June 20th, 2013 was a big day for Instagram as well as for me (it was my BDay). Instagram came out with a new feature which most of us were excited to see. INSTAGRAM VIDEO SHARE!!!! It’s a pretty cool feature, you can shoot up to 15 second video. It has a been a week since its out, and it already killed Vine’s business [VINE-KILLER:)] Lots of Top Brands already using Instagram video feature to promote their products. So since we got new instagram video, so obviously there will be a lot of new hashtags for instagram videos. I am already working on it, and our new Iphone app will be available in appstore very soon, we already submitted our app just waiting for an approval from Apple. Also we started working on new Android app, it should be done very soon, right after that we will be working on Windows phone app. Once I am done with instagram video hashtags our update will be available in appstore. Hope you guys enjoy our app, any issue with the app, please contact us thru contact form in our app.
This happened probably many of you guys. It happened on my accounts that I had. I was using the hashtags as a comment, picture wasn’t showing under any of the hashtags. Only my followers could see that. There are 3 main reasons why your instagram hashtags (tags, hash tags) are not showing up.
1. Instagram Terms violation. Posting such as nude, hateful, sexual pictures are the main ones. Please click here to check the Instagram Terms and Conditions. In this case there is no way you can get your account fixed. Usually they block or terminate your account.
2. Commenting Hashtags Bug. This one is pretty common. Sometimes you comment hashtags to your photo, it goes thru (it works) but it wont show up under comments. Since instagram allows only 30 hashtags at a time, it wont read the new hashtags you post, because it already have the hashtags which you cant see. It is a system bug, even if you delete and reinstall the app it wont help. There is a way you can fix this.
a. Login to www.statig.am (with instagram)
b. Go to “My Photos”
c. Select the photo that you are having issue with.
d. Comments will be listed on the right side (if you dont see the comment refresh the browser). Once you hover over the comment little garbage can image will show up, Click and delete the comment.
3. Instagram Bugs. Lately a lot of users account either disabled or deleted for no reason. Instagram hasn’t said anything about this issue. It’s either there is a bug in their system that deletes accounts for no reason, or some employees deleting it on purpose, or Instagram is overloaded and trying to offload a little bit. Instagram customer support is not good, so emailing them doesn’t really work, but you can give it a try.
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.
Click the “gear” icon (Settings/Options) on top right > Find&Invite Friends >Invite Friends
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.
*Don’t take random pictures of yourself. Thats annoying.
*Share some fun pictures
*Follow the users that says they will follow back. Cuz they actually do;)
*Post 3-4 pictures a day.
*Make sure to share cool pictures.
*Fill out your info (use signs emojis)
*Use photo filters
*Like random users photos.
*Use only my hashtags:)
If you know more tips just share it with your comments.
Just wanted to let you know, I updated all the hashtags, so you have all new Instagram hashtags for 2013. I also added new Country and International City hashtags which I believe you guys get the most of the likes from. One more thing, I added #tagsforshare hashtag for each hashtag groups, it just makes it easy for me to track. Enjoy new Instagram Hashtags 2013 and get more instagram likes and followers.
I was pretty busy lately, that is why it took a little long, but finally we came out with new user-friendly mobile site. I personally like it, but its brand new and it might be perfect, I understand. Please comment us if you have any suggestions. If you are used to older version of our website you can still switch it back to it (roll down, you will see Classic Version). Hope you guys enjoy it and keep using our hashtags for Instagram;)
Lately I see this thing called ”Ghost Followers”. I get alot of question like; “Who are these ghost followers?”, “What are these Ghost followers for?” ,”Why are they called Ghost followers?”. It sounds scary huh?!:))
It is just a new name for fake instagram followers or the real followers, who don’t like or comment on your photo. Not only on Instagram, you get these followers on Twitter as well. I have about 580 followers, when I post a picture I only get 20-30 likes without using Top Hashtags, I guess most of my followers are these Ghost Followers (Fake Followers) . Some people buy these Ghost followers (Fake Followers), and spend a lot of money. I found this cheap place where you can buy these followers. Hit me up on kik: faliko and I will give you more info about it.
Keep using our Top Instagram Hashtags,and get as much likes or followers as you guys can.
It’s pretty easy to get more likes on Instagram. Currently Instagram let users to hashtag (tag) their posts up to 30 hashtags (tags) at a time. You can, however, delete older hashtags (tags) and post another 30 more new hashtags (tags). Post 30 hashtags (tags) then wait about 5 to 10 minutes then delete the old ones and post new ones (hashtags, tags). Once the hashtags (tags) used, do not use them again, because it wont get you any likes no more.
More pictures you post wont get you more likes. Posting 4-5 pictures a day [ different times, I usually post one around 12 pm, 3 pm, 7 pm, 10 pm PST] would be enough. Make sure pictures are High Quality and use Instagram Filters.
Top hashtags (tags) are not necessarily get you more likes, since a lot of people using these hashtags (tags), your pictures only show up on the first page for less than a second. Try to use Cities Hashtags [I got a lot of followers and likes], or Top Country Hashtags, International City Hashtags [If you wanna be known internationally:)]
Followers are hard to get, you just have to be patient . Using these hashtags (tags) will get you a lot of fake followers (or they are also called ghost followers) + some real followers. Once people see you have a lot of followers (perhaps most will be fake followers) they will be interested in you and start following you, nobody really checks if your followers are real or fake.
