Trending Hashtags

December 10, 2022

The Trending tab shows and lets you filter trending hashtags across different categories/niches/topics (like Animals, Cars, Sports, etc.) and also across different social networks like TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

How do we decide which hashtags are trending?

Every time a group of hashtags is generated in the app, that group of hashtags will be public. This means, other users can find it, search for it, copy it, and even favorite it. We analyze these metrics to build the trending charts. The main metric we look at to build these charts are ‘Copies’—a copy means someone tapped that group of hashtags and copied it once. So if you see 67 copies, that means 67 people copied that group of hashtags.

Now let's talk about what's inside the Trending tab.

We'll also explain how to change social media and categories so you can filter Trending hashtags for various topics and social platforms.

Towards the top, you’ll see four different segments - ‘Trending’, ‘Top’, ‘New’, and ‘Recent’. These are different ways of ranking the hashtag groups that consider various factors. Here’s what they each mean:

‘Trending’ - hashtags from the past week that have been copied the most

‘Top’ - hashtags from all time that have been copied the most

‘New’ - the newest hashtags that have been created in the app by other users

‘Recent’ - the most recently copied groups of hashtags in the app

Tap the yellow button with three horizontal bars to the right side of the search box.

This is meant for configuration. Next, apply one or all of the filters and search trending hashtags by:

1. Social Network - Tap this to choose social media and view Trending hashtagss for different social networks.

2. Category - you can tap the ‘All Categories’ button at the top and see Trending hashtag groups for different categories. There are dozens of categories to go through including Wedding, Theater, Style, Science, and many more.

Always tap Apply Filters to save your choice.

Trending is a useful way to explore more hashtag ideas. Lots of times, other people have already created similar groups of hashtags. Looking through trending is one way to find powerful groups of hashtags that other users have created. That, plus this can save you time and is sometimes the best way to find groups of hashtags.
