    In the last few days Pinterest has blocked images pinned to Pinterest from linking back to Hub Pages.

    I had some Hub Pages that were getting several thousand unique visitors a day from Pinterest. But no more.

    It would appear that Hub Pages just keeps getting slapped down in one way or another.

    I'm just not sure if Hub Pages will ever get back to it's glory days. I for one have stopped putting all my eggs in one basket.

    I started expanding widely to my own sites and other sites after Hub Pages got slapped by the Google Panda.

    I'm still making good money there but not to the level I once did.

    Will have to see what I can do now.

    I think they blocked them because someone spammed there "food" search keyword. Search "food" and youll see lots of images tagged with food.

    Yes they did didn't they. Just can't believe they blocked the whole site though. Going to work on some domains and pin from there.

    Use a spare domain to use for redirect URLs to post in Pinterest. They can play whack a mole forever. :)

    assphuck is right, just use other domains to redirect. Never put all your eggs in one basket.

    I haven't tried redirects, but doesn't pinterst detect these and warn their visitors?
