    One day old accounts (with bio link) got suspended after 1000 follows :(
    450-500 follows per day with 15-20 sec delay

    I don't have any problems with the new accounts who are without bio link. I even tried following 900-950

    Well... there's a couple people on here who got banned also for using links. If you are a new account I'd advise highly NOT to use ANY links ANYWHERE on your page. The only acceptable thing is if you link another instagram account, like instagram.com/testaccount in your url, then I don't see why you should be banned. Anything else thats not instagram.com ... don't. Even once you get big, I do not advise putting store links in your url. Make a separate IG account for your store, then put the store link there. Make sure the store link isn't anything spammy either. You should be fine if you follow that.

    What's the point in having links if you have a new accounts with little followers anyway? You won't get much traffic until you grow

    I was doing fine with opening new accounts every day, following up to 7500 people in a week. Different people, different strategies.

    Thank you for the info OP, really appreciate it (I assume it was a dummy account to test limits).
    BTW 900-950 followings/day on a few days old accounts and no ban?
    Maybe I'm playing it too safe on my accounts.

    At the moment with one day old dummy account i can follow 900 people per day if the account don't have any link in the bio, which is useless for my strategy.

    Okay thanks. So it is true that IG is banning and limiting users with links.

    if you making the account on your phone you will be banned because instagram track phone id and numbers so make sure you are using proxy creating your accounts or you will keep getting banned.

    Because I had an account with no link and see got banned because I was making the account on my ip and using the same number

    I hope that help
