    Hey, everyone. I'm new to these automated Instagram services for buying likes and followers. After some research, I concluded that buying likes is better than buying followers. I couldn't see the point of buying followers since many (or all?) may turn out to be fake (not sure if I'm correct on that). But buying enough likes (at least 3,000?) could actually land you on the popular page... that made more sense to me. So I bought a 5000-likes service on eBay for $12.00...

    First question: The seller told me that it could take 6 to 12 hours to receive the full amount of likes... Fine. However, is this how long it should normally work? Should it usually take so long get 5,000 likes through a buying service?

    Second question: For an account with only about 5,000 followers, what's the best bot or service to use to land your photo on the popular page? My acc't only has 5,000 followers which only gets me about 100 likes on a great photo on say, a Sunday night.

    Looking forward to your answers.

    Popular page key is way more difficult than buying fake followers & likes. Neither buying likes or followers will help you. Also you've overpaid for your service. Try fiverr.com or BST on blackhatworld.com

    The popular page can be acquired by buying followers and likes and its honestly not that hard.....just expensive. The key that most people overlook is that a certain ratio of your followers have to like the picture as well, not just the likes that you bought who don't follow you. Also you have to take in account that your competing against other people, so even once you've made it to the popular page you need to keep feeding your picture likes to maintain your position.

    Thanks for the info, guys. I'll look into fiverr.

    I've bought "shout-outs" (or posts) on popular IG acc'ts before. It works but it's darn expensive.

    I've done a little more research in the forum and found that most people suggest using bots to auto-like and comment on posts in order to gain followers... these interactions are more authentic, so that makes sense to me.

    Another question: if buying likes or followers doesn't land you on your on the popular page... then why do people buy likes or followers? I get that having a lot of followers it "ups" your "cool" factor in the eyes of other users... but beyond that, neither of those methods gets you a lot of exposure on Instagram... or does it in some way? And if not... (again) what's the point?

    most people arent as smart as you are...to most instagrammers having 1000 followers whether real or fake is "the coolest thing ever" and thats all that matters! Why do you think people make a living off of selling followers and likes? Because to the general public "coolness" and covering up the insecurity of only having 10 followers is important. Not everyone thinks like IMers. All people care about is what other people think about them. But not to get to carried away like I said before buying followers and likes CAN and DOES land people on the popular page everyday, and some companies/businesses use this to there advantage.

    Thanks, provision. Okay - good to know!

    What led me here is an Instagram user (and store) I've been following. Somehow, her online store acc't on IG managed to gain less than 450,000 followers in just a 1.5 years... and the photos she posts "ain't all that". Of course, I haven't been able to see all her posts but if they're anything like her current posts, I don't quite see the appeal... Anyhow, her store's Facebook account is at 44K, yet mosts of her posts get as little as 3 likes... While good FB posts during the week (1.9K) get 4 to 6 likes (kudos) to me... So, her FB acc't definitely seems fishy. As far as Instagram goes, in her earlier days, she could have sunk hundreds to a couple thousand dollars into paid "shout-outs" on popular Instagram acc'ts.

    Anyhow, I've learned about all these black-hat social networking tools on the forum tonight and now I'm trying to figure out which is the best to invest time and money into (I'm on Tumblr, Pinterest, FB, and Twitter as well). Decisions...

    The same reason for people buying fake followers and FB likes really - it increases the perceived authority.

    People like being involved with a popular trend and are therefore more likely to interact with your content if they perceive it as popular.

    Am the only one who thinks that the new setup for getting on pop page is a good thing? The harder it is to get on there means more quality pics and genuine followers

    Wow - good point. Thanks for that.

    NotOJSimpson,
    that's a good point, too. The more users with low quality photos, goods, or services are able to infiltrate the pop page, the more regualr Instagram users may become turned off from the pop-age altogether. I get that. It makes a lot of sense for Instagram to make their pop-algorithm more strict. Keeps us on our toes, anyway.
