Rich Pins for My Homepage

On your homepage Yoast will output the following OpenGraph tags: meta property="og:type" content="website". In order to make Pinterest validate rich pins for the homepage you will need to develop the ability to output “article” only on the homepage and place it, most likely, in your theme’s functions.php file.

You would need to use the Change Yoast SEO OpenGraph Type code here: Develop Filters to Set Custom OpenGraph Tags. Please know that you may need to develop the ability.

Prior to any changes on your site we recommend making a backup of your site or performing the work first on a staging site. If you need to create a staging site or need to backup your site, we suggest speaking to your host provider for more information. Please also know, that any changes made to your theme may be overridden in the next theme update.

It is highly suggest to use a Child Theme. If you are not sure how to use a Child Theme, please speak with your theme developer.
