Blocked resources> https://widgets.pinterest.com. What is the procedure to unblock

Mohammad Fazle Rabbi says: 5/05/2016

Hi Jhonny..Here is the limitation of Google search Console. Because you can't verify host in Pinterest. However to solve the issue just use "Fetch as Google" option. And if you find some least popular site then you can write them to verify the host. But most of them won't verify their site with your verification code. :gt

All my pins from my website are blocked. My articles are ranking well in serp but something is telling me that if those resources was not blocked my rankings should be a bit higher. I am right or wrong? Thank you for your time Mohammad and I am waiting your answer.

Hi Cristian Adam,
I have unblocked all of my blocked resources in Google Search Console except Pinterest. Still i didn't find any solution to unblock pinterest. I think Pinterest doesn't allow any search boat to give access in their resources. And search engine will block only 1 or 2 post for render blocking script.

I have used pinterest script in a single post below so i have found only 1 article has blocked by Google.

https://www.bloggerspice.com/2015/12/create-pinterest-follower-board-and-add-to-your-Blogger-blog..html

However single blocked page is not a big issue. Still you can get higher rank in search engine by your other articles. So don't worry.

A website's rank depend on the unique and epic content that written by 3000 to 8000 words. So if you write long articles by using long keyword then definitely you will able to divert traffic and higher rank.

Thank you :)

Thank you for your answer. The problem was that all my articles are blocked, any way I have discovered and article where google says that a third party blocked resources will not affect the rankings, I don't know if I am allowed to place place links, if is a problem please delete http://www.thesempost.com/google-confirms-third-party-blocked-resources-not-problematic/ . One worry is gone, the thing is that I don't like to see errors. Thanks again for your time Mohammad and have a great day
