    What is your opinion for using hashtags in the bio of Twitter? Somebody told me to use as many keywords as possible, with hashtags, so you have a better chance your account will be found. To me 2 or 3 seems to be enough, looks too messy and spammy otherwise

    Are hashtag terms like a search engine when looking for specific content?

    In the same vein (and out of sheer curiosity) is there a hashtag etiquette going yet? Like, should I (we) preface posts with hashtags, throughout the post in place of words, or at the end?
    For instance,
    Ex1: #Hashtag Post
    Ex2: Post #HashtagInPlaceofWord Post
    Ex3: Post #Hashtags

    Jeff, I have been experiencing this. One month ago our family moved here to Maui, Hawaii. I had been posting pictures of course. In the last two weeks I started using the hashtags #Maui #Hawaii and I’ve doubled my Instagram following, it’s crazy! It also falls in line with my brand of living, not existing.

    Thank you for your post. I’d like to add that hashtags, particularly local ones, are an important part of your press strategy, too. People think of ‘PR’ and ‘social media’ as two separate disciplines – but unless they are completely interconnected you won’t get the most out of either.

    Thanks, Jeff and your guest author Hilary for this succinct guide to using hashtags. I certainly think I have been guilty of straying into ’3 hashtag land’ so this will help an errant hashtagger!

    Great piece, Jeff! No surprise there.

    I’d be interested in your opinion about using a hashtag in tweets for brands. For example, I almost always try to include #MyHelpSource in my tweets with the intention of encouraging people to click the hashtag to find other tweets.

    I want to be promotional without being pompous.

    Thank you for sharing your expertise!

    Hi Jeff,

    Don’t over do it, and HT enough to target. Find that delicate balance. Prosper.

    Thanks for sharing! I can’t help but roll my eyes when I see professionals inappropriately using hashtags. Using hashtags in every word in your post discredits the information you’re sharing. More people need a guide like this to follow.

    Well I sure wasn’t aware that use of the HT increases visibility, and I now know not to over use it as well. Thanks you.

    Good article! I can see how this info can be relevant specifically with Twitter, but maybe not so much with Instagram. I use Instagram extensively and hashtag paragraphs are accepted and commonplace, and not spammy.

    However, the trick is to put your hashtag paragraph in the comments, and not in the caption. This will hide the hashtags after about 10 comments, and will help keep the caption clean and readable. Also, doing this will allow you to delete your old hashtag comments to use new ones and bump your photo—IG has a hashtag limit of 30.

    With Twitter, it’s best to use one or two, or maybe three max hashtags.

    See my attached photo, notice there are no hashtags in the caption, and the hashtag paragraph is buried in the comments. The hashtags you see are recent hashtags I used for regrams and bumping, but those can be deleted in time.

    Thanks for the article!
