I havnt done anything different.
I use to post a reel and I would get 200 - 4.5k views now my reels are doing 2 viewes on average. im obviously shadowbanned or somthing. but the question is why? what did I do?
Is it because I am using a VPN changer perhaps?
I would suggest not to use vpns.Tik Tok picks up on these things, having a SIM card is enough to let tik tok know your location.
What about youtube? I upload from my laptop though?
VPN is a red flag for tiktok, but for some of the VPN services there is the service that you can buy for extra 10$ or so your own dedicated IP, that is what usually works. Because casual VPN changes IP multiple times a day, and that triggers Tiktok.
So yeah best setup - US Sim + VPN + Dedicated IP
