Question about pinning hubs on Pinterest

    I managed to pin one of my hubs on Pinterest a while ago, but today when I tried to pin another I got this message: "Sorry! We blocked this link because it may lead to spam."  Could it be because this hub is on kindredbond and not Hubpages? Has this happened to anyone else?  I'm newish here, so I'm still not sure of myself and would appreciate any help. Thanks.

      Saw the same thing on a niche site a few days ago.
      I liked the Hub there and tried to Pin it but no go.
      Try contacting Pinterest and telling them what happened.
      It may just be a mistake.

        Thanks for your help.  I think it's probably because I repined an article.  If I see that this occurs again with a new hub I'll contact them.

    Nice work! Pinterest is a great way to get traffic. I posted my pictures to Pinterest a while back and still see decent traffic from there. Is there a chance that you recently posted that link already? I accidentally did a frequency repeat and got that message once.

      Thanks! That is probably the reason.  I wanted to repin after the hub was moved to the niche site. I'm glad that you're seeing decent traffic from there.  So far I'm not getting much from anywhere, but I'm still new at this and need to work harder at it.  Thanks for your help.

    I tried to Stumble a hub as well and it would not go.

      I haven't tried Stumbling, any advice?

    No, there is more to it than that. it just happened to me too! I think since hubs have changed from hubpages to our other new sites something is making them look like spam. I think this is a job for superman.....er sorry, Hubstaff! LOL!

      LOL! I hope not, that would be bad news, and I'm just getting started.

    I have never had any luck with pintres. Unlike flipboard where I had over 3k views on one of my personal blog posts.

      I'm going to try Flipboard too, thanks for that.

    So, if we follow fellow Hubbers on Pinterest it should get them an even larger following, right?
