    I'm new to Instagram game and I started a test account to see what processes I like before I do any scaling.

    I purchased a domain and I was hoping I didn't have to pay for hosting.

    First I tried to have the link in my profile redirect to a google shortened URL which then redirected to my OGAds hosted landing page. The issue is that when you click on the link, Instagram gives a notice that the link is malicious.

    Next I removed the google shortened URL because Instagram wont even let you post a goo.gl url in your profile, so I thought that was the problem. But I still have the same issue, when you click on the link in my profile its supposed to redirect you to the OGAds hosted landing page, but Instagram gives a notice that the link is malicious.

    Do you think the link/profile was reported? I only had 4 clicks before it stopped working.

    Or do I just need to buy hosting and host my own landing page?

    Thanks for any assistance.

    you cant post ogads links in your bio you need to use a prelander or cloaked redirect.

    also dont use bitly or google link shortners they have a very high ban rate.

    Damn I read a post like two days ago that said to use the shortener to obscure the link.

    Care to elaborate on what a prelander and clicked redirect is? I'll search on here but I never know what's out of date and patched by IG.
