    I'm starting into CPAlead promotion on Instagram and my link keeps getting blocked by IG.
    I've tried several different cloaking methods using a couple different WordPress link cloakers and everytime IG detects cpa.ly and blocks my acct, tried iFraming the link and CPAlead refuses to load the offer in the iFrame, tried a few public URL shortners like Tinyurl and Nullrefer.com still no luck.

    So apparently the only working method I can think of is create a page and slap up a big ole banner saying "Click here to enter raffle/email/blah/blah/blah" but one would think that you can redirect Instagram's UAgent spider bots from crawling the cpalead url and redirect those pesky little IG spiders somewhere else, or is using the landing page method as I have described above the best method available?

    What do you guys usually do? I'm new to CPA but don't really run into this issue when promoting a clickbank link, so this is a new area for me.

    Thoughts? :)

    Make a landing page with bit.ly link to CPAlead should work fine.
    Instagram --> Landing Page with bit.ly link --> CPAlead offer

    Don't forget to obfuscate the redirection. Hope this help.
