Hashtags have been a hot topic on Instagram lately. Do they still work? Do I need to switch them up? Do I use five or 30 hashtags in my posts? Should they go in my caption or in the comments section?
Lots of questions and quite a bit of confusion. So I thought I would address these issue to hopefully clear things up and get you on the right path.
First of all, yes, Instagram hashtags still work. In fact, they are the best way to increase your visibility and engagement on Instagram. But why are so many people still not seeing results with hashtags?
Well, it probably has to deal with your strategy. Cramming a bunch of hashtags in your post without really thinking about it isn’t going to do you much good.
I’d like to give you my four hashtag rules so you can create a winning hashtag strategy of your own!
