Hashtags To Explode Your Following

hashtags

Hashtags are one of the keys to growing your Instagram quickly and organically and reaching your target audience. I read hundreds of blogs describing their Instagram technique and honestly, any that did not list hashtags had a significantly lower following than any that did. They are a very effective way to reach out to those who may want to read your blog, and it requires almost no effort. Simply list less than 30 (but to get the maximum engagement, I go for at least 25 for each photo) that are relevant both to your account and your photo. And trust me, as soon as you really start to implement this trick and use relevant hashtags for each post, your following, likes and comments will start growing and growing.

Using hashtags also allows your photos to be featured in the 9 photos that are kept under any hashtag you search. To achieve this, you must already have a relatively big following and frequently used hashtags (my favourites are #Flashesofdelight , #Teenblog , #Lifestyleblogger , #Darlingmovement and #Postitfortheaesthetic). However, my photo is featured in #Mentalhealthblog when I had around 1000 followers.

Here is my guide to growing your Instagram through hashtags, sorted into categories. If you’re a blogger and you’d love to see another category added, please comment below! I hope these are useful; feel free to copy and paste into your caption, but remember you can’t use any more than 30!

    Hi,
    I really want to thank you. I keep trying to boost my Instagram game. I appreciate these hashtags. They will help. I pasted them for future use.
    Maybe you can check out my blog. You and I are like-minded bloggers. I actually have an expert interview planned about Instagram tips. I blog about blogging tips. I also host 6 blogging events each month.
    I hate to leave a link, but people keep ending up at my old blog Reflections. I blog at http://mostlyblogging.com.
