Weldbond should work fairly well, and better than most other "white" glues because of its exact composition.  For metal bonding, a good cleaning (alcohol or other solvent) and sanding is recommended first though.  One clayer feels that this glue is even stronger when baked so she bakes after applying the glue.

Two-part epoxy glues are good too.

I'm not sure that any glue is quite as good as a creating mechanical hold with the clay though (with or without a glue added underneath), and that's the traditional way to be sure the pinback will stay on. 
It's simple to do... just open the pinback, place the bar where you want it on the back of the pin... then lay a rectangle or other shape of thin clay (larger than the pinback's bar)  on the back of the pin over the bar (add bit of liquid clay, superglue, Weldbond, etc. too if you want) ...press your clay shape well onto the raw clay around the bar ... bake as usual. 
There's info,examples & lessons on doing this on this page too, if you want to look:

(click on Pins, then look under Pinbacks)

Diane- i actually got the idea for weldbond from you site. I'm gonna try it baked and not backed. i planned on creating a mechanical hold also. I want to sell them so I plan to play around a bit and get them as secure as possible. would wedbold also work for magnets? by the way i love you site. I'm just getting into clay and i find so much helpful info and inspiration on your site. thanks!!
