Yesterday, we discovered an unpleasant surprise: Pinterest has flagged our website, 1001Pallets.com, and they removed all our pins from their Network: “Blacklisted” as they call it :(
It is now not possible to pin from our website or find 1001Pallets.com on Pinterest; our account was also suspended. We received emails from some of our fellow pinners that they are not able to repin our content anymore, and this is the reason why.
Some people were unhappy cause they saw a lot of our pictures at Pinterest, they reported our site, and Pinterest removed us from the platform. We never published, and we will never publish spam content or content that could go against the policy of Pinterest which are the same policy that we follow at 1001Pallets. We think that we are the victim of the Pinterest Mafia or Lazy scammers as explained in this article from Hibusiness: Website Marked As SPAM on Pinterest? The Mafia Is Doing It
That is why, we are seeking for help from you, our community and all our friends to get back on Pinterest! If you have a Pinterest account and have two minutes of your time, we would be very grateful for your help. Please follow the steps below by sending an email to Pinterest, and ask them to remove 1001pallets.com from their blacklist, to return all our pins back so that we can share our content which is also YOUR content with our community on Pinterest again.
