The redirects were NOT the reason Pinterest suspended some people's accounts. If that was the case I would have lost hundreds of accounts. It's just that almost everybody uses redirects (because it's the smart way to run Pinterest accounts because it protects your money sites), and so of course when Pinterest does a sweep almost everyone is going to say they were using redirects.
I really think people aren't being careful enough. They're not making sure that what they're pinning closely aligns with the pages they're sending people to. If you do that, Pinterest users are more likely to report your pins as SPAM, and then when Pinterest does a sweep -- guess what, you get hit.
Yes, we are using automation, but you still need to be sure to give the Pinterest visitor what they want -- high quality information on a high quality site that is as closely aligned with what the pin image shows as possible. That makes for happy visitors, it makes for fewer SPAM reports and it makes for high conversion rates and RPMs (earnings per 1,000 visitors).
Automation should not be an excuse for sloppiness. All the time SM2 saves you should be invested into making sure that you're making your Pinterest visitors happy.
