They’re blocking links that appear on a number of accounts within a short period. Shortened links – such as bitly – are suspect since it’s unclear what you’re linking to. Funny, fake website names may be blocked (don’t use a fake URL). Domain names using elements or misspellings of Instagram have been blocked.
The only place Instagram allow you to use a link is in your bio. So you need to make sure you’re sending your users to the right place if they want to click through. Most businesses link directly to their website’s home page. Others link to a specific landing page – a blog piece or service page for example.
Instagram users can, and often do, share links by cutting and pasting text links in captions and comments, but there is no direct linking allowed on Instagram. If you paste a link into a post, your followers have to copy and paste the link into their web browser address bar.
There are currently only two ways to “earn” the option to add links into Instagram stories: Either have 10,000+ followers or have a verified account. … Instagram decides by their own (elusive) guidelines who is worthy of a verified badge and only gives it out to “some public figures, celebrities and brands.”
