How Do Hashtags Work?

When you insert a “#” sign, (hashmark, number sign, pound sign) before a word (no space) you are actually writing a code. You are saying “Put this post in this #__category__”. This is extraordinarily useful for internet marketing. This also has practical uses. Let’s imagine a wedding example. It is the current trend these days for the bride and groom to create a hashtag for their wedding such as#smithjoneswedding. Now, anyone who takes photos and posts them with the text #smithjoneswedding, can catalogue these photos under that hashtag. If you were to click just the #smithjoneswedding hashtag, you would see all the photos that are catalogued under that hashtag.

Using Multiple Hashtags For Internet Marketing

When a user sees an incredible post, they are likely to follow that poster. Of course, the more likes, follows, shares, etc, the more popular your posted content becomes. See how it’s all working?
