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.
Go to your profile page and click on “Edit profile.” It will bring you to a form field where you can see your name, username, website, and bio. Click on the space beside “Website” and simply copy-paste the link you want to drive traffic to. Press the checkmark, and Instagram will save the changes you’ve made.
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.
