Instagram team revealed on what basis something gets free coverage, and something doesn't. It's about getting into Instagram Explore Recommended Accounts and Recommendations on IGTV.

So, the coverage is less for those who post:

· cosmetic procedures;
· Pharmaceuticals;
· Supplements for weight loss;
· Loans for debt repayment;
· "Risk-free" investments;
· The promise of gifts;
· Contests;
· Copy-paste of other people's posts without adding your comment;
· Misinformation about vaccines

Traffic from recommendations is also lost to those whose ads have recently been blocked.

This info may be helpful for your strategy or niche choosing process.

A complete list of bans is here here.

What are your thoughts on the news?
These was already clear,Instagram or any other social media site wouldn't allow these things and won't give free coverage to them.

Still thanks for this.
