    how are you guys who are botting keeping your accounts from being banned since the update? are you still posting a link in the bio or are you only watermarking the images with your website, and when you change the info of the account like the name and such how long are you letting the account sit before you start botting it? oh yeah and I am referring to people promoting cpa or ppi.
    thanks in advance for all the info

    You need to slow down the bot, especially if you are a new account. Older accounts can get away with doing tasks much faster.

    my accounts are getting banned mostly before i even bot with them, i change the bio and link and stuff and let it rest for like 24 hrs and its banned before i even bot with it, 50% of my accounts are getting banned after i change the info, so thats why i was asking, I will try to just do it by watermarking images with my landing page and leave the link the bio empty.

    I started botting immediately on my account even though it's newly created. From what I have read, landing pages won't help because once you link your landing page to your IG account it will search banned aff. links in your landing page. I think that's the reason why you keep on getting banned. The possible solution for this is to setup your own url redirect and another landing page (instagram -> landing page -> url redirect -> landing page with offer) or if you're a programmer create an app for iOS or android and put your offer there by this way IG won't think that you are promoting banned aff. links instead, they will think that you are just promoting your own app :)

    ...or you can just cloak your links, like me :)

    Right here
    Are there no bots out there that offer some kind of variance / random behaviour? It's key to coming across 'natural'. If I were them I'd even build up some standardized profiles with most recognized behaviour and then model your anti-bot system after that.

    Kind of like what Geohot has done with a self-driving car: http://www.bloomberg.com/features/2015-george-hotz-self-driving-car/

    Just in reverse. Have a bot monitor your 'natural' behaviour and then scale and replicate. In the end, you want to behave as much or exactly like any other user. If you do that, there's no way they can 'catch' you :)
