The Almighty #Hashtag that is important for every post.

//The Almighty #Hashtag that is important for every post.

A common question with businesses new to social media is “What is that hashtag for and why should I use them?” Great question! I like to explain a hashtag as a mini search engine for that word or phrase you put the “#” in front of.

Using a word (#keyword) that is relevant to your post can direct new traffic to someone looking at posts with just that #Hashtag. If you go into the search bar and enter a word with a hashtag in front of it, that will generate posts tagged with your search. Depending on the platform, you may also filter your search by who posted, a location and even a date.

When using the hashtag as a phrase or tag line, there is only one rule and that is #NoSpaces. Once you enter a space between the words you have ended that particular #Hashtag. For an example, we can search #ShopLocal and get results but by entering #Shop and #Local we will get additional posts. You don’t want to create anything too long, it will cause confusion or create the opportunity to misspell what you tried to create.

There are ways to use #Hashtags throughout your content as well as after your content. This concept is always up for debate, you have to monitor your insights and see what works for you. Here are some ways to use #hashtags throughout your post:
