    Hello,

    I had a Instagram account that I was building up slowly. It was based on a specific niche. I was monetizing it with a link to a CPA offer on the profile page only. I wasn't water marking my pics or even posting spammy comments on others pics.

    One day it tells me my account has been suspended. I feel I wasn't doing anything spammy. Like I said, the only thing was one link to a CPA offer on my profile page...

    Anyone have an idea why it was suspended???

    If you link directly to your cpa offer you have to be prepared for a possible ban... maybe your acc have been manually reviewed. I think they use bots for checking link so its better to use lp and than call to action... create new acc and start all over, and dont have just one money acc- its better to have few (if you use shortners use different for for every acc)
    Hope it all makes sense to you

    They read the source of the link in your profile, if it contains CPA content, they will investigate it and ban your account. Cloak your links well to avoid this happening!

    I used a free web host with a re-direct script to the offer. Maybe they reviewed the link. Or maybe they were having problems with the free hosting domain.
