Ever heard of “shadowbanning?” It’s when Instagram hides your posts from being seen within certain hashtag searches. So if you use hashtags to promote your posts, they may not be showing up in a search for that tag. The horror!
Some reasons your posts may be shadowbanned include using bots to gain followers, using too many of the same hashtag, or using a banned hashtag. What to do? There’s a website that allows you to search your username and find out which of your posts have been shadowbanned (Find it HERE).
