Hashtags to use for Instagram

Instagram is without a doubt my favourite social media platform and even with the recent addition of Instagram stories, I think I love it even more. For a long time my photos were getting regular 40-50 love, which when I considered my 3500+ Instagram following, wasn’t the greatest of odds. So I needed to do a little research into why my photos weren’t getting the reach I was looking for.

Hashtags. It’s all about those hashtags people! Those darling little things help to get your photos the exposure they deserve, as long as you add the relevant hashtags to your photos. So for a good few weeks now {when I’ve had the time} I’ve been doing a little research into the most popular hashtags to use for particular photos, and I thought I’d share them with you lovely people.

First, though, I’ll share with you the 30 hashtags that I’m currently using which have doubled the love my Instagram photos are getting since I started using them a few weeks ago. Remember, though, you can use 30 of the little darlings.

Now, for relevant photos to other such images i.e. beauty, interiors, food etc, here are a selection of popular hashtags that I ‘ve found.

Home & Interiors: #interiors #interiorstyle #interiorstyling #interiordesign #home #homedecor #homeinterior #myhomestyle #homeinspiration #instahome

Travel: #travel #travels #traveler #travelgram #travelling #travelbug #travelpic #travelersnotebook #travellife #travelporn #travelblog #travelpics #travelbuddy #travelingram #traveltips #traveladdict #traveljunkie #travellover #travelworld #travelawesome

Photography: #photos #photography #photograph #photooftheday #photolocker #photoadaychallenge #photographerlife #photoofday #photogrid #photooftheweek #photoshoot #photographylovers #photobyme #photosession #photostory #photostagram 

Use them wisely and use them well! I hope they help to increase not only your own IG following but the likes your gorgeous images get too!
