    After resolving my shadowban i'm back in the game. And it seems like my strategy works. My account reached 500 followers today and the post is at 410 likes right now. People are going legitimately crazy about it. Likes, comments, follows, people tag their friends.. the whole deal. Now this may sound dumb but, WHAT SHOULD I DO NOW!? :confused: I want to make the most of it, but is there a way to keep this engagement up? Should i post a nother picture now or wait until the storm is over? What is the best way to keep this peak alive as long as possible?

    Any tips are welcome

    You need to post as many as possible. Posting frequency is a key factor. Keep your content flowing and you will get thousands of followers easily. Just don't stop, don't wait for anything.

    Are you guys apart of engagement groups I could join? I have multiple 100k+ accounts and more in the 10k-30k range.

    I would say post as much content as possible as long as its good quality untill you get to around 50k followers with good engagment.

    Then post 1-2 a day and make those 1-2 posts high quality.

    How did you hit the explorer page so easily or what was your strategy?

    What are the requirements for explorer?

    Is it # of likes on a post? If you buy fake likes on a post, can that trigger the explorer page with IG's current algorithms? Congrats on hitting it!

    You're wrong. Go to instagram explore page now and check the first ten posts. I bet theres at least one post with less than 200 likes.

    I don't buy fake likes and i'm not in an engagement group. I just try to post pictures that are really compelling. I still have to test my startegy more, but that's not the first time that i get top post on almost all of my hashtags. I will share the strategy in the future if i can archive that consistently. What i CAN say is that the people i follow are handpicked and my followers are very targeted. Also my niche is full of nerds and geeks who i understand and know what they like. This helps enormously.

    There are numerous reasons why you could be shadowbanned, and yes you CAN get unbanned if you eliminate the reason (not if you have been caught botting or spamming i guess). For me all i needed to do was to remove the URL to my landing page in my bio. I guess i still need to build trust. Instagram is getting smarter by the day.
