    I was able to build this account up to 1.2k with just following and liking with no link
    then I added a link a couple of days ago BANNED lol

    It's was a fresh new domain forward to a landing pages..

    Now I'm checking with no commenting only liking and following with no link to see what
    happen ?

    I would love to hear your feedback please comment below

    Thanks
    Steven

    I doubt it, I've seen tons of accounts with links on them, and they've been alive for months. It must have something to do with the links you're using.

    It was probably some other footprint that got the account banned, not links. I don't think they give a shit about links.

    They do care about links actually. Many accounts have been banned because of links.

    I'm still trying to figure out whether it was my link or other activity such as following too many people per day that got my 5k account disabled. I had just added a link the other day.
    Steven I'd suggest you don't add any links for now and just keep growing it until we get more of a feel for what IG is trying to do.

    On my personal account I have my blog set in my bio.
    Should I just remove it?
    Not monetizing or anything but guess they won't check the links one by one...
    Oh and I'm using FL.

    Possible manual review in place as IG prepares to launch their advertising platform. I could easily see eggheads sitting around all day going account to account and literally checking and deleting all accounts with spammy links. While you may say but the sheer volume of accounts to check makes this impossible ... to which I would say not if you had some other filtration process in place already to flag specific accounts on multiple levels.

    In light of recent ban happiness it seems likely to me we are feeling the brunt of IGs ill will as they prepare to make a ton of money "above board" by selling the exact same crap we all do in slightly different ways. lol

    I got 20 accounts with all the same link banned the other day. That was probably my fault for having the same link. Another account I had that I made the same time had a link but a different one and it didnt get banned.

    I haven't heard anything from IG and I don't expect them to email me back. I'm going to make a new account very similar to the one I had but without any links, not really sure how I'm going to grow it this time..I've read about so many people in here following hundreds per day with no problem. I'm also considering using a bot this time.
