    This question is mainly for those using bots such as Xgram, Botstagram, Instadominate, etc.

    With Instagram taking extreme measures to combat spam, I'm curious as to what kind of comments are you now using to fool their system.

    The reason I ask is because I thought that I had a fool proof method to oeave comments on other people's account without necessarily spamming them. My method was real simple because I had no link in the profile I was directing them to as I wasn't trying to sell anything. The account that I pointed to was more than legit as it was my real account that I'm trying to brand. It has a lot of activity and I respond back to all comments on my pics.

    What I used to do was simply leave a comment on pics that I would target saying nothing more than just my username, atusername, and surprisingly this worked and gained me close to 25k followers in a little over a month.

    Now with these new changes, I can't even do just that anymore. I thought that by me just tagging myself in other pics and by eliminating potential spam keywords, since I wasn't using any, that I was playing by the rules. Now I've noticed that some of the comments I'm even doing manually on my OWN pics are being ghosted which doesn't make any sense for me to not be able to leave a comment on my OWN account mentioning myself, which is what motivated me to do this post.

    I'm just curious as to what commenting strategies are you guys using with this new and improved Instagram system and maybe this thread could be of use to many by us just throwing around ideas.

    The bot I used to get my followers was Botstagram but I'm looking for another as Botstagram has severly disappointed me with their lack of an update although I can see why because of all the IG updates but I see other bots updating all the time which makes it frustrating.

    So if you're going to participate thread, if you don't mind sharing what bot you're using as well, and also the amount of accounts you're using to pull off your method as well.

    Thanks!

    I will do.

    The shoutout thing really does work! I had set up a contest for this month where I'm shouting out a few select individuals randomly and whoever pic gets most likes, I'm giving them $50 at the end of the month. Hopefully this will increase my follower count as a result of it.

    But you're right, I don't want to irritate my followers, lol.

    What bot are you using? I'm using InstaDominate and so far so good.

    Was using Botstagram til their bot stopped updating to keep up with the IG changes.

    what works with instagram is by acting like a real person. I haven't met a sane person that goes around telling everyone for a free iphone.

    yea, they might be banking hard for now, but that persons method is very short term.
    he will be banking $0.00 per day when instagram AKA facebook puts in some new serious blocks.
    facebook does not mess around anymore.
    you need to think long term guys or else you will never be truly successful with internet marketing.

    I agree! I am acting like a real account and am only giving away an iphone when we reach 100,000 followers. It's a contest to keep my followers engaged. I got the idea from all of those fake accounts offering fake iPhones. I figured that if I offered one free and real iphone when all of the other accounts were offering hundreds of thousands of fake phones, that I could definitely work that angle. Right now I'm at a little less than 25k followers and all followers are active.

    I'm thinking long term as the profile link on this particular account is very legit with no CPA offers or anything like that. It's just a link to our online magazine which is very professional. We have a legit office with over 25 writers on staff.

    I'm using IG to brand my websites and not necessarily make money directly from spamming people. I hope this goes a long way and people can see that we are legit.
