245 hashtags for bloggers and marketers

Do you speak hashtag?

In the play “We Will Rock You,” hashtags were heavily criticized.

Yet, hashtag marketing is an effective strategy to adopt if you want to be a successful social media marketer.

This post offers advantages of using hashtags as well as hashtags to help you get your content found at Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn.

Now that Google+ is folding, you need social media sites like Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn more than ever before.

Social media sites have great power.

They have the power to bring your blog exposure, visitors, and possibly new followers and customers.

In other words, social media translates into growth.

However, if you’re going to use social media for blog promotion, you have to speak in social media jargon.

Social media jargon is called “hashtag.”

Do you speak hashtag?

After this post, you will.

In this article you’ll discover these answers:

  • What are the advantages of using hashtags?
  • Which popular hashtags exist for all niches?
  • Are there free hashtag tools?
  • Which hashtag strategies are the most effective?

What is a Hashtag?

A hashtag is word or phrase preceded by a pound sign (#) and used to identify content on a specific topic.

UPDATE: July 2022

Here you will find more information about hashtags.

What is Hashtag Marketing?

Have you ever used hashtags to accompany your content on social media sites?

Hashtag marketing varies slightly. Instead of randomly sticking hashtags into your content, hashtag marketing is more calculated, more strategic.

This post will explain how to use Twitter hashtags, Instagram hashtags, and even LinkedIn hashtags.

The list will begin with the hashtags of my niche since many people who read this blog are in my niche.

The article will end with hashtags that can help everyone and then offer tools for finding even more.

Why Do People Use Hashtags?

  • Hashtags help you find other people in your niche.
  • You can use Twitter and Instagram, sites that commonly use hashtags, to research for your blog posts. Even LinkedIn has started using hashtags
  • You can brand your content using hashtags. It’s okay to invent hashtags for yourself or your content. For example, Calvin Klein used #myCalvins in one of their campaigns.
  • According to Twitter expert, Lisa Sicard, Twitter’s concern over bots repeating the same message is alleviated. By using different hashtags, you’re changing your message.
  • When you use hashtags, people interested in your content can find you. Therefore, using hashtags at social media sites increases your chances for website traffic.
  • Also, using hashtags can even help you make sales. People looking to make purchases can find your content easier. Monetizing Instagram and Twitter is easier if you use hashtags.
  • Since many hashtag tools offer analytics, it’s easy to track the effectiveness of the hashtags you use.


I found out after publishing this post the following hashtag marketing strategy:

Avoid one-word hashtags. They will get lost on social media. Two-word hashtags or hashtags with more than two words are effective when generating interest in your content. There are many hashtags with two words or more on the following lists:

Hashtag Strategies

How to Use Hashtags on Twitter

Put your hashtag in your bio. I put two hashtags that would identify my content in my Twitter bio, #blogging and #socialmedia.

Where should you put your Twitter hashtags?

In your tweets and in your Twitter bio.

How many hashtags should you use in each tweet?

If you use more than two or three, you’ll look spammy.

Instagram Hashtag Strategies:


Instagram allows up to 30 hashtags in each post.

Where should you put your hashtags on Instagram?

Put them in your posts and your Instagram bio.

Expert Hashtag Marketing Strategies:

Some articles encourage you to use the most popular hashtags. Clearly, you’ll get exposure to more people if you do.

However, the more popular the hashtag, the more crowded the niche.

Other writers advise sticking to under 1 million or even 500,000.

When you go to Instagram and research the hashtag in the search bar, you’ll see the number of posts containing that hashtag and learn its popularity.

Strategy 1:

Blogger Faizan offers hashtag hacks:

“Instagram works upon hashtag use. Hashtags work on Instagram just like keywords work on Google. The more relevant hashtags you use, the more reach your content will get.”

Strategy 2: 

I save hashtags successful bloggers and marketers in my niche use on Instagram. When my content is relevant to those hashtags, I use them.

I save them in the Pages app. That way, I can access them anywhere from the Cloud.

This strategy is effective in avoiding Instagram penalties. If Instagram thinks I’m using the same hashtags with each post, I can be banned.

Strategy 3:

Source: Andrew Macarthy:

Use hashtags with a Low, Medium, and a High amount of popularity.

Low: 1,000 to 10,000 posts exist with the hashtag.

