Pinterest Pins Showing as No-Index ? Why ?

So I was doing some pinning last night and did a couple dozen pins no problems and all displayed as indexable and everything. Then this morning I noticed that this last pin I posted last night happen to be showing as a no-index tag on my chrome extension. At first I thought that something was just bugged, but no it most definitely has a no-index assigned to it. The question is why and does this really happen on different pins ? I have been doing some testing and it almost appears that Pinterest has some target keywords or something that when it detects it assigns a no-index to the pin page possibly. Does anyone know if this is true ?

I'm not a big pinterest guy so I don't really have all that much experience with them over the years.

Interesting.

What is that chrome extension you are using? Is it specifically for Pinterest?

Perhaps it's a quarantine? Especially for certain keywords it would make sense for Pinterest to apply a no index and then remove it later if the pin turns out to be legitimate. It might go away if the pin gains traction. Or depending on the keyword, you may have been shadow-banned or sandboxed until a moderator reviews the content.

PM me the pin if you want and I can also take a look.

When I check Pinterest
what chrome extension you are using ?
When I check pins on Pinterest I see noindex:null in the source code. Perhaps OP's extension just looks for the term "noindex" and is getting this wrong?

They are randomly noindexing accounts these days, seemingly without reason. I'll mass create accounts and post to them, and 50% will be gone by day 2, and about 90% within a week. Roughly 10% will stick, but most of those will either be noindexed, or the algorithm will simply give it no exposure (which might as well be the same thing). You're better off focusing your efforts on almost anything other platform. You aren't going to get monetizable traffic from Pinterest in 2020. This comes from someone that spent 2 years creating the mother of all Pinterest bots.

Finding a working method in today's Pinterest world is the challenge, IMO the bots out there are way behind whats required for Pinterest today.
