How to avoid Instagram Shadow Ban?

How to avoid getting shadowbanned on Instagram?

So you started using Instagram as a social medium to promote your business and found that the #hashtags which you were using before are not working right now. You are experiencing less engagement on your post than before.

Guess what?
Instagram has come up with a new logic which shuts users accounts to surface if they continuously use the same hashtags over and over again. You will not receive any update from Instagram stating that your account is shadowbanned. You can just infer by taking a look at the engagement level on your post and the way it gets degraded.

You can follow 4 steps to avoid getting shadowbanned

  1. Avoid using automated app which is actually not legal to use.
  2. Don't use the same hashtag over and over. 
  3. For a Business account, check the insight and see that whether you are getting any user from hashtags. If you notice that you are not getting any visitor you might want to reconsider changing the hashtags.
  4. Don't use any website to identify the shadowbanned hashtags. Because the hashtags which is shadowbanned for me will not be the same for you.
