Using hashtags can increase engagement by up to 200% according to Jeff Bullas.

Unfortunately, it’s not always so simple. For example, getting over zealous with your hashtag use can actually be a bad thing . While using one to two hashtags per tweet increased engagement, using three or more hashtags actually decreases engagement by around 17%.

We live in a generation of people who communicate through text speak and emojis. While it might seem silly, most new ideas are born because the need was great enough for it to thrive.

It’s common knowledge that tone is often lost through text. The combination of a colin, dash and parenthesis made a simple little smiley that let texters convey happiness at the end of a text.

Hashtags are yet another way for people to connect online. Whether over emotions, topics, events or locations, hashtags make it easy to start and join conversations all over the world.

Here are 5 tools that aim to simplify the pounds and pounds of information around hashtags:

Top 5 Hashtag Tools

Hashtag Tools - RiteTag

RiteTag gives you hashtag ideas based on a desired outcome, rather than just “trending”. While trending shows topics around which the masses are sending out, RiteTag analyzes based on what’s getting engagement: impressions and shares.

The RiteTag mobile app, browser extension and web app make integration with all the top social media management platforms pretty seamless.

Hashtag Tools - Hashtags.org

Hashtags.org is like the wikipedia of all things hashtag. Search for a word to learn everything about the hashtag, from the definition to a graph showing the estimated tweets using the hashtag per hour.

The tool shows Twitter accounts who tweet the specified hashtag most often which is perfect for tagging people in Twitter photos who often tweet around your topic.

Hashtag Tools - Twubs

Twubs is a super useful hashtag tool for creating and discovering conversations.

The most obvious features cater to integrating social media into live events through hashtags, with features and tools to moderate and display the conversation.

Twubs is also a great place to discover conversations already happening, to showcase your expertise and start connecting with other influencers.

Hashtag Tools - TagDef

TagDef is another hashtag discovery engine, adding the ability to add your own definition to a hashtag. If you’re trying to start a trend around your own branded hashtag, this is the tool for you.

Other useful features include related hashtags, new hashtags, popular hashtags, and all-time highs.

Hashtag Tools - Tagomatic iOS mobile app

Tag O’ Matic is a mobile app that lets you find related hashtags with a quick search. There are a bunch of similar apps, the most popular being Tags4Likes. I prefer Tag O’ Matic because as Tags4Likes recommendations seem more spammy, and include hashtags like #Like4Like and #TeamFollowback. While these might get you engagement, its quality is another story.
