I though I would share one beneficial strategy for getting your pictures the maximum exposure possible. Following these instruction will get your pictures in the Top Post section under BOTH Popular and Less Popular hashtags. This method works for every Instagram account. Whether you have ZERO followers and likes, or if you have thousands.
Lets Get Started!
The main point of a hashtag is to increase your exposure when users search pictures under specific hashtags. When a user does so, they will first see the Top Post section which contains 9 pictures which received the most amount of love, then if they keep scrolling they will see the Recent Post section which has a cluster of pictures.
Top Post Section
This is the section we all want our pictures to be in. When a picture is in this section, your picture will be seen my thousands if not millions of people. Not only that, your picture will remain in this section for a while. If you have ever noticed that one of your pictures received 5x or more likes compared to your other pictures, then its most likely it was featured under the Top Post section.
Recent Post Section
This is the section where every picture is shown in when they use that hashtag. The chances of getting exposure from this section is slim to none since your picture goes further and further down the list every time someone posts a picture with the same hashtag after you. If you used a popular hashtag like #happy #smile your picture will be gone within a blink of an eye. The only way to be successful in this section is to use hashtags that have above 5k posts, and under 500k posts (Better to say on the low side). The lower the posts on a hashtag, the longer your posts will remain visible.
These hashtags have the highest amount of views but also has the most amount of posts making it very difficult for your pictures to get lots of exposure unless they are in the Top Post section.
Less Popular Hashtags
These hashtags have a lower amount of views every day, and also has a lower amount of posts every day. This makes it easier for your pictures to get some exposure, and its also easier to get your picture in the Top Post section.
These hashtags usually have a higher amount of views compared to Less Popular Hashtags. Although they are semi-banned they will still show the Top Post section, and maybe a few Recent Posted pictures.
1. I always use 30 hashtags with every post. More hashtags, more chances of getting your picture seen.
2. Mix your hashtags. Dont use all popular hashtags, and dont use all low popular hashtags. You need to mix it up. Your hashtags should include Popular, Less Popular, and if your niche hash lots of half-banned hashtags add some of those also.
