How to Show Up on a User’s Explore Page

DON’T use hashtags with millions of posts.
DO use hashtags that have a range of 5,000 – 500,000 posts.
DON’T use more than 10 hashtags per post.
DO use a combination of popular and niche hashtags.
TIP: To see how many posts a hashtag has, you can simply go to the search bar on Instagram and type in “#” with the keyword next to it.
