i almost have had enough of pinterest after just 3 weeks. i can hardly believe how they suspend my accounts: they black list my site. (maybe there is a way to know this?) i have the site url listed with account X. i posted some 4 pins in the span of 3 weeks. (hardly spamming compared to those who spam the hell out of some group boards.) i then repin from account A, and B. the second i repin, the account is gone. its like hard-wired switch! i had to try account B to find out why. so they left me account X live for what? this really doesnt make sense. so what if my follower repin my pin? they got suspended too? one thing i am not sure is i wonder if i repin to my own board (instead of a group board), will i be suspended? from what i've gathered from all the journey posts here, pinterest is prolly not worth the time. 1 of the journeys manage to make $1k a month, which is the most i have found. also based on my observation, there is not really such a thing as blackhat pinterest. all i have found so far is some serious projects with a well-established blog which in turn lead to a well-established store (or affiliates). i do see some recipe spamming leading to adsense sites. my conclusion is that you cannot just create stores with many items, and have pins linking to the stores. i seriously dont see that working. if so, to run an amazon store, i might as well just try to rank the site on google. why do i even need pinterest?
