    I tried out using mentions recently and was quite happy with the result. However, I havent been able to achieve the same
    result since then and just cant figure out why.
    The difference in my traffic is major as I only get like 2% of the traffic I got before so there just must be something Im
    missing out. I use custom username list for mentions and target people exactly how i did before so I dont think the problem
    would be there.
    Is it possible that comments with mentions would be ghosted or people wouldnt get notification that they were mentioned?
    I also noticed that instagram changed algo again, was just wondering if it could affect mentions as well?
    I cant really think of anything else.

    Make sure you don't target the same users twice.

    Also make sure the place you are scraping from don't buy likes/followers.

    It can be notifications not being sent to end mentioned users. Reason be the accounts are too fresh you need to warm them up a bit.
