First of all, so glad to see this Business Community coming to life! Excited to see what future holds for all of us!
Now, onto the question! Has anyone experience a SUDDEN and SHARP drop in reach. I'm talking 70-80% in a day.
And it keeps going down! Just in a day I disappeared of all search results for keywords that I have been ranking for.
The traffic is consistently down on all pins and all pages at a very similar percentage:
And the pins
Actually something like this has happened before and customer support has confirmed that I was caught by the spam filters accidentally. It then got fixed. Here is how it looked:
It took around a week to bounce right back up after I've been unflagged by the system. Now, I'm being told it's natural ebbs and flows:
Now, has anyone experienced something similar to that? How did you bounce back? I publish new content consistenly and have been publishing more. I also upload videos but their reach has significantly dropped down too (by around the same percentage).
I have now stopped running ads because I feel like my reach is being limited by quite a bit. It doesn't seem to make sense to try to grow brand awareness.
I would love to go back up and continue growing with the community! I would highly appreciate if any of you have any advice!
Love and kisses!🌻
@typicallytopical @imfierceafter40 @Kontentsia Hi there your right about it happening to a lot of people I heard it from a lot of people here in the community. I haven't had any problems with the videos...yet but I am starting to get a little worried because I like doing videos I am kind of holding my breath when I publish now 🤔
Hope you are doing well haven't seen you in the community for a while....
Thank you! @typicallytopical
- Just followed you now from my Pinterest!
- Horrible, from 4.1 million, I'm down to 3 million is the ten days they dropped my engagement.
- They emailed last night saying that they "SAFE-LISTED' my URL and that it should go back to good engagement now. They are saying this kind of a "manual fix". However, I have not seen a change in engagement. Does it take days for engagement to go back from your experience? Or should engagement go up ASAP when this manual fix happens?
I'm not seeing any spike in spite of this fix they said they did. Do you advise me to wait a few days or to email them again to tell them nothing has changed in spite of this safelisting?
Thank you so much for all your advice, I won't get to this point with the pinterest team if not of you!
Have you received a reply form them yet?
they kept telling me there's nothing wrong with my account but there is defintely a bug in my URL and looks like they blocked it
@typicallytopical They said the "safelisted" my URL as manual fix and that engagement should be back soon. That was 15 hours ago, still no change. Should i write them again or does this take a few days to improve? I'm thinking whatever did they is not really working. None of my pins are getting engagements. still at 2-5 impressions .
@imfierceafter40 The first time I had a 'fix', I was told to wait 7-10 days to see an improvement. I waited those 10 days but was still seeing single figure impressions.
I emailed them again, and my account was then sent to a specialist team. I was told 'they did something on the back-end to get my impressions back as fast as possible'. I saw my impressions practically return to normal within 24 hours after that 2nd fix!
Did they give you a specific timeframe? If not, I'd wait until 24 hours are up (just to make sure), and then email them back again.
Hope that helps 🙂
