Do hashtags still work for you on Instagram?
Yes, they do. Hashtags really bring new audiences to my posts.
Hey! It is crazy how I was just thinking about the issue of hashtags on Instagram and I stumbled upon this discussion. Honestly, hashtags worked really well for me initially but recently, I have been observing that hashtags curb my post reach instead of promoting it (might be a blatant assumption from my side) Is it because every common hashtag is so heavily saturated with posts that the posts using the hashtag get suppressed? What is your view on it?
@vanshika_chaturvedi Yeah right! Use combination of few common and rare hashtags. I think that may help you with the reach.
It all depends on what kind of hashtags you are using. Just stuffing your posts with hashtags won't work. Find 8-12 such hashtags which don't have large impressions but are used regularly and fit them accordingly in your posts.
