Preview app has an Instagram analytics section that tracks hashtags and hashtag groups. You can see your top performing hashtag groups (or hashtag sets as some call them).

You get to know which hashtag group generates the most likes, comments and engagement โ€“ based on your real data and activity on Instagram.

All you have to do is:

  1. Save your hashtag groups in Preview, or
  2. Use the pre-made hashtag groups

And let the app do the rest.

Keep scrolling, Iโ€™ll show you how it works and how you can see your top hashtag groups in Preview.

1. Save your hashtag groups in Preview app

The first thing you want to do is save your hashtag groups in the app.
Preview will track your groups every time you use them in your posts.

The cool thing about saving your hashtag groups in Preview is that you can automatically add them to your caption (without copying and pasting).

Pro tip: I recommend you start by saving 4 โ€“ 5 hashtag groups in the app. Itโ€™s a good start to get awesome hashtag analytics.

If you’re new to Preview, you’re probably wondering what’s going on? What you see above is the caption section when you schedule your Instagram posts. Preview helps you plan and design your feed before you post on Instagram. It has everything you need to manage your account. You can download it here.

Let’s go back to the hashtag groups.

2. Use the pre-made hashtag groups

Alternatively, you can also use the hashtag groups that are already saved inside of the app, in the โ€œHashtag Finderโ€.

The Hashtag Finder has a lot of pre-made hashtag groups for various categories or topics (like travel blogger, photographer, nature, creativity etcโ€ฆ).

Tap โ€œFindโ€.

Tap โ€œAdd Allโ€ to add a hashtag group to your post.

3. Go in the Hashtag analytics

Post on Instagram and use your hashtag groups.
Preview will be working for you in the background.

Go in your Instagram analytics section in Preview:

  • Tap the โ€œBarโ€ chart.
  • Scroll to the bottom: โ€œTop Hashtag Groupsโ€.

These are your top hashtag groups.

Preview runs its own algorithm to determine your top hashtags. The algorithm uses the likes, comments and engagement generated by each hashtag.


Tap โ€œSee Moreโ€ to see exactly which hashtag group you use the most, and which ones generate the most likes, comments and engagement.
