How to Configure and Customize The Hashtag Expert App

November 18, 2022

Hashtag Expert offers a bunch of controls for fine-tuning how your hashtags are generated, including platform-specific hashtag groups and hashtags personalized for your audience. While tweaking settings isn’t necessary, knowing the full set of tools available to you can help you gain an edge in your growth. We’re going to discuss everything step-by-step as you see it in the app.

To configure the app, you need to tap Advanced Settings on the Generate tab.

Below is a list of items you’ll see next and an explanation for each.

1. Add Your Facebook Account

Do you have an Instagram creator or business account? If that’s a yes, we highly recommend linking them with Hahstag Expert. This will help you get more personalized hashtag suggestions for your account.

There is no limit to how many creator/business accounts you can add; this means you can add as many as you want

This feature is not available for individual user accounts.

2. Choose Your Social Network

This is pretty self-explanatory. Tap to select the social network you want hashtags for. 

3. Optimized Mode

Optimized (beta) makes it easy for our app to suggest personalized hashtags that are most likely to drive audience and engagement for your posts on Instagram.

You need to connect your Instagram account to enable this feature.

4. Hashtag Per Group

Here you can set the number of hashtags you want to generate every time you search.

The maximum number of hashtags you can generate is 30. Tap Save when you’re done.

5. Language

As the name suggests, here you can choose which language you want your hashtags in. Tap the arrow button to browse from the list and set your preferred language.

6. Post Count Filter

This one's a bit interesting. With this functionality, you can generate hashtags based on post counts.

Tap the arrow next to Post Count Filter.

Now enter the minimum, maximum, or both. Hashtag Expert will collect data and generate results based on your filters.

7. Default Hashtags

Default hashtags are a way to add custom hashtags. Your custom hashtags can be campaign hashtags or brand hashtags, or anything else you want to promote on social media, or maybe to join a hashtag challenge.

Say you always wanted to include a brand hashtag like #hashtagexpert in every group that’s generated for you. 

All you need to do is go to Default Hashtags→ tap the arrow.

Next, tap Add Hashtag → write it in the search bar → tap the hashtag from the search list → tap Done → tap Add X Hashtag → tap the back arrow → tap Save.

From now on, every hashtag group you generate will contain this hashtag!‍

You can add more than one hashtag as well.

8. Blocked Hashtags

If you want to exclude specific hashtags from hashtag groups, you can add them here.

9. Copying Format

Preset the content copying format and forget all about it. Our app will follow your instructions and give you the hashtags in a ready-to-paste format. 

You can preview and add emojis, dots, spaces, and anything else you want your posts to contain before copying hashtags.

10. Copying Style

How would you like to arrange the hashtags? We provide several choices and styles like all uppercase, cliff, or mountain. 

Tap the arrow to go to the next screen.

Now select your style and save. We’ll remember your choice and generate hashtags in that format.

11. Spacer

Spacers are formatting patterns that can be signs or special characters like dots (.), hashtags (#), star (⭐), or heart (❤️). The spacers are added between two hashtags.

12. Include Base Hashtags

If you want our hashtag suggestions to have the base tags, swipe the button to the right. Now all your hashtag groups will include the base hashtag.

13. Attribution

Attribution lets you tag us on your posts. Swipe to the right to activate and add “via @hashtagexpert” at the end of copied hashtags.

We give all the power to you so you can completely take control of the app, choose how it works, and play around with configuration. We'll take care of the rest. If you're a beginner, complete the basic setup and leave it on auto-pilot. When you are comfortable running more tests, configuration should come in handy.
