Social Multiplier 2 / Re: 6 accounts suspended today :(
« on: April 12, 2017, 05:57:17 PM »
Jon's right.

I had a couple suspended today myself. Not bad. I'll take it considering I have many other ones up and running just fine!

Appealed both suspensions and now waiting to see if they'll reinstate them. If not, no biggie.

Restart and build again!

anyone else suffering with LOTS of failed pins with the following resource message "Sorry we could not fetch the image", roughly 20%-25% of all my pinning activities is resulting in this error message this last couple of days.

Yes, this has been happening to me also.

Kind of annoying, tbh.

Maybe Jon can enlighten us about what's actually going on here :)

Just to chime in here. I don't think it's the redirects at the root because none of mine were blocked and I have hundreds so if it was the redirects causing an issue surely I would have been affected.

Thanks for sharing that Jon!

I personally don't think it's a redirect problem either. It just happens with some accounts. Restart them, boom! We just need to accept that's what's going to happen with some accounts. Go at a slower pace and gradually build your accounts is what I say.

I see. Thanks for clarifying that with me!

The process may have been running in the background while I was removing the account from SM2, I'm not quite sure.

I will keep an eye on it and keep you posted.

You could also create multiple redirect domains/accts pointing to your site to ramp up over time.  No reason you couldn't have at least 5-20 of these.  They're fast to setup too with no actual site to build.  I'm actually surprised to see what seems to be a few mentions of people only having a couple of accts.  This is a powerful tool and you can run 10s or even 100s of accts (or even more...)

I don't follow all of what you wrote. Feel free to explain this in more detail for me :)


See if that thread helps you.

Yes! It helped me somewhat. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

Do the new redirect domains have to be related to the niche I'm in to be successful? Or can they just be random domains? I have some hanging around that I don't use. I guess they will look a bit spammy when they get many Pinterest backlinks to them so I can't use them for any normal SEO later on for other projects?!

After I've created my redirect domain, how do I use it in SM2? The video didn't explain this in full. Thanks!

Yes, I think they would have to be related. Everything must flow smoothly from the account all the way to your website with the same topic and theme.

You can definitely use other domains, but aesthetically, I don't think they'll look as good because the url will be displayed directly on the pin itself.

For example, "Pinned from www.example.com". It is all about looks with Pinterest it looks like. Just start afresh with other domains if I were you.

All you would have to do now with the redirect is to create a new Pinterest account that will be posting that redirect domain url.

Start a new account and plug that new Pinterest account "buffer account" into the software, using the redirect domain as target urls. That's it!

I hope that helps!

Social Multiplier 2 / Question about Exporting and Importing Accounts
« on: January 12, 2017, 11:02:56 AM »
I decided to migrate my data from a VPS to my older Laptop.

Now, all the transferred accounts, are they going to Pin the same images from the beginning?

Or will they just pick up from where they started in the old installation?

One more thing,

If I remove a certain account, in the Processes Tab, certain process tasks such as boardsearch or pinsearch are still running even though the account is gone.

Will they continue to Run in the future?

I installed the new update for SM2, and the quotes around the keyword is not working for me specifically.

I keep getting errors as SM2 searches for pins using that keyword with quotes!


How does SM2 gather pins?

Does it search for pins via related Pinterest boards or through the Pinterest search?


Jon, that is a great idea!  :)

It is like performing a Google search for more targeted search results. The quotes ("") maybe will retrieve better image results for your boards!

I just did a test on the Pinterest search and it gives you a more accurate results for a specific keyword or keyword phrase.

More targeted that way. I'm going to try that myself and test it that way from now on!

Jon, I was just looking around and trying different things with these Pinterest images and noticed that you can retrieve even more accurate images through SM2.

If you go beyond the search related images, if you filter them down even more by using the same keyword and looking for it in the Pin's description.

For example, say you're looking for fitness shoes. Obviously Pinterest is going to give you images that have nothing to do with shoes.

Now if you search the Keyword "Shoe" in the description of the pin, 90% of the images are now going to contain fitness shoes because it was in the Pin's description that the software pulled it from.

Then the unrelated pins are going to be wiped away, almost all of them. The description is even more accurate than the Pinterest search result itself!

What do you think?

Filter: Pinterest Search "Keyword" Results followed by the Pin Description Filter after identifying the images in the first step of the filter.

I hope you understand what I mean. Have a look for yourself.

I used the DownAlbum extension for Chrome for this process.

This is a great update/feature to the software!

Jon, is it possible to build an account on another computer without loading all the images and then transferring those boards and jobs into another SM2 program and load the images there instead.

I know you can transfer accounts now, but can you delay the process of the pinSearch once you create and update a "new" pinning job before transfer.

I hope you understand what I'm saying.

Thank you guys for all of your answers!

Jon, I wanted to ask you if you think Product pages such as Woocommerce products do well with Pinterest traffic.

Is it worth pursuing this kind of content?

Is it even profitable?

Say for example, essential oils.

If we post links to our site from pins containing essential oil products to our own woocommerce product pages, is this going to be profitable?

These are not PL products, we are selling the same big brand products found on Amazon.

What's your opinion on this?

Do you think informational articles are the best forms of content for Pinterest traffic?

I appreciate all the help!

I myself am tempted to align everything perfectly with the pins that are being posted to one account, but can you imagine keeping track of all the accounts on SM2?

If you have a dozen of accounts working in SM2, you can forget about aligning exactly the image with the link!

That's the nature of automation and we can only do our best to match keywords and the link itself.

Jon has said that you need to closely align the topic of the article with the topic of the pin.

He didn't say it has to match, exactly, but the topic must be in the same ballpark so-to-speak.

Remember, this is a numbers game!

You're going to need lots of traffic if you're going to even see results close to Jon's.

I myself would try to create articles and links closely related to the topic of the pin and open as many accounts as possible and take advantage of what SM2 can do with those accounts!

Thanks Jon!

Yes, that makes total sense. Post similar pins in around the same topic of the website's post.

I am beginning to create super targeted boards on my Pinterest account that are really close to the titles of my posts.

They're not exactly alike for each single pin, but at least it is in the same ballpark!

One last question,

When do you think a website is established in Pinterest?

Around how many pins are posted to the account, do you think is a well-established website?

So far, I have almost 2,000 pins pointing directly to my website. - Those are just my pins that I've posted and not saves from other people.

That's probably not even close, but around what number can I be looking forward to?



Social Multiplier 2 / How to Effectively Optimize Website for Pinterest
« on: November 29, 2016, 10:22:08 AM »

I was wondering how to optimize an article or post that is linked from an image posted on Pinterest.

Now I know the image on Pinterest linking to a specific post or article will not exactly match, but what is the best that I can do in order to keep them engaged?

Will they be looking for the same image? Certain images may feature text that may be a title or an idea of another post. What shall I do then?

I understand this is automation and the nature of it. You can't always match everything perfectly.

I just want to get better at leveraging traffic from Pinterest and learn more about conversion/optimization of this traffic.

Right now, I am in the Health field and I'm getting traffic to my website, slowly but surely.

Looking over my stats, I am getting one page hits and that's it. They're not exploring more of my website.

They're just coming and moving out once they see the post. I want to improve on that.

What would you recommend? How shall I optimize the article in order to keep them more engaged with the content of my site?

Is this how Pinterest traffic functions from now on?

Do I add "related blog post links" within the content to get them moving to another post or page?

Add more engaging images to the content?

What do you guys think?

Anything is appreciated!

Thanks for listening.
