How to hashtag on Instagram without it showing

So, you want to know where hashtags go on Instagram? We’ve got the answer. 👇

For a while now one of the biggest debates in the social media world was where to put hashtags on Instagram posts.

But, last month Instagram finally revealed the answer to that question, providing some detail on where it wants us to put our hashtags for maximum effort. Their exact words were: ‘Use relevant keywords and hashtags in captions. For a post to be found in Search, put keywords and hashtags in the caption, not the comments’. 

So, in short, this means write your captions, leave a few lines, then add your hashtags. It might not look as clean as putting them in your comments, but at least we know they’ll work. 

Other top tips to help you get seen: 

👉🏼 Make sure your handle and profile name are a clear representation of you/your brand 

👉🏼 Include keywords in your bio that tell users exactly who you are and what you offer 

👉🏼 Include locations in your bio
