Banned hashtags

Some hashtags are banned from Instagram. This is to avoid having sensitive content on the platform and although hashtags such as “models” and “petite” may seem harmless, posts including these banned hashtags may not be seen by many. Make sure to check your hashtag before posting. You should avoid using them if you see the notice “Recent posts with #… are hidden” as these posts may not comply with Instagram’s Community Guidelines.

 

Finding hashtags on Instagram

You’ll need to find several hashtags for each of your posts. This can be a time-consuming and difficult task, as your visibility depends on it. For example, you can analyse what your competitors are doing on Instagram. What hashtags do they use and do they fit you? There are also many tools available to make this task easier. A tool like Hashtagify can help you find the most popular hashtags.

 

Use Instagram Analytics

Don’t hesitate to use Instagram’s statistics tools to help you analyse the visibility and performance of your posts. In the statistics, you’ll be able to see the number of impressions on your post, and the number of impressions from hashtags. If this number is low, you may want to change your strategy and find new hashtags to use!

 

Finally, to be informed and to be put in touch with brands and influencers for collaborations, don’t hesitate to sign up to the Influence4You platform.
