    Other people will ( or may ) see your post if they search the posts using the keywords of your hashtag (#keyword). I've tried a few times, but didn't get any traffic.

    When some one Clicks on that hastag, they will be Seeing All Posts from people who use that hash tag.

    Click on that hash tag and you will know.

    It could be because those hash tags are used by many more big and verified pages and they rank higher than yours.

    I have also been feeling puzzled about the use of hashtags on Facebook. I mean, I can see people using them for their businesses and for their concerns when it comes to their social lives. However, I don't see its relevance when it comes to ranking pages and the likes.

    Linking advantages...
    Since hashtags basically started on Twitter, more of these are used by Twitter users on the platform. Once Facebook is linked to Twitter, there will be a combination of tweets and updates coming from users on both platforms. Facebook can capitalize on the fact that it has twice as many users compared to Twitter.

    using he has tags in your post in the Facebook increases te post strength as the hashed keywords are ranked in the higher position through some sites. click the hash tags once and you will see the thing that happens really. simply it will increase the post strength.

    If you can target a trending hashtag, you are likely to get more traffic on Facebook to your most recent posts. This idea could work if your story is highly related or covers a unique angle of the subject.
