So this whole #hashtag thing has been on my mind. Back on day 2 I mentioned ReadWriteWeb’s tips on gaining new Instagram followers. I tried #3, which is to use popular hashtags. And let me tell you, it worked. You can even go back to old photos and add popular hashtags and peopl start liking right away! I even gained some new followers.

It also helps to tag the things in your photo, and #sunset, #clouds, and #trees seem to be the most popular. Another tip: like lots of other’s photos. It will bring people to your page and might gain you some new followers. Good luck!
