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!🌻
My account and board have 300+ followers. Before middle Aug, for each new pins, I can get decades repins within 3 days after uploading on average. However, after that time, For each new pins I uploaded, I receive NO REPINS.
I changed my account to business account to see more details, and find that new pins have only single digit impressions even after for few days! (Which means they may only be viewed by me)
Hi, same problem. And a lot of people seem to have the same one. Facebook groups, Reddit, posts here - everyone complaining...
I've been sharing my story here:
You also have been hit at almost the same time as me, which makes me think there is something wrong with pin distribution, in the algorithm or something, like there could have been some kind of update that broke something... Nothing confirmed, support was no help so far.
I hope they fix it soon 😔
Has your account/case been escalated to Pinterest's specialist team for them to take a look? I was also told I wasn't marked as spam (5 times I believe), but then someone found I really was marked as spam. Never hurts to keep pushing 🙂
I run a blog at lesliewblog.com and Pinterest, as is with most other bloggers, is my #1 driver of traffic.
In June, my account was apparently marked as "spam" and I was told by Pinterest that they would unflag it, mark it as a good standing account, and that my analytics would go back to normal within 48 hours.
Unfortunately, that has not been the case. My analytics NEVER went back to normal. I am still seeing 0-1 impressions per pin and NO link clicks.
I have contacted Pinterest MULTIPLE times, including FOUR TIMES in the past MONTH alone, and I have either a) not received a response from them or b) received a response about creating "better pins."
I have created amazing pins lately - I have even had a Pinterest expert look over my pins and account and she said it should be getting traction like I used to, but it isn't.
Pinterest, what gives? When will you reinstate my account and unflag it as spam?
As I tell Pinterest in every email, this is my business and LIVELIHOOD that is being affected. We are already in some of the worst times, and to experience this on top of it is just not okay.
I need someone from Pinterest to respond to me and tell me that they will UNFLAG my account.
Can someone please help me in getting this to happen? I just don't know what to do anymore.
Thank you all SO much. Don't know where I'd be without the support of this community.
@lesliew1923 @PinterestGabby @PinterestJanice Hi there - I am sorry your having these problems. Firstly, you have definitely come to the right place for help, Secondly, know that most if not all of us have experienced similar problems in one form or another so we all understand. I have tagged 2 Community Managers Gabby and Janice who are both really great at getting you to the right person if you have your reference# from Support you may need to give to it to one of them so that they can help you - I realize its frustrating but hang tight it will get resolved. they may take a little time getting back to you but only because they are busy helping others in similar situations as your's. I really hope this will make you feel better and that you are being heard. Lisa😁
Hi Leslie, I can confirm there are no flags on your account. I verified this with a specialist just to make 10000% sure before I replied.
Moderator edit note: if your account has been cleared by support (i.e. they responded to your ticket and reported there are no issues or flags on your account) there is no further technical resolution that will result in the return of your distribution. From this point, the resolution is purely tactical, dependent on your pins and pinning strategy. There are recent reports on this topic of tactical strategies that are producing positive returns. We encourage you to continue sharing those wins with each other.
@PinterestJanice @lesliew1923 Hi there thanks for responding Janice it was really great of you to do it so quickly - I believe Leslie left another post in the Business Chat Pinterest WON'T Respond to My EMAILS & Account STILL Marked as SPAM After 2 MONTHS you may want to paste your response there as well. Lisa😁
Hi Karo, thanks for your patience with us. I also want to compliment you on the excellent documentation you provided to make sure we understood what you were seeing on your end. I can share with you that I verified with a specialist that there are no flags on your account. Please check in again and let us know if you begin to see changes / no change. Thanks for being here on the community, we appreciate having you around. 🙂
