I received numerous messages from my readers that they were unable to pin my content in Pinterest. It looks like Pinterest marked my website as SPAM yet again ????

Pinterest

The same issue happened more than 8 months ago but thanks to the huge help of the community, Pinterest realized that they made an error and promised me that it won’t happen again. They actually told me to contact them if it happens again.

Well, guess what – it happened again! I’ve already contacted Pinterest but unfortunately all I get is a generic reply saying that they blocked my website because several users reported content from this site as spammy.

As you and I know there is absolutely nothing spammy in my website and the fact that I’ve had millions of repins is a true testament to the quality of the site.

— A recent update: I am back in Pinterest (again), thanks for your help! Please read the last paragraph —

In the description you can state that you would like to pin from [insert the website name] however this website has been recently blocked.

You can tell Pinterest what you think about their (ridiculous) decision to block the website and also let your friends know about it.

    Zendesk is the ones who block it, every body seems to think its pinterest but zendesk is the contract help desk center for pinterest. For me they have no heart and it doesn’t matter if my pins are spamy or not any account i put up they just delete it. Ill continue to educate people on who is actually doing the deleting the accounts, the lack of customer service from this company will eventually be there downfall.

    Hi – Heather from 1001pallets.com – we just got blocked by pinterest too. We want to compile as large of a list as possible of sites that hit a certain threshold and were randomly blocked by pinterest, as this hurts all of the small businesses and readers/contributors to all of our sites/blogs, etc. We’re planning on submitting articles to the associated press. We found this interesting article, and if this is really happening, the only way to fight is to become a LARGE association of victims. You can email me directly at [email protected] if you’re interested in our call to action! Thank you for your time. http://hibusiness.ca/2016/07/27/website-marked-as-spam-on-pinterest-the-mafia-is-doing-it/

    My website (fitneass.com) was also banned from Pinterest, came back after almost one year, and now is blocked again.
    What’s funny, is that my website was blocked right after one pin exploded (gained over 200,000 visits in one day from that pin). And after a few days, Pinterest was full with the very same picture linking to fresh websites with an article copied word by word from my website.
    Well, this is very disappointed. I really don’t know how to get back on Pinterest anymore. I’ve sent tens of email bagging for a “human” to manually check my website for spam, but always get the same “robotic/programmed” answer Jenny from healthyandnaturalworld.com received:
    “We blocked this website because several users reported content from this site as spammy. To us, spam is any unsolicited or unauthorized material that’s promotional, commercial, fraudulent, false, deceptive or misleading. It’s important for us to block this type of content because it often results in negative experiences for users. Unfortunately we will not be removing that website from our blacklist.”
    Disappointment is the only feeling Pinterest left me.
