    Wake up this morning and banggggg like 4 of my accounts are suspended it says... including my main account which iv been growing since last year :(:(:(

    To be honest i dont really know what to do with pinterest? should I just make multiple accounts again on proxies and run them on FL again and hope for the best... Or should I just start climbing the ladder with the one account? but what if that one gets banned aswell ???

    Pinterest is a kick in the b*llox they seem to be banning everyone

    Just write them back and see if you can get your account reinstated. Also, be sure to ask what got your account suspended in the first place. To be safe, just set up 1 account per ip.

    If you didnt do anything spammy - they will give it back. I had like 5-6 successful writings with their support, they apologise and re-activate the account every time.

    But - I never spam and do only follow/unfollow and repinning.

    I just had my blog linked to my pinterest. so everytime an article was published it was shared on my pinterest...
    I was also running my pinterest on a bot but i dont think that could be the case because they said my pins were spammy :( which there werent compared to the amount of crap already on pinterest.

    Just to help us understand a little further,

    - are the articles original?
    - does your account also repin/pin other content?
    - are you doing the follow/unfollow method? if so how much? (Pinterest doesn't seem to acknowledge that they ban for following too much.)
    - have you and other botters consider the possibility that pinterest have caught on to bot's footprint? (Pinterest allows the use of auto-scheduling tools from providers like Tailwind. Haven't seen any users being banned who claim to use those type of tools. But the bots popular here in BHW, well, I see ban reports all the time.)
    - is your website banned along with the account? (You can check by having another account, yours or a friends, pin from the website.)

    You haven't gave us enough info, if anything.
    Beside those question up above, what was your repin/upload ratio? What was ratio between other links and your blog(s)?

    Why spam BHW to increase post count?

    What he did exactly could give us some explanation how Pinterest works and how to avoid banning in the future.

    How many are you following/unfollowing and repinning per day to get your account banned?

    Also doing the same thing. Better be safe than sorry.

    Why did u even bother posting that ??? :smash:

    For everyone who is wondering and trying to avoid the same problem...

    Yes my content was unique but i was also embedding alot of youtube videos.
    I linked them up to my SNAP autoposter which was also connected to my facebook twitter tumblr and they had no problems.
    Maybe i could of been a little aggressive without the bot when thinking about my why i got the ban because i did let the following to followers ratio go for abit... but once again never the case before .
    My website has been banned from pinterest it sais it links to spam...
    Iv also had 5 accounts linked on SNAP autoposter but 4 of them got banned..

    It could be alot of things maybe the proxies i was using , or maybe a left a footprint behind which i most likely did...
    BUT Lesson learned just keep it safe to 1 or 2 main accounts dont try over do it.
    I have seen a guy who once had 300 accounts linked to his blog doing an adsense journey anddddd... they all got banned.

    But in anyways is there anyway way of unblocking your website from pinterest?
    I was thinking of doing an IFTTT recipe linking pinterest to twitter or tumblr or fb maybe

    Any suggestions?

    Ok, your content was unique. But, you haven't answered my questions.
    How many repins (from other users) have you done daily per account?
    And how many original pins have you uploaded which leads to your website? I'm interested in ratio.

    I can't see any problems if my repins/fresh upload radio is somewhere around 80-20. So, in every 10 pins two of them will be my upload and lead to different posts on my blog.

    Did you always had the same link, or maybe too many times posted the same link?

    I don't know what to recommend you except - try doing everything manually for the next two weeks on 2-3 new accounts and find out all Pinterest limits, buy new domain, and post a lot of other people repins.

    Let us know how is it going.

    I had 2 domains banned. One was unbanned after 6 months through no action of mine. It just came back. The other is gone. Keep track of your site by visiting /source every so often. If after a few weeks and it's still around, your site may come back after 6 months. Or you can do what others seem to have done and nag customer support 5-6 times. Others were successful doing this.

    My pinterest was used for my old blog where i just pinned mainly from that and a few random pins from around pinterest.
    I have recently been only pinning from my new site because i didnt have an issue before and dont really see why its a problem to them like obv if u have a website u guna be pinning ur own stuff like xD but yeah it didnt really last that long to be fair .
    and no it was just new content from my site nothing duplicate.

    you shouldnt have a problem because you seem to be doing things carefully but for me it just wasnt driving enough traffic if i mixed it up.
