I run a 50K medical related page, where I repose work by doctors and credit them and everyone is happy.
Lately the engagement on this page dropped like hell: a picture gets around 200likes…video 2K views (usually pictures around 1.5K-2Kl ikes, and videos used to get around 30K-150K views)
I’m not sure but it was more of a gradual drop, the actual quality of the posts has stayed consistent, I upload once per day and on the story too.
Before a week, I thought maybe I had been “shadowbanned”, by using copy/pasting the same hashtags (not sure about the legitimacy of that), and so gave my page a “break”, by not posting anything…I came back and the engagement is still low.
Any idea why? How can I fix this, should I just keep posting with this low engagement and hope it rises? It looks really bad and i’m afraid of losing followers…
I had used FL until 15K followers but haven’t used any automation since then.
Use a different set of hashtags each time. Use all features of instagram (stories, igtv, etc) and go through a lot of your followers and view their stories, like their latest post and maybe even comment. This will help your engagement. (Of course you could do this through a program too).
Just make it so it likes your own followers posts from the past week. Instead of putting target accounts in to like, put your own account in. If FL also does story views, let it do that for your own followers too. A shadowban is real, just stop using hashtags for a few weeks, or only use a few.
