Pinterest is blocking ToughNickel.com

    I'm updating my Pinterest today.

    When I pin any hub from ToughNickle.com, I get the following error:

    "Sorry! We’ve blocked this link because it may need to spam."

    It used to work. I have hubs from ToughNickle that I pinned in the past, but I can't pin new ones and I can't change the URL to update anything that was moved into ToughNickle. I get that same error.

    Other niche sites seem to be okay. I pinned some today from other niche sites with no problem.

      I have a Hub on ToughNickel and posted a link to it from Pinterest this week. The link on Pinterest has been stripped from the image.

    Thanks for reporting.  Alison (the TN editor) created a ticket for me to ping them.  I've done it.  Hopefully it will be unblocked soon!

      Paul, I just tried it today to see if it was fixed. I'm still getting the error for anything in ToughNickle – "Sorry! We blocked this link because it may lead to spam."

    I have been telling Hubs about this for ages, and not got an answer yet.

    Oh boy. I'll ping them again.

    They probably have algos that spot excessive pinning and there is always encouragement in these forums to pin your own stuff like crazy. Which some people would call spamming.

    Looks like another self-inflicted injury.

    I tried going to the site toughnickle.com as I had never heard of it but my browser couldn't find it.

      That's a common misspelling for nickel, but you need to spell it right – "el" not "le".
