1. No, because sm2 only targets users with an expressed interest in your market (board followers).

2. If the user followed your account and not just a specific board, yes.

SM2 updates the images once every 7 days for each account. Unless you're running on very slow hardware, it usually only takes a couple of minutes per account to do the update.
It's because it's trying to catch-up on unfollowing. 2.11 and prior were not properly unfollowing when any user an account was following got suspended (which happens frequently). Give it time. It should catch up after a few hours (24 hours max I would think) and get back on track.

I haven't seen that the number of boards creates a lot of difference. You can, of course, capture more traffic if you are pinning more and diversifying your keywords across the boards. But it's not about the boards so much as the keywords.
Not yet but soon. I'll have an export option in an upgrade that will let you export the account and job data and import it into another install.

I've found that your best success will come with matching the pins as closely as possible to the page you're sending them to.

For Mac, open Terminal and run this (keep the quotes in place):

No. No discounts or deals. The price is going up January 1st, though.

I don't usually post about specific updates to the forum, but this latest one (version 2.1) is significant, so I wanted to go over what's been added:

1. Added Settings tab where you can configure email notifications for certain types of account errors.

You can now configure SM2 to send you an email any time an account is suspended, a site is blocked, an account is put into Safe Mode (where Pinterest requires you to change your password) or there's a possible issue with the proxy / Internet connection.

I recommend you not receive emails for proxy/connection issues unless you're trying to troubleshoot a problem. Proxies routinely have issues throughout the day so it would be unusual for you not to receive at least a few emails per day from each proxy when pinning 100 times a day per proxy. If you run a lot of accounts / proxies the email can get overwhelming.

The email is sent from, which means that the data regarding the error is transmitted temporarily to the server. It's heavily encrypted before being transmitted and is not stored on the server at all. As soon as it's used to send the email to you, it's gone. So we're not keeping any of your personal / business data on our servers.

2. Added the ability to pause all jobs for an account if the account is suspended, a site is blocked, an account is put into safe mode or there are connectivity issues (see the new Settings tab).

This was badly needed. Instead of causing multiple errors until you can get to the VPS to handle them, you can now configure SM2 to pause all jobs for the affected account when the error occurs.

3. Compacting the database will now remove any pins recorded in the database that are more than 24 hours old since the pin data is never used beyond 24 hours and occupies a significant amount of space in the database.

The space savings is fairly small (2%), but there are quite a few indexes that get updated with that 2% so you can see a small performance improvement from it. No need to hang on to unused data anyway. The more efficient, the better!

4. When Pinterest blocks a link for SPAM, the target URL that was blocked now appears in the error log (and in the email notification).

Also badly needed. The full URL will appear in the email notifications, and you can click on the error log entry to copy the full details and paste them into a text editor or something if you can't see the full URL in the error log list itself.

As always, your feedback on these improvements is welcome and encouraged.

When SM2 drags like that there are couple of possible reasons:

1. One of your proxies isn't working. This is the most common reason. When a proxy stops working it will drag the system down. (I'm working on handling that better in a future update.)

2. Your database has problems and needs to be compacted. This can take a long time depending on how large your database is and how fast your computer is. I would give it an hour at least just to be safe.

If none of those things work, the next thing to try is to go to the Processes tab and click the Open Data Folder button at the bottom. Once you do that it will open up the folder in Explorer. Close SM2 then rename the SocialMuptiplier2.sqlite file to something else and run SM2 again.

Re-enter your accounts one at a time (not the pin/follow jobs, just add the accounts). Make sure they can all be added without any problems. If they can, then it's not the proxies, it's something wrong with the database.

It's not uncommon to get reinstated. Your account probably got suspended automatically because of spam complaints from Pinterest users or something like that. I would take a look at your boards / pins / site and make sure that where you're sending people matches up well with the pins that are leading them there.

What kind of hardware are you running SM2 on? If you are running it on low-end hardware, you're going to get low-end performance. That's true with any software, however much you paid for it.

I'm running 120+ accounts on one VPS, but the VPS has the hardware specs to handle it.

Also, keep in mind that it will run slowly when you're adding new accounts and it's building up the new account databases. However, I have an update coming out in a couple of days that should fix that issue. The new account databases (images/boards) will be built more slowly, but system performance will be greatly improved.

At what point does the first instance of SM2 become saturated/overwhelmed/be made to work too hard such that we need to look to create a second or more databases?

... or are the separate databases created just for good housingkeeping to keep certain niches separate from others maybe?

That depends on the hardware you're running on, how powerful the processor is, how fast the hard drive is, etc. A rule of thumb is this: when the accounts are running normally (not when they're first added -- the tool always slows down when initially gathering images etc), if clicking on a different tab doesn't immediately switch tabs (there's a pause in between the switch), it's time to create a new database. SM2 should be very responsive when you're clicking around and moving around in the software. There shouldn't be pauses in between actions. Again, with the exception of when you've just added in a brand new account with follow/pin jobs and SM2 is initially gathering the images and boards.

And yes, when you have lots of accounts separating them into different databases is good housekeeping as well.

301 etc redirects are easily detected and will instantly get your site blocked. Javascript redirects are not easily detected by a machine and won't get an automatic block.
