How To Find New Instagram Accounts To Target

If you are still searching on Instagram for new accounts to target for IBF or HyperVote, this guide is going to absolutely blow your mind!

Using a few basic Google functionalities and a clever SERP extraction tool, we can dump hundreds of high-follower accounts into the targeting settings.

The best bit is that it is incredibly easy to do and will literally take you 5 minutes if that!

Why Are New Accounts Important?

If you have been using our service for a while, you might have noticed that your new followers were flying in at the start, but after a few months, this began to slow down.

This is most likely because you are still using the same targeting list that you started with, and you have now begun to exhaust this list.

By updating your targets list and keeping the list fresh, you keep the bot engaging with new accounts, and you maximise its performance.

If you refresh this list every month, you are giving the bot brand new accounts to engage with every month, and your new followers will just keep on coming!

How To Find Instagram Accounts

Ok, let’s get started!

Step 1

  • First up, go to Google and make a random search so that you can access Search Settings.

  • Copy and paste the URL below, and name the bookmark (we used SERP Extraction Tool).
javascript:(function(){output='<html><head><title>SERP Extraction Tool</title><style type=\'text/css\'>body,table{font-family:Tahoma,Verdana,Segoe,sans-serif;font-size:11px;color:#000}h1,h2,th{color:#405850}th{text-align:left}h2{font-size:11px;margin-bottom:3px}</style></head><body>'; output+='<table><tbody><tr><td></td><td><h1>SERP Extraction Tool</h1></td></tr></tbody></table>'; pageAnchors=document.getElementsByTagName('a'); divClasses=document.getElementsByTagName('div'); var linkcount=0;var linkLocation=''; var linkAnchorText=''; output+='<table><th>ID</th><th>Link</th><th>Anchor</th>'; for(i=0;i<pageAnchors.length;i++){ if(pageAnchors[i].parentNode.parentNode.getAttribute('class')!='iUh30'){ var anchorText = pageAnchors[i].textContent; var anchorLink = pageAnchors[i].href; var linkAnchor = anchorLink + '\t'+anchorText; var anchorID = pageAnchors[i].id; if(anchorLink!=''){ if(anchorLink.match(/^((?!google\.|cache|blogger.com|\.yahoo\.|youtube\.com\/\?gl=|youtube\.com\/results|javascript:|api\.technorati\.com|botw\.org\/search|del\.icio\.us\/url\/check|digg\.com\/search|search\.twitter\.com\/search|search\.yahoo\.com\/search|siteanalytics\.compete\.com|tools\.seobook\.com\/general\/keyword\/suggestions|web\.archive\.org\/web\/|whois\.domaintools\.com|www\.alexa\.com\/data\/details\/main|www\.bloglines\.com\/search|www\.majesticseo\.com\/search\.php|www\.semrush\.com\/info\/|www\.semrush\.com\/search\.php|www\.stumbleupon\.com\/url|wikipedia.org\/wiki\/Special:Search).)*$/i)){ if(anchorID.match(/^((?!hdtb_more|hdtb_tls|uh_hl).)*$/i)){ linkLocation+=anchorLink+'<br />'; linkAnchorText+=anchorText+'<br />'; linkcount++; if (anchorText === undefined) anchorText = pageAnchors[i].innerText;output+='<tr>'; output+='<td>'+linkcount+'</td>'; output+='<td>'+pageAnchors[i].href+'</a></td>'; output+='<td>'+anchorText+'</td>'; output+='</tr>\n'; } } } } } output+='</table><br/><h2>URL List</h2><div>'; output+=linkLocation;output+='</div><br/><div>'; with(window.open()){document.write(output);document.close();}})();
  • Save the bookmark – it should now appear in your Bookmarks.

Closing Thoughts

That’s really all there is to it!

Once you have the SERP Extraction Tool saved in your Bookmarks, it is easy to perform a quick search every month and dump the results into Hyper’s targeting settings.

This keeps your targets fresh and Hyper working at maximum effectiveness.

You can change up the keywords so that you are getting slightly different results each time, and you can also navigate to the second set of 100 results if you wish.
