In the latest version of Hashtag Expert, there are now 9 different algorithms you can choose from. In this article, we'll explain what they all do and when you should use them.
Repeated is a great all-purpose algorithm. It will take your base hashtag and find other hashtag groups that people are using that contain your base hashtag. Then, it will find out the most common hashtags in all of those hashtag groups. This is our standard algorithm because it tends to produce the most relevant hashtags. If you're focused on finding hashtags that will be as related as possible to your base hashtags, use Repeated.
This is really helpful if your goal is to get hashtags with certain amounts of posts. These hashtag groups will have very high report card ratings, usually at least a B. If you have a moderate-sized account and want hashtags that might not be the most relevant, but are within the recommended post count bounds, this is a good option for you. The drawback is that some hashtags may be a little unrelated to your base hashtag because we are focusing on post counts, not relevancy. Although, they should still be for the most part pretty similar.
This one is really cool. Basically, we'll take a look at your Instagram account and see how many likes you average on your posts. Using this information, we'll find hashtags where the top posts have around the same amount of average likes. This means that you should have a high chance of getting your post into the Top Posts for these hashtags.
This one can be useful in some situations. For this one, you will want to make your base hashtag as short as possible because we are looking for hashtags that contain your exact base hashtag. So, if you make your base hashtag #nyc, every single hashtag we return will contain #nyc like #nyceats, #nycviews, #nycphotography. The shorter you make your base hashtag, the better the hashtags we return will be. Exact will usually produce extremely related hashtags, the problem is if your base hashtag is too long, we might not find enough hashtags. For example, if you put in #nycphotography2020, it will be difficult for us to find hashtags that contain that.
Here we'll get you the literal most popular hashtags we could find that are related to your base hashtags. You may get some generic ones like #love and #photo, but that's the point. You might actually get a lot of likes from these because they have so many users browsing them.
This is a bit narrower and will find hashtags that have between 100,000 and 1,000,000 posts. This is a range that some people prefer, so we included it if you want it. If you aren't sure what range of posts you want, Optimized or Personalized are better options.
Hashtags that have between 1,000 and 100,000 posts. This algorithm is very narrow and useful if you are just getting your account started and don't have a large audience. You'll have a good chance of placing with these since they are relatively low competition.
