    Since yesterday i've been getting followers from people whose pics I didn't like or account I didn't follow. Could someone be attacking my account by spam-commenting on other people's IG and pointing them to my account?

    When you tag a picture, people can search tags.

    I think thats when people see your pictures in the search page under the "based on photo youve liked"

    That is actually a good sign if they are just following you :)
    What you will have to look out for are spam bots (usually the comment bs under your pics). You will have to delete them so that your account looks clean.

    That's a good sign, you're now gaining followers organically, no need to be worried.

    That should be nothing to worry about, it's actually a great sing for your account. When you build a good quality account you will get followers from your followers followers if they like your content that much and promote you.

    Are they trying to cause harm to your account? Are they spamming you? If not then maybe they are totally harmless followers who have found your profile through mutual friend or from searches and got interested so they follow. If this is, then you should be happy to get organic and real followers.

    There's no point in bragging, it won't contribute anything to my goals. Forgive me as I'm a newbie to Instagram marketing. I'm just on my 15th day so Im practically still getting the hang of it.

    I'm just getting less of those follows in the last few days but it's still a puzzle. I used to do SEO and I know that sometimes competitors bombard your site with links from porn sites to delay/stop your growth so I got a bit paranoid.

    Thanks for your input guys, appreciate it :)
