    So I've now tried twice with the same kind of website in my bio link, with two different domains, but they all got banned within a few days

    I run other accounts with the same proxy provider/account provider/other links and they're all fully alive so I'm sure it has something to do with the site itself

    The kind of website I'm talking about is a landing page to collect emails. The design is superb and filled with content and images but the main focus of the page is an email submission which is located at the center

    Does the IG crawler automatically identify this kind of site/landing page?

    How do I go about to fly under the radar with this kind of site?

    You used two different domains with 301 redirect to the same site? IG now follows redirect to the final page so if the main site has been blacklisted all links redirecting to it will also be banned.

    This can probably easily be detected by Instagram. They are well aware if you are using a bot, so as soon as you put a link in the bio, your account will probably be flagged and send for manual review. It will take a human less than 10 seconds to identify the purpose of your website and click deactivate for your account.

    Since Instagram are owned by FB, they probably use some of the same ideas, on FB they have people sitting at like $4/hour to review photos, they have about 1.5s to respond to photos yes or no, this is why some photos can get through and others not, humans are deciding here. There was a fine documentary about this not long ago. The same are most likely applying to links on Instagram.

    Ahan so I'm not the only one... I was scratching my head as to why my new accounts with new domains are getting banned.. I had different domains but the content of the landing pages were all same..
