    Are you guys making money with Pinterest ?
    I just lost my main accounts that i built over the weeks. Didn't even had the chance to make one buck ! I was building the accounts (growing them).
    All the cash that i put into this project, the time spent.
    IT IS WORTHLESS as the accounts got deleted or suspended.
    Using private proxies, not linking to anything just repining stuff and liking stuff.

    Hell if i got the stick in the A$$, everyone will get it sooner or later. I don't understand how in the world they caught those accounts ?
    The way they were created ?
    So what's the point of getting/creating accounts if they last for a couple of days even if they look SOOOOOOO legit.
    You won't be able to make your money back i'm telling ya.
    All the softwares hanging around are working great by the way. Unless they leave foot prints, that i don't know of....

    It's all about the accounts, can't keep them, WORTHLESS as you need to build followers.
    If you you think you'll wind up in the main board with a new account, GOOD LUCK, anyways, it won't last long (rotation of picture) so it's little traffic until it gets deleted or suspended.



    I know they are reading the board so i'll stay polite.
    All i will say is that:
    You won, you won...

    I'm getting the hell out of this project :frusty: Not worth the money, the time and the hopes !
    Sorry for all of you. 2 months and half of my rotten life went down the toilet.

    Maybe i'm wrong but this is my case and i've been online for sooooooooooooooooo long


    How you're doin' ?

    Pint reps, have a nice day ...

    Hey man, I know you are upset. I would be pissed off to, any wasted work sucks!

    You say, "The accounts looked legit". Well to be honest the best way to go, IS BEING LEGIT. I myself have one account, I am active on it reply to comments. I myself already had it in my mind that Pinterest was going to regulate on spammers. I started a real account that is very legit, I have also made money with just this one account. Its not going to be a over night cash machine dude. It takes time to build up, but in the long run. Ooooooohhh the long run is sweet, better then any bot or spammed account would do.

    ANYWAYS, to wrap things up. Just be legit stick with one account. Look at this as a positive and a learning curve. After all IM is trial and error.

    Funny you replied with one account as this is what i was thinking also.
    Long run and why not, fun ? A hobby which could pay

    But to be honest, a couple of tears fell of my eyes. Man it was too much

    Can you tell me how much you made so far or how much you make per day (if it's not asking too much ?)
    Is little money as you're starting ?
    My goal was to make 100$/day, steady
    Forget about it hehehehehe (at least i still have a sense of humour) but man did i burst into tears. I completly lost it. I think i spent 100 hours (edited 225 hours)or so on this project and around 500$

    @elviswong Likes, Repins has less affects on PRPs (Pinterest SERP). Its starts with Pinning. You should be taking advantage of pinning with Pinmarklet. I think you would have definitely done it. But there are still multiple factors that decides like Timing, Comments, follower, etc.

    I am not clear what all things you have tried. But still I believe pinterest working awesome for me.

    I don't feel bad at all when things like this happen. People should use the sites like they are SUPPOSED to be used and not some get rich quick scheme.

    If and when pinterest has a proper ad platform I'd consider paying attention to it but I find it a pointless wank and even if there were piles of cash to be had screwing around with it I'd be hating my life.

    Do you even know what website you're on right now?


    I'll give it to you that a get rich quick scheme leads you nowhere...But putting in hundreds of hours of work is not getting rich quick.

    Going around a terms of service is what you do if you want to succeed. I've said this before and I'll say it again, there is no such thing as white hat marketing. Maybe white hat seo, but not marketing. By nature, marketing is about seduction, and all's fair (as long as you can deliver).

    How much followers do you need to actually start seeing some money? It was very hard to me, but I managed to get 1400 followers, but it still seems like very low number. I don't know if it is still worth the effort. You know, if there will be money when I reach 10-15 thousands, I'm gonna to try it, but you need 100 000 folowers then I will probably try something different.

    It's all about understanding your target market. Offer them something they want and the money is the bank. I'm doing pretty good with it.

    It's gettin' harder and harder now for bots users to make money on pinterest , as they putted limitations to pins,re-pins,comments and follows.
    The best strategy right now is to go white hat, until some coders releases a bot that can bypass limits.
    And study your market, the quickest way is to ask your mom/grandy/girlfriend about what she likes on pinterest . :p

    i am making money with pinterest but it's not a lot. CPA is where my cash comes from. i do have a working method though and i am happy about that, now i just need to scale this method up. i will give one small tip though, do not direct link to your cpa offer, use a landing page to filter out the bad traffic :)