Medium: 20,000 to 100,000 posts exist with the hashtag.

High: More than 1 million posts exist with the hashtag.

Strategy 4:

Others say 5 hashtags are good to use so your Instagram captions don’t look cluttered.

Reminder: Make sure the hashtags you use match the content.

Hashtag Marketing on LinkedIn:

LinkedIn not only uses hashtags, a recent development, but LinkedIn actually suggests the hashtags that match your content for you!

Hashtag Marketing: 245 hashtags for bloggers and marketers

After making a LinkedIn post, related hashtags appear. Just click on them and they’ll appear with your content making you easier to find for people interested in your content.

  1. Anindya Rakshit

    This is super helpful Janice. We all know about hashtags, but many of us are unsure how to effectively use them for a wider reach for our blog posts. Your guide and exhaustive list will help all of us a lot. Thanks.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Anindya,
      Thank you so much for the kind words and articulate comments. I’m glad you agree. The extensive list WILL help people make a wider reach, yes. I’ve found since I started using the “day” hashtags, my Twitter follower count has risen for example. Thanks for writing.

  2. Jeanette S. Hall

    I still cringe every time I see a pound sign used as a hashtag! Guess that just proves I am stuck on my way of thinking.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Jeanette,
      I appreciate your comments, but may I ask why that makes you cringe?

  3. Faizan Ali

    Firstly, I’m very thankful Janice that you have include my views,

    This is such an in depth posts about using hashtags.

    Janice, I want to share little more that what I’ve experienced about using hashtags on different social media is that you can’t go with the same mentality on every platform.

    I mean if you are on Instagram you should use around 10-15 hashtags but on Pinterest if you go with the same number then you may not get the same kind of engagement for your content.

    Liked this post going to share it.


    • Janice Wald

      Hi Faizan,
      Thank you for your comments, your inspiration, and sharing my post.
      I agree. Instagram allows 30 but if you go with that many on Twitter you’ll look spammy. Thanks for continuing the discussion about hashtag practice.

  4. Nicole at High Latitude Style

    any ideas how to “convert” google+ followers to blog or other followers except for asking them in posts?

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Nicole,
      It sounds like you heard Google+ is closing and want to know what to do with your followers. Am I right? I agree. I’d ask them… I can’t think of any other way.

  5. Ryan Biddulph

    Nice list Janice. I have seen the power of hashtag marketing at play on IG and Twitter especially. My IG views aka likes and comments jumped when I did some tagging. People search according to hashtags on that network, big time.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Ryan,
      Since publishing my hashtag post I discovered a new hashtag tool, All Hashtags. Now I’ll have even more hashtags to choose from!
      People have written me on Instagram and told me they found me through hashtags. Good thing I used them!
      Thanks for writing.

  6. Thabo

    Hi Janice,
    another awesome and helpful post. Thanks for sharing. I especially liked the hashtags for each day of the week. I haven’t thought of that.This will really help me expand my use of hashtags. Thanks for sharing.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Thabo,
      I’m so glad you found my hashtag post helpful. I’m hoping with 245 hashtags to choose from, everyone will be able to expand their use of hashtags. Thanks for writing.

  7. BrainPundits

    • Janice Wald

      Hi BrainPundits,

      Thanks for your kind words. I appreciate you calling my post “amazing.”
      Yes, many of the hashtags I recommended are relevant to marketing and small businesses. I’m glad you feel my hashtag list will help them.

  8. Lisa P. Sicard

    Hi Janice, I love your hashtag lists, thank you. I love the ides you have for Instagram with them. I’ve been experimenting there more lately. You are so right about Twitter, 3 is the most I’d every use there!
    I wonder why some use hashtags on Facebook, do you ever seem them there or even recommend them there?
    Thank you for the mention here Janice 🙂 Have a great day.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Lisa,
      It was my pleasure to mention you. Thank you for the inspiration.
      Regarding hashtags on Facebook: I’ve read we shouldn’t use them. They actually turn people off. If/when I use them, it’s on my business page. That way, all my bases are covered. However, I don’t use them in my posts on my wall or in groups. Again, I heard hashtags are a turn off on Facebook, so I don’t. Thanks for commenting.

  9. Gaurav Kumar

    Hi Janice,

    Hashtags play an important role for targeting the right audience. When using these hashtags one should use them wisely. Never overdo.
