    Hey fellas!! I have been working with free social media marketing (free instagram traffic) and I have a problem about my affiliate link. When I send my affiliate link in direct message - instagram block the link and if you try to follow it, it shows a problem : "That page does not exist or it was deleted"

    When I go to this link from google - it`s all alright with that,so the problem is instagram anti-spam, not a link. I tried to use bitly,but it still show me the same error

    Anybody know how to come over this?

    P.S. > If anybody didn`t get what I mean when I say affiliate link - it is a refferal link that was given to me by a CPA network

    Try using a landing page on your own server for the link. The social media bots may not follow and see the real link.

    Use LP on your own subdomains. And change subdomain, when it'll be blocked

    Good Advice here
    By all means
    Avoid putting links anywhere
    on social media
    Direct traffic to a opt in landing page
    Hooked up to a autoresponder
    Or
    Direct traffic to a website with the offer
    Instagram and Facebook are notorious
    For blocking accounts with links
    And you could
    Redirect link with a domain name
    ClickBank allows this to my knowledge
    Good Luck to You:)

    Hello dude, why can't you try another traffic source as Facebook? or wan't you look out a way to buy legal traffic from Instagram too?

    Then i assume you could reach the purpose by using groups on Facebook, that are related to what you are trying to promote and it should be going straight too.

    so simple , go to goddady buy a domain then go to >> domain settings (domain manager) and apply the Domain lock (make it ON) , click >> Manage DNS >> in Forwarding section choose (Forward with masking) and put affiliate link in "FORWARD TO" >> keep the Permanent (301) >>> enter the Title , Description and Keywords (PRESS ENTER AFTER EVERY KEYWORD) >> check "Update my nameservers and DNS settings to support this change" box >>> click save
    >> it's safe link now you can send it wherever you want

    No it isn't -- I can curl that link and see the redirect NP $curl -I -L -A "user_agent" "URL"
    Maybe, the Facebook flunky doesn't know how to? You would think that is automated there with a script -- that is real simpleton ...

    Post a link -- I'll either prove it or I'll STFU :D

    a 301 is NOT DNS function -- it's a webserver status code

    You could always create a one page site on wordpress or blogger and utilize the respective link that way.
