Instagram Hashtag Suggestions feature helps you find relevant hashtags for your posts and Templates help you save time, prepare and organize your post texts and hashtags so you can quickly add them to your posts when scheduling.

With hashtag suggestions, you can find the right hashtags for your field or industry. At the same time, you will see the "size" of the hashtag – how many times it was used in a post on Instagram.

Many different categories are used to describe the size of hashtags, but it is usually similar to this:



Amount of posts



extremely popular hashtags, general

more than 500,000 posts associated with them




very popular hashtags, general

100,000 – 500,000 posts




popular hashtags

10,000 – 100,000 posts




niche hashtags

branded hashtags

0 – 10,000 posts
