    Hi Guys

    My website url was banned on Pinterest

    I don’t spam just pin to my blog posts

    The message I am getting is that the community has reported my site as spam

    How do I fix it?

    Thanks

    I follow a couple of people on Pinterest and their links are also blocked. They told me that they were reported for spam even though they do not spam at all. Apparently, it happened to a lot of people within the past few weeks and the best thing you can do right now is message the Support to get unblocked.

    Don't Pin a lot of posts at a single day. If you do a lot posts at a time or even in a day. Your URL will be blacklisted and so you aren't able to do posts further.

    How is the support at Pinterest?

    Have you by any chance got your account reversed?

    The deed is already done i think. You can write to Support if they can lift the ban. Most times, it's just a bot that regulates and not really a report from the community. If you think you want to make a good earning through your method then buy a new domain of $0.99, use the link on pinterest and the redirect the new domain to your main site. Semi-cloak.

    I wonder what happened and who reported you.
    I once got banned, but after I messaged Pinterest mods they said it was an automated algo that banned me. And I was unblocked after 2 days.
    I upload around 2-3 images every other day and I pin A LOT using Tailwind.
    So my advice is to reach out and speak to the mods first.

    I've never had my URL blocked on Pinterest. Just a few account bans but I wasn't able to get them reversed.

    It may be different for URL blocks. I talked to someone a few days ago who has a URL block right now and they had one in the past which they were able to get reversed by contacting support.

    Very happy for you! Please tell me where you wrote and what exactly? Only the bot answers me that they consider my site to be spam and will not restore it (like everyone has a standard message)

    If you get the "final" spam message....there is no way to restore your website url, if you are only using Pinterest traffic for this site, just port the content onto another domain and away you go again....

    I do a Pin of each of my posts - 10-15 Pins per day - is it safe or not?

    My site is already blocked on facebook and I couldn’t unblock even after a few months... I don’t want the same thing to happen with the Pinterest

    It’s interesting, if they write to them a year later that I just bought a domain (new owner), I want to have an account for work and the domain is blocked, unlock?

    But what about traffic from repins? It could be very significant, according to my experience. Especially for old accounts. We lose it this way. There was a chance to change URL of pins to new domain. But looks like they closed this option if domain is blocked. What is logical.
    Have you any idea how to save traffic from repins for blocked domains?

    Me too face the same issue don't find any solution yet. They don't redirect domain from Pinterest account. So redirection don't work in this case.

    IF your account is suspended and they tell you it will not be re-instated....then you need to create a new account.

    You need to check some of the Pins / Repins of the banned account to check if the urls are still active....if they are still active, then keep your fingers crossed that Pinterest does not just block them all at a later date.

    IF all the suspended accounts urls are blocked....then whether they are pins or repins they are gone....but you can still create redirects to send traffic to those banned site urls.

    Thank you for your answer!
    I've faced the situations often in the past when the account was blocked, but the website was stayed alive ( one website per one account ).
    Significant traffic from the repins can live for years, proved by experience.
    But the latest trends show that the website can be blocked while the account stays alive.
    Look, what if website1 is claimed in the account. And website1 simply redirects traffic to website2. What website will be banned if any, website1 or website2? Could you please share your experience.
