    Hi,

    I recently bought an animals page with 26k (now 27k) but is averaging 1-4k likes, when I do sfs with accounts similars to mine (20-50k) I am getting almost or triple than they so I started to think that I could try to contact to bigger ones (those who are getting 1-4k) and try to SFS but the problem is:

    1) I have to justify that my likes are similiar than theirs despite the followers difference
    2) If I want to sell it, are there any webpage where I can put my likes average and not being discarded just for my number of followers?

    PD: I also have another account (nature-travel) with <10k and getting 2,5-6k latest pics but it is totally impossible to monetize something like that (with so many followers -I just started 3 weeks ago-) but at the same time I have the feeling that I am wasting an opportunity.


    Thanks for advising!

    1) Engagement is more important than followers. What you need to explain them is the net number of people seeing your posts. It doesn't matter if you have 50k or 100k followers if the net is the same.
    2) Just google for shoutouts websites for Instagram, most of them track engagement as well.

    Best Regards,
    Jaymien.

    How do you get such high engagement, on an account with so low of followers, I ran an account in the nature niche a while back and was getting 500 likes on a 15k insta, I can help you monetize if you show me how you increase your engagement. send me a pm if interested

    Those are some really great stats to be honest, a lot of people have huge number of followers but are unable to gather likes and activity on their pictures.

    You can simply join the S4S groups, there are quite some threads about them here on BHW. Get yourself added and trade with people who receive similar number of likes of their pictures.

    No matter where you sell it, you can put up the activity level in the description and let people know how active it is!

    Another trick, if none of the above seems to be working for you, you can buy some additional followers yourself and hike up the numbers after which you also will have high followers count and it will be a lot more easier to trade S4S or sell the page.

    Thanks everyone for helping.

    I already signed in 3 different shoutout webpages, let's see how it works.

    Chances are your accounts aren't legitimate. If you have less than 10K followers and get 2-6k likes then something isn't right. Celebrities don't get that % like ratio.

    Hi,

    from my followers I am getting more or less 5% engagement. The other 80 or 90% likes comes from top features in #nature #igers and other TOP hashtags.

    Of course I am not a superman getting 90% engagement...and as I said in my journey, I know I am in a spike thanks to this features but suddenly it will drop and I have to take this opportunity. In fact, today I am noticing a little drop in followers.

    Using tops tags like #nature and #igers would only have a negative impact on your account and those tags are too many photos being posted and your photo will not get viewed.

    I have seen similar accounts like yours e.g a 150K account having 30K likes...I looked into the likes and there were many situations where I saw groups of 50 likes in a row all in alphabetical order. That only means ones thing...fake likes.

    With all due respect I don't care who you are..if you have 9K followers and each photo has 2-6k likes.. Your account is not real.

    I have to agree with this. Getting so many likes with 5% engagement is unreal, considering that's only thanks to tags.

    I use 20 middle hash and 7-10 top. Already said in my journey.

    About fake likes and followers, if I have to prove something (which I don't need to) I have absolutely nothing ilegal or illegitimate to hide. Just one user from this forum knows what happened and explained to me (I am so f*ckng newbie here) but this doesn't mean I have to explain everyone.

    If the admin or whoever from the administration of this forum want to check my likes (and not every post has 2-6k, only the latest ones) I don't have any problem.

    I came here looking for help because of the difference between followers and likes, if I was buying likes don't you thing it will be easier if I will also buy followers and then the problem will be resolved?

    I don't want to deal with nothing unreal and that why I came here for help. But this is what I am getting.

    As far as I am concerned this will be my latest post regarding this topic unless someone from the administration asks me for the account name in order to check its veracity, which I think I don't have to but anyway.

    Thanks.

    I think it is possible. I talked with him in private and his account has real looking comments. My opinion is that when you have a small account is much easier to be in the popular hashtag pages if you buy a shotout or two or if others good account interact with your small account. He has bought a shotout and probably other pages in the same niche have liked his pictures and started following him. The result is --> his pictures in the popular pages --> More likes and More followers

    So that's it, there's no way to have that ammount of likes naturally. Something triggered it, they're either fake or helped trough a shoutout, but no way you can reach those values by just starting a new journey.

    I already said I did two shoutouts last weekend and then magic happens...thousand times. Read my journey before.

    Sorry, my bad then, must have skipped that part. But that's the reason.

    well, I quickly read through your journey but since it was a bit hard to read it carefully due to the format I somehow missed that shoutout part, too.

    since you achieved that due to shoutouts it doesn't mean it will happen naturally in future.

    Also, I don't think adding fake likes gets you easily to the top hashtag page, pretty sure IG checks it (haven't tested it with fake likes tho). Seems like there are many other factors which are important for you to reach the top posts in the hashtag section, something like likes from "trusted" / legitimate accounts, likes from similar accounts interested in your content (which you achieved through a shoutout).

    These things help us understand IGs algorithms even more.

    Has any1 achieved being in the top hashtag posts (checking through official instagram.com website) with fake likes?

    Top hashtags are a bit of a mistery, but there was a guy few months ago doing this sort of thing. Got on almost all top hashtags using 1k auto likes.

    He was a user here in this forum @petirthunder but he got banned because he provided an horrible service.

    (You can find him in the shit list section).

    Anyway it was working, and it has been working for years. Maybe we don't know all the variables and the exact formula, but usually it works.

    Best Regards,
    Jaymien.
