    I will give it more time. Why 2 days with low cvr?

    In the time-period 03-09 I had 1500 unique visitors to my LP according to Google Analytics. But only 830 impressions, 457 clicks and 92 conversions. I dont know, don't really trust the numbers.. Have tested the locker myself, twice! Got click but no conversions. Don't know if it was flagged because it was me, or if they don't pick up all conversions. I'll keep sending traffic, but if this keeps going on I'm changing network. With numbers like this I would be better of with normal offers instead of app installs, now cvr but high paying offers.

    Have your manager confirmed they are looking into it? That was over the past 7 days, so not that great.

    Update:
    I have mainly been looking at cutting down time per account today, and that has been working great! I am now able to profile "unlimited accounts" at once. I am talking about changing username, name, bio, link and profile pic :) Either with writing the info one acc at the time or using spin syntax for all the accounts at the same time.
    Currently running 5 accs with this method, if they are running fine for a day or two then I will be able to scale really fast.

    Edit: Now I just need to find a way to automate the EV process

    That's great! I currently have an interval of 25 seconds between each account setup and I'm happy with it. Since I don't plan to setup 1000 accounts per day I just leave the bot doing the job for a couple minutes.

    I was worried about updating too many accounts in a short period of time, I am sure it will raise some red flags at the IG HQ if I update 100 accounts with similar usernames. I will see if I can manage to set a delay between each account :)

    It's getting worse: 81 46 3 $1.97 6.52% $0.04 - That's so far today. Look at that CVR, that's just funny...

    Poker and beer with some friends tonight, so I don't have the time to change back to the captcha locker. Will do that tomorrow and see if everything is back to normal.

    I see a lot of people complaining about OGads, but would they really risk their entire business for a bit of extra money? Could be an error, but I would've expected them to make an announcement about it, and also make sure their users gets paid for the days with the error.

    One of the best Instagram journey threads currently going on here on BHW. Quite amazed with what people are continuously make using Instagram, and I plan to start one Instagram business myself.

    Good luck to OP and others trying to earn money with it.

    Hi op,


    How did you cloak your LP and redirect the crawlers to other sites?

    From OGads:
    Low CVR Issue Updates - Lately many publishers have voiced their concerns about having abnormally low CVR. We have finally found the cause and implemented a fix. Here is what happened…

    Instagram updated their android app on March 8th https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.instagram.android&hl=en http://i.imgur.com/mcl1M4g.png This is right when we started to hear complaints about low CVR. In this new Instagram update they updated their internal browser. This new browser update broke app links that redirect to the play store. This means that a user would click on the offer, register as a click in your stats, but never be redirected to the app because of Instagrams new browser. This only happens when an app link is opened in a new tab (EX: target=”_blank”). Once we found out that this was the specific problem (thanks Ama) we edited all of our mobile locker themes to not open offers in new tab. All mobile themes have been tested and all android app links now redirect properly on Instagrams new browser.

    This could also have affected other traffic sources like Facebook who could have adopted a similar browser update.

    I can't say I'm happy about how they handled the situation here on BHW. But I am glad they found the problem :)


    Thanks :)

    Thanks :)

    So that was the issue :) Now you'll see how much you are really earning. Don't change to the captcha locker yet.

    I won't :) It's already looking better! I mostly get traffic from the US, so the clicks normally starts coming from now on and thru out the night. Stats so far: 63 Clicks, 15 Conversions and $5.60. Should pass 10 bucks today. Some of my IG accs are doing unfollow now.

    Thanks :) Good luck, wish you all the best!

    Update:
    So I can already see improvements after OGads fixed the problem. Stats from yesterday:
    184 88 23 $7.94 26.13% $0.09

    Stats so far today(40 minutes in):
    8 5 4 $2.09 80.00% $0.41 - Keep that CVR and I am a happy man! haha!

    Generated 540 usernames now, that way I have a long list to pick from. Hate wasting time on finding a username I have not used yet.

    Will be scaling now :)
