STOP Using Instagram Hashtags

12 replies
Hey guys I just want to tell you something that will save you time and give you much better targeted results. Please STOP using IG hashtags. Spammers are targeting tags really hard so when you think you have new followers, most likely they're all SPAM. I just want to give you this one time. The best way to get mass followers is by Liking others photos and they will cost likely follow you.

    The best fastest way to get a follower is to follow someone else. Hashtags work so I'll keep using them. You can't let the spammers get you down. They are everywhere. Does that mean warrior forum should shut down because there are spammers in Internet Marketing, and no one should try CPA offers or email marketing because the spammers are there also. Hashtags work so not using any would not be the best idea.

      Absolutely! Spammers will spam no matter what. I agree you can't stop using hashtags in your posts. It is a big part of reaching your audience. Don't use hashtags and you will see your reach drop big time.

    Instagram is weird. I created an account for my main website and get followers (2 or 3) each day, but I do not post on there and never have. I set it up to eventually get to it. I am more comfortable with other platforms I guess. Seems like alot of people moving around and following each other but I never hear about sales...

      You're right about following each other and not making sales. Instagram have people with over a million followers who realise its uncool to ask someone to follow a link in their bio(description). It's like:"why not just post it here for us to like/comment". I know Cuz it's only the services we offer that gets contacts... The sites, not so much. In any case, use the leverage to keep them as supporters.

    IMO, hashtags are important if you want to relevant followers to follow your IG page. Spammers are going to post spam in any way they like.

    You definitely want to keep using hashtags, just have interesting content that makes you standout.

    A lot of spammers post irrelevant media with the hashtag

    Don't use stupid tags like #followforfollow or #love and you won't get a ton of spam. If you use real tags like #greenpeppers or #bakingcookies you'll reach real people who are looking for useful content.
