    So I am a youtuber and have been growing my IG account in my niche I got pretty popular in my culture and am suggested user on the bigger pages in my culture. I lately had been wondering why after january my account reach had gone drastically down. My account was about 6 months old. I'd be getting around 1,300 likes on a picture yet my reach was only 4,000 for example and this was when I was at around 9,500. Crazy high engagement but wasn't seeing any new follows or likes from new users it started being rare to see new follows unless I followed or liked someone pic. I was using mass planner and followed around 300-500 per day. I would manually turn it on and off and some days I would be lazy to operate the software so it was random probobly only used it 3 times a week and was not overboard on settings. I was stupid and sometimes would have the software following people and at the same time I would be browsing or responding to a DM but was doing this for a long time and my account was growing so I didn't think much of it. Stupid I know I am kicking myself now lol.

    I tested some hashtags from a non followed account earlier and confirmed it as well all I saw were fans using my # i should have been top posts for plenty of the various # i was using and wasnt in search either yet when I looked at it on my account I was the number one post thinking I am killing it.I even checked a family member who used my # and tagged me in a post and @me it didn't show after I unfollowed him but when I followed him i was there. i think that is the most mindblowing part. So people who buy shoutouts and are shadowbanned are getting ripped off

    1. will making a new account more than likely be shadow banned as well? I used my phone and was on 4g and wifi in the past and live at two houses so I am wondering if say the wifi at one house is shadow banned and one isn't? Too many variables.
    2. Since I did seem to have quite a bit of dedicated likers would following them On a new account and claim my last one might be "getting hacked" be a solution?
    3. Is my youtube URL shadow banned as well since it was in my bio and would putting it in my new account get it banned?
    4. If I constantly shout my newly made account out on my shadow banned account would that cause it to get deleted?
    5. My cousin is willing to give me his old instagram account that he hasn't used in years would that be better than making a new account? Only problem is it has 300 followers which im sure are dead and follows like 400 people
    6. Do i need to use a whole new proxy and is my phone probobly banned as well?
    I am really worried since Alot of my youtube traffic comes from IG and it is how I get clients for my personal training as well that is why I am so despterate

    On the positive side I think it may be a good thing for me If on my new account I can get those few thousand dedicated likers & possible have some thing as high as an 80% engage rate and blow the account up in my niche again and this time I wont be shadow banned. I don't mind popping addies and doing this all month to get my following back manually lol.

    Please help guys I'm so sorry for the long post but I even quit my part time job because I have been getting enough revenue from my services But now I can no longer promote it. I think this is an eye opener for everyone botting
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Shadowbanning has become quite a phenomenon.You need to research a bit as there are methods and articles all over the internet.

    The solutions(if at all) are usually either 'reporting hacked' account through the official form or temporarily disabling your account for 4-5 days and then enabling it back.

    I've posted the fix here in the forum. 100% works hashtag issue fixed.

    Review every post you have on your account (yes every post) and if have ever post hashtags as first comment then delete that comment.

    When you have done this try a new upload and use tags ONLY in caption and i would be staying under 20 tags.
