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 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11 long ago.
I wish I had paid attention to it earlier.
You could try that too.

Hi All. It has been technically four years since I have joined HubPages. I was rather moved from Squidoo to HubPages when the former shut shop. But I could not adapt myself to the changed environment in HubPages and so did not bother republishing any of my Squidoo lenses for a long time. I lost...

I wanted to give folks an update since there were a number of questions regarding Google at the end of September. We found a significant regressions that in early September let a large number of old profiles into Google's index (Millions of pages became indexable). We put out a fix as...

Aside from sharing my article links on Facebook, what are some tried and true ways of increasing traffic/reads to our articles? I'm new; 3 weeks in, have 10 published and featured articles so far. I'm trying to figure out what the number on my profile photo means exactly. I know...

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...

Asking here because I got a note from an editor to fix a few things in an article, but when I clicked reply, I got a Mailer Daemon reply. So here is my question: Why are Hubpages internal links no longer allowed? I was asked to remove all of them, when it the past they were allowed. I am now...
