Do you use hashtags in your social media posts?
Hashtags let you tag your posts with keywords, making them easier for social networks to organize and other users to search.
For example: #Marketing #Business #BusinessStrategy
So when you add a hashtag to a post or tweet, the social media immediately indexes the keyword so it’s searchable by other users. If someone clicks on that hashtag, they’ll find a page that lists all the posts with the same hashtagged keyword. If a keyword becomes popular it’s known as “trending.”
Including hashtags in your social media means more people can see your content and might follow or interact with you.
If you use one or two related hashtags you might find your “reach” extends even further. But it’s time-consuming searching and experimenting with related hashtags. Which is why I was delighted to find this invaluable resource.
http://hashtagify.me finds related hashtag keywords without having to experiment.
All you do enter in a keyword and the site will tell you the top ten related keywords. Then you can include the most related in your posts or tweets.
So now you can find related hashtags instantly. Give it a try. Add in a few related keywords (though don’t over do it and become a hashtag spammer) and see your social media interactions increase.
Now it’s your turn:
