FORTY ONE% Positioned Hashtags on the End of a Submit DATAEveryone Knows what hashtags are in 2017. They’re used continuously, specifically on the platforms Twitter and Instagram. But where should they pass?
Everyone Knows what hashtags are in 2017. They’re used repeatedly, in particular on the systems Twitter and Instagram. But the place should they cross? Do you like to show current words within the post into hashtags, or upload them to the end? Does it make a distinction whether you’re the use of Twitter or Instagram? Does it make a difference usually?
This ballot question sprouted from an internal debate our Executive Editor, Kelsey, And I were having:
I wish to tack them on the end (with the occasional exception). Having hashtags intermixed disrupts the waft of reading for me. Kelsey felt the other—that it appears to be like cleanser (and takes up less area) when you use present words within the text and switch them into hashtags. Here at SEJ we vary among the two.
So what do you do whilst you have a debate? visit the Twitterverse for answers.
Search Engine Magazine’s Twitter audience weighed in in an #SEJSurveySays ballot . And it was neck-and-neck! Up until a few hours before closing the choices “add them to the end” and “current phrases” have been tied.

In the top even though, FORTY ONE% choose adding hashtags to the top of a publish. Creating them from current phrases came in close at 38%. The Final 21% shared they had no desire on this hotly contested hashtag debate.
So, actually, it’s a win-win. ensure you’re following the most efficient practices of hashtag utilization and whether you add them jumbled together your post, or tack them at the end, you’re just right to head.
However we all realize hashtag spamming is an overly actual factor—and it may well result in very real hassle. Don’t overpower your publish with hashtags; keep them relevant; and be certain that you’re (always) publishing inventive, useful content material.
Don’t be the person that posts: “check out the #new #SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION #article I wrote! #Be Told all approximately #contentmarketing here.” and you’ll be well on the technique to making the # proud.
