Is anyone having a problem with pinterest?

    On my newest hubs the little P for pinterest is not showing on the photos. Also sometime the pinterest icon on the left works, and sometimes it doesn't.

      Hi Catherine, yes I am having trouble with the Pinterest on the left of the page too. I have gone to google chrome extensions and added the pinterest button to my tab line at the top. easy way to add my page.

        Everything seems to work fine except for my hubs in the last 1-2 weeks. Nothing has changed on my end. The pinterst P does not appear on the pictures in the hub. That can't be because of anything I m doing.

      Is anybody who has published a hub in the last 4 or 5 days having this problem--no Pinterest P on the photos. It is there on my older hubs.

      I spent a half hour going through my hubs and I think I have found the answer.  It appears that hubs with the hubpages.com url do not have the P icons on the picture. I did about 5 new hubs in the past week and most of them have not been moved to the niche site yet. 

      This is either a bug or a new policy. Because some of my hubpags.com hubs used to have the P icon on the photos. I used that icon to move my pictures to Pinterest.

        That's strange. I still have some hubs on hubpages.com and they have the P icon on the images just as with my niche hubs. I wonder why yours is different. Are you sure you're not just comparing newly published hubs that haven't been featured yet?

        I have one I just published yesterday, featured on hubpages.com. That has the P icon as well.

          Yes I'm sure. I looked at a hub from two years ago that is a hubpages.com hub. No Ps on the photos. My newer hubs that got moved to niche sites have the p's, the ones not moved, do not.

          How could this only be affecting me?

            The plot thickens!  I just checked an old hub from 2010 that's still on hubpages.com and that, too, has the P icon.

            What browser are you using? Can you test with another browser? I just tested with Firefox and Safari and both show the P icon.

              I'm using Chrome. I'll try a different browser and get back to you.  Everything  used to be fine. It is only recently. I can't say just when because sometime I don't move pictures to Pinterest right away. I wait for the hub to be moved to a niche sit.

              Glen: You are right. The P icon shows up with Firefox. Thanks.

              So that is the answer, but it is still a bug. Because it used to work with chrome and it should work with chrome.

              Have you tried it with Chrome?

                Just tried it. It works with Chrome too.

                    I would guess that one of your extensions is interfering. Try disabling your added extensions.

          Even with firefox I ha a problem. I was putting the pictures from my latest hub onto pinterest. They all uploaded fine. The last one would not work I finally posted in manually.  The P icon on the picture would not upload the picture to Pinterest.

    So, I don't know about yours but mine is acting like it doesn't work but then when I get to Pinterest it is there.

    Yep, the past couple days it has been spinning like crazy when I go to put an image in. Then I look and it is there although the silly screen is still spinning.

    My two cents

    #1 - I see the P and the F for facebook appearing on your images Catherine. I also see them on my images posted this week. I'm using Firefox and checked with IE but I never use Chrome so it seems to be Chrome specific?

    #2 - Other than to boost the results and following of your pinterest account is it still good practice in 2018 to be reproducing images from articles you want to gain traffic to? I've found that, since Google updated how their image results work some years ago, the traffic images bring has an extreme bounce rate that seems to impact the overall quality metrics of my sites.

    So much so in fact that I added a directive in my robots.txt file on some sites instructing Google and other search engines NOT to index my images. This had several beneficial results.

    - Much less stealing of my images, many seem to find them in search when they plan to re-use them
    - Much improved bounce rate metrics
    - Fewer duplicate content issues, yes, images can be duplicate too
    - My Google dashboard now only reports actual web visit metrics, not a mix of image/web traffic

    Maybe this issue is a blessing in disguise, I'd love to hear if others have stopped trying to share images and have had similar positive effects.

      That's a really interesting finding, thanks for sharing.   In the past, some Hubbers have had great success creating MFP (Made for Pinterest) images - that is, images designed specifically to tempt readers to share them on Pinterest.

      I confess I've always been too lazy to create the images, but by the sound of your findings, maybe it's just as well...

        It really depends on the performance of the traffic generated I guess. Perhaps in some niches images work well, in mine they certainly didn't.

          If you look at the article, the secret of the MFP images is that they have text relating to the subject of the article.  Therefore, I guess, if someone clicks on the image it MAY be because they're interested in the topic, not just the photo, and therefore the bounce rate is less.

          I can't comment because I've never used them.  I'd love to know how some of our MFP enthusiasts have found it.
