Pinterest Changes, News and Tips
Below is a running list of tips and tricks for Pinterest bloggers who want more blog traffic from Pinterest. These are the Pinterest changes in relation to the latest Pinterest update as well as tips to troubleshoot why your traffic from Pinterest is down.
Personal Boards Now More Powerful Than Group Boards
This is not a shock to many Pinterest Marketers, but now our own ‘personal boards’ are MUCH more powerful than Group Boards are.
The “trick” is knowing how to NAME your boards for maximum results.
Here’s how I name my Pinterest boards.
Pinterest Analytics Glitches Continue in August

MAJOR Pinterest Glitch Today (7/24/2018)
Many Pinterest marketers woke up today to find that their pins leading to their site were all being blocked and marked as spam. While this many not be an error for ALL affected, it’s definitely worth contacting Pinterest because it appears MANY accounts were mistakenly marked as spam.
If the pins to your site are being blocked by Pinterest, they will show a message like this when you click the pin:
How To Contact Pinterest:
Try either, or BOTH, or these contact options:
1 – Go to: https://help.pinterest.com/en/contact, select “Business Account” from dropdown” then choose “Pinterest blocked my site” and fill out the form (remember, be professional! It’s the whole “more flies with honey” think, ok?)
This form is very likely to kick back an automated “canned response”, but totally worth trying.
2 – And/Or send an email to creators-support @ pinterest.com – again, be respectful… even if you feeling like putting your fist through your computer monitor 😉
Also worth a shot: if you use Tailwind – reach out to their Team… they might be able to help you (no guarantees, but they are a helpful bunch!) – and/or, if you are part of an advertising group running ads on your site from companies such as MediaVine or AdThrive, you might get some help by reaching out to them (again, no guarantees).
I have no doubt this is a business “nightmare” if Pinterest is blocking YOUR pin links, but try and be patient and calm. I have NO doubt Pinterest is being bombarded with (angry) emails today so hang in there… and try to NOT be just another “angry” email.
