#FB now uses #Hashtags. What they do and how to use them properly.
Hashtags have become especially important for Small Businesses because if used properly they are another vehicle for costumers to find out what you offer. It has now been studied and determined that online users are forming “tribes” based on their interests and hobbies that can be broken down by their usage of particular Hashtags. This presents opportunities for businesses to find and be found in specialized niches.
How to use #hashtags
#no spaces between words =wrong #nospacesbetweenwords = correct
You can use as many as you like in most forums but limit them to only three in twitter.
Put a #hashtag in front of your company name. This way you can promote and check what others are social media-ing about you.
Try and be consistent in some parts of your #hashtags i.e if you are a plumber then keep #plumber in all of your posts followed by the next relevant #hashtag.
We do not recommend trying to use trending #hashtags to direct traffic to your site, if users find the material very off topic then it is only going to hurt your site.
