    I posted this over in "making money" because there's a bit more traffic there but no luck... so maybe I'll have more luck here...


    How exactly does IG banning work?


    I had an account that I built up to a couple thousand followers doing it manually (follow/unfollow) in the fishing niche. I posted pics of fish people caught (not my pics... just pulled from the internet). About a week after making the account, I put a link to my website in the bio, continued my follow/unfollow... and boom.. I was banned almost instantly.

    So I made a new account... same niche, did the same process exactly... banned again.

    Was I banned cause of the link and then carrying on following/unfollowing immediately? I thought I may have read somewhere after putting a website in your bio, you should wait a week or so before mass following again.

    Or was I banned cause I had pics of a bunch of random people without acknowledging them or anything?

    Anybody figured out the formula here?

    most likely u got banned because the link, IG will "Check" your account after you add or change your bio link. leaving you even more noticiable while mass follow/unfollowing

    That makes sense. So what's the safe way of doing it? Put your link in and wait before continuing the follow/unfollow? Or once you put a link in are you just pretty much stuck with what you've got... ? lol

    Has anyone here put links in the bio and the successfully continued follow/unfollow without a ban?

    Preferably an aged account might work.
