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
 
Interesting feature if this is true, wouldn't be surprised with all the updates and cracking down on bots they've been doing lately. Reddit has being using the shadowban for some time now and it's really effective for them.

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!
 
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.
 
Can we see your data? So far you've made a lot of claims about the inner-workings of Instagram's anti-spam algorithm, but you haven't provided any evidence of it. You were already asked once for evidence by another user and all you did was respond with a website that links to a login panel.

This all seems really suspect as I've likewise tested this myself and am almost certain that shadow-banning doesn't exist on Instagram photos. It definitely exists on comments, but I've done almost all the of things you said are supposed to trigger a shadow ban (on multiple different accounts) without anything negative happening comparatively.

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.
 
Instagram really hates us :D :D
Thanks for the heads up my friend.
You are amazing :)
