Why are the hashtags you use on your Instagram not attracting visits?
Hashtags are a tool that if used correctly become an excellent ally, they are not only part of Instagram but are also used in other social networks such as TikTok, for example. These help enormously to make your profile public and viral, but if you don’t use them in the right way maybe it won’t work as well as you expect.
In a publication you have the freedom to add up to 30 hashtags, no more than that because otherwise the publication does not take place. When choosing these hashtags you have to be a little selective so as not to fall into the mistake of generating spam.
Spam occurs when a hashtag is used too many times, and therefore does not produce the expected result at the time of publishing something, apart from this you have to be careful not to always choose the very popular ones because then your publication will be forgotten quickly to be replaced by another.
Hashtag spamming is something that does not help your publication to stay positioned in social networks, thousands of people use the most common ones every day and this causes a photo to be replaced almost immediately by another one. Among the most popular ones you can get #TBT, #Friends, #Love, #Mood, etc.
