    I see alot of you with 20k+ followers yes I use follow liker and have great content for my fitness brand but how do you really start getting those organic followers, do shout outs really work?

    Do you guys have a group here shout out for shout out?

    I'm lost my account grows about 500-1000 a week but is that normal?

    Shoutouts are usually not worth the money. My account grows around 500 a day. Usually a big factor could depend on the amount of followers an account has, the more it has the more appealing it is to users. Just mess around with the settings and the way you are scraping users till you find the gold mine.

    Good Luck.

    Would you mind sharing what niche you are in? I use follow liker too, but I gain less than 100 followers a day.

    Best way is SFS, but most people are either too lazy to do it consistently or they don't understand how to do it.
    Follow/unfollow method does work, but it will limit your growth, you gotta think outside the box if you wanna grow bigger faster

    2k-4k a month by botting is a normal rate of gain.

    Do you do photo SFS or caption SFS?

    For myself I absolutely refuse to do a photo SFS to keep my feed consistent. Only S/O's I do are captions for my buddies. Same story for customers, I just refuse their business if the photo doesn't match my feed.

    Try targeting hashtags related to your niche and check if you are hitting the top posts for that hashtag. If not then try a different tag.
    Been doing this for a week and im having big growth. I have a thread in the journey section. Will be updating my stats tonight. Been my best day so far!

    Your growth does not come from hashtags! This have been discussed many times here now, and the general consensus is that hashtags helps zero to none in terms of likes and followers. You might get a few from the other botters, but that is it.

    I can assure you if you hit the top posts in all 30 hashtags ranging from 2-10 million you will get alot of likes and followers. This happened to one of my posts yesterday and i got 6k+ likes and 1.5k followers. Ill carry on doing what im doing because its working.

    No, those tags brings you barely anything. You just hit explore which gave you the likes and followers. Hitting the tags is just side effect.

    Hashtags WORK. Pick the right channels and post. Helps if you're a hoe tho.

    How to do this? What does Instagram check to select a top post?

    If you are using really popular hashtags like 10mil + then there is less chance of getting to the top posts. I think if you are consistantly getting alot of likes on a pic it will go on the top posts page. Choose less popular hashtags to have a better chance of getting to the top. Then your likes and followers will come in. Like @incomesurfer said throw a few popular ones in too

    Its discussed over and over again and advanced users will agree it's total BS. It gives just a little bit traffic, nothing more, nothing less. How did you double your traffic? You went from 20 to 40 followers?

    The tags myth is totally debunked. I know 3 occassions where IG was a bit broken, the tags were stuck for 3-4 days. I was ranking 20+ tags in the 20-60M range.....you know what it gave? Nada, niente, nothing. Just an occasional like and follower.

    Choosing a less popular tag to hit top tag? Then what? There is a reason why its a small tag. Whoohoo, hitting a 500.000 post tag.....with 400 million users and billions of posts. Unless your niche is super super super specific, its useless.

    No I went from gaining 500 followers a day to 1000. Don't know why your so critical about this when it's working for me. Other guys are saying it works or does the advice of a newbie not count here? Maybe im just in a different niche to you. Or maybe hashtags bullied you in school. I dont know.

    Blame the algo, not your tags. Lmao, tags don't give you 1000 users a day.

    If I pick 30 1M tags, I would destroy all those tags guaranteed. But it would barely give me any traffic. You know why you hit all your tags yesterday? Because IG decided to send you to explore. THAT's giving you the traffic.

    I'm easily getting on any hashtags up to 100 million. Some days I don't bother putting any, other days I pick only below 1M to be super specific.... You know what? I get the same amount of likes and followers. Stop saying hashtags doubled you from 500 to 1000 followers a day, you just display your ignorance. You were featured on the explore page, that brought you the change in traffic not the tags!
