    Hi all,

    As stated in the title, my account the hashtags are ghosted. However, when the likes and comments go quick, the post does make it to the top posts.

    Meaning, I only see the posts in top posts, but not in between the recent posts. Does somebody know why this is?

    So your photos just appear in top recent ( guess in non popular hashtags) and not in normal stream

    They appear on the top spot in both popular and non popular hashtags. But not in the normal stream indeed.

    When you post, it appears immediately and after a certain period disappears, or not appear since you post it?

    For me it's exactly the opposite:
    If I check posts from another account I can see them in the hashtag stream but never in the top9 even though they are on top when I check them on the main account.

    But they don't. I checked from my two other accounts and from my gf account: they are not in top9. I can only see them in top9 with that account that has shadowban.
    Why do you think it is "normal"?

    I think it because me and some friends checked this for few weeks happening.
    We used the same sets of hashtags. One time each one from his account saw in #dope top9 his photos. From other accounts nothing

    This has to do with instagram's algo's and such. Apprarently given how it all works, your explore feed or your tag feed (top posts feed on a hashtag) will never be the same as someone else's. Everyone's is unique. So you may see your post ghosted or on top tags from the OP account but if you check it on a different account, it may not be there at all (or it could be in top tags if you saw it was ghosted on the OP account).

    The best thing i can tell you is that your best bet to be sure its up there is if you can see the post in top tags from both (or multiple accounts). Otherwise it's a crapshoot in some ways. But people will probably still see it. If that helps :)

    Thanks for the reply bud.
    As I said, I can only see it from the main account. Also, these top9 feeds are absolutely the same EXCEPT this one post -- mine -- that appears only to me and not to others. Here's are two screen shots of what I am talking about.

    Here's what I just found out: I created these small hashtags like #blxckink_usa or #blxckink_korea there are almost no other posts except mine. And it's all good with those tags, I can see the posts on top from any account.
    Also, yesterday I had a post and I wrote one hashtag that I wrote never before. And there I got to the top and I can see that post from any account as well.
    So, this could be it: same hashtags over and over again can lead to this shadowban.
    I will prove this theory asap and I'll write how it went.

    Here it is once again, both screen shots from the same account that in one case follows main account and in another -- does not.
    When I don't follow main account all posts from top9 dissapear, it is clear from these two screens because all 9 posts on top are mine as it it brand new hashtag.
