My Issue No. 274289
My Account whole pins have been de-indexed completely from Pinterest search suddenly. My account facing spam/bug like issue where my whole pins have been deindexed all at once. Even if I search for my username in Pinterest search - result is only spam/stolen pins. Not a single pin pointing to my site.
This had happened with me in June and I had to struggle explaining the issue to the support constantly and after 3-4months of constant emailing and convincing them that my account is facing issue. The issue was fixed in November. Now again the same exact issue has happened.
I am constantly emailing support from last 12 days and I am getting NO reply + even if I get a reply its like - I am sending this issue to internal team and then the ticket is getting closed.
This is happening constantly from the last 12 days. I am afraid that this might again take 3-4months of constant emailing to get the issue fixed?
I am going to ask @PinterestGabby @Anonymous @Anonymous @pinterestjanice or anyone from Pinterest team to kindly look into my issue and get my issue fixed instantly this time, without having me to wait again for 3-4months! I would be thankful
@modernfiftytv Just give it 3-6 months.
In the meantime, fix your image alts (alt="[insert description with SEO Keywords]"), titles, internal links (did you know that all your Pinterest pins are a backlink to your site, even though they are nofollow?), use the "Search related to" under Google results, etc.
Looking back, Pinterest just made us all lazy - we could pin 10 images and get 100s-1000s of visitors. But, I think that was always the plan - reel us in and when we're dependent on them for traffic, boom... switch the algo.
I haven't pin a single thing since December 20 and all of a sudden Pinterest is sending me pin suggestions for my boards, my views are improving (still low). Prior to this (Nov, Dec) I wasn't getting any of that.
When I resume pinning, I'll just pin 2 good images after I've posted a new article and walk away - the scales have cleared from my eyes.
Bottom line is, diversify.
Plot twist, what if customer service is 1 person with multiple monikers? I mean, they all sound the same to all of us.
@Ameliabeg01, I can bet you, you won't get a response from those you tagged.
They just pack us all in here, ‘award’ a badge here and there, as if we're doing anything special.
“wohooo, I got a ‘10 kudos badge’, I'm going places ma”
Hey, I have an idea... Let's all upload screenshots of the canned reply we got, at least it'll be fun.
What do you think?
I've been trying to fix the same issue for an year. But nothing is working for me. It seems like Pinterest don't want many creators. They're happy with a few creators. For that reason, I'll stop using Pinterest. I'll concentrate on Google SEO. Because I'm getting a good amount of traffic from Google Search Engine. Google is not a hypocrite like Pinterest.
Whoever facing this issue, don't waste your time on Pinterest anymore.
