    Hello,

    I have a big page with 200k followers and my competitor has 140k followers.

    Seems like I can't get to popular while my competitor does.
    I have 16k average likes per media, 1k avg comments per media.

    My competitor get less likes & comments than my avg and still get popular.

    Why it happen?
    Someone know what is the algo for this?

    Thanks

    In my view, the one with more interaction is definitely the one that is more popular.
    Whats your definition of popular OP?

    What do you mean by "get popular"? You clearly have the higher engagement rate. ~_~

    I wouldn't care about that at all. You are getting more interactions (likes, shares and followers) which is all that matters. Not only is this how a person would actually describe being more popular in real life but its all how you make money and get traffic so its really all that matters.

    You want to land in the "Explore" section of Instagram? If I understand right,photos that gain likes over a very short period of time + mutual friends show up in the "Explore" section.

    Its true but you know it was very strange so I asked about it.

    Yea I heard about the short time. I am getting around 170 avg likes per minute for 30 mins. I will test my competitor to see their stats.

    What do you mean in mutual friends?

    on the explore-tab the picture's your friends like are shown, or e.g. if you have mutual "friends" with the people you're following. It's like more about the pictures you like, the people you follow like etc. mutual = in common.
