I added randomized pinning/following, but will be very surprised if that makes one iota of difference as far as suspensions are concerned.

I'm convinced that suspensions come from reviews triggered by user spam reports (often because the keywords were poorly chosen for the job or Pinterest doesn't have enough pins that actually match the keywords and so shows unrelated stuff) and by a few automated processes that happen very early on in the account. And I believe sites blocks come from either pinning too fast to one domain or also from users reporting the pin/site as spam and it being reviewed. I don't think the timing of the pins have much to do with anything.

If I'm wrong please post back and tell me, but don't be surprised if varying pinning has nothing to do with it.

Good update Jon. But like you, I'm more concerned/afraid about the irrelevant pins, and I think just like you, that people will notice....and some people may issue spam reports.  This issue also could be worse in certain niches, less in others. If you can improve SM2 in this regard to be more "smart", this would be a most, most welcome improvement.

Try using quotes around your keywords in the pin jobs to ensure more accurate results. But I warn you --- if Pinterest has zero results for the quoted keywords it will return the results for the unquoted keywords. Nothing SM2 can do about what Pinterest sends back.

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!

Same here. Using quotes results in error and no images found. I'm on version 2.131.

This was fixed (for sure!) in the last update.
