How to Add More than 30 Hashtags on Instagram in 2022

Hashtags on Instagram are a great feature that allows us to reach a lot more people whenever we post.

Instagram, however, limits the number of hashtags you can use on a single post to 30, and if you tried to add more than this, it won’t let you.

So, over the last couple of years, smart Instagram users have found ways to exceed the limits.

One of those strategies was to put 30 hashtags in the captions and add another 30 in the comments section.

Another workaround was to post without any hashtags in the caption and then post 30 hashtags in the comments section before going back to editing the caption and adding another 30.

All these and many others worked for a while, but Instagram eventually caught on and patched its system so that it stopped working.

But in 2021 …

Can You Add More than 30 Hashtags on Instagram?

The simple answer is, yes! And in this tutorial, I’m going to walk you through the simple steps of adding more than 30 hashtags on Instagram.

Hopefully, this won’t get patched any time soon.

How to Add 30 Hashtags on Instagram

  1. The first thing you need to do is to add 30 hashtags in the caption when you’re posting
  2. Go to the comments section and post a random comment without hashtags
  3. Now reply to the comment you’ve just posted with 30 hashtags
  4. Give it a minute and then delete the first comment

As a result of this, you will have more than 30 hashtags in your post. The ones in the comments will not be visible to users, but they are to Instagram’s algorithm.

Adding more hashtags alone will not help get you more reach and followers. You want to make sure to add a different set of hashtags for your niche every time you post.

This is where you need an advanced tool like MetaHashtags that will help you tailor hashtags that you’re more likely to rank higher for and reach more people.

You can also use this tool to check and eliminate hashtags that are banned on Instagram.

Ranking higher for these hashtags will also get you to rank for popular and more competitive hashtags that you’d otherwise never appear anywhere for.

Here’s an example of where this strategy was used:

175 hashtags were used on this post alone.

As you can see, when a hashtag strategy for Instagram is executed properly, you can easily reach more people and gain an impressive amount of followers from just a single Instagram post.

In Closing

The number of extra hashtags you’ll be able to post will depend on age and how active your account is.

Newer and lesser active Instagram accounts may not be able to exceed 70 hashtags in a single post, while aged and more active ones will easily do up to 300 hashtags in one post.

It’s best to experiment with your own until you find the sweet spot for your Instagram account. MetaHashtags should ease that for you.
