    My pins are not getting repinned when I pin my sites pin to the group boards. I am regularly pinning pins from my site to around 10 big group boards and they merely gets 1 or 2 repins.

    Although, when I pin other sites pins to those same group boards, they gets lots of repins.

    One thing to note is that, when I pin pins to my own boards they gets few repins.

    I tried creating new accounts and pins from them, but no repins yet.

    I researched a bit on few group boards and found some other people's pin from my site and they got many repins.

    Now I am wondering if Pinterest is able to identify that the new account created is my?

    How can I start getting repins through group boards from my old account (that has lots of followers and authority)?

    Yeah that happens many a time with me.
    I am not sure what actually happens here if Pinterest triggers something or what.

    I even tried using HQ quality images to gather more attention but it goes in vain.
    Waiting for more answers on this.

    Cheers

    Well you have to beat the smart feed. And you can only beat the smart feed with smart decisions.

    - Pinterest will show people pins that are relevant to the user. Meaning he might be following your sexy girls account but never pins or likes sexy girls. So his feed won't show him sexy girls
    - Pinterest will only show relevant pins. What makes a pin relevant? Repins and matching meta-information. So let's say I am interested into sexy girls and repin that crap all the time. Now two things will happen. Pins about sexy girls from people I am following will surface more regulary in my smart feed AND relevant pins from other people I am not following with be shown.

    Now what does that mean about group boards? They are more or less irrelevant. The main group board I am active in used to have repins around 5-50 a year ago. Now it has 0 to 10 and 10 is rare.
    Which doesn't mean you can't work them...but pretty HQ quality images are the least you need. The audience needs to be super targeted. and your pins need to be so as well.

    As of now I did not find a good way to beat the system. Lately I found it hard to get more than 100 repins on my money-pins. However the old viral pins are still at around 3-4% click through rate and get 50-100 repins each day. Really not making sense of it.

    Anyone with a solution? Only pins from my site are not getting repins. Pins from other site are getting repins as they were before.

    i already told you, that apparently pinterest thinks your pins are not relevant.
    this could be for a couple of reasons
    - your pins suck (can easily test that)
    - your domain is somewhat flagged
    - your pins are not optimized properly
    - the url already has been pinned and shared widly -> leading to more relevancy
    - you've been pining the same url more than twice to the group board
    - yuo have been spaming the group board too much
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    1. Many of my pins already got viral on Pinterest and Pinterest is no. 1 traffic source for my site. I asked my blogger friends to pin the same pin that I pinned and they got many repins, so definitely my pins don't sucks.

    2. Domain is not flagged because I am still receiving lot of traffic from old pins. I also seen people pinning my pins to group boards and they got many pins.

    3. Pins are completely optimized for Pinterest as I create long images for Pinterest with title on it.

    4. I don't pins my any pins more than once to any group boards.

    5. I only pins once a day to only relevant group boards.

    I also contacted Pinterest but got very irrelevant reply saying what are group boards and how to get invited and bla bla bla. I replied them explaining the issue in brief and again got irrelevant reply saying that it takes 2-3 days for pins to get indexed and bla bla bla.

    I think Pinterest people are doing this knowingly.

    Now I am helpless and need to find out a way fast.

    If you have a business account, look in the analytics. You'll see which pins are getting impressions, repins and clickthrus. Work with those by repinning them more often, but spread out so that it doesn't look like spam.
