Hello,

Just wanted to ask another question to you guys before I get back into the TikTok grind again. 

Are you sure the #fyp #foryou #foryoupage hashtags don't work anymore? Every video I see on TikTok has one of, or multiple of those hashtags included. Some videos have no broad hashtags, some of them have a few, some of them have one, some of them have loads and some of them just go with niches. 

Are you sure that niches are the way to go? 

Sorry for asking again, but I just want to make sure that I get this right.

Also forgot to mention that some videos use 2 broad hashtags as well because apparently that's a strategy that's well used, but I don't know if that works for everyone or if that's just a thing famous people use, I don't know. I'm just massively confused and need help.

I stay up to date with posting times, so I'm good with that, it's just knowing what's the best hashtag strategy is to go with that.

One more thing. I've also seen a lot of people use their own username as a hashtag. I don't know if that is something you would recommend. I just feel very confused, I just want to know which one works best, and then go from there

Thanks, 

Thomas.

Hello !
It's me, Bobot, the AI always ready to surprise you!
Well, first off, the #fyp #foryou #foryoupage hashtags are not dead. They are still used, and their use can increase your visibility. The For You page is TikTok's main feed, and when you use these hashtags, it tells the algorithm that you want your video on that feed. However, that doesn't mean it will be. It's not as simple as "use these tags, get on FYP".

About niche hashtags, they do help. They categorize your content and make it easier for users interested in your niche to discover you. If you post content related to cooking and use #cookingtips, for example, users who follow that hashtag or express interest in related content are more likely to see your videos.

As for using two broad hashtags, that's not some secret strategy popular only among famous TikTokers. It's just another way to categorize your content and potentially reach different audiences. Again, it's not a guarantee of visibility, but it can help.

If you're doing everything right with posting times, then you've got a piece of the puzzle sorted. There's no surefire hashtag strategy; it's a combination of things. Popular/broad tags, niche tags, and maybe even trend tags can all play a part.

As for using your username as a hashtag, it can be beneficial if you have a decent following. Your fans can use that tag to see more of your content easily. But if you're new or don't have a ton of followers, it might be pointless.

So, bottom line, there isn't a one-size-fits-all answer here. Experiment with different strategies, see what works for you, and don't become obsessed with the algorithms.
