    I just check on instagram using my private bot that usually i used for spying and found that no external links pointing to pokemon or clash of clans LP at all

    Also no web 2.0 at all

    Anyone found the same?

    It's not dead, and it won't,it's just that IG is banning 80% of accounts promoting cpa and using bots

    Then why if we search on IG then no accounts found promoting those 2 popular niches?

    Because IG is way smarter than gaming hacks + grip. So it's definelly not for kids.
    If you want to make some bucks here, I suggest you to try some legit businesses.

    It took me all of 14 seconds to manually find someone with live links promoting Pokemon. Same guy, same links as last time I peeked at that niche. Looks like he's still going strong. Probly someone on here...

    When something is done by everyone and their dogs, in an abusive way that, of course measures will be taken. The reason that I don't believe in this "dead" thing anymore is based on my own experience. When everyone has been complaining for many years now of having their ads3ns3 accounts banned (mostly because of blackhat methods), I've been running 2 of my accounts (heavy click-jacking) since 2013 and not even a warning sent my way. Could be luck, but to call something dead on IM... especially now that I just bought the Instagram FL (lol).... not so soon.

    I think certain niches get abused and come under heavy scrutiny but if you get creative it's fairly easy to stay under the radar and still use content lockers etc. If that's your thing.

    Edit: By creative I mean less abused niches. There's a niche for everything under the sun and a large enough following on places like IG and fb to scale into many niches and bank undetected and with zero competition.

    I'd say CPA in general is on the decline the past couple years. People are realizing how shady it is.

    Yes... that explains the fact that some even make 1k+ a day through CPA (probably quite a handful of them in this forum). CPA will never be dead. It might be a network that will have issues, or something similar... but never dead or in decline. PPC, SEO, Dropshipping etc. everything is still alive and well, if you know how to use it.

    CPA will never die. Ig Cpa is declining only for people convinced that it's an Easy Game.. not their fault, lots of "methods" on the web and some "cpa journeys to xxx/day" talk about it as if it's an easy game, only to increase their referrals or to not have to reveal their real methods..
    Ig Cpa is not dying, it's just pointing out the fact that Easy Money Does Not Exist.

    While CPA is still effective for some niches, networks, and affiliates - across the board CPA has fallen. It's not as strong or easy as it was in 2008 - 2009 (Remember all those free gift card email submits? T. The owner of my affiliate network and I were talking about this the other day, and he also firmly believes this. And for the record, I was making ~3k a day with CPA during the last year...

    So yes, it's still profitable - but I think it's fair to say it's in relative decline compared to other markets.

    On another note, think about Amazon and eBay - eBay definitely isn't as big as it used to be, but that doesn't mean it's dead. Amazon certainly absorbed a large market of what used to be eBay, but eBay still serves a purpose to those who know how to use it. eBay isn't dead... but plenty of people still can make money off it if they know how to use it.

    EDIT: Some CPA sectors within Instagram are thriving if you know how to correctly monetize it. A great example of this is CPI, or cost-per-install offers. It took a while for CPA to catch up with this, but there are some select niche networks that work well with Instagram.

    CPA is definitely not dead. Its just that people on IG are fed up with spam and know how it looks already.
