    so 20 days ago i got lucky and got invited in 10 fitness boards..

    so i had website (landing page) and 5 pinterest accounts
    i invited all the pinterest accounts to these boards and the journey began..
    everyday i was writing articles, then pinning them to pinterest by these 5 accounts to these 10 huge boards.. but keep in mind that i was doing it manually so i was gathering good pictures which had lots of repins so i was downloading them and uploading to these boards but it was linking to my weight loss articles.. so i was getting lots of repins and likes and in 8 days earned 110 Euro from adsense

    but after 8 days these 4 accounts got blocked by pinterest and only could save 5 huge boards from 10.. so sent the invitations to new pinterest accounts which were fresh (cause i created them after blocking), i purchased new domain and the new journey began
    i'm doing the same thing but got only maximum 2/3 repins and maximum 2 Euro on lucky days,, but 0.5-1 euro on avarage days

    i don't know what is the problem :/
    i have unique ip on each accounts and have new domain but i don't get likes or repins and this makes me wonder what is the problem..
    i control/monitor them also from one account which is not in this game and i wonder because trash pictures are getting 5/10 repins and likes but mines are getting almost zero..
    please help me

    1. For whatever reason, accounts that are younger than 15 days are ghosted. That means, your pins, whenever you pin them, are simply not visible anywhere. Make new accounts and let them age for 15-20 days before you use them in groups boards.
    2. It seems that Pinterest is significantly decreasing the reach of each pin last few days. I used to get 200-300 visits a day from each account before, now I'm getting measly 30-40 visits per account. This is a newest change which has hit me hard and dropped my traffic and my earnings by more than 75%. I'm very concerned with this and I'm trying to figure out how to come out on top of this ATM.
    3. Your IPs might be flagged or monitored if you haven't changed them. This is unlikely (I still use IPs that were used for 3-4 accounts that are now suspended), but it's possible.

    i don't think it's the problem of ghosting.
    pinterest is not the 2010 pinterest. it's all about quality and creative now. i don't know what's your criteria of "big" boards. if you buy invitation to those boards with 100000+ pins but with only 20000+ contributors, you got the wrong place to pin your article. real big boards with great repin rates are usually exclusive. you'd better join better boards

    3 weeks ago i was making 15/20 euros a day and 5/10 repins with the same boards but now hardly earning 2/3 euros and getting 1-2 repins :/ the problem is that the boards are the same, the technique is the same but the users are fresh and i can't understand whats maybe the reason of these drastic changes...




    yes the new accounts are fresh and they are on the new private IPs which are clear so i don't think that there is the problem of IPs

    maybe there is a change in algorithm of pinterest.. who knows..
    but i don't like these changes, i work manually and do a lot hard work and getting very low repins and likes so thinking about giving up..

    I made $1,600 in December and went to about $200 in January, so I feel your pain. My numbers have slowly grown since then to something more respectable but it's not always necessarily something wrong, it can just be natural fluctuations.

    I wouldn't invite your other accounts to other peoples group boards, unless it specifically allows it; it's asking for trouble. I generally don't allow it on any of my boards, and would remove both parties. Its no longer a problem since they added the ability to block it from happening.
