Note: This article is for the new version of the Tailwind Instagram app. If you haven't yet downloaded the new app, get it here on iOS or Android!

Tailwind for Instagram's Hashtag Finder suggests the best hashtags for you to add to your grams as you craft each post. Using the right hashtags will help you reach more of the right people with each new post.

Hashtag Finder will pop up automatically once you tap to open the caption editor on one of your posts.

  • Just add your caption and/or a couple of hashtags that you think might be a good fit, and Tailwind will recommend other relevant and related hashtags.
  • The suggested hashtags are color coded to help you differentiate the “best” hashtags from “good,” “niche,” or highly “competitive” ones.

The best strategy is using a mix of the different colors to balance relevance and reach. Be wary of using too many “competitive” hashtags, as they tend to be very broad and often overused. For more information about the right number of hashtags to use, check out our Blog, "Find the Best Hashtags for Instagram".

Helpful Tip: Tap the Saved button in the lower right below the caption box to access your Saved hashtags! To learn more about Hashtag Lists, check out our Knowledge Base article, "Adding Saved Hashtags."
