    I am using Mass Planner and Follow Liker to post pictures on Instagram. But when I post a picture with hashtags from that software the posts are getting bumped down in the hashtag (below pictures that were posted hours before). I am NOT talking about the "top posts". I am talking about the Most Recent posts in the hashtags.

    For example, the 40 most recent posts will be from the last 20-30 minutes and then below that, will be my post from a few seconds ago. But normally the post from a couple seconds ago would be right at the top. Why are mine getting pushed down? Has anyone had this happen before?

    I am running about 30 Instagram accounts with 75 different photos going off on them every 7 minutes. I've tried adding new accounts and new pictures but it doesn't help.

    I'm having kinda the same issue, except mine just don't show up. It's weird, I've been analyzing and testing for the last few days and I can't find any correlation between pictures showing up on their hashtags and them not. It's like some are randomly shadowbanned, I don't get it.. Also using FL, but it did the same thing when posting myself.

    I'd assume your accounts either flagged as spam and they are pushing your posts down or you're uploading the same picture(s) over and over again which IG notices and automatically filters lower in the results to prevent the hashtag from being spammed. Does that seem plausible based on what you're doing? Kind of hard to say without knowing exactly whats being done and used for the picture.

    It's not about your accs! It's the new update released 1 week ago. They are trying a new ranking hashtag system.

    Interesting, did they release a statement about this or did you just notice the change? I haven't noticed this with my stuff.

    I noticed when I did mass uploading :) then I came to bhw and I saw a few threads about it...
    To rank on hashtag you need engagement from your followers :)

    well, their first change ever was when they decided to rank photos on hashtags based on when the picture was posted and not when the hashtags were added. :D

    I haven't noticed that yet, but I have noticed that outta nowhere I got quite a few likes on some pics, while others didn't even get the same attention. Might be due to being shown on explore tab, tho.

    I usually like mixing up the hashtags and using different captions for my pictures, even when mass uploading, I'd definitely do that.

    But, what we should keep in mind, most people adding hashtags to their posts actually do it copy and pasting with those hashtags apps, so I guess it all comes down to trying different things until we find out what really works. Changing hashtag order & using different hashtags sometimes seems to be working, although I select my fav. hashtags and just mix them up in their order.

    Regards,

    It's seems depends on the Instagram account age

    I agree that it is most likely to do with a change of the algo. I am seeing a slight decrease in the number of Likes, and also it seems harder to obtain new followers.

    Although, I have automated uploads I am currently not using any other bots, and would by BHW standards be considered whitehat.
