    Does anyone have any idea why my Instagram hashtags would spot working?

    It was working fine until 2 days ago.

    Thanks in advance

    You can't use the same hashtag on the same picture more than 1 time.

    I mean, none of my hashtags actually work on my pics.
    The best way to explain it would be- if you tag your pic w/ a completely random hashtag, and click on the tag, it takes you to all the other pics with that tag. Mine don't show up. LIKE AT ALL.

    This seems to be an issue for some accounts but I'm not sure if I did something to trigger it or not.

    The issues may be with ONE hashtag. Sometimes when you post a group of lets say 30 hashtags, one is actually broken, causing all of them not to work. Best thing is to try one by one on an account and give it a few minutes for the picture to show up on a hashtag.

    If that doesn't work it might fix itself in a few days.

    I haven't heard of this "softban" sounding issue with hashtags. Have you tried with a different IP?

    When you say a different IP you mean like using a different phone? Or Device? If so, i dont really have another device to try it on.

    Yes that's what I meant. Or try using the website on a computer and changing the hashtags to the one you're using. If that doesn't work I'm not sure... But I don't think it should be a permanent thing.

    It should deff be an issue on your side, I have been using instagram perfectly fine for a time now. Hashtags work smooth

    Hashtags are also not working for me in my 300k account my post is not showing up in hashtags.. That's why my engagement decreased!
    Hope they will fix this issue!
