    that's too much for a new account plus you've put a link into your profile, which immediately triggers a ban. If you read recent posts, even people, who had links to their blogs(which shouldn't be a problem), got banned because of that

    for now there's no safe way to do that. safer to not put link in the description. IG will start(probably) it's ad service soon, which you can use to promote your services.

    This situation is really messed up, yesterday another guy said that he got his acc banned after he inserted a link in his bio.. but where is the logic here when you see so many profiles with links..

    OP how old was your acc? How many posts you had? Did you use proxies? Bots?

    OP seems like you were going too hard for a new account? Maybe they have a filter to see how soon an account added a link to the profile.
    Also, did you use the same link for both the accounts that got banned?
