Pin Impressions Dropped to Single Digits In May

Hi! I'm Alex.

Before May I had over 200k monthly viewers and was averaging about 1k to 2k impressions per pin.

Then, around May 1st, my impressions per pin suddenly dropped to single digits. We're talking like 5 impressions per pin.

In other communities (and even in this one) other people seem to have had major drops in impressions as well around the same time.

What's going on? Was there an update that changed something? Why have my impressions per pin suddenly dropped to single digits for seemingly no reason and at random?

Can the Pinterest employees shed any light on the situation? Thanks!

Heya, Alex! Welcome to the community. 🙂 

I shared an update on this thread [looks like you commented on it, too!] and will either share updates there or start a new post to keep everyone looped in. LMK if you have any questions!

Hey @TheProductiveYou I've been getting the same thing since around April 30th! I was used to seeing around 5-15k impressions per pin, good saves, good click throughs and now every pin I push out sees around 2-5 impressions, same as you. Dropped from 3.5 Million Monthly Viewers to 2.1 Million in 2 weeks. Really hoping for that fix soon!

That's absolutely nuts! What niche are you in?

@TheProductiveYou Lifestyle - so not really a niche per se! We were doing really well before this hit. Have your pin stat impressions gone back to normal? I know Gabby said she was going to post an update, but don't know if the engineering team have managed to push a fix yet.
