Ok, so we have debated quite a lot whether hashtags brings any likes and followers. Now, there is a bug with the hashtags, so the most recent posts on hashtags currently are 22 hours old. I've looked through my hashtags, and I'm "lucky" enough to be stuck on the top of some big niche relevant hashtags, but I have not gained anything! Contradicting, the first few posts on the same hashtags are SPAMMED with likes, the accounts usually got 30 likes, and suddenly they have 1000s on that one photo (they are probably banging their heads why). This exactly proves, that traffic from hashtags is non-existent, and the traffic you get is from bots going through the hashtags. Hence top posts gets nothing and most recent gets a ton from the bots that (including the usual spam comments "nice shot").
