    Hi all,

    So recently I have been growing a small army of around 200 IG accounts. I've had a LOT of challenges along the way, unblocking blocks etc. But now the accounts are around 1-2 months old, and have 200-1000 followers. So I thought it was safe to upload my website URL links to the bios (I use followliker profile updater for this job). And immidiately all my accounts got blocked (and could even be disabled, as I haven't checked them all yet).

    I have had this problem before when uploading links (previously I uploaded links when I first created the accounts, and they got shut down immidiately).

    I am using clickmeter to generate the links. So that I can track the clicks etc. And, unlinke bitly, clickmeter allows me to generate hundreds of different URLs for the same target link. But it only uses around 2 or 3 domains per trackable link.

    I know instagram security checks for duplicated links, but I thought I was safe as I am using 200 unique links. But from this experience it seems that maybe they actually checked for duplicated domains within the links?

    Does anyone know the maximum number of URLs per domain, that can be used in IG account bios?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated. As I am really struggling turning these accounts into a path for website traffic.

    That is a pain in the ass if these 200 accounts get blocked. Have you tried the linking facebook link? It should work

    safe is one domain per account, also IG checks where the urls lead too, if they all lead to the same website, of course they are going to get banned.
    you need to start using prelanders or cloak your site.

    You need to use a Prelander.

    IG profile > prelander > Landing Page

    There should be a big button saying "Click here to continue" or something else on your pre lander . this will prevent your accounts from getting banned.

    Yeah, redirects wont work for any network anymore (IG, Youtube, Facebook) because the site follows the link.

    Thanks man. But what is a pre-lander or cloaking? and how do I set that up? Is there a provider or something I can use?
    (Sorry if that's a stupid question, I am new to all this)

    Instagram method

    Only becouse you sound nice person and it xmas and happy new year ....

    This method is for you, if you don't want to purchase 100 different domains for your Instagram + PPI stuff.

    POSITIVE: Safe money & time!

    NEGATIVE: ~20% less conversions! (tested)

    In other words, this is perfect for you, if you have little money, but still want to start scaling your accounts.

    METHOD:

    1. Go create a tumblr account

    2. Like a few posts & follow users, to make sure your account looks legit

    3. Create a new blog with you're desired domain.tumblr.com

    4. Go to the appearance settings of your new blog & click on edit HTML

    5. Paste the redirect code below into the header & DO NOT delete anything.

    6. Safe it & try it to make sure everything is working fine.

    7. Go the blog settings again & enable PASSWORD PROTECTION.

    8. Choose a simple password like "123" "111" & save it.

    9. Paste the URL into your Instagram account & mention the password under your CTA.

    FINISHED!

    I personally tested this over a longer period of time & never experienced a ban due to DOMAINS as this totally blocks everything from accessing your site except user who can read, which is what you want.

    You can also change your domain whenever you want, so when Instagram blocks your domain or gives people a warning before accessing, you can simply bypass that.

    I stopped Instagram + PPI a few weeks ago due to being bored & moral stuff, however I find this is an extremely useful thing as it solves the whole domain problem & wonder why it has never been shared.

    CODE:

    Paste it into the header of each tumblr blog you create!

    Code:
    <script>

    //redirect to your destination email, which can be your LP
    window.location.replace('http://YOURDOMAIN.com' + window.location.pathname);

    </script>
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 3

    another free and easy option is too use weebly.

    you can make 10 websites per account. and you only need to make a website once per account since you can copy the websites.

    Thanks! But if I have 200 IG accounts, does that mean I need to spend the time building 200 different prelanders?

    The way I see it is there are a few various elements that IG can track here:

    1. Redirect link (in IG Bio) - I am using generated links from clickmeter.
    2. The Prelander Domain
    3. The Prelander Content
    4. Target landing page (on my own website)

    So I am assuming the point of a prelander is to block IG from getting to point 4 (my own website). And therefore everything in points 1-3 can be checked by IG security, and therefore need to be "unique".

    So am I right in saying that if I am running 200 instagram accounts, which I want to use to drive traffic to my own website... I need to prepare:
    - 200 unique redirect links (each with unique domain)
    - 200 prelander domains
    - 200 build prelander pages with own unique content/layout etc.

    That sounds like quite a lot of work. And some challenges I can already see are:
    - my 200 redirect links (from clickmeter) are currently sharing 2 or 3 domains (e.g. www domain com) for the 200 redirect links (e.g. www domain com / link1)
    - how do I generate 200 prelander domains? do these come with the website (e.g. weebly) that I would use to create the prelanders? Do they provide a unique domain for each prelander you build?
    - and actually building 200 different unique prelanders could take a loooot of work (with risk that they get banned at some point).

    Wow, seems like I am going to be busy in the New Year ;-)
    I have come so far in building my instagram accounts to this point. To turn back now would be soul destroying. But I am just finding this so difficult to be able to get these accounts to direct traffic to my website. Instagram security is such a pain.!!

    Thanks guys, and happy NYE!!

    no, in total you make 20 pretendersm and on weebly you only spend like 2 minutes to create a website then copy that 10 times and give each of those a name, its simple quick and free.

    1 account can have 10 websites.

    But then won't my IG accounts get blocked if every 10 accounts send to the same websites (even if different name)? I thought followliker looks at the content of the prelander pages to see if they are the same... so if 10 have the same content then wouldnt I get blocked?

    And what do you mean when you say you give each of the 10 websites a different name? Do you mean a different URL? If so, then surely the domain is still the same (I.e. www weebly com / website1-10) ?

    Thanks again for you advice! :)

    its works OGads recommends and ive been doing it. they wont get blocked because of that.

    what i mean by the name is the url that looks like: www.example.weebly.com or www.examples.weebly.com and its not the same website they are diffrent but they are a copy of each other. and weebly is trusted by instagram so its fine.

    Awesome! So I create 1 website (pick a theme and add some content/text), then copy-paste that website 10 times (with different names as shown above). But when I copy-paste to the other 10 do I need to tweak the content at all? Or is it okay if each one looks exact same (layout/text) as other 9? I'm just asking cos I thought Instagram checks the content on page.

    Watch that :)

    If you really want to you can copy in random articles from wherever and then change the font colour to the same as the background. but i dont do that.

    10 websites all look the same for me, and its fine.

    Dude, thank you so much! All starting to make sense now. Much appreciated!
    So how many IG accounts are you using this approach for? And how many IG accounts do you usually assign the same weebly domain? In the video he says 5-6 IGs per weebly domain. Does that work for you?
    I also use redirect links (from clickmeter) to track my hits per IG account. So might still use those, but instead redirect to the weebly domain first, rather than straight my own.
    There is hope! :)

    There is only two thing work - Either invest on some good cloacker(Not public, but real cloacker is invite based and you have to pay $$$$) or use different domain name on all of accounts. Generating 200 short link does not help in anything, neither redirection helps. They are pretty good to detect spam URL
