Things to Consider when Selecting the Right Hashtags for your Post
The hashtag popularity and your account size should be considered. Compare your account size to the number of posts under that hashtag. Your account size (in followers) should be 10-20% of the total number of posts. For example, there are 355,953 posts tagged with a hashtag. So, based on our previous statement, accounts that range anywhere between 35k (10%) and 71k followers (20%) will want to use this hashtag. Here are 4 best practice ideas to follow when choosing the best travel hashtags for your post:
1.) Choose relevant travel hashtags according to your page size
2.) Use those hashtags that reflect your goals and niche
3.) Use hashtags to invoke emotion, inspire or motivate people
4.) Stay away from very large hashtags if you have a small page (like #love)
Using Travel Hashtags Sets to Make Life Easier
If you’re scrolling through a bunch of hashtags you may want to put them into hashtag sets. This helps you:
1.) Break them down into different sizes (for example a set of hashtags from 100-200k, 200-500k,500k-1M, etc.).
2.) Use (sub) niche sets (backpacking, luxury travel, solo travel, Europe, American, Asia, etc.).
3.) When applicable you can organize them in calendar themed sets (a set of Mondays posts, Throwback Thursdays, Happy hour Fridays, etc.).
4.) By identifying the content (video, photo, drawing, art, etc.).
