Hashtags should be related to the picture or content that you’re posting, random hashtags won’t do you any good. Using proper and popular hashtags will get you followers. They’ll make your pictures get a wider exposure to the audience which is in fact also looking for the same hashtags, if you use irrelevant hashtags it’s like giving a high-end gaming PC to a 2-year old kid who doesn’t need it ,no matter how good it is. Some of the popular hashtags are:

#instamood #photography #picoftheday #followforfollow #wanderlust #exploremore #tb #instagram #instalove #vsco #vscocam #naturelovers #likeforlike #f4f #instalike #bestoftheday
