    I stopped using a bot about 2 years ago, but I still use the limit of 30 hashtags per post.

    According to IG, they allow up to 30 hashtags and mention this when describing their best practices. I typically do 3-5 in the original post and add the rest in the comments underneath. Why would they punish posters for taking advantage of the maximum amount of hashtags allowed?

    What if you use the same hashtags over and over BUT you remove them from all the posts via editing to post them in the one picture?
    For example, I post a picture today 19/Jun/2017 and I use like #25 DJ related hashtags, and then, tomorrow I'll post another picture with the same hashtags but first I'll remove them from the older picture. Is that ok?

    They consider it as spamming

    Reddit's shadowban prevents me from even participating. Even when I create a new account or use my 10 year old accounts no one can see my comments nor posts. Terrible!

    Have they released a statement to indicate this? I am still getting pretty solid engagement on my posts. I am more trying to prevent it from dropping in the future

    so to avoid shadowban , we should mix up our hashtags each post?

    How do you know if you've been shadow banned. I usually get 10-12% engagement but the last few days it has dropped to 7-8%. I can't tell if my posts suck or if I've been shadow banned.

    I have been shadow banned. It is 100% real without a doubt. You are mistaken. Photos come up on followers accounts under hashtags but on accounts where they are not following you they do not come up. I have tested this with three different accounts.....

    What happens after a month? Does your account go back to normal? I got hit with a few copyrights and my growth and impressions slowed down a ton. I got a bunch of emails from IG. They were videos. Its been about 11 days and im still in the same spot.
