Through different forums, many Internet users have expressed their discomfort at the high flow of Pinterest images that appear in a Google image search.

It should be noted that Pinterest is not a negative website, indeed, with more than 442 million users around the world, the image collections platform is an excellent option to share creations or seek inspiration; However, the problem is that the page does not allow to see the images in full size if the person is not registered, it even complicates the work for its own users who access from the Google search engine. This difficulty to see the images correctly, adds to its good positioning within search engines, which causes a large number of the images that show the results to come from this website.

In addition to the above, another problem that arises when looking for images is that, when clicking on a Pinterest image from Google, it will not take us directly to the selected photo, but will take users to the complete gallery to have to look for the photo again, and if it is not registered, see how the log file jumps for a better visualization, so much time that it takes the process to many times not be able to the image, it is for these reasons that many users have searched for something what to do about it.
