Do Hashtags Increase Views on Instagram?
In March 2022, Head of IG Adam Mosseri explained that hashtags do help IG figure out what your content is about. Which could raise the likelihood of your content appearing on a hashtag page. 

But he clarified that hashtags alone aren’t a tool for increasing distribution.

About a week later, Mosseri clarified, “I’m saying they’re not going to meaningfully change the amount of reach you get when you post. So if you expect a night-and-day difference, you’re going to be disappointed.”

If you’re questioning how to use hashtags in the future and searching for other ways to improve organic reach on IG, you’re not alone.

To find 12 ways to get more organic reach without relying on hashtags, read the full article.
