Frequently asked questions

analytics

Where does the data come from?
The data is accessed via Instagram's open browser interface. Data and information that are only visible via a login can therefore not be called up. This information includes, for example, activities, the names of the followers, the names of those who like and comment.
How is the data processed?
We conduct various metrics that describe the performance and design of the posts.
What is the comment conversion?
Comment conversion is the ratio of comments to likes. The basic assumption is that the barrier to write a comment is higher than that of giving a Like. This means that a high comment conversion is an indicator for a high stimulus to interact. For example, entries informing about contest, in which a like and comment usually have to be submitted, have a very high comment conversion. Formula: Commentconversion = comment / likes
What is Instagram engagement?
The Instagram engagement records the visible interactions, i.e. likes and comments, under a post and puts this in relation to the number of followers. This is an indicator of the real reach, which leads to interactions. Formula: Instagram engagement = (comments + likes) / number of subscribers
How is post frequency calculated?
The value represents the time interval at which the observed profile is posted. The distance between the last post and the time of the query is also taken into account!
How does language detection work?
The speech recognition takes place via a probability calculation to what extent the image description contains words from various languages. If the determination cannot be made clearly, for example, the text is too short or ambiguous, we state "mixed". This also happens, if the captions starts with a hashtag or usermention!
How is text quality messured?
The text quality is assessed by using the Flesch index. The fundamental assumption is that short sentences with short words are easier for the reader to understand than long sentences and words. The result of the calculation is a value between 0 and 100, in which a high value speaks for an easy to read text and a low value for a hard to read text.
How many free analyzes can I create?
A daily number of ten reports should not be exceeded.
The analysis page is structured in a way that our service based on your IP only acts as an intermediary between Instagram and your device. It is important to emphasize that your Instagram account is not affected! If our service refuses to work, your IP (not your account!) Is blocked for about 3 hours on Instagram and on our service.
What is the request Limit?
We limit your search volume to a maximum of 10 requests per hour so that we can offer a consistent performance to all visitors who use our free services. After an hour you can use the service again as usual.

How are the matching hashtags created?
With an image analysis, objects and texts are identified insofar as they are clearly recognizable. If the hashtags are aligned accordingly, it can be assumed that the Instagram algorithm, which works with a similar image recognition, does not interpret these as incorrectly selected hashtags and thus reduces the reach.
What does "outdated" mean?
We understand this set of questions as no longer up-to-date due to a restructuring of Instagram. Here are e.g. the "matching hashtags". That was the attempt by Instagram to categorize an uploaded picture and to calculate the relevance of the given hashtags.
