    Well, you can read the title. I've two big IG account. They're near 500k followers each. I used to get like 2k followers per day on each account separately but now those numbers are just a dream. Now i am only getting like 2k followers per week. And another thing is my posts are no longer visible on any hashtag i use.

    What can be problem? My account Got hsshtag banned? Ghosted or is there some other problem?

    Any type of input will be appreciated.

    Thsbks!

    I got one of my account ghosted from searches after i verified this and the other account with the same mobile number.
    So far, i haven't found any solution to solve this.

    Also, you can check if you're ranked for any hashtag using desktop version of instagram from another ip.

    Sorry to hear OP. Seems that Instagram ghosted your account. Hard, if not impossible to bring them back. It's like when Google bans a website. No matter what SEO, ads, etc. you try, it will never, ever, be in the top 10 pages - internet death by all means.

    Most likely copyright strike or flagged for botting etc.

    You're surmising. Maybe you're right but i don't think that's the reason. This has to do something with hashtags. My account is still on top or accessible when you search about my niche. So it's not ghosted.

    OP, have you stated what you were doing with the account just before this happened? Buying likes, followers, putting a non-reputable link in your bio or repeating the same link in several accounts?

    So, do you advice never ever using content of others (without their permission) or do you know successful people you are close to you (someone called it "the sacred circle") /buddies of you who are doing it with the attitude "I dont give a f*** if they ban one account, I have several accounts and I am able to grow a new account fast"? Would be really great to hear your opinion, ImGrej. Thank you.

    What's the status of your account, still "hashtag-ghosted"? Or did you hear anything from Instagram?

    If you want to be completely safe you should do your own content yes.

    But if that's not an option for you I would advice to always give proper credit, and if you can't find the original source of the post just don't post it.
    There are definitely people with a lot of big accounts who don't give a shit about credit but it's quite rare.

    Also if you're in quite a specific niche you could contact photographer or content creators in that niche for their permission to repost.
