The MUST KNOW Instagram Hashtag Trick
They can appear a bit messy, but the truth of the matter is they ARE EFFECTIVE!! Therefore we use them. Unless you have gained a mass amount of followers over the months/years etc, you are still on the growing your engagement or following train on the instagram platform. And in order to do that, you need your new bestfriend le hashtags. The instagram algoritm allows for content to be marketed & found using hashtags, a trend which initially started on twittter and spread it's wings across the social arena, and specifically with instagrma, the more the merrier. But how do you hide them in order to maintian a clean feed.. especialy if your're a bit OCD like me... :true story"..
It's quite simple. Comment breaks. What are these, it a simple hit a the return button a couple times & adding a few period points into the equation and voila, magic happens. Seeing that you are allowed 30 tags per post, you would want to have your photo less spammy. Adding comment breaks allows for that & here's how you do it.
Type your comment with at least 5 points into a note pad or memo on your phone. This will create a sentence like effect tricking the algorimth to believe that you have actual comment content in there. It is IMPORTANT to hit the return key immediately after the point in order to NOT create a space effect.
STEP 1- TYPE YOUR DOT
STEP 2 HIT THE RETURN KEY & REPEAT STEP ONE UNTIL YOU HAVE TYPED 5-6 .S
And simply hit publish. A simple three step process. This can actualy be done in both the caption & the comment section your posts as I demonstrate on my account.
