    I've noticed that while my account is not fully banned from hashtags, I do seem to require like twice the engagement needed to "trend" so I presume something is going on. When I ran my last post through the Instaban checker it did showed the post was banned. Although I was trending in some of those tags (checked on incognito mode) .

    For a good amount of time this year I did the 60 tags trick. Which I think ultimately is what is working against me now.

    Fast-forward to today I deleted all the tags I had on my posts and I'm going to try adding a set of tags only to the description. I read somewhere that 20 is the new magic number, is that true?

    Note: Noticed something once I cleaned all my post from tags, my latest post went straight to the top of the trending spot on the location page, previously when the post had the tags it was maybe in the fourth spot but after deleting the tags went straight to N1.
