How To Get More Followers On Instagram

Before I get going with my content here, I want to quickly provide you with this Instagram Powertool BONUS (see blue button below). I would also recommend following popular Instagram accounts that are similar in content to your own. Now I know that you know that makes sense, but I'm sure you're also wondering how to find those popular accounts. Well click on the blue link below to read about how you get insider information to laser target what you're looking for on Instagram.

Learning how to find people on Instagram or even learning how to get more followers on Instagram freely isn’t a secret I assure you. There are good methods, well known methods.. typically your more manual methods with a little app assistance, pay for follower websites, hacks and other software designed to get the job done whether you want to do it legitimately or whether you want to risk your account through ill advised means.

From purely an "informational" standpoint, lets just say that I’m just being completely transparent about this as there are always methods to game the system and grow unnaturally on any social network.

Nevertheless, I'll be advising you on safe and more manual methods because that's the route that I choose personally for my own account, but I'll also mention what I wouldn't advise as well while we're on the subject and on this post.

With that said, let’s not place a dark cloud on Instagram. It’s a great place for bloggers, business owners and people in general. We all enjoy photography even if we don’t know anything about taking a good photo ourselves.

With that said, I will concede that it hasn’t always been that transparent when it comes to finding new people to follow beyond the suggestions that they make and the search function. Either of which didn’t always provide you with results that were relevant to what you may be focusing your account on. However, it can’t be dismissed that the reason for this may stem from the reality that where it once was in terms of it’s userbase is quite different from where it is now in terms of it’s rapid growth as depicted below in the graph when compared to the growth of Twitter.

How To Find People On Instagram

Considering the millions of people that use the photo based social network, one would hardly ague that searching and finding new people to follow should be... well pretty basic. Of the methods that I’m going to share with you are:

Internal Function & People Feature

The internal function for Instagram is pretty straightforward. If you’re using the application, you can simply navigate to the search function (it looks like a magnifying glass) at the bottom of the app. Once you tap that, the application takes you to another window where it gives you three options. Those options are to search by typing in a query (e.g. someone’s name, a hashtag (ex. #photo) or search by the people suggestions tab) that is also located in that window.

If you’re struggling to search for popular hashtags, here is a list of several that you can choose from:

I'm Popular Top Instagram Hahstags


#tbt, #Follow, #Cute, #Photooftheday, #Followme, #Tagsforlikes, #Summer, #Fun, #Friends, #Instadaily, #Likelike, #Fashion, #Food, #Swag, #All_shots, #Instago, #Instacool, #Instafollow, #Cool, #Funny, #Eyes, #Followback, #Nice, #Fitness, #Blue, #Day, #Iphonesia, #Black, #Christmas, #Makeup, #Dog, #Photo, #Onedirection, #New, #Model, #Instaphoto, #Goodmorning, #S4s, #In, #You, #Picstitch, #Perfect, #Likeback, #louistomilnson, #Yum, #Sister, #Nike, #Blessed, #With, #Breakfast, #Snow, #Truth, #Friday, #Adorable, #Bff, #Gym, #Haha, #fit, #Out, #Wedding, #Face, #Quote, #Cake, #Delicious, #Nyc, #Puppy, #Fresh, #Saturday, #Blonde, #Outfit, #Japan, #Friendship, #On, #Louis, #View, #Gay, #This, #Rain, #Car, #Sad, #Followers, #Chill, #Cold, #Miami, #sunshine, #weekend.

With hundreds of millions of blogs that are in the blogosphere today, as you can see from these popular hashtags there’s truly something for everyone where your content and interests can fit into the following(s) that you’re trying to build or just in aims of finding people that share the same interests that you do.


The next method is using Here what you’ll find is a web based portal that you have to authorize in order to be able to access your Instagram account. Once you’ve done that you’ll be able to see the activity on your feed and what others have been posting that are associated with you.  One of the options in the panel once you’re logged in is to be able to search. This can be done with a keyword, a hashtag or with someone’s name. The easiest way to make use of this function is to just search by a keyword or a hashtag. Entering any hashtag will yield a number of results on the right hand side of the page. You will see a thumbnail image of the person for that profile and in most cases a title that describes what they are most likely interested in. From there, just click on who you want to see and you can follow them from there. So in my case, since I’m focused on blogging, I would enter a hashtag such as #blog and that yields over 4 million results and I would peruse the listings from there.


The very next and last method that I will mention is called Instapic. You should be a Windows 8 user to get this from their app store. It’s a free application and once you have downloaded this, otherwise known as a “client app for Instagram”, just sign in with your Instagram account. Once you’re logged in, you get the same options as you would get with the app on your phone. On the left side of the screen in the navigation pane, you’ll see a magnifying glass that will allow you to search. Click on that and then click on the smaller magnifying glass in the upper right hand corner of the window. I know that does seem a little quirky and unnecessary to me to have to click two things before you can actually perform the search, but that’s the only way it can be done in Instapic. Once you’ve done that you can search by keyword, hashtag or by name. What I like about this application is that it gives you the ability to follow them right away without having to navigate to that individuals profile page. I haven’t had any problems with this application and it is by all accounts very legitimate, updated and supported by Instagram. Amidst the host of applications that are third party to Instagram, this is one I trust in particular hence my reason for mentioning in this post.

Found It Finding Followers And People On Instagram


Now that I have provided you with options that will grow your Instagram, albeit, not the fastest methods, but will likely keep your accounts safe, nothing implied however, lets chat for just a minute about the realities of a couple of unrecommended methods.

