    None of my hastags show up in the search results, does someone know why this is happening?

    It's my first account so maybe I did some mistakes... I started it 2 months ago, I didn't use any bots, I didn't spam or sth, only follow/unfollow (200per/day)

    Anyone have the same problem?
    Does anyone know of a way for me to get my hastags working again?

    I'm sorry that it happened. Actually I don't know why it happened.

    7 days ago I started promote my first instagram account. I have never got something similar but my friend got this ban.

    It's happened after he bought 10 000 likes to his post.... it was when other his photo have had 100-200 likes. For give up his post to top.

    Hm... I check a few minutes ago and.. my account also have blocked to hashtag. I'm happy... I think it happened after I was banned by following....

    IG is switching algorithms to something similar to FB. When they notice commercial intent, organic reach goes to shit. Next step is to make you boost posts.

    Same here. Happened to me in September 2016 (didn't buy any likes, no spamming, nothing) and the problem still continues. Does anyone find a solution?
    I'm gonna report this problem everyday from now.

    Around september you say?
    Not growing as fast you say?
    Not reaching top posts you say?

    As explained in the other 100 threads....

    Not sure what algorithm you are talking about but this has nothing to do with the change of algorithm for showing posts in user's feed.

    This is regular shadow ban. No one except me and my followers can't see my posts AT ALL. I have public profile but it looks like it was private. My posts just don't appear in hashtags feed for non followers. They are completely hidden.
