100+ Instagram Hashtags That You Need To Be Using

You can use up to 30 hashtags on every Instagram post. You probably knew that, right? Although it’s officially popular knowledge, I’m still surprised to see so many people who are trying to grow their Instagram accounts not making the most of hashtags!

In all honesty, I definetely used to be one of these people. A combination of not knowing which hashtags were applicable to my posts and being shy about trying to promote my posts in the first place meant that I was slow to jump on the shamelessly-hashtagging-bandwagon. However, now I’m on it, there’s no jumping off anytime soon!

Photo-27-02-2017-10-15-56 100+ Instagram Hashtags That You Need To Be Using

Using the maximum number of hashtags on each of my Instagram posts is probably the number one thing that started to grow and develop my account. No longer were the poor people who follow me the only ones to see my posts, I was finally reaching out to those who would interact with what I was putting out into the universe.

After binging on Sara Tasker’s Hashtag Authentic podcast this week (really go and give it a listen if you’re as into Instagram as I am), I’ve learnt that although great pictures and content are still the number one priority when it comes to growing and improving your Instagram profiles, putting the effort into sharing the content, ensuring that the right people are seeing it, is a very close second.

So, after trawling around Instagram (and the internet), I’ve compiled loads of different hashtags and filed them into their most applicable groups for you to copy, paste and save your way into fantastic Instagram-growth-through-hashtag-useage! I’ll probably add to this post every now and then when a new wave of popular hashtags emerge, so maybe keep it bookmarked for the foreseeable future.
