Pinterest Post Failed to Publish

We have listed down the reasons for the most common errors that you face while publishing content to the Pinterest and start scratching your head why the content did not appear, but with errors such as:

  1. Sorry! We blocked this link because it may lead to spam.
  2. Authentication failed
  3. Sorry! This site doesn't allow you to save Pins.
  4. Sorry! We blocked this link because it may lead to inappropriate content.
  5. Sorry we could not fetch the image.
  6. Sorry! Something went wrong on our end. Please try again

To solve this issue, we will address them one-by-one so that you do not face this issue anymore.

Authentication Failed or Authorization Connection Problem:

If you are getting the authentication failed message while publishing content to the Pinterest or while connecting your account. To solve this:

1
Authentication Failed: You may have changed your account login credentials, but have not reconnected the Pinterest account to the ContentStudio and tried publishing content to your social channel. In this case, you will be getting the authentication failed as we will need a new access token to make a request for Pinterest.

Otherwise, the publication will be failed.

2
Authorization Problem: If you are trying to connect the Pinterest account, but are getting the Authorization error message. This means, that your Pinterest account has a different language.

To solve this, you will have to change the language for the account to the English.

After that try connecting your account and it would work seamlessly.

Link Blocked or Inappropriate Content:

By default, Pinterest has blocked the URL shorteners such as bit.ly, goo.gl and others. If you are sharing the content that contains this type of URL, your content will not be shared on a Pinterest and you will be receiving one of the following messages.

  1. Sorry! We blocked this link because it may lead to spam.
  2. Sorry! This site doesn't allow you to save Pins.
  3. Sorry! We blocked this link because it may lead to inappropriate content.
  4. Sorry! Something went wrong on our end. Please try again

To solve this issue, there are two options.

1
Links without URL Shortener: Share your content to Pinterest without a URL Shortener. This will fix the issue that you faced above. However, if you are still getting the error, it means Pinterest has blocked your website. 

You may need to send an appeal to whitelist your domain for the interest. You can find more information from this link.

2
Custom Domains: You can use a third-party service such as   Replug for the links tracking. It allows you to add your custom domain for the link shortening and have direct integration with ContentStudio. By doing that, you will have your branded links and can manage their reputation by what type of links you have created.

Other Messages:

If you happen to get messages like:

  1. Sorry we could not fetch the image.
  2. Sorry! Something went wrong on our end. Please try again

The image that you are sharing is not downloadable on the Pinterest side, that's why the post failed to publish. Or, there is some an internal error that was generated on the Pinterest side while performing a post due to which post failed to publish.

These all are the most common errors that can happen while sharing your content to Pinterest. Hopefully, this guide may help you in sharing content to Pinterest.
