    Hello everyone !

    first of all I want to thank all of you who post here in instagram section because i've been learning from everything i read, whether it's question or method or even some of your plans for future !

    i have a cars page, nothing serious, followliker been on and off for the past year, but since last December i start running it 24/7, 75 post 6.5k followers. Now, its been 4 days for this to happen to my account. i posted a video, with some hashtags i found someone using and i liked it. i usually get around 200 view per day/video. this time i got around 400 in the first day, second day 600 views, so i uploaded another one w/ same hashtags and in the second day it only got 400-ish views.
    today ( 4 hours ago ) i uploaded another video, guess what ? 1041 views and still counting !!
    but it doesn't appear in any of the top post of any of the hashtags ?!

    anyone experienced the same thing ?
    or anyone could explain what happning ? lol

    Best regards,

    @ninjah42 wrote about shadow banning, maybe it's worth checking out! not that it really matters if you are getting that much organic traffic. nice work OP and keep it up!

    Or maybe you're just posting more appealing stuff? There are so many other variables to consider.

    well, you right, i choose the cover for the video carefully, but why it not shown in the hashtags i put, or where all those viewers came from



    views for that video = ~1700 views so far

    If the cover is more appealing and stands out your followers will be more likely to not scroll past it and they will even start tagging their friends that doesn't even follow you.

    Nice work
