# – Hashtags

# – Hashtags are widely used today on social media and are excellent marketing tools. However, I often see it used in ways that will actually not do anything for the person posting it.

Namely not leaving a space in-between the hashtag-words. Some are just #this#that#and#everything#inbetween and the latter sequence would actually not do anything it is just a string of letters with some hashtags thrown in.

If your words are to be picked up in searches you need space before the hashtag i.e. #hashtag #hashtags . You will se the formatting changing when used correctly in most medias. So no space before the hashtag equals wasted work.

For more in-dept information of use of hashtags have a look at these blog posts from Hub Spot and Postplanner, both have lots of information for you.
