    Has anyone using pinterest for traffic seen a recent drop in traffic. Ever since February 10th my traffic has roughly been cut in half. I use one main account and a few bots. Anyone know of any updates or penalties that pinterest has applied in the recent months?

    Check if you're being ghosted on Group Boards.

    What do you mean ghosted? I have never heard of that! Is there a way to be not ghosted?

    Also a friend of mine see's my main and my bots on his home feed. I do not think I am ghosted. Are there any other reasons my traffic may have dropped?

    Yes!!!! Been searching for months to see if any similar experiences. We used to dominate the key word with about 35 percent of the results.... then January 25th, boom....70% overnight reduction in traffic. Many emails back and forth to pinterest regarding drop and total bs answers. We also made screen shots to prove results of the search always had the same photos.... in other words, new images didnt filter down. I make the analogy that pinterest was like tetra. .. new "blocks" fall down pushing the images down. Now, the same images hang at the top and get thousands of repins. Whats going on other than pinterest is preparing to monetize. My entire company relied on interest traffic because mine is a visual, I image driven industry.

    Pinterest supervisor could care less and they want a 1 million dollars at minimum to advertise. Seriously?
    Dont know how to recover my dominance

    You could try creating groupboards and not rely so much on Pinterest's search algo for traffic. It'll take sometime to build, but it's a good long term strategy. Just a suggestion.
