It started on Twitter and it continues to be a driving force there, with trending topics almost always beginning with #. Although it’s now been cited more times than some can count, the on Twitter suggests hashtags can’t be overstated.

A hashtag is a label for content. It helps others who are interested in a certain topic, quickly find content on that topic. A hashtag looks something like this: #MarathonBombings or #SmallBizQuote. Hashtags are used mostly on sites.

Using hashtags to categorize posts by keyword:

  • use the hashtag symbol # before a relevant keyword or phrase (no spaces) in their posts to categorize those posts and help them show more easily in a status. Search. 
  • Clicking on a hashtagged in any message shows you all other posts marked with that keyword.
  • Hashtags can occur anywhere in the post body — at the beginning, middle, or end.
  • Hashtagged that become very popular are often Trending Topics.

Using hashtags correctly:

  • If you post with a hashtag on a public account, anyone who does a search for that hashtag may find your post
  • Don’t #spam #with #hashtags. Don’t over-tag a post. (we recommend using no more than 2 hashtags per post.)
  • Use hashtags only on posts relevant to the topic.
