    @littlewebdragon If you're going to produce the same actions for which he received the Shadowban, then most likely - yes

    Okay, so I've been posting the same 30 hashtags for the last 6 months daily...

    1) How many should I post instead?
    2) Should I cycle the through hashtags? Say have 50 and post 5 different ones each post?
    3) I've just noticed a competitor has the same followers 45k, uses no hashtags and has about 3-5k likes where as I'm getting 2-3k. Could hashtags be the reason?

    1. My opinion is no more than 10 tags for a post. The tags should correspond to the topics of the post
    2. The more randomness in tags, the better
    3. You should test posts without hashtags and understand that reason or not

    I don't think so ... I used to fast follow people but is till get the same likes on my content. Maybe they haven't applied it yet. or maybe you haven't gotten your points to be dropped to 0 .

    • Permanent exceeding of the limits on outbound speed likes/subscribers, or suspiciously quick unfollowing. For such a user is "awarded" removal of three points on the scale of iDoT (three of ten).
    • Use the same hosted by several publications in a row. The systematic violation of trust rating profile is reduced approximately by three points iDoT;
    • Regular complaints from other users Instagram's profile or publication. Administration Instagram showing zero tolerance if user contributions annoy other people – for it the user loses about 2 points on a scale iDoT;
    • Too often the publication of a "fresh" profile – sill minus two points for iDoT;
    • Any text spam (in direct or comments) – the removal of two points;
    • The use of a special software for automatic content – the removal of 1 point.
    "

    What is your source for this?

    I've been testing this one the last three posts and it seems to be in the right direction. All three posts are getting more likes (although less comments) with 3 to 5 hashtags than previous ones with 30.
