    I got an e-mail from Pinterest saying they blocked my website, but I can still see some traffic from them. When I click the pin, it goes to my site. How do I verify if it's really blocked?

    Thanks. I'll wait for this.

    Anyway, what should I do now that it is blocked? Can just I create a new site, upload all of my posts, and then redirect from my old domain to the new domain?

    Another reason could be that the pins could be embedded on some other sites besides pinterest itself. I'd like to know what led to this. Sounds gangsta! Lol

    I have 100 accounts posting my links 10x a day for each account. I have been running this for 3 months with no problem. Then, I created a business account for my website, but I couldn't verify it. I then asked pinterest to help me verify my site. When I e-mailed them, I got a reply saying they blocked my website because they said several users reported my site as spammy. Weird thing is, I'm still receiving traffic until now.

    Yeah. It's weird. I tried clicking on my pins several times and there are no error message "the website is blocked" or something like that. I also tried different proxies and used different accounts but it seems my site is not blocked.

    Much safer version would be to pin your site posts from account and repin with others.
