Tips for optimizing the use of hashtags on Instagram

How many hashtags should you use?

You can put up to 30 hashtags per post.

Contrary to popular belief, using as many hashtags as possible increases your chances of being discovered by new users. That's 30 more opportunities to appear in the search results for each hashtag.

Where should hashtags be placed?

To avoid overwhelming your subscribers with hashtags, you have two options:

  1. In the caption: With line breaks, you can separate your text from the hashtags for greater clarity.
  2. In the comments: Post your hashtags in the first comment to make them less visible. Be sure to add them immediately after posting to ensure that your content is considered recent by Instagram.

Languages available by hashtags

Flick provides hashtag suggestions and supports over 25 languages to help you optimize your global hashtag strategy.

How do I hide hashtags?

If you choose to comment on them, reply to an emoji with your hashtags to hide them. But remember, speed is key! Add them right after posting to make sure your post is relevant in the hashtag results.

  • 🎨 Hashtags linked to a niche — For example, #artisanat or #recettesanté to interact with people who are passionate about your interests.
  • 👤 Hashtags that target an audience — Like #parentsactifs or #jardiniers to reach specific people who will find value in your content.

  • 📍 Geotagged hashtags — Like #gourmetsparis or #sortiesmarseille to target users by location, ideal for promoting local activities or services.
  • 👋 Community hashtags — Created by users or brands to unite a community around a common interest or a campaign, such as #runnersduweb or #foodiesdeFrance.
  • ⚠️ Hashtags under surveillance — Avoid hashtags that are currently under review by Instagram to avoid affecting the reach of your posts.
