Problem with instagram post ID


Hi there

I'd like to get the post comment numbers from a specific instagram post.
When using the post ID, I get an Connector Error in SEO tools for excel. See Screen attached.

What am I doing wrong?

I'm using the PRO version 7.0.22

Thank you and best regards



The Post ID should be this string:

The ID you are using is called "shortcode" and is not supported for extracting comments.


Hi diskborste,

thank you. Where do I get this string from?



You can use the "Post Lookup" function in the Instagram Connector. It should support URL, Post ID and shortcode as input. However, I just noticed that all shortcodes does not work. Will release an updated version soon. In the meantime, I recommend using the URL:
