    I have over 20 Instagram accounts that I have been building up. Most are over 2k in followers, and have been running for a couple months. They all Link to my adult web site but recently Instagram decided to block my URL. This has stopped all automation from bots on my accounts. I used to Bitly to change the domain so i can continue to get traffic but after a day they blocked all the bitly links i created.
    My Question to you knowledgeable folks is how in the world can I place a link into my accounts profiles so they route to the blocked site with out getting blocked again?

    You can't have my bots. Sorry :'(
    Make a new bit.ly and have it go to yoursite.com/somefile.php. In somefile.php, log the HTTP request variables to a text file.

    THEN make a new URL that checks for Instagram's scrapers' useragent and the IP they used. Now on your adult site, check to see if the useragent contains instagram's scrapers useragent or if it belongs to that ip range. If it does, redirect it to a tumblr blog or something, else just show your page.

    Their page scraper will follow location too, but that's a simple, safe way to do it.

    You might be able to use Bitly and redirect it to a legit site people trust. Then later on, go into Bitly, & redirect it to your site.
