The Best Instagram Hashtags For Bloggers

instagram-hashtag-header

We’re always saying that hashtags on Twitter are a great way to find like minded bloggers, but have you thought about using them on Instagram as well? We experimented with using different hashtags on posts, and we saw a huge increase in likes and comments compared to when we would just post the captions!

If you don’t like putting hashtags in the main caption of your image, then a nice neat way to include them is to comment on your own picture with the tags – they’ll still get included in any searches, but it makes your feed a little tidier when you’re looking at the images with the captions!

Check out the tags before using them to make sure your content fits, and be aware that using some of these tags may mean that you’re giving permission to different people to regram your images – if you’re not happy about that, then don’t use the tags! You can use up to 30 tags on any one image, so be selective!

  • The tag #bootsminiclub is for Boots

(With parenting photos, you might also want to have hashtags relating to your childs age, or nickname so you can easily find pics of them. Obviously, this is up to you – if you feel uncomfortable in sharing those details, then don’t do it!)

Photography tags

#abmlifeiscolorful #dscolor #instagoodmyphoto #colorhunters #colorlove #colorcolourlovers #justgoshoot #colorventures #ThatColorProject #makeyousmilestyle #dressingthebump #maternitystyle #pregnancy

(If you know any of these tags have been created by people that haven’t been mentioned, please let us know!)

Of course, you can make up your own tags – having a tag to link together all the pics of a certain type is a great idea! – and tagging the brands involved in the picture means they’re more likely to see it and regram to their audience.

What tags do you use on your Instagram pictures? What works well for you?
