Social Multiplier 2 / Re: Promoting Other Customers...
« on: April 26, 2017, 02:40:34 PM »
If you're handling the social media for another company it's best to use custom images -- even great stock photos will do. Remember that it's their reputation on the line, not yours, and you need to be careful to protect their brand. Most brick and mortar businesses would prefer to stay as "white hat" as possible, even if what's being done (keyword images) is 100% legal according to the Pinterest User Agreement.

I would play it conservatively for clients.

But remember, I'm not an attorney and this does not constitute legal advice.

ClickBank tracks it for you. Just look at the reports.

Close SM2 and delete the old database. It's located here:


Run SM2 again and it will create a new database. And yeah, you're starting all over as far as having to put in account and job details, but SM2 will rebuild the followers/following/etc from your existing accounts automatically. Just be patient and don't shut it down until it's finished. Depending on how quickly Pinterest is running when you do it the rebuild may take a while.

Did you keep a backup? If not there's nothing to do but start over. You should never force the app to quit while it's compacting. Your database is destroyed I'm afraid.

I've been looking over our data since this change has been made by Pinterest and it looks like Pinterest adjusted their algorithm at the same time so followers don't matter as much. We're generating traffic from accounts that are less than 2 weeks old despite them having only a handful of followers (less than 30). It's not a lot of traffic, but then accounts that young never produced a lot of traffic. I'll report back once the accounts are 30-60 days old. That's when I'll know for sure what the impact is.

Social Multiplier 2 / Re: Subdomain guildelines for redirect
« on: April 23, 2017, 05:50:20 AM »
What I've said is that you shouldn't use a bunch of subdomains as redirects to the primary domain. Pinterest usually still sees those as part of the site "site" and will block the entire domain. But if you're just pinning to a subdomain that actually contains the content that shouldn't be an issue.

You can FTP the files as well. You don't have to use File Manager. So just FTP the .htaccess and index.php files shown in the walkthrough.

You can't promote the direct link (ClickBank uses 301 redirects that will get blocked by Pinterest). You can use a landing page or a redirect domain to send people to your direct link. Just avoid the "make money" products -- Pinterest will block those regardless.

If that kind of redirection is using a 301 redirect then it's not going to work. Pinterest blocks 301 redirects. The redirection scripts use javascript, which Pinterest does not block.

Yeah, looks like it was mostly a bug on Pinterest's part that was causing these bogus errors to occur.

Social Multiplier 2 / Re: Can SM2 post into Groups Boards ?
« on: April 21, 2017, 03:48:32 PM »
Any group boards you're approved to post in should appear in the drop-down list of boards in a pin job. SM2 doesn't know the difference between your boards and any group boards you're approved in.

But my experience from some extensive testing is that group boards do not get you nearly as much traffic as pinning to your own boards alone.

We have some preliminary evidence that it may not matter if it doesn't pass. We have a brand new account that's generated some traffic in its early days despite having zero followers. It's early yet, and we're monitoring the situation, but if the traffic continues to grow then Pinterest has likely modified their algorithm to not require as many followers when putting pins in the search results. Could be very good news for us all.
