H is for #Hashtags!
Hashtags categorise your content and make it more discoverable. But how many should you use?
You can post up to 30 hashtags on an Instagram post and up to 10 on your Instagram story - but it can look spammy if you stick them all in with your post itself. So it's often 'cleaner' to highlight one or two in the post itself and put the rest into the first comment box under the post. If you want to hide them in your story, pop a sticker or gif over the top of them. Make sure you don’t use same thirty day after day - you’ll be penalised! Mix them up and keep them relevant to your post.
They’re used less in Facebook, just one or two per post but it’s a subject of great debate as to whether they have any affect anymore.
In Twitter use up to three max.
Do you have a hashtag you use more than others? Or any questions on Instagram that you would like me to try and answer for you? Let me know.
Wowza 😮. .
