Pinterest Blocked Links / URL

If you encounter an issue where your posts to Pinterest are being blocked and you receive the following error message:

Message from Pinterest: {"message": "Sorry! We blocked this link because it's a redirector and may lead to inappropriate content.", "type": "api"}

Here are some important points to keep in mind:

- Pinterest does not allow most shortened links as they often redirect to other websites. To ensure your Pinterest posts are not blocked, it is recommended to use unshortened links.

- Pinterest blocks links that contain spammy, misleading, or inappropriate content. Make sure the links you attach to your Pins adhere to Pinterest's policies and community guidelines.

For more detailed information about Pinterest's policies and community guidelines regarding links attached to a Pin, please refer to the following page:
