    Hi,

    I am trying to make Pinterest accounts and drive traffic to my Amazon store but all of my accounts are banned.

    I tried 3 times.

    First attempt was with 55 accounts with 55 private proxies they are all banned. I was doing manual work. They were banned for mass pinning.

    Second attempt was again with 55 accounts with different 55 private proxies from same provider. I was using a bot, this was automated, they all banned.

    Third attempt with 5 accounts with hotmail accounts and different provider, but today they are all banned :(

    I am tired to try, but i want to make money.

    I need BHW community help and discuss about the pinterest bans, how to avoid from them.

    Also any method to recover all these? I tried most of them but couldn't manage to recover.

    What do you think Pinterest is so strict nowadays?

    Thanks

    too little info really.
    - check your proxies, might be bad ones
    - start all accounts manually and let them age a bit
    - create social media profiles for each account to let them seem more real
    - with any account under 5k followers I am not sure it is worth your effort trying to recovver them

    it seems that you are leaving some kind of footprints
    * change your proxies, maybe they are main problem.
    * don't buy pinterest account. they are created on different IP and you use them on different IP. create them yourself. it will take max 3/4 minutes to create each account. never used hotmails, always using yahoo emails got no problems yet.
    * never do aggressive strategy while accounts are not aged. let them age, wait for few days and then start follow/unfollow and pinning slowly.

    They have always been though. The 2 posts above me have been simple strategies you need to follow.

    Aging of the accounts is one of the main criteria, along with eliminating the footprints.

    Join some pinterest discussion groups on skype, you get lots of inputs there.

    Thank you for your precious replies.

    Well after my banned 55 accounts, i changed the proxies and my accounts are banned again.
    I am creating my own accounts with a dedicated proxy.
    I was using muchomail then hotmail both banned.

    First 55 accounts group was banned because of mass pinning they had around 4-5k followers each. I was doing manual work.
    Second 55 accounts group was banned at around 10-12k followers on each. I was using bot.
    Third 5 accounts group was banned at around 3-5k followers on each. I was using bot but i changed the proxy service and used hotmail for accounts. I created 6 boards for each and started following again. When i woke up i saw that the accounts were banned.

    So i can't find any connection between them. What should be the footprint?

    Dude you are trying with just too many accounts.

    Use one account, create authority account out of it, and after that create few more account.

    3-4 accounts are enough.

    I think there is some problem with your proxies provider.
    Which proxies do you use? Avoid extension proxies and try to use proxies or VPN software to get positive results. I'm using HMA Pro VPN and Pinterest didn't ban me ever.

    Hey,
    I used myprivateproxy.net now i am using sslprivateproxy.com

    Also does it matter if my business account is created with an IP other than US?

    Build accounts slowly and let them age before you start monetizing. Never monetize aggressively and first experiment with just 3 to 5 accounts and see if they get banned. If they don't, then expand the action to more accounts.

    If you're using Adsense it usually is a bit rough, although affiliate programs like Amazon or AliExpress have better ratios it's surely fine at maintaining authority.

    As Adrian said above authority accounts work 100 times better.. In comparison, 150k follower accounts generate 15-20 times more traffic than any 10 15,000 standalone accounts combined due to exposure & reach.

    Build authority and always, I mean it... Stay ahead of the algorithm :) !
