What are the types of banned hashtags?

Generally, there are two types of banned hashtags:

  • hashtags that have been banned permanently – which means they’re put out of action forever
  • hashtags with temporary ban – hashtags banned temporary are the hashtags contributing to the quick spread of a large amount of spam, or they can also be repeatedly reported by other users (it can be done with malice aforethought by someone from competitors as well)

🚨 #tits are one of the hashtags banned permanently – which means it will stay banned, no matter what:

Its hashtag page has been deleted, and you can’t overview its contents.

On the other hand, hashtags with temporary bans can be unbanned, and they’re often banned only for a short period.

They are being banned and unbanned all the time, and their status changes on and on.

On the ever-evolving blacklist, there are many hashtags you wouldn’t ever expect to be there: for example, for a very long time, the hashtag #valentinesday has been banned. 

👉🏻 Since the banned hashtags change daily and the list is updated a few times a day, you must check the hashtags you want to use and do your safety research before including them in a post (all the time!) 🚨

You can do it manually, but there are two obstacles: it’s time-consuming, and you may choose the wrong, untrustworthy source and use the outdated list 👎🏻

That’s why it’s much better to choose a faster and more effective way: our IQ Hashtags feature 💜

We have access to the most official and updated data, so our list of banned hashtags is always current and relevant 🔥

If you see that some of the hashtags of your choice are banned, you can throw them away and choose other ones instead – and scan your new decisions immediately.

🔴 Using banned hashtags can completely ruin your profile’s visibility – so it’s better to review the safety of your choices (as a quick check right before posting new content, as well as a scan of the posts from your past) and eliminate the bad ones!
