    Hi everyone, I have a couple Instagram accounts running in MP. I am using OGAds for my CPA offers but I am having a problem. Earlier today I was gaining a lot of clicks every hour, and getting good conversions, but now I am receiving almost no clicks, while all my accounts are still functional. Have the offers run out or something? I am not too experienced but it seems odd I would lose 95% of all my traffic suddenly even though I am still gaining followers on all my accounts. Can anyone with experience here offer some input? Sorry if this is the wrong area to post this. Thanks ahead of time!

    Maybe your web server went down or accounts got hellbanned or link flagged or you got a virustotal flag.

    That's what I was thinking, but it died basically instantly around like 3 and I am getting maybe one hit per hour instead of 10. It seems rather odd that all my traffic would die like that and stay dead all day.

    Check if the software truely follows, if the accounts are hosted, your webhost, landing page still ok?, proxies, etcetera. Check everything.

    All checked and everything is functional. Seems either my links are not working for other people or something is up with OGAds. Someone mentioned a link ban from reporting. Do you know of that?

    Clear your cookies & cache & dns. Load up your IG profile in your browser and see if you can navigate to your site as if you were a real visitor.If you think your site is down for other people you can use this tool

    You can also talk to your affiliate manager.

    Thanks, I just tried that. I can still see it. I am contacting my affiliate manager now. I don't see what else the problem could be because if the offers ran out that quick then how is anyone making profit??

    Most important question left is how much traffic were you sending before and how consistent was it.

    Not a whole ton as this was kind of a small test. I am still new to Instagram so I don't know everything but I have 8 accounts running right now and I was getting around 10 clicks per hour before. It's not a ton but I was getting decent conversions and I planned to scale up. Its odd though because last night when I started these accounts around like 9ish (eastern time) I was gaining the same amount before I went to bed. And then from like 12pm to 3pm I was getting about 10 per hour and then I basically flatlined now. I would think it is just different traffic with time but I gained the same amount of clicks late last night as I did at the peak today so it seems odd to have complete death of traffic.

    Sorry you're having problems, but also glad to know I am not the only one. I don't see how anyone can make 50 a day if the offers are gone that quick. To me it seems like I am just draining money and wasting potential traffic if this is the case.

    With that low volume of traffic, I would say it's normal. Nothing to do with offers being out of budget. But get a confirmation from your AM to be 100% sure.

    About 500 give or take across 8 accounts. Plan to have 25 set up by this weekend if all goes well.
