Creator/Sharer since 2011 - All my Pins Gone from Search. IP copiers took the search spots...

Hi Pinterest Creators Team,

I was one of the first users of Pinterest when Pinterest first started, and I have been pinning, sharing, and creating content regularly since then.

I really need your help with my account. 

At the end of April, almost all my pins vanished from Pinterest search, while all the content scrappers and copyright infringers using my images are dominating the Pinterest search results with my Intellectual Property.

This is so disheartening...

Now, thousands of my pins, taking years of my time, are all gone from search, and my impressions have completely tanked per the attached.

This is not a seasonal ebb and flows as the copy and paste responses from the help desk are indicating.

I keep reading, hearing, and seeing others get caught in this "Pinterest Spam Filter" - am I accidentally caught in it right now?  I use tailwind, which has had significant backlash lately in the food blogger community due to food bloggers thinking that the tailwind scheduling system is flagging them for spam... do I need to stop using tailwind?

Can you please help escalate this?  

Please help,


Jessica Randhawa

Hi @PinterestLucy @PinterestGabby  @PinterestAya ,

Can you please help? It has been 3 weeks since this started and is still ongoing.  Here is an example of an Original, Creative piece of content that vanished from Pinterest Search 3 weeks ago:  https://theforkedspoon.com/how-to-remove-hard-water-stains-from-glass/

All my pins pointing to my website vanished from searches like "hard water stains glass shower"... meanwhile here are all the images of me, my face, my hands, my house, and my bathroom from that post that I found in that same Pinterest Search pointing at SPAM websites per my DMCA notification 426640900:

Can you please please please help?

Why would Pinterest de-index my original images/pins from Pinterest Search, while at the same time allow the same images to point at SPAM websites in Pinterest Search to flourish?

I hope you have resolved this issue.

This has happened 3 times on my account. My account will be getting traffic and then poof overnight the traffic will disappear. My content will be deindexed from search and hundreds of spam pins will replace it. I still haven't figured out why this happens.

I have tried reported the spam pins but it doesn't do anything because they will be replaced by more spam pins.
