    You are wrong and right at the same time :) They have a new way of "banning" accounts. Keep testing till you figure out what's going on ;)

    Buddy those are commonly used shortners which are spammed to dead..

    Use some private shortners before you scale up your method.

    You don't want to use public popular url's shortners, they will get banned instantly. You need to try and find private or less public shorteners. ex. http://rurl.us/ This was posted a few weeks ago on this forum, haven't tested it tho - so don't know if Instagram will ban you for using it.

    Also, I'm just linking to YouTube through bitly, so maybe that's part of the reason.

    I had my accounts banned today aswell. All of them where 8 months old, on diffrent proxy's. But i posted the same pictures on the same moment on the accounts. I also had the same link in my bio. After that, all of them needed phone verification. RIP.

    Instagram can probably follow the redirect and see the final destination . That's why.

    I'm using google shortener, redirecting to a link which I use to redirect again and to cloak the link to my LP. Basically, I'm only using it to track stats.

    Best Regards,
    Jaymien.

    I'm using bit.ly to shorten and track my instagram clicks. Been using it for over a year with no problem. Maybe don't put your link on day 1 and you'll be fine.

    There may other reasons that the accounts are getting banned mate. Are you using any copyrighted content?
