixed Media Layout, the nopin code can be added to a Notes TypeList. Then, the TypeList can be added to your blog's sidebar at Design > Content.
