Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday hope everyone is having a great week, I have a question for you. I have been using hashtags for a while in my pin description.

are hashtags for Pinterest pins still effective, should I still be using them, and if the answer is yes how many of them should I use in my pin description. Thank you so much for your help and all the best to you.

I have read most recently that Pinterest no longer encourages the use of hash tags, so I have not been using them.

I think they are effective as long as they are relevant. I have seen some that don’t really relate back to the pin…
But overall yes.
I keep all hashtags to 3 or 4 max, just me…but that is how many I skim to see if the article fits my desires…

Hi Norman,
I have been using hashtags as well in my pin description.
Not sure how many is acceptable, but I tend to only use 2-3 relevant ones.

They're good if focused to you audience. You can add up to 20 hashtags in the pins description.

Good morning my friend how are you? and thanks so much for your help. I usually add hashtags before each one of my keywords in the pin description.