If you are solely focused on buying followers, yes, you can pay to get Instagram accounts. A simple Google search for paid Instagram accounts will yield results that will give you several options, however, such methods are not meant for your main account or an account that you care about. If you're looking to basically test out a service provider that will furnish you with loads of followers to see how Instagram will respond once the service has been provided on your account that is an option for you but again not something that I recommend, but ultimately it is your choice. Mention of buying followers again are communicated here as information and not as any form of recommendation.

The other option that I will mention is going to Youtube and performing a search for get Instagram followers. You will find videos where you can download apps that focus on a coin system. This system involves setting up parasite or throwaway accounts to get coins that can be used in exchange for follows / followers. This builds up accounts very quickly but you have no way to filter who is on your account and again this will create a red flag on your account because of the rapid growth which will lead to premature closure/banning of that account by Instagram. Again this is communicated as information only and not any form of recommendation.

I recommend slower and safe methods to build your Instagram account to get more followers and to find people as well as I've mentioned in this post.. all of which can be done freely and do build up your presence on Instagram over time. However the goals of your account may differ from someone else. So with that said, you have both my recommendations and options that I do not recommend as well. I hope you've found this post informational, helpful and insightful.

Accidental Introduction of Facebook Slingshot | The Snapchat Competitor

So while Facebook ummmm "accidentally" introduced Slingshot today, this is the first major competitor to Snapchat. During it's "brief" debut in the app store, details suggest that unfortunately Slingshot is only available in a few territories right now and not currently available in the US. However, as you can imagine, Facebook undoubtedly upon the full release which is expected to be soon has plans to open this to the US audience.

Facebook slingshot - the Snapchat competitor.


Now whether you have a blog or website or are simply an entrepreneur focused on marketing, the "seemingly" easy ways to take advantage of this kind of platform are in methods described below in the following:

1. Use coupons ! Make the user take a photo of something related to your product(s) to earn your coupon. Step 2 of this would be to send the coupon to the user via Sling or Snapchat. An onsite application of this example would probably work best, but maybe you can think of another creative way to make this work.. I'd love to hear your ideas on this.

2. Announce that you're going to be on Facebook Sling or Snapchat. State that your users have to download the app in order to view your exclusive Facebook Sling or Snapchat promotion.

3. Come up with challenges where users have to write down captchas, numbers or sequences of letters in order for entries into contests, exclusive deals or competitions.

4. Take different shots of areas of your website and send your users on a treasure hunt for a special prize for the winners.

This kind of thing can create fun on your blog and increase user engagement between you and your audience.

Now of course, we'll have to see what Slingshot looks like in it's "FINAL" form when the official release comes out but again these are just ideas to consider in the meantime :)

Duckduckgo Private Search Engine iOS 8 - A Hybrid Search Engine

Duckduckgo private search engine


We focus so much on Google and quite frankly, you'd be silly not to right ? Anyone who's anyone knows that getting seen online means playing nice with Google. This has to be a big part of your ranking strategy. Whether your website is traditional or focused more on the mobile crowd or a combination of both, Google is important in your overall bottom line.

Up until recently, Google has been the exclusive search engine for mobile. Duckduckgo is a new up and coming search engine that will be available to users on the Apple iPhone through iOS8. You might say, well how is this a relevant topic here. It's relevant because mobile search is right on par with non mobile search which means there's a ton of eyes potentially on your website on mobile if you are found on a search engine using a mobile device. Since millions of people already own iPhones and are searching for content daily using that device, you can be sure that a large segment will if nothing else give the new Duckduckgo search engine alternative a try.

So how do you get found in Duckduckgo ? The best advice I can give is to do the same things you would do to get into any other search engine. Best practices still apply even if this is a new search engine.

1. Make sure you link to and get links back from websites that are, "high quality", "high trust" and "relevant".

2. Make sure your website is "mobile friendly" and that it loads quickly. I've listed 10 exciting mobile friendly options here: Embrace Mobile Space

It still remains to be seen what the future holds for Duckduckgo and mobile, but now is a great time to prepare for the release of iOS8 and the introduction of this new hybrid search engine.

Pinterest New Guided Search - Mobile SEO Opportunity

Is this truly a mobile SEO opportunity ? It's hard to tell, but since there has never been a way to actually search pins on Pinterest, unless you're familiar with using search engine operators. For the most part, the average user is not familiar with that method so you're stuck just wandering and browsing their staggering amount of pins without anything to help you pinpoint what you're seeking. It reminds me of Stumbleupon in it's early days.

Needless to say that with the introduction of any new search technology or tool creates a unique opportunity for anyone doing SEO trying to optimize their site or content. Considering that over 70% of Pinterest traffic comes from "mobile devices" this is huge !

Pinterest guided search


I think this is a great time for anyone that has posted on Pinterest to examine their pins and consider 2 basic things that come to mind right away for me: 

I. Is this a title that accurately describes my pins (think relevant keywords).

II. Anywhere you can add content to your pins, again think relevant keywords

By no means am I promoting keyword stuffing or anything of the like, but focusing on relevant keywords make it easier for any search tool to know what your content truly is about. The easier it is to find your content, the easier traffic and revenue generation becomes.

Yahoo Mobile Search Engine Idea

Interestingly enough Apple and Google aren't BFF's, so all things considered, Apple might be open to taking a semi serious look at Yahoo. While Yahoo really doesn't do much in the way of search since the Yahoo Bing alliance took place and isn't allowed quite frankly due to the nature of their deal, they are however able to look into search within apps as there is no effective way to do it at the moment. Interesting concept ?? You bet it is and I'm intrigued about what could be coming in the future with respect to a possible mobile or app search engine so to speak.
