I’ve noticed 5 reasons why I’m getting less likes on instagram. 500% less likes than 6 months ago. Let me know if you don´t agree with any topic, if you want to add other one from your experience and most important: let’s find the solution for each one.
1 Using boots the wrong way. Instagram can recognize patterns (in the way you like, comment, follow & post). If your behavioral pattern on Instagram looks suspicious (like the one of a bot), you are putting your account in danger.
Solution: Always respect the limits for each action.
2 shadowban: hashtags don’t work anymore.
Solution: Check if your hashtags are blocked before you use them.
Avoid over-used hashtags (with millions of posts) and rotate your hashtags.
3 if you switch to an Instagram Business profile, you might experience a decrease in engagement. Does reverting to personal profile could increase the views?
4 I don´t interect with other IGs enough. The more you interact with an account, the more it will show on top of your home feed. Instagram will take note of which account you seem to “like” and “engage with” the most. So they will show you these accounts the most.
5 Months ago I spent two weeks without posting and my rate views never recovered from that time. Consistency is the golden key to grow on Instagram.
Also I use a like exchange APP. On instagram data my reach is lower than engagement. What is something not natural, do you think this hurts the organic engagement?
