    i have developed a php application that pins automatically from my wordpress rss feed to my boards on pinterest every X minutes.
    i can set also any pictures i want,any target url and any description manually.
    i want to know how often it is safe to pin? i have set it to 30 minutes right now with no problems.

    30 minutes is perfectly fine.
    i used to pin every 3 - 3.5 minutes but had some problems.
    now i am going to start pinning a little slower, every 5 minutes or so.

    As long as you keep it natural. I think every five minutes will do and won't raise any suspicions. Every thirty minutes is actually more than okay and it will be unlikely that you will have any problems with your interval.

    i have set the app to delay 10 seconds between each pin every time the process is executed for additional security.

    i will try it every 10 minutes to test.
    how many uniques do you get by pinning every 5 minutes? from your experience.
    sorry for my (bad) english

    it's all about residual traffic.
    pin for months and then you will start to have consistent traffic.
    think long term
