On the basis of what we have discussed about Instagram suggestions so far, one thing might have become apparent- Instagram suggestions are largely based on what you do rather than what others do.

However, the core purpose of suggestions remains what we have already discussed: to connect you with people you might be interested in. And while this purpose is mostly achieved by showing suggestions based on your activity, suggestions can sometimes come from the activities of others, too.

Therefore, while you might not be suggested to each person you search for, the algorithm can take into account repeated similar activity from the same account.

In other words, YES, you can be suggested to a user if you search for them or visit their profile repeatedly in what the algorithm considers a relatively short period.

Now, if you have been visiting someone’s profile for some time now, you might be wondering if there is a way to opt-out of being suggested on other people’s profiles. Well, the answer, to your benefit, is a big YES.
