You can put links in Instagram comments

Apps / software Instagram: insert link in bio


Would you like to add an external link on Instagram to attract more users to your website? As you may know, it is not possible to post external links in captions or comments. Most social platforms allow you to share links to your website in many places. But Instagram has greatly reduced the number of places links can be posted. So, you can only share these on your Instagram bio. And there is a reason for this.

Why can links only be shared in biography?

Instagram has special guidelines for posting external links that take the user away when they open Instagram. If you put a link in a post, you won't be able to tap it. In other words, the link must first be copied and then pasted into a browser and opened.

Instagram's decision to limit the places where external links can be posted is controversial. But obviously there is a thought behind it: This is to prevent users from doing excessive self-promotion or spreading spam on Instagram. This type of spam occurs mainly in comments as well as posts. Therefore, no clickable links can be placed there. You can only link external content in Instagram stories and the biography.
