    Hi,

    I have just started with Pinterest few days ago and I just now started to post pins. I posted around 50 pins (mixed my own and repins) and followed around 50 people. I got 3 user following me.

    So I wonder how many follows/pins/likes per day is safe?

    I have just one account.

    I would keep following to 250-300
    You can do as much pinning and liking..
    But there is a time when you start posting too many pins at a time people start unfollowing you, because they don't want their home feed filled by pins from single user, so stay on right track i would do about 50 pins at one time, and twice a day

    You can follow hundreds of people if you like, don't worry

    I did around 100 following yesterday.

    However I didn't notice that anyone of people i have been following is following me. I got 10 followers and when and I can still follow them which probably mean that i didn't follow them but they found me some other way. Maybe other marketers.

    4th account banned. This time at 20 sec delay between likes. Brand new account and I managed to get 150 followers after about 12 hours. Am I risking getting my main account banned also? I've never ran the bot on it. I'm using Instafire.

    Yeah, the follow back ratio is pretty bad on Pinterest.

    I just followed 800+ today all within 10 hours. I probably won't follow/unfollow again until 3 days later.

    Some people report even less that 10% followers out of the number of people they are following.

    Anyway I now have 200 pins (80 with my sites's link) around 20 followers, 100 likes and I follow 2000 people, but i didn't see any traffic from pinterest.

    I will add link to my site in the description but I doubt it will make much difference.
