200 Best Instagram Hashtags for Different Types of Photos

200 Best Instagram Hashtags for Different Types of Photos

I don’t know how I lived my social media life without hashtags. I used to be embarrassed to use them, but as a content creator who relies on social media engagement, it doesn’t bother me anymore. And it doesn’t matter what other people think, because at the end of the day, all you’re trying to do is grow your Instagram. So here’s why you need to find the best Instagram hashtags for your photos!

On my main Instagram, I currently average 300-500 likes and 30 comments per photo with 2,800 followers. That’s an 11-18% like ratio, which is actually a pretty good number, and I wouldn’t be able to achieve it without hashtags. Before I started using hashtags in July 2016, I averaged around 200 likes and 3 comments with about 1,900 followers, which is a 10.5% like ratio, and 10 times less comments than I receive now.

Anyways, my point of all this is that you should USE HASHTAGS. Instagram allows you to use 30 hashtags and tag 20 accounts, so you might as well take advantage of them. I’ve listed the best hashtags that work for me, along with accounts I tag to help get more likes or reposts. As a bonus for my fellow Torontonians, I’ve included extra hashtags and accounts to tag that are Toronto-specific!
