    Hey guys I´m having some issues with hashtags. I just bought a grown account with 11K followers. When I post the likes and comments start coming fast, the engagement is quite good. In my last post for example I got 2k likes and 70 comments in 24 hours so this should rank in small hashtags easy but is not the case. I put just few hashtags and related with the photo to don´t look spammy. The thing is that if I check in the recent tab of the hashtags the post is there but if I go to the top one they don´t. I can scroll down and down and my posts are nowhere. Some of the hashtags have only 5k posts, I can see for example in the top 9 one post with 500 likes posted in January and my post fresh and with more engagement cannot rank over that. Some one has an idea of what´s going on??

    I don't know if this could be related but 3 or 4 days later of buying that account I bought another one but in this case an aged account but totally empty without followers, post and anything else. Then I changed the name, password, username, profile photo and I posted my first post with a photo, caption and 3 hashtags, quite small all of them, related with the image and not banned. In this case the post didn't appear even in the recent tab of hashtags. During the next 2 days I've been posting 3 more posts and the same happened.

    Do you think everyone is an isolated case or maybe they are under the same problem. The device I'm using is my second phone I just logged in with these 2 accounts. I bought the phone second hand but everything was clear and reinstalled. I use my private wifi. Instagram is banning only accounts or they can ban devices or even wifis?? I got lots of shadowbans before in another account using the same wifi but different device finally they ruinned that account. Could this affect my 2 new accounts in some way??

    Thank you in advance.

    I really don't understand what's your problem if you are already having impressive likes and comments stats?
    If your account is growing at a nice rate and your engagement stays high, I wouldn't care that much about hashtags.

    It is funny, because a month ago I would disagree. But the last couple of weeks, I have started to post without hashtags, and I am basically seeing the same results. I still grow about 2.000 followers – with and without hashtags. If the posts are shared and saved a lot, it does not really matter using hashtags. The most impressions I have gotten from hashtags are like 180k anyway, whereas the purely organic is more than a million impressions. But then again, it probably also depends on the size of an account.

    The problem is that without the hashtags spread my posts keeps always within my followers base. I want to grow organically without promotions or shoutouts and this is impossible if my posts aren't shown to new people. I'm just getting a few followers a day.

    This is because probably you are being shown on the explore page which is nice but is not my case. Insta is only showing my posts to my current followers.

    Anyone knows if is there some kind of shadowban attached to the router IP ?? I mean can they fucked up all the devices connected under the same wifi if only one of them is doing things against the insta rules?? Thx

    i think you are putting so many hashtags so that's why less reach is there. try with less hashtags

    I am having the same problems with my hashtags. Couple weeks ago I was getting 4000-8000 hashtag views which still is really low for a 17k account. Recently I have been getting about 1000. Instagram is messed up.

    Are your images showing up on the hashtag pages?

    Also where did you buy your accounts from? I am looking to buy an account as I feel mine is dying but need a trustworthy source.

    Yes, your concerns are correct. Instagram shadow-shadowbanned ALL your accounts. The same thing happened to me. I was using Jarvee and fake likes on my other Instagram account and few months after ive stopped all my other Instagram accounts got fucked as well. I recently bought an account which was grown from 0 -> 200k followers in a year and the second I logged on and started posting the posts went from 60k likes to below 10k. Same thing happened with my organically grown account, one day my posts went from 500 likes average to 20. You will also find you cannot create another Instagram account on any of your devices you've previously used Instagram with.

    It's either that or Instagram just decided hashtags no longer work, in order to force you use Instagram ads.

    lol I wouldnt dismiss this theory. Instagram money hungry. The problem is their ads are pants.

    They can ban you by device even after you do factory resets.

    I use 26-30 hashtags and still get great results with them. I always use a wide variety and some of them rank, some of them don't. I operate 5 accounts, but have made over 15, and grew 10 for a year. Used 2 phones and a pc over the same wifi. Keep testing and try using more hashtags.
