    Hello guys!

    I'm targeting very low hashtags (20k to 50k) where most top posts in a given hashtag average 10 to 15 likes and 0 comments.

    My posts have 50 to 60 likes and a few comments and they never get to the top post feature.

    Is there any trick in this? I noticed most of them only insert 2 or 3 hashtags in the post while I insert 25, could this be a ranking factor for top post?

    Thank you very much

    do you get the likes quickly? if they come in slowly e.g., 5 hours, they dont count.

    Do these spam hashtags really work?

    this is the most SHITTEST list you can ever have in the whole of Instagram. If you believe that you should be thanked for sharing this then jump off a cliff. You clearly know sweet fuck all.

    only use hashtags which relate to the picture and/or your account. in the end you can use those (crapy) like4like tags but they will only generate likes and/or followers who do not relate as good on your niche and your account when you use niche/picture/account related tags. growing an account isn't a print race, it is a marathon. take your time and investigate which tags work and which do not work.

    going a bit more in depth i use around 25 hashtags, some have 25K pictures, other 200K (or higher). once ball is rolling and i get 'highlighted' in the smaller ones i gain likes, with those I hope to get 'highlighted' on the 200K or higher hashtags.

    Not very quickly like in 3 hours and then starts to slow down. Thing is the posts that are in top posts for that given hashtag don't have many likes and they don't come quick to, I even see posts with 2 or 3 days which is weird.

    I'm doing the same, only targeted hashtags. What is weird is some top posts in some hastags has posts with 2 or 3 days and like 20 likes. My posts are more recent and has more likes and doesn't get featured.

    Today I found something odd.

    7 hours ago one of my first posts that is 1 week old was featured in top posts for a hashtag.

    Now I checked again and it has other post of mine which is 4 days old and the other got removed.

    What is odd is that I posted today another post that got 5 times more likes than those 2 and I can see it recent posts bellow but even though it has more enagement is not beeing featured in top posts.

    Maybe small hashtags have some kind of delay? New post is 3 hours in. If he gets later to top posts I will let you know.
