This blog post is only relevant for a few months as Instagram always changes its algorithm but rest assured, if you are reading this blog post right now, it is still relevant. We will update it as soon as Instagram’s algorithm changes massively. Today’s blog post will cover the current Instagram’s Algorithm. We shall analyse the reasons behind a post going viral and how the algorithm decides it. Let’s get to it!
First of all, let’s establish that it gets activated based on the value of a certain post. The value comes from how quick and how much engagement a post gets. As we have repeatedly mentioned earlier, engagement can be split up into likes+comments+saves. These are the main determinants of a post hitting explore. However, that is not just it. It also depends on how quick you get engagement. Hence, posting when your followerbase is most active is a good strategy. However, that is not enough as well. That is why we provide you with powerlikes. It quickly supplies your account with engagement but we also ensure that quality is covered as well so we give you real quality accounts for each engagement. The better package you opt for, the more potential exposure you shall get. We shall explain the packages later on but for now, let’s focus more on the algorithm.
Some of you may be wondering whether quick engagement is key. Well, it is to a certain extent but there are posts that can be dead for a certain time, such as 5 hours with 1000 impressions but can later be picked up by the algorithm and hit 5M impressions. There is no way to predict this accurately. However, we set the powerlikes at an optimal timer such that they carry your post over to explore page smoothly rather than delivering all the powerlikes in a flash and then abruptly stopping. For your assurance and our satisfaction, we have tested powerlikes on numerous occasions in order to provide you with the best combo and a set time that will help maximize the performance of your post.
The algorithm however, looks at other things and adds value to the account. For instance, you may have done actions that led to a negative value being attributed to your account. For instance, mass follow/unfollow, abusing hashtags, spamming DM/Mentions/Likes/Comments are a very good way of restricting and damaging your account, so please refrain from those! It severely limits your account from hitting the explore page that depends entirely on the negative value you have been attributed to, by the algorithm. The algorithm sees old and aged accounts as something good; it helps those accounts hit explore easily and doesn’t limit these accounts as much as the new accounts. It is easier to hit explore page consistently with these accounts than with newer accounts as they get limited easily by a bit of spam or by post removals.
In conclusion, post regularly, use powerlikes but refrain from spam and associating with third-party apps or from using spammy links in bio and you are good to go!
