    Anyone else having problems with their hashtags showing up or not? I cant figure out why I will upload a photo add 20 tags and post it and the photo will show up inder all the tags i left in the caption but then randomly (seems like every 3rd picture) i,ll go to post a picture and leave y normal 20 hashtags and then i go and click the hastags to see if my photo shows up and NOTHING. i dont get it.... the hashtags are in the photodescription but the you click the tag and the picture is no where to be found. it only happens sometimes though and it seems like no rhyme or reason.... is there something im missing? anyone else notice this? ive also noticed that sometimes when i edit description the tags stop working, sometimes they will work after an edit sometimes they dont??? im lost

    So....you're posting 20 tags and you wonder why this ain't working? Only porn stars are allowed that many tags....

    I had hashtags ghosting issues when I used illegal API's to upload photos on IG. When I used a legit mobile device, I never had problems.

    Or maybe you're using too much spammy hashtags?

    Negative. 30 hashtags is the maximum.

    Edit: You can also have your hashtags in the comments as well. You cannot have 30 in the description and 30 in the comment. 30 total regardless of description to comments.

    30 may be a physical maximum but if you constantly add more than a handful of tags you'll quickly get ghosted. This is what happened to OP.
