How Many Hashtags Should You Use?

Once you have your specific day-of-the-week-hashtags, how many should you use?

Well, the research is split.

Sprout Social found that using between 2-5 hashtags is optimal, however, other studies have found that using all 30 is best.

So which is correct?

My advice is to test your own account and see what number of hashtags result in the highest level of engagement for you.
