    Hey!

    I have been following random people on a page and been getting many follow backs. I have however bought Follow Liker and been using the program to follow random people from the same page but the ratio is just terrible, I have followed almost 400 people and about 10 followed back?

    Make sure that "scrape only top result" is checked. This will give you the most recent visitors to the page and a better chance they are still on their phone and will follow you back.

    Will try that but it's strange how the ratio dropped so much with that program :/

    I was just like you in the beginning, getting very low amount of followers per day until I learned how to use the software.

    My suggestion for you: do not follow people based on hashtags. Just don't.

    I am currently following random followers on a fitness page, the follow back rate has been sh*t for whatever reason. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong with the software any suggestions?

    It could be that the content that you're uploading your own account isn't engaging any of your potential followers.

    I would also try scraping another fitness page. I find that there are a lot of crappy traffic in the fitness niche but at the same time, there are good ones as well. You just gotta tweak your scraping.

    The thing is, when I manually follow people on that page, I get great follow back ration but as soon as I use the software for the SAME page, the follow back ratio drops like crazy.

    That's your problem, you follow random followers. Some of them might be inactive now or not checking their Instagram.

    You should try and scrape the latest followers only if possible. I have a page in fitness niche as well, so far it's working good. So I doubt it's your niche. Maybe your content isn't good enough?

    Maybe I should have been more clear:

    I manually follow people from Page X that are: top results, both public/private and got pictures
    This gives a high follow back rate, close to 50%.

    When I do the same thing but with the software, the follow back rate drops to 10/400.

    The bot can't distinguished who is fake an who is not as you can, that is why the rates are different.

    I know for TS but I can only guess that its the same for FL that there is no settings for the background image, most of the bots don't have background image. The bot you have( I only guessing because this is on FL ) can only recognize if the user have profile image or not.

    Also this is VERY IMPORTANT. Did you configure the setting to not follow the users you have aredy followed and unwollowed?

    The thing is that I am not selecting who is fake or not when I follow manually, I just follow the top results which the bot does too but with much worse follow back ratio.

    Where can I find that option, am I required to import some kind of a list?

    How popular is the account you're scraping from? Try this method: scrape the users who liked his latest 10 pictures and see if that improves the ratio.
