    Hey all,

    Anyone know a way to search keywords in people's instagram bios.

    This would be a powerful way to find users to target.

    If it doesn't exist, I may try to build something. Anyone interested ?

    Thanks

    So, you're providing a 'method' that is SO easy you could try it yourself and find out it wouldn't work.

    Yet you still post it here. I mean, why even do that?

    Honestly, I don't understand what you mean. Works for me?

    '"Travel the world with us." site:instagram.com' brings back nearly 600 results.

    This does not work. Since your account page also contains your most recent photo descriptions your search will go include post with the keywords as well. Your search will also return results only from posts and the explore page, from accounts that don't have said keywords in their bio.

    keyword(s) site:instagram.com"
    It seems to work, shows profile which use the keyword your in search of. Of course you'll also get Explore page results and images results but you do get what was asked for , Accounts with Keyword in bio.

    If your goal is to scrape users/user IDs, then my scraper has that feature. It does not save the bio however.

    This does work but you need a better query :)

    "Travel the world with us." site:instagram.com -site:instagram.com/p/ -site:instagram.com/explore/

    this query will ignore pictures and posts from explore page.

    Hello,
    Did someone finally make that tool that would let anyone search through instagram bios ? I would definitely use it.
