How to Make the Most out of Hashtags on Instagram

Instagram Hashtags for Bloggers

I don’t know about you, but I feel like the new instagram algorithm has really changed my feed. My interaction levels have gone down and I hate missing posts! Either way, it is something I have had to come to accept it as it probably won’t be changing back… As a result I have had to change the way I use instagram- like making the use of hashtags!

How I Use Hashtags

I used to not actually use that many hashtags, but now I am regularly close to the maximum. You can have up to 30 hashtags per image. So make the most of it! I guarantee you will see an increase in the interaction you get with your images.

Another thing I recommend doing is putting your hashtags as a separate comment underneath the caption. It makes it all look a lot neater and your caption won’t get lost among it. Once you have had just two comments, then the hashtags will appear hidden but will still work for your picture. This is something definitely worth doing.

What Hashtags to Use

You can use websites like Hashtagify which allow you to view recommended hashtags around the topic you are searching for. This is quite useful as it can show the most popular ones to use that could result in a lot more interaction.

Below I have listed a few categories for hashtags I regularly use. Feel free to just copy and paste these into your phone notes so you can easily access them when posting on instagram. But also remember to try and adapt them to be as specific as possible with your image. Most of these categories have just under 30 hashtags, so there is still room for you to add a few of your own.
