The Cheat Sheet to Pinterest Limits [Infographic]


An Infographic on the Limits on Pinterest

Like every social media, Pinterest has certain limits. Many of these Pinterest limits have been made official, while a few haven’t. To make it easy for you to stick inside these limits on Pinterest and avoid being branded a spammer, I have created this infographic. In this Pinterest limits infographic I have only covered usage and character limits. I haven’t written about image sizes here as I have already included them in the infographic The Pinterest Cheat Sheet to Image Sizes.

If you would like to continue using Pinterest smoothly by avoiding spam, penalties and suspensions, make sure you go through this cheat sheet  to Pinterest limits and stick within the guidelines set…

    definitely the comment limit – that’s ridiculous if you are an active user! I have been stopped from doing this before now 🙁

    • Hi Wendy!

      True! It would be nice it was higher. Hope they increase it in the future.


  • Hello @mittray:disqus As you know I love your work. Pinterest makes changes all the time so some of the info here might have changed after you created the infographic. 2 things: I have definitely commented more than a dozen at a time and I have seen accounts that have over 500 boards. See the image I attached.

    • Hi Anna,

      Thank you for your comment.

      You must be very lucky. 🙂 Most people get stopped at 3 or 6 comments.

      It’s actually still 500 boards. You can see it here

      That person must be one of the few people with more than 500 boards. I am sure they will let the rest of us create more boards in the future. The other limits might also be raised. But I can’t imagine having 500 boards. It will be very confusing. It will definitely take me a while to find the board to pin to.


  • 3 comments a day is so incredibly low. Now I know not to spend as much time on the platform 😉 But overall, most limits make sense. The engagement factor must improve if they want it to feel human, and intimate. 10 comments, so they know I’m a person, not someone who clicks a Pin button lol….Thanks Mitt 😉

    • Thank you for your comment Ryan!

      They use those limits to deal with spam. Hopefully they will increase the comment limit as it is one of the few ways to communicate on Pinterest.

      You’re welcome.
