A hashtag is a number sign (#) followed by a word or phrase (e.g., #nofilter). It’s used to mark keywords in digital media. Such as the website Twitter, which allows posts with those words or phrases to be easier to find. Some hashtags have also been used on Instagram and Pinterest.

There are many uses for hashtags, which can be helpful when seeking out pictures similar to the subject matter. They’re also great for helping people who share common interests stay up-to-date on what their friends post about. Usually, hashtags utilize the following two letters: #webms and #hashtags.

Instagram is a pictures-only form of social media. You are only allowed to post pictures. And you’re only permitted to send a minimal amount of text in your post. It means your image needs to speak for itself and that the text in your post must be used wisely.

Using hashtags on Instagram, you can make sure that your posts get seen by a broad audience. Because people are looking specifically at hashtags – and not just at their regular feed. If you want people to see what’s happening with your brand or business, going through these trending hashtags is an essential option for extending the reach of your content.

Here are a few types of popular hashtags used on Instagram. So let’s check it.

Location Hashtags

People are sharing their current location in the form of a hashtag. You can get your followers to send you a direct message and share the details of your location, usually on a map – so that others can see where you are. You could also use this method to find out who will be at an event or where a big public gathering is taking place in the same town.

Niche Hashtags

If you have a popular hashtag in your niche, you can use it to find out who is competing with you and who you’re up against. You can also use this hashtag to get your products or company feedback. If people are using your hashtag, chances are they have something positive to say about what they’ve seen. Make sure that you engage with these people and share their content.

Daily Hashtags

It happens when you’re following a hashtag being used daily – wildly when it’s trending. You can monitor this hashtag to see which images get shared daily. If you can answer questions or speak to the people using these hashtags, they might be willing to follow you back and share your content.

Acronym Hashtags

If you want to use the popular trending hashtags, but your brand name is a little bit complicated to spell out, you can use a hashtag that is made up of acronyms instead. This will ensure that people can see all of your content, from the more casual users who can’t remember your full name/company name and from more serious business users looking for specific brands or niches.

Product Hashtags

If you’ve created a specific product or a service that you want to market, you should consider using hashtags associated with this product. You can use this hashtag as a marketing tool and get people to ask you about it, see what others are using it for, and start following your new account.

Rebel Hashtags

Suppose you’re interested in how other brands are using the regular social media hashtags, but don’t want to go through the hassle of creating your own. In that case, you can request rebel hashtags in exchange for access to their popular hashtag stats.

Temporary Hashtags

If you’re promoting an upcoming product or service promotion, you should make sure that you’re using temporary trending hashtags. It will allow you to excite your audience in anticipation of your product or service release and expand your reach on Instagram throughout the promotion period.

Emoji Hashtags

Instead of using text hashtags, you could use emoji hashtags. Emoji icons can be used on Instagram and other social media networks but should not be used as the primary form of communication. You should always ensure that your content is understandable, using only emoji icons. If you can’t explain what’s happening with your images and videos through a combination of words and emoji, consider using regular text as an alternative to save you from any confusion or miscommunication in the future.

First, select a popular hashtag that meshes well with your brand, product, or service and is relevant to the content that you’re planning on posting.

  • Search for the hashtag you want to use by typing in the search bar on your Instagram app.
  • Click on the hashtag, then click “See posts” in the top right corner. It will bring you to a list of recent content using that specific hashtag.
  • Browse these posts and click “View more” at the bottom of each post to see more options.
  • If there are other related tags at the end of a post, tap on “View more” to get an idea of all the tags currently being used by people who recently posted this first tag.

Final Words

As we’ve seen, hashtags are a great way to expand your reach across Instagram. If you’re using popular hashtags, you’ll be able to get more exposure and attention for your content and brand. However, if you’re planning on using trending hashtags on Instagram, ensure that the content is relevant to your posting. You also want to ensure that your brand or product can mesh well with any hashtags you’re thinking of using – so do some research before choosing the right one for your business!
