    I have instagram account with 170k real followers.
    I started it from 0 followers and never bought any fake followers or something else

    I post pics with hashtags according to my niche and getting no more than 1k likes
    Daily I'm getting about 500 new followers.

    I have seen a lot of times accounts in the same niches with 50k followers and 2-3k likes per photo
    Pics quality of that accounts is not better than mine

    So what is wrong with my engagement ?

    used follow/unfollow to get followers?

    Then it's your bad targeting, bad posts.

    Can you share your link by pm so i can take a look?

    Check PM

    Yes i used follow/ unfollow.
    According to my niches its almost impossible to use bad targeting) I think you understand why
    Also i scrape only active users - users who liked the "same" pics (pics in the same niche) and follow them

    Maybe that is the reason
    Any ideas how to filter scraped users I'm going to follow from bots ?

    Try to follow people that interacted on posts of targeted accounts last 5 minutes. And exclude words in username. Like free,like,get,win,free,f4f and stuff like that.
