I have been meaning to write this super important post for a long time, especially seeing the amazing response to my recent Instagram related posts (Bookish Questions For Your Social Media Captions and Perfect book quotes for Instagram captions). Yes, let us talk about hashtags for your bookstagram account.

With all the incessant changes in the Instagram algorithm about saves and shares, it might seem like hashtags have lost their importance. But no, they have not.

What are your go to tricks for bookstagram? How do you choose your hashtags for bookstagram? Do you have an Instagram account specifically for books/reading and writing? Let's talk. Click To Tweet

Quick tips on using Instagram Hashtags

  • Hashtags still matter a lot on Instagram, despite all the algorithm changes.
  • You can use up to 30 hashtags on a post, so make the best of it. I personally use all the available thirty hashtags.
  • That brings me to next question: whether to add your Instagram hashtags in your caption or comment? Why not do them both? You get the best of both worlds.
  • Do not repeat the same set of hashtags over and over. Mix and match relevant hashtags for better reach.
  • Include hashtags that have large, medium and niche/small reach in your posts. I have added a bunch of them at the end of the post, and again mix and match to your heart’s content.
  • Try to add in some geography specific hashtags, depending on wherever you are and the photo was captured at.
  • Also do not forget to count in book and author specific hashtags like #StephenKing or #TheClockworkPrince.

    This is super helpful! I tend to use hashtags that people follow because I know I see the hashtags I follow in my feed all the time. But I’m always at a loss for NEW hashtags to use. So thank you for this list!

    Nice post. I’m fairly new to instagram and I’ve only been using a few hashtags so far (and by the look of it, probably the wrong ones…). So thanks for this!
