    Hi!

    I know adding a URL to the bio increases the risk of getting flagged/banned but is it the same if you make a photo with the URL written in the actual photo and post the photo?

    I really doubt that they have a OCR built into their system, but it is possible.

    I'd say that you're safe to do that - as I've seen a lot of porn spam doing it and it lasts quite a long time - but it would massively lower conversions.

    Why do you worry about URLs in bio or posts? If you're not spamming, scamming or otherwise advertising any sex or crappy sites; you shouldn't worry about it.

    I don't spam. What I have is a pretty serious instagram account for my company. I do Follow/Unfollow 300-400 a day and like photos manually. I want to add the website adress of my company in the place where it should be (in bio), but I am afraid that in combination with the Follow/Unfollow will cause flagging/banning?

    You should not have any problems with the URL in bio if it's your company's IG account and not a CPA one :)
