    How many accounts can you safely create on Pinterest under one IP? Thanks for the ad vice.

    I recommend creating only 1 account per IP address.

    If you decide not to.. You will see your accounts
    starting to become deactivated.

    I opened about 30 accounts with a total of 10 proxies. So a few accounts per proxy. Now when I'm uploading pics I don't use a proxy at all. Pinterest asks me every now and then to fill a captcha when I log in to an account straight after closing another, but none of my accounts have been deactivated. (I'm running for 2\3 months)

    Yes that feature is available. I Recommend just grabbing some accounts from
    a supplier it's much cheaper then creating them yourself & if you find the right
    supplier you'll notice the quality will last longer vs creating them yourself.

    I am also interested to know the limits on the number of repins, likes, comments we can do per account ..

    Should we be using a dedicated private proxy for every account we harvest ???

    dedicated IP per account would be ideal

    Thinking about it it seems unlikely that Pinterest will ban just for having heaps of accounts on one IP, because of people living in boarding houses etc. I think as long as I create each account on a separate IP it should be okay, at least as long as none of the accounts blatantly spam. I now have 9 accounts posting two images a day for one week from the same IP (I created each account on Tor) and all of them remain functional and always land on the category page so it seems good for now.

    I don't think they are doing aggressive banning yet. Keep your finger on the pulse, though, because if people start complaining about spam they will. It's in their best interest.

    So if i use lets says 500 accounts from a provider and start using a bot to favorite, pin, repin, commenting, etc...

    What is more adequate for having good results, wihtout banning and beeing cost effective:

    a) Public proxies
    b) shared proxies
    c) Private proxies

    Then for those 500 accounts how many proxies should i use, i know that 1 per account would be ideal but having 500 private proxies would ruin me..... so what would be the best and balanced solution?

    Thanks,
    Morg

    How much daily traffic are you able to drive to your landing pages? What private proxy service do you use? And how much money each month are you able to make each month using that many accounts?

    I ask cause I'm currently using PinPal Bot with 15 proxies and 100 accounts and can drive 100-200 clicks a day on Pinterest to my niche site. I'd like to scale it up to 1000 accounts like you have but I'm wondering if it's worth the cost. Private proxies aren't cheap and I'm currently spending more for proxies each month then the traffic it's generating is earning me. However, I do think private proxies are necessary for managing a large volume of accounts.

    Thanks.
