Opting out of Rich Pins

If you don't want your pages to render as Rich Pins, you can insert the following <meta> tag into the HTML head section of your pages. It's important to point out that this tag only applies to Rich Pins and is not the same as the "nopin" tag, which prevents people from adding things to Pinterest from your site.

<meta name="pinterest-rich-pin" content="false" />
