Why this method works?

Searching on Instagram itself is really time-consuming and you could spend days surfing just to find the right people because you have to open IG profiles one by one or you can search for hashtags and see, who will “pop up”. Google indexing Instagram accounts as different pages and everything that is written in the profile description is indexed as well. So basically we are scraping the web and it works like a charm.

One more thing…

Please, never use this method for evil: do not scrape profiles and add them to your email list straight directly or use them in any other unethical inappropriate way.  If you want to build a legit subscriber database, rather follow my recommendations in the email marketing section.
