A word or phrase preceded by a hash sign (#) is called hashtag.
Nowadays, hashtags are used on every social media platform. Same case is on TikTok. Wise TikTokers are using TikTok hashtags and enjoy EXTRA exposure in the form of likes and followers increments.
When a person searches for a hashtag or clicks on any hashtag, all videos having the same hashtags appear in the description in descending order of likes i.e. video with the highest number of likes ranks on 1st position (excluding original video). Videos on the first page get more views and likes.
Alas! You may be featured on the first page but you hadn’t used that hashtag in your videos.
How To Find Trending Hashtags?
Difficulty for ranking on the first page is directly proportional to the number of videos using the same hashtag on TikTok.
Just go to the "Discover" section on TikTok and check trending hashtags with the number of views on each hashtag. More the number of views of a hashtag, more difficult to rank on that specific hashtag.
Tip: Always be an early creator. Regularly check the Discover section. When you see a new hashtag is added in the Discover section, try to make a video as early as possible in accordance with the theme of the hashtag.
How To Find Best Hashtags?
Anything big on Instagram is getting bigger on TikTok.
Everyone can’t rank on trending hashtags, so its always better to add other hashtags too in your videos. you may feel trouble finding good hashtags, so I have explained it in depth below.
1. Use Top Creator’s Hashtags

Tip: Don’t skip less popular hashtags. It's easy to rank on less popular hashtags and they bring fans too. You may be thinking that you should only use popular hashtags. But look on the dark side too, if your video gets buried on 999th spot for a big hashtag. It will not be discovered by 99% of viewers. On, the other hand, less popular hashtags had added 1000 followers to your friend.
