Top 60 Instagram hashtags for Recipe bloggers

Hashtags help Instagram users discover content and accounts to follow. The right hashtag, or combination of hashtags, is utterly powerful for your engagement, brand awareness, and post virality. You can add a maximum of 30 hashtags to a post. Adding 4-5 popular hashtags (with 1M+ posts) in your post increases the chance of making your post go viral. However, you should keep following tips in mind while using popular hashtags.

  1. No matter how popular they may be, you should avoid hashtags that desperately solicit Likes and followers— #likeall, #followme, #shotouts, #follow4follow, etc. Using these will attract only bots, spammers, and others commercial pages who have no intention of engaging with your brand in any meaningful way.
  2. Don’t use more than 5 popular hashtags in one post. Chances of getting lost in all the noise are higher with popular hashtags. Remember the phrase “Content is King”. Your content needs to be absolutely rocking to stand out in a lighting-fast moving tag feed.
  3. Post popular tags in the description. Do not wait for comment. No matter when you add a hashtag to your photo or video, it will appear in that hashtag feed with other photos or videos at its original posting time.
  4. Keep rotating. Don’t use same set of hashtags in consecutive posts. Instagram might find it spammy.
  5. Use only relevant hashtags which can help you connect with the right set of people. List of trending hashtags for recipe bloggers is given below.

Now that you know how to use popular hashtags best, here is our list of top 60 hashtags curated exclusively for recipe bloggers.
