If we want to increase the number of our fans, we are also forced to pay attention to whether we use an adequate number of hashtags or in what cases we use it at all.
How much is the ideal amount
A total of thirty hashtags can be used in a post, but many say that can make the post look like spam. Some say having five relevant members is the most elegant solution, but if you want to get real results, eleven or more is recommended.
If the only goal is to increase the number of followers, we can take advantage of all thirty members, as it is the most effective. Previously, in 2018, even a trick could use up to 60 hashtags, but the platform has since realized and fixed that bug.
If the 30 pieces would not be enough, we can add a few more in the comments, even in several comments. There is no difference in the function of the hashtag when present in a post. In some cases, it is even more advantageous to use tags in comments, as if we used a prompt in the post (e.g. Sign up!), The reader may lose a lot of the hashtag and forget about their task.
You can also hide the 30 tags so that the post doesn’t look like spam. All we have to do is put 5 dashes in front of the members, so when someone looks at it, they will see “…” next to your name. It is important not to hit space after the dashes.
Unfortunately, commenting on hashtags for your post is not enough in itself. Most of the time, it’s just a suggestion of what other tag to use, as it’s extremely individual-dependent. It’s worth looking around on social media for popular members, observing what the competition is using, and thinking about what’s relevant to our site.
According to an Instagram analytics tool, these are the most popular tags:
However, the use of popular tags also has its drawbacks because it attracts users of the “follow-up method”.
