What is wrong with my Instagram, no one is commenting!
Updated: Oct 27, 2020
If you have been posting as you usually do on Instagram with engaging photos, keeping up with your hashtags and links in comments then I am sure you have been wondering what is going on! Suddenly the number of viewers have reduced and the interaction seems to have become non-exsistant! Don't worry, its not you! Instagram has changed their algorithm and we have a couple of suggestions to help you get back on track.
Here are our 6 top tips:
Post at least twice a day - Instagram will boost your posts to your followers feed if they see you are posting more often in the same day
Divide your posts - photos and videos in the morning, stories, comment and liking posts later in the day, the more times you are on Instagram interacting the more reach you will receive
Make sure if anyone comments on your posts that you respond to them. Instagram is trying to build a community and if they see you are connecting and building relationships they will replay you with showing your posts to more followers
Don't delay with replying to your private messages, if you take too long, Instagram will think you are not active on their platform and delay showing your posts to followers
Don't over use and repeat the same hashtags - Instagram has started to consider this as spamming. So limit your hashtags to 5 per post and keep them unique
Do not edit your post’s caption or location tag for 24 hours! We are not entirely sure why but doing that will lower your chances for it to be seen
Let us know how you get on with implementing these top tips and if you have seen an improvement in your followers starting to interact again.
