26 thoughts on “How Do You Fix The ‘Your Pinterest Account Is Suspended’ Notice For Going Against the Spam Policy?”

  1. I had my Pinterest account suspended once before, also for suspected spam. Autobots that suspend for spam are often over sensitive, and I was able to get my account reactivated. Although it was a bit of a pain to do so, it was easier than a lot of social media platforms where it’s near impossible to talk to someone to get such bot decisions overturned

    1. Awesome insight.
      Autobots eh?😆
      If they are that sensitive, that is why it is futile to be mean or throw tantrums at Pinterest. We now know that getting your Pinterest account flagged may might not be your fault as people might press the flag button by mistake or it could just be someone trying to trouble you.
      Yes, to get to the human interaction is a pain – and more so with the measures taken for social isolation of those people who have to set actual eyes on your account.
      This experience has left us with one question – what is the cost-benefit ratio of automating some of these systems??
      Lovely of you to share your thoughts!

    1. Stephanie,
      No one wants to lose their work at all. 😎
      Also share so that other users, content creators, and businesses online could benefit too.
      We are doing a research.
      Pinterest does not seem to have an an official tool that you can use to download an archive of your Pinterest account. There few third-party services and apps that claim to download and/or back up your Pinterest boards, but they do not seem to do a satisfying job.
      Meanwhile, Pin away!

  2. I had my 1 account suspended by Pinterest. The platform doesn’t tolerate any kind of spam. So avoid any kind of policy violation. By the way, this is a very useful article.
    Thanks!

  3. I just had this happen about two weeks ago!! And the guy “helping” me had a bit of an attitude. We did a bit of back and forth, and when he dug his heels in, I said that I don’t pin spam and hadn’t even actually pinned anything that day- only added to Tailwind, so if he was willing to tell me specifically which pin was causing a problem, I would be more than happy to delete it, but if he couldn’t do so, I wanted my account reactivated within 24 hours before this cancellation began to affect my income, as that would be the point when I needed to seek outside help. It was reactivated in 12 hours, with a note that they couldn’t find a problematic pin. Uh huh. I don’t know what is triggering these suspensions, but Pinterest needs to work it out.

      What a feedback?
      Your experience echoes ours, plus other bloggers. Some have their accounts reactivated, others are still waiting.
      If it is the over sensitive bots, may be the lock down season played a role?? But also not all platforms online experienced a surge of traffic.
      We all look forward to have fabulous user experiences on these platforms. Don’t we?😊

  4. I have to say I live in fear of that happening:) I love Pinterest and my day is filled with it. I have already heard so many people that had their account suspended for many different reasons and by mistake. This post made me feel a little better about it – the fact that you can reach out to them and actually appeal this and it worked for you makes me feel so much better, knowing it. Thank you so much for sharing this experience, so important.

    1. Madi,
      Your feedback is spot on.
      Based on two sides of the coin:
      1. Looks like there are either bots or real people – who wake up with vengeance and spam because they may not have the grace to see someone progressively winning with Pinterest (or any other platform on the internet).
      2. But also, is there a Pinterest wizard who’s mastered it 100%? Just before you get comfy and master a routine, a schedule, an app, a solution, … Pinterest updates its algorithm, … the platform, and with it – all the guidelines and policies. But isn’t that a sign of growth?
      To win, you just have to stand out of the crowd – right?😊

  7. I have had my website blocked for more than 2 years, have written numerous mails but in Vain. Have lost all hope it will be unblocked again.I lost all my traffic.

  8. I got this same message over the weekend and never received any email from them. Thankfully after contacting them (even without being to give a reason why I thought this may have happened) they restored my account later in the same day.

    1. Hey Shelley,😊
      That means your account got restored from the suspension? At least you did not give up on Pinterest.
      Talk of a nightmare! During a similar incident for a client on Facebook ad account suspension that you can read here, what you are talking about is terrifying!
      When you get highly converting traffic from Pinterest, account suspension is the last thing you want to be experiencing.
      The secret is to get to the point of having enough traffic from organic (from Google) so that you will need not rely on Pinterest or other social platforms, and even most of the content marketing strategies flaunted on the internet.
      We love that you found the time to read this blog post!
