Check out the Instagram Multiple Hashtag Search Tool.
I’m excited to announce our new Instagram multi-hashtag search tool. After posting our banned hashtag search a couple of weeks ago, I noticed that the page was receiving some search traffic for keywords like “search Instagram using multiple hashtags”. I thought this was a great idea, and couldn’t find any existing tools that allowed users to search Instagram that way, so we built a tool to let you search more than one hashtag!
Due to limitations of the current API, Instagram only allows users and app developers to search using one hashtag at a time, which isn’t incredibly useful if you’re looking for something specific, like using two hashtags to search for users posting about a particular topic in a certain location, or finding active users within a specific niche (like #cable #skiing or #dirt #biking). The multi-hashtag search tool could also be valuable to marketers and social community managers looking to target and interact with users posing to specific groups of hashtags.
The current solution for querying the Instagram API for photos containing multiple hashtags isn’t perfect, but we believe it’s the best solution currently out there. We’ve built our tool to learn about the types of hashtags people are commonly searching, and make those combinations available quickly. We aren’t quite sure exactly how people will use the tool yet, so we can’t be sure that every search will return a full page of results, but it should get smarter over time, and the overall quality and speed of results should improve as more people use the tool. So get searching!
