I created a new hub today. When I went to pin it on Pinterest I got this message.
We've blocked this source because it may be spam or other inappropriate content. More Info
Does anyone know what is going on with this?
Did you pin it more than once or do you routinely pin more than once from your subdomain? If so they may be flagging you as a potential spammer. What is the hub about? perhaps it's on a topic that they are suspicious of?
Not sure why you would get that message. I do know awhile back, there was a time when Pinterest was banning everything by HubPages and members of HP staff actually met with Pinterest staff to discuss ways to combat spam etc. and then hubs were allowed to be pinned again.
I sincerely hope this doesn't become a problem because Pinterest drives the majority of my traffic. I checked a couple of mine and am not receiving this message.
I got the message the first time I tried so I thought I did something wrong and tried again, same message again. It is a recipe.
1. For Pinterest it must have a photo.
2. Was it still in QAP when you tried to post it? Most articles these days must pass QAP before it becomes featured.
I had just hit the publish and at the top it shows pin, tweet and I think facebook so I clicked the pin. That was when I got the message. If we're not suppose to do that until it passes QAP than they need to take that off the top because I don't think they say that in the message at the top. Maybe they did and I missed it.
Did you include a referral tracker with your link? Doing that does indeed get Pinterest highly agitated.
If you did include a tracker, just get rid of it. Posting the link without the tracker should immediately calm Pinterest down.
My hub has pinned now. I had to change my password. I did find a pin in one of my boards that I did not pin on my board there may be more pins that I didn't pin but this was a small board and I just happen to see this unexplained pin. I don't know what is going on with Pinterest.
Things like this are odd. Happened to me when I posted a poem on my blog. Afterwards just like usual I posted it to Google +. The group I posted to it got a red warning message saying my link was spam. It got cleared up but it was so very odd. That also happened to me only once and never again with my blog. I post on Fanbox there I wanted to pass my last post to Facebook. I put in the link and a message came on asking me to remove the foul language and/or pornography. Huh? I was posting a poem I had written and a normal rock video with just the lyrics and no bad language or porn. So I have experienced something like that before and I don't have any idea what it could be. Perhaps misguided signals...I will keep you problem in mind just in case it also happens to me.
On my main page on Pinterest I have pointed to my HubPages profile page via a link using an URL shortener. Clicking on that link I get the message "Sorry, we've blocked this link because it may lead to spam, nudity or other inappropriate stuff." It's probably the URL shortener that arouses suspicions.
Maybe it is. It's very strange and you don't know how much I hate changing my passwords like they want me to do. I have also noticed some of the hubs I have posted are showing photos in a small frame with Hubpages showing on each side of the photo I don't have any photos like that on my hubs.

Do you still put a tracker link in your hubs?In all of my hubs I have a link in a blue box with a referral tracker with a heading offering to sign up with Hubpages to write articles. Is this still a good idea for new hubs since all the changes?

I've tried to find the answer to my question without success. I had the correct link the last time I looked, but the links I had go to indiscriminate sites. Can someone please let me know what the URL is for the link that my readers would use to go to the HubPages sign up page? Sorry, but I'm a...

I have a couple of people who want to join hubpages. I went to my profile page and scrolled to the bottom. I clicked referral tracker and copied and pasted it onto my profile page, with the message, "If you'd like to join HP, click here."Is that right? So if someone clicks that link, I'll...

I've read and reead the hubs on URLs, RSS & Backlinks. I thought I was fairly literate in computers, trust me, I'm stumped.Adding RSS - okay so I want to add an RSS capsule to my hub. I read that you can add your profile URL as an rss but it tells me NO! I don't understand backlinks...

I spent some time searching and couldn't find the answer so...Does including a referral tracker destroy the value of the backlink? If so, is using a referral tracker for the interlinking between your hubs greater than the value the backlink will provide?

Hard to believe I still can't figure out how to do that!
