Like many bloggers, I have been struggling with the algorithm changes and fluctuating engagement on my social posts, especially on Instagram. The hashtags that had been working for me previously were not longer connecting me to my audience, for whatever reason. I was thrilled to learn that Tailwind, which I was already using for Pinterest, offers an improved tool to help find the best hashtags for Instagram. The Hashtag Finder 2.0 is super easy to use.
What’s better about Tailwind’s Hashtag Finder 2.0?
- You get a fresh selection of hashtags for every post.
- Hashtag suggestions now appear and refresh as you type.
- You can quickly dismiss the hashtags that aren’t quite right and see new options. You can click shuffle (icon with two arrows) to get a fresh batch of hashtags.
- Hover over any hashtag to see how popular it is and quickly pick the best hashtags for you.
From the dashboard, select your Tailwind for Instagram profile, and then start a new draft. I uploaded an image, typed a caption, and immediately hashtags would pop up. They were color coded based on whether they were niche, good, best or competitive. That helps you choose the best hashtags possible for each post. It also counted the hashtags for you so you know when you hit 30. Once you have your hashtags, you can click next and schedule the post. I set a reminder to hit my phone, at which point I copied the caption and hashtags and downloaded the image I wanted to post. It was super easy to post and will help change up your Instagram hashtags.
You can also save lists of your hashtags for later so you don’t have to repeat the same process each time, unless you want to!
I already used Tailwind for Pinterest but I gave the Hashtag Finder 2.0 a try during the free trial. I plan to upgrade to the Pro now that I’ve tested this tool for weeks. Click my affiliate link to give the Hashtag Finder 2.0 a try! If you’re looking for something to help you simplify your Instagram posting process, this is the tool for you.

In addition, I want to share a tip on how to use Tailwind to optimize your content on Pinterest! One of the best tips to give old content or new posts a boost is to create fresh, new pins with images that haven’t been added to Pinterest yet! This includes images for new blog posts, pages and products, as well as new photos for older content. This helps Pinterest users engage with your content by saving or clicking on your pins. And of course you save time by batch scheduling those pins with Tailwind. Tailwind helps with its SmartGuide. SmartLoop and Tribes functionality can be purchased through PowerUps.
Get started with your trial, which is based on 100 scheduled Pins or 30 scheduled Instagram Posts. Tailwind for Instagram and Tailwind for Pinterest are two separate subscriptions.
