How can I block Pinterest from pinning my images?

Block Pinterest? Inconceivable, right? Well maybe not exactly true. Pinterest can be a great source of referral traffic and interest to your site, but it could be pretty intrusive to a copyright or imagery that you may not want in the “Pinned” community.

So if you are a user that would like to block Pinterest from pinning images from your website you can add the following meta tag to your header:

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

With this code in your HTML you can block pinning from your website. If a users tries to pin your image(s), they will receive a message like so:

“This site doesn’t allow pinning to Pinterest. Please contact the owner with any questions. Thanks for visiting!”
