Can my domain be banned from pinterest for mass repinning with "throwaway accounts"?

    If I have a pin on my "main" account linked from the source (my site) and mass re-pin with dummy accounts, will they ban my link as spam?

    Or is that only if you are changing other peoples pictures and links and sending them to unrelated sites?

    I have found that a lot of the shortener URLs end up getting banned quickly (altho I was re-pinning popular pins and changing the link)

    So I switched methods of trying to get my 'real' pins repinned with actual links to my site.

    Do you guys think its better to use a shortener on my legit pins?

    edit:What makes pinterest ban a URL? Is it some automated formula or is it based on users reporting it as spam?

    never use a URL shortener with pinterest, you will get banned very quickly.

    Contacting customer service and asking for a manual review is the only option. It's the same process for reinstatement if an account is suspended.

    when one of my accounts was banned, they responded to my email and said they aren't going to re-open my account because of "faulty/spammy pins" or something like that.
    so they might manually look at your account, make sure it seems normal then.
    thats just my 1 experience with their support team.
