    Well, this explained why my Instagram engagement dropped the past month. I decided to report the problem to Instagram because of the trend and I didn't get a response back. So, I thought maybe if I reduce my hashtags to my most engaged ones, unfollow fewer people at a time, that it would help. The past couple days my post have now shown up on the recent list of popular hashtags I use and I'm now back in the game!

    My advice is if you find yourself in a Shadow Ban is to report the problem out of faith with a reasonable message, reduce hashtags, reduce unfollow rate or any growth tricks rate, and make sure your page seems reasonable to get off the ban.

    Mind you this is speculation, it could have been automatic but hey it doesn't hurt to try from my experience.

    Good luck, hope you're account is out of the dumps. It is hard to tell what triggers Instagram to slow engagement or ghost an account.

    It is! Instagram has a sensitive temperament. Even the most experienced and careful marketer can come across road blocks. But thank you!

    Anyway, prepare to open your wallet and yield some cash. IG is going to be fully pay to play soon for all monetized posts. It's only gonna be free for personal accts.

    I actually found out that a personal account on FB can be used instead of a page and gets tons of organic reach cuz it's suposedly not commercial. But I got 2 accounts banned already and one of them they forced me to change the name.

    So we can't advertise to our followers (customers) for free? For some of us, it doesn't matter. Just use other "personal" accounts to shoutout the business account. Boom. Catastrophe averted.

    My acc been completely inactive for a bit over a week. I will wait for two weeks and then see if it gets unbanned. Last time I waited for a week and no bans were lifted.

    How long did it take for you to become "unbanned" since you reduced your activity?

    About two weeks I want to say. The thing is my page has a lot of verifications. Linked to a facebook page, made it a business account, used a phone two-factor verification. Everything to show its authentic
