Best Couple Hashtags for Instagram
With a lot of trial and error, we have found a way to work out what are the best hash tags to use for couples on Instagram.
Why use Hashtags on Instagram?
Hash tags are important to use on Instagram because it means more eyes on your profile. More eyes on your profile mean more engagement and followers. More engagement and followers equals Instagram Superstar!
You are allowed to use up to 30 Hash Tags on Instagram based on Instagram’s policies.
There are various different ideas on strategies regarding how many hash tags to use.
Some people believe why only enter the lottery 10 times when you have 30 chances? Others believe over hash tagging can violate Instagram’s spam policy and lead you to become shadow banned.
And we are here to tell you shadow banning is not a myth. We have been shadow banned before and it is NOT fun having your post seen by nobody on Instagram.
If you are new to the term shadow ban basically it means not having your posts seen in hash tags.
Various things can get you shadow banned including using the same hash tag over and over.
For this reason, make sure you mix up your hash tags. Do not use the same hash tags every time or you will face the notorious and dreaded shadow ban!
Another tip to avoid getting shadow banned is to place your hash tag in the post description NOT your first comment. It may be nice to hide your hash tags in your comments but this is a method that will result in you being shadow banned.
To err on the side of caution (but still have lots of entries in the lottery) we use around 20 hash tags on our Instagram posts.

There is no one size fits all or a cooker cutter answer.
There is a formula to this answer. We have developed two questions to help you determine which hash tags are best for you!
1. How Big are You?
In determining what hash tags to use, we firstly need to know how many followers you have. This will determine the size of hash tag we can go after:
- 0 – 20,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 10,000 tags
- 20,000 – 40,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 50,000 tags
- 50,000 – 100,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 100,000 tags
- 100,000 – 300,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 300,000 tags
- 300,000 + – Hit them big tags up!
2. What is your engagement rate?
If you have 300,000 followers and an engagement rate of 0.01%, you are not going to appear in top of 300,000+ hash tag.
Whether you will appear at the top of a hash tag depends on your rate of engagement. Firstly, if your followers engage in your post and secondly, how fast your followers like and engage with your post.
If your engagement is a little sub-par aim for hash tags in one to two categories down from your follower count.
Remember the aim of the game is to appear at top of hash tags and gain more followers and likes!
