The Top Two Reasons Why You Should Hide Your Hashtags

There are lots of reasons why you might want to hide your hashtags on Instagram. But most people do it for two main reasons, whether they’re famous or not.

  1. Cleaning up your Instagram captions makes your posts look more professional and eye-catching.
  2. Shifting the focus from a long list of hashtags to the actual content in your caption. It’s a great way to get people to actually read what you have to share.

Hiding Hashtags in Captions

You can hide your hashtags using the five-dots method. Here’s how it works:

  1. Write your post caption.
  2. Put five periods in a row, one on each line.
  3. Add your hashtags.

This basically collapses the list of hashtags. But are they really hidden? Only from immediate view. If your followers want to see them, they can reveal the list by clicking the “more” link.

Now, here’s another cool trick you can use. The lines of periods will collapse the hashtags written below them. So if you want to use a few popular hashtags that you want to show, you can do that and still hide the rest.

Just add a few hashtags after your message. Then add the dots, and then the rest of your hashtags.

Hiding Hashtags in a Comment

Did you know that Instagram has a hashtag limit per post (caption)? But there’s a simple hack to exceed that limit. You can use a comment to bypass the hashtag limit. And even better, you can hide your additional hashtags within the comment.

  1. Write a comment.
  2. Add five periods in a row on separate lines.
  3. Add your hashtags.

The same method for hiding hashtags in captions can be used for comments. You don’t even need to write anything in the comment. Just start with the five dots and then add your extra hashtags.

How Many Hashtags Can You Use?

For captions, you can use a maximum of 30 hashtags. Although a limit may seem restrictive to your potential success, don’t worry. Very few popular posts actually reach the 30 hashtag limit. There’s only so much relevant content you can come up with for your post and your account activity.

When it comes to comments, there’s no limit to the number of hashtags you can use. So go ahead and use as many as you can within the character limit. But remember, it’s always a good idea to leave some space in your captions for new hashtags.

If you want to add new hashtags to your post, it’s best to edit the caption and make some room. Alternatively, you can remove old hashtags to make space for the new ones. Here’s how you can edit your post and add new hashtags:

  1. Tap the three-dotted icon.
  2. Select “Edit.”
  3. Add your new hashtags.
  4. Tap “Done” on iOS devices or hit the checkmark on Android devices.

Ready to Become a Social Media Sensation?

Don’t worry about hiding your hashtags to make your post harder to find. It won’t affect its visibility in the search engine. So go ahead and use hashtags, especially when your list is too long to be visually appealing.
