My account got shadow banned. I used to get engagement from Hastags. But since last 3 post I didnt get enough engagement. None of engagement Comes from hastags on my last 3 posts. Can anyone tell me how to solve shadow banned ? I have read somewhere That I need to remove all the hastags from the last 2 weeks posts, Stop posting, like, comment, DM, story etc. All the IG activity I should Stop to take shado banned back. Can you guys give me other solution ? By the way, I had 6-7 sets of Hastags and I use different set all the time whenever I post.
And During Shoutout, I give same hastags to other user for my post. I used to do 2 post shouts a day.
I remember reading from another thread about this guy consistently getting “shadowbanned” whenever he posts hashtags in the comments. Apparently he was able to resolve his issue by placing his hashtags in the caption at the time of post rather than afterwards in the comments. Where are you placing yours?
People really need to give up on this shadow ban nonsense.
Every time someone gets zero or close to zero exposure from tags = shadow ban. There is ZERO proof there is such a thing.
Yes, you can get your account limited. But, more often than not it has nothing to do with your hashtags. And yes, you can use banned hashtags that might get you in hot waters. But, that is very different situation.
Exposure from hashtags depends on 100s of factors - overall IG account, niche, tags used, when you post, how fast you got engagements, how natural they are, etc. Any of these might leave you with no exposure from hashtags.
Does that mean you are shadow banned? No.
Is there a tool that can tell you if you are shadow banned? No.
Why? Because they base it on a single factor - does your post show in the recent section of the tags you are using. Given that every user gets a personalized hashtag section, checking it with one account means nothing. Plus, super active hashtags get 100s of posts every second and those tools have a limit to how deep they can check.
So, in short, get off the shadow ban craze and look for a problem / solution somewhere else. If you dig deep enough and keep it objective, you’ll easily find it.
One can find our simple put account name on a hashtag
Post and you would see your account under the hashtags.
Post again with a banned one and look under that hashtag for account from a non following account …
Notice account not seen anymore
see that early rise in the beginning and then that dip toward the center? both happened when a damn post got reported and removed. It has the same effects as using bad hashtags. it limits exposure – I lost followers both times – however, this is a strong account and picked back up 14 days later now a 200+ a day average. @damian24 just had this on his account too and stuck in that 2-week time frame.
This limiting also happens after Pv, and EV -if not a new account --( if you change your phone number or email, your okay – they are just asking for confirmation, )
also limited if you had a disabled account and it just came back online – your on watch so to say.)
Instagram says one thing – the facts do not support what they say… simple as that.
edit…that account never used or uses hashtags
now imagine if you used a hashtag thats banned –
same effect with one difference… the account stays stuck until the offending hashtag get removed see, if limited exposure was not real – this would not happen
