Just lost an account after 3 weeks which PT will not reactivate.
- Pinning ~150/day
- Pinning duration : 15-20hrs/day
- 100% URL
1st Msg from PT :
"We wanted to let you know we suspended your Pinterest account because of some activity that goes against our spam policies.
On Pinterest, spam includes saving lots of unwanted or repetitive stuff, trying to game our systems, or posting fraudulent, deceptive or unsolicited commercial messages. We block spam like this because it creates a bad experience for other people on Pinterest.
If you think we made a mistake, please let us know within the next 7 days."
"We decided not to reactivate your account because most of your Pins go against our spam policy. You won't be able to access your Pins or messages, or sign up for a new account."
I think the issue is "saving lots of unwanted or repetitive stuff, trying to game our systems"
I'll reduce the # of hours, and URL % going forward, but i think will be great if Jon can consider the following 2 feature which I believe will be needed in the long run with PT admin tightening on the review.
1. Vary the # of pins between days, e.g Min/Max # of pins per Day
2. Vary the time interval between pins, e.g Min/Max # of mins between pins
For that matter, we could probably just implement #2 and if the Min/Max range is wide enough, #1 is automatically taken care of and wouldn't be an issue.
Of course, safeguards such as, e.g pins to be at least, e.g 3 mins apart and stopping after reaching target/day, etc are probably already in placed.
I'm monitoring traffic stats to see if the website has been blocked by PT.
