    Hey everyone,
    So I have around 200 IG accs that I want to upload links to start directing traffic to my own website. I recently learnt (through a massive mistake) that I need to mask/cloak the links so that IG can't see that all my account links are sending traffic to the same page.

    So I am considering using clickmeter. Has anyone used it for this purpose before?

    Originally I was only using clickmeter just as a link/conversion tracker, but I have since realised they also have a link masking/cloaking feature that allows you to hide your destination URL and instead only show the tracking URL.

    Does anyone know if this is enough to get past IG? Or does IG also look at the content of the destination page?

    I am super new to all this, so trying to figure out what it is that I actually need to hide/mask from Instagram? Is it just the URLs alone that I need to hide? Or do I also need to hide or cloak the content as well (in which case I assume I need a more advanced cloaking service, right)?

    At the moment my game plan is this:-
    - Bulk buy 200 domains from somewhere for cheap (not sure where yet, any recommendations?)
    - Load those domains into clickmeter as branded tracking links.
    - Mask all the tracking links to show only the tracking link in the browser address bar (as well as source code), rather than the destination link (my website)

    This way (I think) I can direct all traffic to my website homepage, and mask my website link with that of the random 200 purchased domains. And also be able to track all click throughs at the same time. Also means I don't need any prelanders.

    Or am I missing something here, and maybe IG is actually smarter than that and will check the content on my homepage, and use this to realise all links are going to same place?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
