What is hashtag?

Before getting into the subject, it is important to understand what hashtag is. They are keywords, which are always accompanied by the old (#) game symbol. Its use aims to organize and categorize photos and videos on each social network.

How to find the best hashtags for Instagram?

The secret to whether hashtags are useful to your brand is to choose a small amount of relevant hastags. I’ve selected here the 4 best tools to help you find the best ones. See below what they are and what they do.

1. Tag O’ Matic

This app is my favorite of all time and I use since 2012. I was unhappy for a while when I moved from android to Iphone years ago, in 2014. When they didn’t have the Iphone version yet.

What I love about this app is that it is super simple to use and displays hashtags related to keywords searched.

Functions like searching for related hashtags, saving favorites and seeing search history (paid version) are available in the app with up to 3 searches per day, if you use for personal instagram is super worth it, but if you don’t want to see Ads and want to have access to the history, just paying for the app, which here in England costs £1.99.

2. IQ Hashtags

More than just a hashtag search, IQ Hashtags brings more functions. A very simple “app” with very good functions and for free, such as profile analysis, banned hashtags, search for hashtags, just registering. In the photo I signaled what you can use without paying.

Registration is required on the platform to use all functions except to check banned hashtags.

To leave as an app on my phone, I save the website on the start screen and then it looks like it’s app. ?

The goal of the app is the same: find the best hashtags. But the difference of this application, is that it has a hashtag creator. That is, you can type or paste a text and it turns all words into tags. This function is ideal for those who need to make posts by mobile.
