    Hello, some of you know me with my thread http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...614-my-first-journey-50-euro-day-adsense.html where I was earning over 50 euro a day by pinterest + adsense. My Pinterest account which I was using to get a lot of traffic was suspended, at first I didn't do anything... and that's the mistake.

    Before a week ago I went to https://help.pinterest.com/anonymous_requests/new and filled the form that I want my account reactivated.
    I've got an email a minute after that
    "Hi there -
    If you're seeing a message that your account is suspended, then we may have taken it down from Pinterest because of something you pinned. We don't allow pins on Pinterest that are spammy or sexually explicit.

    If you think we made a mistake and want to let us know, just reply to this email.

    Thanks for understanding,

    The Pinterest Team"


    I answered to that mail and told them that maybe someone was reported me or something like that, and I know the rules and I think that all my pins are ok.

    Minute after that:
    "Hi there -

    Yesterday, after 5-6 days and not answer from them, I opened another ticket(it's a little spam but anyway...)
    Today I've got this:
    "Hi Lisa,

    I'm sorry about that! It looks like your account was suspended because some of your pins were reported as spam. I reviewed and reactivated your account. To avoid this in the future I recommend not using misleading links in your pins. This is often viewed as spammy behavior.



    Sorry for the inconvenience,

    Bedford | Community Specialist"


    Now I am a happy panda ^^ :cow04:

    I hope this will help to these with banned accounts.:bubblegum

    Sounds good! Thanks for sharing. Congratulations on getting it back! Did you get pinblaster or something like it yet? Or is it all manually?

    Getting pins from Pinterest and uploaded them to my blog is automated by self made software, the other part is manual.

    Grats to you. Same thing happened to me a month or so ago. After asking for help in this forum, I made a few more accounts to pin with my reinstated account.

    How long did it take before you were suspended? How many pins were you doing a day?
    It seems some miserable user reported you.

    I was pinning 70-100 pins/day but all the pins were doing in 1 hour range.

    Lucky you, most of the users don't get their accounts back
    one of the reported that pinterest suspended his account, he went for support ticket and they said your account cannot be re-opened, because you were pinning same pin on different group boards .. DUH

    This is amazing. My account got suspended right now. What did you wright to their support? How long it took them to respond to your support ticket?

    My account had 5000 followers. No Spammy things no sexuality. Dont understand why it got suspended.
