    A ton of people have this issue and I know a lot of people that are extremely discouraged because of this. I will keep it as short as possible. If you're trying to make money on IG with spam accounts and you're getting huge ban waves, your URLs could be the problem. Instagram has spiders that follow links and if you were to put the same link on many accounts, they will all get banned instantly.

    What's written in this thread is to help you stay as safe as possible.

    First thing: 301 redirects do not work to cloak a URL. (This means using bitly, etc). Instagram will detect what is on the other end of a 301 redirect so you are not fooling anyone by using a bitly to mask a URL.

    Also, never put a URL in your bio that other people are using. This means landing pages that other people could be using (such as premade OGAds landing pages, or landing pages of any CPA network).

    You have a few simple methods to get around this. (There are other advanced methods that seem like redirects to anyone clicking on the link, but I'm keeping it simple in this post to appeal to everyone)


    1) If you have some $$$ to spend:
    You can buy some cheap domains from somewhere like namecheap, godaddy, etc. Scrape the landing page you want to use by using a tool like HTTrack or Darcy Ripper or Google a different one yourself. Upload this site to your domains. Then, get creative with linking it back with your CPI or CPA offer (For example, if you're using OGAds like most people doing CPI on IG, make your own custom content locker and use it on your websites). Then, advertise your domains in your IG bios.

    2) If you don't have any $$$:
    Simply make a website on a free website builder. You can use weebly or wix or any other free website builder that comes with free hosting. Make a simple page that has a button that says something like "Click here to continue" and make the button redirect to a premade CPI or CPA landing page. These website builders will usually give you a domain like username.weebly.com which is ugly, so you can go make a custom bitly link and redirect the bitly link to your username.weebly.com. Then, put your bitly link in your IG bio.

    For 1) or 2), use the same domain on a maximum of 5 accounts. If you really want to be safe, use 1 domain per 1 account.

    If you have any questions, drop them below.

    I myself have around 150 accounts, I do this method and it doesn't get me banned. You need tenured accounts to do IG CPA effectively. Private proxies as well.

    If it's some small website, one sub domain getting flagged equals the main domain getting flagged (and all sub domains on that domain). The reason using sub domains on something like weebly works is because when there is an authoritative domain, IG will never flag it. For example, no one is going to get banned from putting a link in their bio for a YouTube link or Facebook link because IG isn't going to ban a domain as popular as facebook.com or youtube.com no matter what. But if you're using sub domains on a domain that you just bought and it's not an authoritative site, the whole domain and all sub domains will get flagged.

    Haha, gotta look out for everyone. We all were broke once.

    This isn't a guide on how not to get banned by Instagram. This is a guide on how to put URLs in bios effectively. Truth is, I could write a whole book on how to properly bypass Instagram's algorithms. But for your concern, I'll tell you 4 most common ways that your accounts get banned. Master these and do your own testing to find what works and I guarantee your bans will go way down. 1) Age, 2) How you post pictures, 3) How the accounts were made, and 4) URLs (which the 4th is addressed in this thread).

    Thanks for the tips friend. :)

    Adding links instantly on fresh accounts is suicide if you want long lasting accounts, you have to wait. If you want to be completely safe, wait 3 months before putting in a link. Otherwise if you're doing churn and burn, you can put it instantly or 2 weeks after.

    No problem guys. :)

    What do you mean by tenured accounts?

    Already bought a domain, still don't know how to link my OGads pre-made landing page.

    Tenured accounts meaning aged accounts. I can help you out via Skype if you'd like :).

    i thought you were going to talk about some code to prevent instagram bots.

    i dont believe the 'click here' button works if it's an html button. IG still sees the link. maybe a javascript button can make a difference.

    this however gives me some inspiration. i havent really put a lot of time in ogads, and my last attempt with 12 accounts all got banned quickly.
    i use my own domain. subdomains actually got me instant bans.

    i simply edit profile, add link, throw it in FL, without posting any photos. the accounts were bought 2-3 weeks ago. i dont think my proxies are the problem. it's almost like using same domain (including subdomains) in 12 accounts while my domain is only 3 months old is the problem. however, my 1st 2 accounts using the same domain are still alive after 3 months. using direct ogads link isnt a problem. i wonder how to get my own domain 'trusted' by IG like ogads domains (many of which are supposedly new too).

    Thanks for your reply, but i have some more questions )


    Really to say i do not feel the difference.
    Lets say i will not use subdomains at all
    In first case you recommend to buy domain and use it, in second case you say that new domain is not authoritative - because its new and it will get flagged - so what to do ?

    If u mean not to create sub domains at new domain (domain which been recently bought) - i guess i understood you

    Thanks )

    I tried doing 12. After that it doesn't allow you to add more.
    But anyways using TLDs now. You can try buying XYZ domains at namecheap for only $.15 a year! Worth it!
