Best Hashtags to Gain More Followers on Instagram

 

Let’s talk about hashtags, guys. It’s the end of 2018, so we are sure everyone knows what a hashtag is, but not everyone understands how to use them the right way, like the best hashtags to increase followers. Just in case you didn’t know, hashtags are, mainly, ways that you can categorize your Instagram posts among the billions of pictures on Instagram. It makes it easier for users to discover your posts and more quickly for other people to see your content. Instagram now lets you follow specific hashtags. So, for instance, if you hashtag your outfit of the day picture with #ootd, then anyone who follows that hashtag will be able to see your picture on their feed, even if they aren’t following you already.

How many hashtags are enough?

How many hashtags should you use? Where should you put them? Which hashtags are better to use? Don’t worry; It’s much easier than you think. First, you should know that people don’t like the way that tons of hashtags look in your captions. To avoid this, you should post your picture with a regular caption, and paste the hashtags from your clipboard to your first comment section. Posting them sooner is better for you as your content is arranged in a hashtag based on published time not by when the hashtags are added. We use a particular format that makes the hashtags just appear as “more comments” on your post. This way there won’t be a massive paragraph of hashtags showing on your caption when people scroll through their feed. It will give it a cleaner, less obvious look than if you just posted a billion hashtags in your caption field.

How to use hashtags in a comment?

Don’t get distracted by all of those random dots. The dots push the hashtags down in the comment, so the entire comment is too long to be“shown” on the actual post. In plain terms, this is just the way to use to hide all of those hashtags. Feel free to copy and paste the format below into a comment under your caption to do this on your own Instagram posts.

So how many hashtags should you use? By statistics, the proper number of hashtags to use on your post is somewhere between 10 and 15.Instagram allows you to use up to 30 hashtags, which definitely looks like over kill to me, but don’t be frightened to use that many. It only improves your odds of being discovered by users who weren’t already following you. We recommend quality versus quantity as the more hashtags you use, the more they become dragged out and distant from the over all relevance to your content.

Below we have outlined some of the most popular categories and niches on Instagram and have mentioned which hashtags are the best to use to reach more followers.

  • Fashion and designs
