Guide To Instagram Hashtags

Guide To Instagram Hashtags

I started my Blogs Instagram around 10 months ago. Pretty green as to how the whole thing worked. Yes, i was aware that we used Hashtags to put our pictures into categories. What I wasn’t aware how important selecting those hashtags would be. Being new I listed my pictures as normal and selected hashtags with the biggest amount of hits. Reason being I assumed that these were the most important ones to select. Yes, a portion of that is correct but for me with a small following using bigger Hashtags meant as soon as I listed a picture it disappeared almost straight away. I have also had a few friends who have followed suit after me and I thought compiling a list of hashtags would help someone relatively new to Instagram and wanting to grow their reach and following. So 10 months on what I have learnt from my experiences as a smaller Instagrammer. What tags have I listed in my Guide to Instagram Hashtags?

Instagram Hashtags


I have compiled a list of Hashtags to go with numerous Niches. I have selected those with smaller hits to try and ensure our visual content is seen by a wider audience. I have been doing this myself for a few months now and have had much better results, but for someone new to the scene I thought I would share some hashtags that I have found to ultimately make life that bit easier. Always try and change the tags that you do use, as in don’t reuse the same ones over and over again. Instagram is a hard nut to crack at times, what with the new algorithm and the follow and unfollow games. I truly believe if you create great pictures and engage within your Niche and with your followers, even smaller accounts can do very well.





I hope some of you may have found this post helpful. I will of course add more to this in the future.
