    So I've been on reading countless threads on BHW to figure out which settings will work the best for me. I see people boosting about gaining 150-200 followers a day. Meanwhile I'm getting 5-10. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong so maybe you guys can make some suggestions? I've reached out to FL Support team and of course I'm still waiting for a response. Anyways, here's my settings

    Scrape Users: 100
    Ignore Private and no profile pics
    I added several queries w/ hashtags and usernames

    Scrape Photo: 100
    I added several queries w/ hashtags and usernames

    Follower Ratio: 1.60 (if i put it at 0 I'm following 1,000 people and I only have 190 followers, so I brought it back to 1.60)
    Follow Limit 10-20
    Daily Follow: 400-450
    17-20 seconds

    UnFollower Ratio: 1.60
    UnFollow After: 1 day
    UnFollow Limit 10-20
    Daily Follow: 350-450
    22-24 seconds

    Photo Share Limit 1-2
    Daily Photo Share Limit 1-2
    Delay: 15-20 Seconds
    (added nice photos with hashtags)

    Like Limit: 20-40
    Daily Like Limit: 1500-1600
    Delay: 17-22 Seconds

    Comment Limit: 5-10
    Daily Comment Limit: 50-57
    Delay Comment: 2000 - 2500 Seconds
    [Used several Spintax comments]

    With these settings I only liked 106 photos and commented on 22 images with 0 new followers gained (probably because of the ratio). What can I do to increase my followers and also like more images? Do you guys set your ratio to 0 in the beginning to gain as many followers as possible then start deleting them after?

    Thanks for your help

    Change your unfollow after at least 7 days

    Thanks, what about my ratios? Set to 0 or leave it at 1.60 for follower and unfollow?

    I have the same problem as you unfortunately, I don't understand how people are able to gain 100-200 followers per day, I have tried a lot of stuff already. Could anyone help out?

    I guess you have to contact the support of followliker if the software not working properly.

    Are you targeting hashtags related to your niche?

    Not getting followers does not mean the software is not working.. Perhaps OP is simply targeting incorrectly..

    Yesterday I got 120. Today I'm unfollowing and liking only and still up +25. People have to like your content. I only post 1-2 photos a week but it's QUALITY material, full edited pics, with a nice laid out caption. You don't see this layout with your average joe instagram. I've only been using FL for about 10 days and gained over 1000 followers.

    I'm using good photos from other feeds (and giving them PC of course) I have laid out the captions nicely with good content. I think there's seriously something wrong with the software because FL support finally got back to me with help and the settings they recommended did not change my follow/liking actions.
    You see the settings I have for Likes above right? Well I'm only liking under a 100 a day, seems odd. I even added more targeted followers, hashtags and wrote good quality comments and spun them on Spintax.

    I'll keep toying with it though.

    The problem is that your delay on your comments is WAY too long. You're currently waiting up to 40 minutes between comments. And if you're doing up to 10 comments per "run" (Comment Limit: 5-10), then you're going to be commenting for around 6 hours before moving onto the next task (following or liking). This is the reason you only liked 100 photos - because you didn't have time to do anything else.

    Change the comment delay to around 60-90.
    Stop using the ratio - leave it at 0.
    Unfollow after 7 days.
    I would personally increase the delay on your follow/unfollow settings to around 40-50 (this one is up to you though, I just like to be safe).

    You should see a big improvement after doing the above steps.

    Thank you kind sir. When you say leave the ratio at 0, do you mean the follow/unfollow ratio or like/comment limit?
    Finally, is my general settings correct at: Account Proxy 5, Account Threads: 15, Auto Int 4-6 min

    Thanks

    Leave the follow/unfollow ratio at 0.00. In my opinion it's easier to just keep an eye on things manually. If your ratio starts to look bad, such as you are following more than you have followers, you can adjust the settings and start to unfollow more.

    How many accounts are you running? If you're only running one account, then your general settings look fine :)

    I let the software run all night (8hrs) and it has only liked 12 photos total. It's followed 400 but only gained 30 new followers. I realize it will take a while to gain followers and I understand but is this correct stats for the settings I used? 12 likes in 8hrs?

    My guess is there's something wrong with your scrape photo settings. The bot has probably scraped a few photos, liked them all, and then just followed for the rest of the 8 hours because it had no more photos to like.

    Do you mind sharing your exact scrape photo settings - including queries and hashtags. PM me if you don't want to post them.
