Online Marketing: What is #Hashtag?

what is hashtagAre you confused about what is #hastag? Do you wonder what the purpose is and if you should be using it in your social media? Or even on your blog?

At first I was going to focus on #Twitter because for most of us this is where it first began. The idea behind the # symbol was that when people shared a common training, project, or event they would have a way to discover it.

The #hashtag allowed users of Twitter to find like minded people or be able to follow conversations around a certain topic or event.

Now we begin to see the #hashtag everywhere. It’s use to curate information all across the web. It allows the search engines to find relevant information based on the #hashtag that the user provides.

Let me share with you how the # has evolved and how you can use it to build your business.

      Great information! Hashtags are definitely helpful in building your business. How many hashtags do you recommend in a single blog?

      • Katrina

        For blogging I recommend using them with intent. Don’t over kill. For social media it was recommended that you use no more that 3 per post. Otherwise it is just clutter. Great question Lorii. Super excited about your upcoming teleconference on Relationships. Congratulations!
