    Hey guys, I'm having some troubles adding a link in my bio that redirects to my landing page.

    I bought 10 IG PVA accounts on this forum, a dedicated proxy and used 2 of them to follow and like pictures in a particular niche (using FL with very, very low settings, 120 follows a day and 150 like per day). When the account was a week old and had 100 followers, I decided to add a link to my description to redirect the people to a landing page.
    So I bought a brand new domain, let's say "mysite.com" and the index.php of this website contains :

    Code:
    <?php    
    header('Location: http://landingpageofOGad.com');    
    ?>   
    
    The problem is that 15 minutes after I added the link to my description, both my accounts got banned... Their descriptions were unique and it was not a copy and paste. I don't really know what I did wrong, so if you could enlighten me/give me advices, that would be great.

    If you need more information, let me know.


    EDIT : Adding more information :
    Both the accounts were promoting the same product
    Their profile pictures were different too

    The problem is that Instagram detects redirects

    Tried many times with many different angles, it basically detects it every time.

    You can try cloaking it, or get 0.88$ domains for this task

    In my opinion IG then apply it's 5-8 same links on all accounts policy.
    More than that will most likely ban your accs

    First of all, Instagram can follow your landing page after redirect. Second, Instagram will ban most of accounts if they add a link at the early stages of their accounts. I've seen cases where they would ban someone even with a Facebook/Google link.

    IG is really strict with redirects, and even if your redirect is legit they will ban you

    I posted my website URL in my bio as soon as I opened my account, and it has been fine, no ban. I am not aggressively growing my account though, and am also interacting inside IG as well on a daily basis. I think this is important.

    What about a timed redirect? I am curious about that. 3-4 seconds after a full page load the site redirects to whatever. I haven't had experience with bans (for this reason), so I have no room to test it.

    It was a real domain that I bought, the extension was .xyz because it was cheaper but still, not a simple url shortener

    why not redirect the PC, Android and Iphone, and exclude the crawler? Seems to work on facebook.
