    Ok so I am currently using 2 bots gramdominator and gmt2,
    Yes so I am using different accounts for each bot and running both bots on different vps, I basically just used the same setting across both of them, yet my accounts on gmt2 are now asking for pv.. yeah

    So I guess something is wrong with my follow,unfollow, like and comment settings.
    My settings are basically to follow 20 people per operation with roughly 30 seconds delay and 10 minutes delay between each operation.

    I comment on each user followed and also like 1-2 pics of them. I try to follow 600 people everyday the accounts are aged. Users are unfollowed 3 days after being followed....

    I think I am aggressive with these settings.. anyways looking for ig experts to shed some light on this topic, and please tell me some better settings to utilise follow,unfollow,like,comment without getting PV's or rather bans

    Commenting on each users profile is to much imo, I would start by reducing that to like 200, 600 follows isn't bad & 1-2 likes might be abit much too I'd try reducing that slightly, your software probably doesn't pause when you're getting temp blocks which maybe causing PV.

    You should start from beginer settings to agressive , change settings every week , at least 3 weeks for beginner settings and then to agressive ones.:)
    This is what I am doing with my accounts:)

    I didn't gave preferences to hourly limits, but now i'll do thnx

    I find commenting increases follow back ratio, even though my numbers are too low to get any info. Can you correct me if I am wrong thnx though

    So how many should I like each day? And yeah now i'll limit comment numbers. For pausing I am not sure about that, I will talk to gmt2 owner/manager and I'll check

    Even though the accounts are aged I need to warm them up first? Can you recommend beginner settings in such cases

    How does the follow limit count? If let's say it's safe to follow 30/hour, does it mean I can also unfollow 30 in the same hour?

    I mean are the follow vs. unfollow limits separated or they add up?

    As much as I understand, instagram will ban if you follow and unfollow at same time

    I'm following and unfollowing at the same time so my followers to followings ratio doesn't look spammy. I never experienced a ban. I'm just wondering if the follow/ unfollow limits add up or it's a separate thing.

    How much are you following and unfollowing per hour though? And what number you maintain your followings on?

    Maybe take a break and not follow/unfollow. It's always good to idle a account, remember that.

    I go with 600 follows per day... I didnt set up any amounts per hour, only per day... I dont need per hour - as each operations has break of 40-60 minutes on average
