The Worst Advice We’ve Ever Heard About Hashtags

The Worst Advice We've Ever Heard About Hashtags

Since the launch of Hashtracking, we’ve been listening to an awful lot of Hashtag advice. Some of what we hear being advised is good, even great. And some of it is downright dreadful.

Use all the Hashtags, all the time, everywhere.

Yeah baby, keep shaking that salt!

Make Your Hashtags SUPER specific, in fact go ahead and #Hashtagawholesentence

Know what else makes a great hashtag? Inside jokes. Screw people if they don’t get it.

Use whatever’s trending RIGHT NOW. Better yet use several trending tags from different areas around the USA, and abroad. All at once.

Layer those tags like your aftershave, and cologne. Then spritz some extra wherever a teenaged boy would spray some AXE deodorant. Go hog wild with it and #hashtagforlikes

When in doubt #CaMelCaSe

You should also throw in some random spacing, weird semi inappropriate looking ascii art, and a whole slew of emoji. That always gets people’s attention!

Keep it a #Secret

When people ask you what your hashtag is, look puzzled and slightly confused. Smile shyly and coyly and tell them that you cannot share that information because it’s too personal. Make your employees sign a non disclosure as well.
