    I have 8 accounts with total 22K followers, and these accounts used to drive me nearly 10K visitors daily from Pinterest with PinBlaster.

    But since last 2 weeks, my traffic start to drop tragedy, But none of my accounts got banned.
    So, I checked on pin analysts, the top view of all my pins is 6. Pinterest ghosted all my accounts.

    I haven't confirm yet, but I think it may cause by
    1. Keeping over follow/unfollowe limit
    2. Keeping pining scraped pins from pinterest with new URL.

    So, now I tweak my PinbBaster setting to avoid over follow/unfollow limit. Hope it would make my account unghosted.

    Any good way to unghost accounts?

    I've said the same thing before. I have one account with over 9,000 followers that used to get 100's of repins. Now I'm lucky to get 6 repins on an awesome image. Not really sure what to do.

    In general, what leads to a ghost ban is self promotion brought to thte excess. Unfortunately is not possible to get a full list of those sites that ghost ban. There haveonly been some reports from Stumble Upon, Twitter and some others. They seem to be using ghost banning to limit the growing issue of spam and other things like trolling through the sites. A general heads up that could mean there is a ghost ban on your social media is a cut down of the visibility of your shares and votes.

    The account is lost. Start anew and clear footprints or the next one will be flagged too.

    If you are monetizing your accounts and pinning from your own websites then you need all your actions to look really natural. As if you were a middle aged stay at home mom pinning for fun. Those are the accounts that grow. I developed a desktop app to manage all of my pinning and scheduling. It looks like I am pinning naturally at random times and I can schedule everything to repeat on a weekly basis. This type of thing might help prevent you from getting your account ghosted or removed. PM me if you are interested.

    Didn't know accounts could get ghosted like this, good to know. Not sure of a solution for you unfortunately, probably just need to not do so much self promotion.

    Could anyone please advise of the best pinning software out on the market, that allows me to randomise the pinning as much as possible. Would love to develop automation to run like "middle aged stay at home mom pinning for fun."
