Today, I'm unable to pin from ToughNickel to Pinterest. I get that message about spam.

Got it. I tried to pin as well and it was blocked. What do you think my co-workers would think about that pin??
I had the same problem. it mentioned the word 'spam'
Thank you for letting us know. I'll send it to Pinterest today. It usually takes a few days for them to fix it.
Pinterest have pretty strict spam filters and sometimes the wrong website gets caught by it. I think they penalise websites that don't have original content or don't attribute the source of the content.
Not that problem here, all my material and images are my own.
Ok then it's clearly a mistake on their part.
It's not a mistake, it's Pinterest protecting itself from spammers.
The whole idea of Pinterest is that people are supposed to be sharing things they think are special, things that they really like.
Unfortunately, writers too often think it's a place to plug their own work regardless of whether it's special or not. Every time Pinterest gets flooded with pins from one particular site, they suspect that someone is trying to self-promote rather than use Pinterest for its true purpose, and they react by blocking that site. So it's not Pinterest who made the mistake, it's probably a few over-zealous Hubbers over-promoting themselves that are the culprits!
I suspect this is absolutely what is happening and sadly, those of us who don't over promote and use Pinterest get penalized for those who abuse the system. I'm pretty sure this is why the niche sites were having issues as well.
I am now able to access my Pinterest Account. What a relief!
I was having DNS problem. In fact, they had advised me to configure alternate DNS Servers such as 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199 long ago.
I wish I had paid attention to it earlier.
You could try that too.

When our hubs were once chosen, we had a way to see what was supposed to be fixed before it appeared on a niche site. Now I don't see anything like that. It could be me, but there was a way to see what they wanted added or deleted.It's very frustrating. Yesterday I was told my hub on Zeus, the...

Besides Facebook and Linkedin, where do you post links to your articles?I post mine on Alignable, SheWrites and Levo. That this might be a good resource for everyone to find new places to post your links.

My total current view count for "1 day" is less than the amount I usually get on a good day for my 2 top performers. I have 85 hubs, 17 on niche sites. Something is not right. Anyone else?

I've been away for a while so forgive me if I am bringing up something already discussed. but ... I have a huge problem with Pinterest - there is a huge problem with themn and copyright issues - their terms and conditions state they have the right to sell on any images that appear on their...
