    Hello, i have recently started working on Instagram and i am able to grow Instagram Pages with no detection of automation. What i don't understand is the CPA part, i have been reading online and i can't find a clear answer to this question, Why is CPA Ban-able by Instagram? i have read around and found out how to Avoid being banned, most of it says to Not put links up early, etc.

    Is the ban an issue with only people that create new accounts and bot them?
    Can i create an account, grow the page to 5k+ followers and then put a CPA link without being banned?
    Is CPA Completely against Instagram policies? Should i expect to be banned no matter what?
    or is the banning happening only to new accounts that post links to early or get caught automating?

    Thank you for taking the time to read this post, Much appreciated.

    1.Learn SEO and build a site with quality content based on the CPA offers. (This will also get you ranked and earn organic traffic)
    2.Build your instagram in a steady pace or buy an aged account in your niche
    3. add some twists
    4. profit

    the main key is to not rush for follows/followers or you will be ban.

    Perhaps using a cloaker to avoid getting banned.

    I don't know too, i just created an account 3 Days ago and i'm using it,
    64 Follower - 181 Following,
    Day 1 : Follow 400-500
    Day 2 : Unfollow all
    And repeat, i get 8 Clicks and 3 Conversions- 0.32$

    Its only one account, and i know that i'm going to be banned sooner !

    Okay so lets say i follow those steps, Learn SEO and build a site with Quality Content, build an instagram page to 10k+ followers. will this just lower my chance of being banned on Instagram? or i can't be banned?


    I just want to know if having CPA offers on Instagram is against their policy or if people that abuse it are the once getting banned.

    Most of the time it is just because you're using a proxy. Instagram detects proxies and instantly knows you might do something shady. I have done intense testing and know that an account is almost immune to bans when on a 3G mobile IP. Of course, other footprints like phone numbers etc. should also be treated with respect. What makes CPA even harder is that adding links automatically decreases your trust in Instagram's eyes.

    It is because his accounts niche is flagged. Flagged content gets your account banned almost always.

    It's a myth that Instagram don't like links in general in the profile (the only links they don't like are affiliate links). If they didn't like links in general they simply would take away the possibility to have them in the profile. The reason people get banned are usually one of these:

    1) You use a bot.

    2) Direct link to affiliate offer.

    3) You use a public proxy.

    Instagram is a business. They have a massive ad platform, and are owned by Facebook. Would you want everyone generating leads for free instead of using your ad network? :)

    400+ folowing per day for a fresh account?
    I spent 2 month to reach 400 following per day.
