Hello @discoverwatercolorpng (David),
This is a common occurrence. Individuals purchase a website previously used on Pinterest only to find that the previous owner was banned for spamming.
While claiming the site on Pinterest as yours may be an issue, even if you did claim it, your use on Pinterest would be restricted. i did find a pin from your website and Pinterest does not allow a click thru. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/451556300135634281
Here your your options.
1). Contact Pinterest support and tell them that you newly acquired this domain and are not a spammer. Ask them to lift the ban. This could take a week to several months.
2). Acquire a different domain name and use it for the website. This will solve your problem immediately. You can still redirect the discoverwatercolorpng to that site so previous links and traffic will still come to the new url.
3). Contact the seller of the site and ask for remedy. Clearly you can not use the site on Pinterest at this time. They might also assist in changing the url.
These are three options that will solve your issue.
Hi there! I have a similar problem but was unable to choose a board while posting my query (a bug i guess) so I decided to post it here. Sorry if it's inconvenient.
I want to integrate my site with my pintrest account. I basically want to get access to analytics the pins I publish on my site. I've gone through this whole article ( https://help.pinterest.com/en/business/article/claim-your-website) but still can't figure it out. I ain't the most tech-savvy guy. Can someone pls help me out?
Here's the link to the site I want to integrate if needed.
