    How do you add your affiliate links to pinterest?
    How do you add affiliate links to pinterest pins? I've been doing everything in this article How to Add Amazon Affiliate Links to Pinterest Pins #affiliates but pinterest says "This pin contains a link or text that we do not allow. We have blocked this pin for your safety." every time I try to create the pin. Do they not allow affiliate links now? I am using skimlinks to generate my affiliate links for merchants i'm not approved with yet, could that have something to do with it?

    I doubt they are going to allow links from skimlinks. They have been actively filtering affiliate links for quite some time. You "may" be able to get products on pinterest with a link back to YOUR site which can then contain affiliate links. That should do the trick. If you need data to fill out pages on your site, you can check out our api or wordpress plugin.

    They block url shorteners. Just link back to your blog and have the affiliate products/links there. One more step, but far more likely to work longer term.
