Thanks for sharing. My question is what does Pinterest consider Authoritative and Recognizable? Pinterest seems to be moving towards pushing up pins from those who generate content every week or more, which for my clients isn't feasible. They are business owners earning multiple 6 figures and are scaling their business. Although they create content it may not be every week, it may be every month. And since repinning is def not on the menu, the "content that already exist" demotion is very relevant to my business.
For example, if a Pinterest for Business user host a podcast, they may have the video, summary and full text of a podcast on one page. From this, using the same URL for each of those 3 pieces of content would push them all lower in the feed. Therefore seen by less people.
I'd love to get straight answers instead of trying to figure it out from guessing, and from other people guessing, lol! Especially since I'm trying to bring more black female business owners onto the platform to use Pinterest as a way to scale their businesses. Knowing this will help me(and others) decide how I should approach my use of the platform for my clients or if shifting into a different direction entirely is a better option for their marketing plan.
@CraftsAttic thanks for sharing that! Curious where you captured that screenshot? Would love to reference the page and share with the team responsible for the content. @angellawery, great question, totally hear what you're saying. Let me mull over this and discuss internally to see if I have a more clear-cut answer for ya. 🙂
@PinterestGabby Hi 🙂 Your welcome for the share, I thought it was great info as well.
I found that on Pinterest Academy in the testing section - the test was called "The Basics" the sub topic was "Community Guidelines". About halfway down the page of community guidelines you will see this -
"Open the sections below to learn more about our policies on misdirected Pins and mimicking UI."
I just opened both sections and took a screenshot and posted it here.
I love Pinterest Academy, so much great info there.
