    Hi all,

    I want to drive instagram traffic to my website (with a 301 redirect to a clickbank affiliate product). Will I get banned doing this?


    Thanks in advance

    You should probably cloak that link redirection.

    Bit.ly will not hide the source of traffic.

    Sorry, I meant to say, will I get banned from Instagram? I don't think instagram traffic is against clickbank's TOS

    IG follows the redirect URL. So if the clickbank URL is blacklisted then you will receive an error and it won't allow you to use that short url.

    Had this happen to me a couple of times.

    I've been using a 301 redirect for a little over 2 months and I haven't had any problems.

    Then again, maybe I just haven't been busted.

    You'll be fine. I'm doing it with a site of mine by directing traffic to it

    That's where you should cloak.
