Back in the days, Pinterest blocked my site and mark as spam.
I was so disappointed… And curious to know ‘How to unblock pins on Pinterest?’
Finally, I got the solution…
And In this guide, I’m going to reveal what I did to unblock my site on Pinterest in less than 7 days.
Let’s face it…
A LITTLE STORY OF MINE
On 3 August 2019, When I logged in to my Pinterest account and clicked one of my pins, here what I got…
My domain was completely blocked from Pinterest. And all pins on my account were redirected to an error message shown above…
All my Pinterest traffic went to zero. It was totally new to me.
After further investigation, I found an email from Pinterest saying, “We wanted to let you know we’ve blocked your website on Pinterest because of some activity that goes against our spam policies.”
Now let’s talk about what I exactly did to unblock my site.
THIS IS HOW PINTEREST UNBLOCKED MY SITE IN 7 DAYS
STEP 1. CONTACT PINTEREST HELP
If Pinterest has marked your site as spam then the first step is to contact Pinterest help.
Many people say that Pinterest’s help is helpless.
But to be honest, it helps. All you need is ‘patience’
Let me show you how to deal with it…
The only way to unblock your site from Pinterest is ‘contact Pinterest help’
So this was the exact message I shot to Pinterest.
You can also write something like this…
Hello, Pinterest support,
I’m [Shailesh Shakya]. Thanks for creating such an awesome platform. I love using Pinterest daily.
But something wrong happened to me on [03/08/2019].
And I was unable to create pins and Repins from my verified domain [https://beginnersblog.org].
Whenever I tried to create a pin, I got an error message saying “sorry! This request can’t be completed” and also when I clicked on existing pins I got the error message saying “sorry! This pin is blocked, this request can’t be completed”
To be honest, my domain doesn’t hold any spam or inappropriate content.
I’m just adding value to this platform like others. And mistakenly, my domain is reported as spam. I think some of my competitors have reported my domain as spam to kick me out of the competition.
But I’m sure, I haven’t done anything wrong.
Therefore I request you to unblock my site. I shall be grateful to you for this kind act.
NOTE: – If you copy the above message then make sure you replace name, date, and URL with your name, date, and URL.
After that, I got an auto-reply something like this…
STEP 2. WAIT FOR TWO DAYS
Once you’ve contacted, it’s time to wait for at least two days.
Usually, Pinterest unlocks good sites within 24 hours. But sometimes, it may take a week or more.
So you need to wait for two days and contact Pinterest again.
My second message to Pinterest
But it’s my bad luck again I got a reply from Pinterest like this…
And it disappointed me a lot. But I didn’t give up.
STEP 3. CONTACT AGAIN
I contacted Pinterest many times.
And finally, I got this reply…
On 9 August 2019, Pinterest unblocked my site completely.
If you follow these steps, you’ll get your domain unbanned from Pinterest.
Now let me tell you…
