    Default Instagram question

    How can you insert a hyperlink into instagram?

    When I type the link, it shows as normal text and you cannot click on it in order to go straight to the page.

    Tips?

    Thanks in advance!

    There's a space in your Instagram profile page for you to insert a link.

    I think you are talking about in a comment, right? If so you cannot comment links on Instagram. The only place you can have a hyperlink is on your profile.

    How do you cloak a link in your profile? Are people just linking to a landing page with an offer or is there another method to cloak the link in this spot?

    I would just do landing page, going directly to your ad link could get you banned by the CPA, plus landing pages make your advertising look more official.

    Unfortunately, you can't post links in comments, but you can watermark images with a url and put a url in your profile.

    You may creat a map place and rename it as your website. Will not redirect to your site, but will pay the users atenttion.
