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 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 is 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 ban can be unbanned, and they’re very often banned only for a short period of time. Perfect examples of hashtags from this group? #boho, #coffee or #beautyblogger. 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, hashtag #valentinesday has been banned. Since the banned hashtags change on a daily basis and the list is updated a few times a day, it is your responsibility to check the hashtags you want to use and do your safety-research before including them in a post. 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but there are two obstacles: it’s time-consuming, and you may choose the wrong, untrustworthy source and use the outdated list!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 choices right away.
Using banned hashtags can completely ruin your profile’s visibility – so it’s better to scan 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!
With the “banned hashtags” feature you can extremely easily scan all the hashtags you want to use, and check if they’re ban-free.
