    Hello Guys.

    Last week pinterest banned most of my accounts, many of which were more than a year (banned over 90% of my accounts, sometimes banned domains. When I add pins from the banned site I see the inscription: Sorry we blocked this link because it may lead to spam.).

    I have received many letters in one time:
    Your Pinterest account has been suspended
    We wanted to let you know we suspended your Pinterest account because of some activity that goes against our spam policies.
    On Pinterest, spam includes saving lots of unwanted or repetitive stuff, trying to game our systems, or posting fraudulent, deceptive or unsolicited commercial messages. We block spam like this because it creates a bad experience for other people on Pinterest.
    If you think we made a mistake, please let us know within the next 7 days.


    I want to understand the reasons for blocking my accounts:
    Pins from my sites were added to pinterest with the help of server script. When pins were added ip address were taken from the server.
    Some accounts included only pins from one site, and some accounts included pins from other sites but no more than 5%. There were accounts with group boards, where I many times added pins from my sites.
    I always used my personal computer from the same ip address
    All accounts were not a business.
    Some accounts were followers from 1000 to 10000.
    About 20 accounts were just registered, I didn’t do anything with them. And they were also banned.


    Guys tell me please why did pinterest banned my accounts? Why did pinterest some domains banned and some domains not banned? What is the reason?

    So if I add pins from my site to pinterest it means I spammed? Then all are spamers in pinterest?

    How can I add pins from my sites and not to be banned?

    How many pins did you pin per day? Did you pin your site to multiple accounts ? Were they all on same IP? I pin articles from my site to pinterest without a problem.

    from 1 site to 1 account

    Yes, there were the same ip adress. And they were worked more than a year.

    I just had the same thing happen to me with almost all of my accounts. I haven't pinned anything to them in ages, they're 2 years or more old, and boom. Gone.

    They must have just deployed a new kind of spam detection algo.

    Just 1 ip for all accounts? Maybe find a way to add more IPs.

    More footprints, easily traceable. Maybe mix it up some more. Many bloggers go with 80/20 rule.

    Are these from the same IP?

    I like to make my accounts look like normal users. And normal uses have various interests. Not just pinning from 1 website that's not even registered to their account. That way, when I get suspended, the accounts have a better chance of getting reinstated after a manual review. Only lost 1 so far.

    Firstly you should use proxy for your accounts. You are not pining spam but when you pin so much from your site its mean mass pining for pinterest and it is also spam for them. They just banned your domain firstly than started to ban your accounts which was pining from that domain. Than they detected you have so many account which are created with same ip and they banned them. Some of accounts they didnt ban because of account condition for example: account is active doing pins , like e.t.c and no spamming they forgive such accounts.

    yea it doesn't matter if its not "spam"... if you're posting the same website from 30 accounts 10 times a day to 100 boards.. it's still spam..

    You don't undestend me. Each account has its own site. For examples: I have 10 acconts and I have 10 sites for them.

    I should clarify that it was only 3 domains, and yes, there were banned on the same day. I was only making a few hundred a month from these domains so it was not a huge loss, and I hadn't done any work on my Pinterest project in a LONG time.

    The only footprint that I'm aware of is that I used a VPN to run my custom bot. But the last time I ran it was a very long time ago (> 1 year) so it seems odd that they would ban them now.

    1. 1 website/domain per 5 accounts.
    2. 1 proxy per 3 accounts (accounts made with same proxy and ran with same proxy)

    I have 500-600 Pinterest accounts, 100+ websites and 200 proxies.

    Like a beast. How are you managing the 500-600 pinterest accounts? Followliker?

    Also, how are you banking? Through CPA offers?
