🤩 How to Get Your Post in the Instagram Top Posts Area
A lot of people dream of becoming popular on Instagram. This applies to both individual bloggers and entrepreneurs who want to promote their company or brand.
When you publish a new post, it’s seen only by 10-15% of your followers. If it is interesting enough and reaches a certain level of engagement (e. g., it has a lot of comments and saves), Instagram shows the publication to 10-15% more users. Now, if the post still attracts enough attention, Instagram shows it to all your subscribers. Finally, if the post is popular among all your subscribers, Instagram recommends it to people who are not already following you.
🤳In reality, there is no guaranteed way to get the post in the Intagram Top Posts, since nobody knows exactly how the Instagram ranking algorithm works. That said, we know what factors influence the chance to reach the very top of Instagram. 🔽 Let’s take a look at them:
• Not only the sheer number of likes but also a rate of getting them. For instance, a post that has collected 100 likes in 3 minutes will be ranked higher compared to a post, that gained 1000 likes in 3 days;
• The number of comments (which have played an important role lately);
• The number of saves. Share something useful, if you want your subscribers to save your posts;
• The number of followers;
• Hashtags and geotags. They will help new people find you;
• Profile ranking📈
