1. Go public:
Being private means nobody but your friend will see your pictures. Basically you are limiting your visibility. Make sure your Instagram account is public. Click “Edit Your Profile” >Photos are Private (Make sure its OFF)
2. Select your best pictures:
This is the most important step for getting a lot of likes or followers on Instagram. People looking for good and interesting content. Pictures such as landmarks, sunset scene, a good face shot will work the best. High quality pictures will attract more users.
3. Use Hashtags:
Using instagram hashtags will attrack more users, who are searching for specific type of photos. Here at www.tagsforshare, I have all trending instagram hashtags (top hashtags) that will get you more likes and followers. All the trending hashtags are up to date.
4. Tagging the location (Geotags):
Tagging the location of the picture will also help you get more likes and followers. People are interested in the location of the picture that use post. Also tagging location on photos, Instagram will bring up other pictures from the same location. That means, if somebody checks the location from some other picture might see your picture from that location as well.
5. Following/Liking/Commenting other users:
I would say, this is the best way to gain followers. Most of the users follow back, and they mention it on their profile as well. Liking several photos of users and commenting on them will get you followers and likes. Try following and liking users who have less followers or new to instagram.
6. Invite friends:
Inviting your friends is another best way to get followers.

7. Share your photos on Social Networks:
Instagram give you an option to share your photos on several different Social Network such as Facebook, Twitter, Email share, Tumblr, Flickr, foursquare. This make it easy for your friends to see your pictures and like them.
Click the “gear” icon (Settings/Options) on top right >Share Settings (Set up your accounts here)
8. Don’t change your username frequently:
Some users don’t want to follow people that they don’t know. Make sure you don’t change your username more often. Your friends might not recognize your new username and unfollow you.
