What to use when you post on Instagram

A few weeks ago I deleted my 40K+ Instagram account, why? One reason, well one main reason I had become obsessed with having a high number of followers that I didn’t care how real or fake they really were. I still had around a thousand accounts blocked because it was clear they were there to spam me, and that irritated me, however the rest of the fake followers didn’t bother me, until one day. I got rid of the account and started again, as of the 21st April, when I am writing this at 16:34 I have 330 followers and I follow 154 people. I don’t really do the whole for follow for a follow unless I actually like their accounts, however I tend to like a bunch of photos if they ask for a follow in the comment section, and I just either don’t reply the comment, or I say I just liked a bunch of things.

Since I started my new account I have blocked rather a lot of spam accounts. However I am still having a following that is growing every day. Now I will be honest, I have used bots, but it’s just to get started, I am not to be prepared to pay for anything because it is only Instagram. I recommend using Gramto for a month. It Is free for a month so you might as well make the most of it, what it does is follows, likes and comments for you, every half an hour or so, depending on the speed you set it. Personally the commenting function seems to have the best results, I have a rather generic comment which is something like ‘Super cool photo, keep doing an awesome job.’ Or something like that.  I can’t really remember it. Now as well as this I make sure I put something on my story every day, whether a photo or me or some random quote, it might seem pointless but gives you more of a chance to be notice.

Another thing in which I do, is tagging and hashtags, now this is something which can be a little annoying, but it managed to get me having over forty likes on my photo just a couple weeks in to having my accounts, with little or not work. I mean my account is growing with little or not work, to be quite honest. Now my account is mainly travel, but does have a music element to them, I think I will try harder to take nicer photos at music concerts, because I have seemed to done rather a poor job, up until now.

Moving back to hashtags, on my IPad I have a list of tags which are directly related to accounts which repost. Now I haven’t been reposted by any of these accounts, but each of the accounts that repost have hundreds of thousands of followers meaning this hashtags are checked by quite a lot of people, these are if you have a travel blog, this is what the post is going to be about, and maybe I’ll do something about bloggers and music in the future, but for now it is just travel. So here they are.

Now I have been given mixed advice when it comes to how many hashtags you should use, and it ranges from using all thirty, to only using between eleven and fifteen. My average hashtags though is actually 15.6 per post. I use this app called Command which rates a whole bunch of things, but I’ll come back to the app in a minute. My travel posts tend to have the full thirty hashtags, while everything else is a lot lower. However on a travel post, nearly all the time I use those tags, this is a recent addition to my feed and as soon as I started adding it to previous posts, I was gaining likes.

Now other tags that I’ll use depend on the city where the photo is placed, sometimes I strip them from a website, in this case a website called ‘The Hostel Girl’ actually where the first set of tags are from as well, so I owe a lot to her. Now the only tags I actually used where for Budapest, and the posts are actually in a queue at the moment and therefore have not been posted. I don’t use them all because some of them are a little too cluttered. Actually I just remembered I added them to my Barcelona posts, and started gaining a number of likes once they were on my post. Here are the ones are used for Barcelona

#IgersCatalunya #IgersBCNb #ClikCat #CatalunyaExperience  #Loves_Barcelona  #DescobreixCatalunya #CatalunyaGrafias  #Ig_Catalonia #IgersSpain  #Gf_Spain  #HuntgramSpain

Now most of the cities ones are really similar, but you change catalunya to say like London, or Paris or whatever else, and change Spain to say England, or France and so on. I personally think thirty is far too many hashtags, and do actually think my average is about right, however sometimes it is closer to thirty and some time it is a hell of a lot less. I would go to Hostel Girl, because I only picked some of the tags out I didn’t use them all.

Another thing which is kind of helpful especially if you are travel blogs, is tagging, all the first set of tags are connected to accounts. Now I don’t really have a list of people I tag, but I do have a number of go to’s, all which I found by simply typing in the city I was in followed by travel or repost or something along those lines, I feel like it is important to find your own travel Instagram’s to tag rather than giving you a list, because every person’s account is different.

This now ties in to the app ‘Command’ which I mentioned above. The app doesn’t really do much in terms of giving attention to your account attention however it does make you think about things that you need to change. This app basically rates your account in a number of things, I current have an A- from this app, which I am pleased to say, I know one of my lower marks is something which will improve over time, and the other one I didn’t even think about and I am now going to add it to what I need to do to make my account better.

Your account is rated on eleven things and you will revived a grade between A+ and F, not everything on the list you need to care about but I feel like it probably best to try and get an A+ in all of them. The categories are as followed and my little summary about my tips.

Followers Count

Well this is clear, it is how many followers you have, now I current have a low number, only three hundred or so and therefore have been given a D+ in this section.  This is the main section and the app will give you a little tip once clicking on the grade, telling you that the rest of the sections will tell you how to gain more followers, and I sort of agree, mainly not solely but with a combination of using Gramto, tagging accounts, using hashtags for accounts which then repost, and liking, commenting and following other accounts, and staying active will help increase this grade in no time.

Ratio

This is the amount of accounts following you, compared to how many you followed. Mine is currently 2.1 : 1 which basically means for every two accounts that follow me, I follow one. I have a C for this section, but my tip would be trying to keep the amount of accounts you follow user thousand, I have been known to block accounts which have less than twenty post, follow over a thousand people and have barely any followers. I know everyone has to start somewhere but when you are starting out I think it is important that you don’t follow that many accounts as many user will be put off your account if the ratio is too bad.

Engagement Rate

My engagement is at around 19.045% which is very high in the Instagram world, anything higher than ten percent is brilliant. I have an A+ in this section. So what I should be aiming for at the moment is that I am getting thirty people to like or comment on every one of your posts, but if you use my tips above that shouldn’t be that hard to get. Say you have a thousand followers but you are still getting likes under hundred, check through the followers and make sure none of them are spam accounts, yes you lose followers but it makes your account look better in the long run. Spam accounts normally have only a few posts, often the same things, have low follow account, but follow a lot of people, sometimes they are private, which are a little harder to spot, which is where my over a thousand following rule came around. If your engagement is still not increasing try making sure you use some editing apps, and make them look a little more professional, I don’t use that many apps, my go to are YouCam Make Up, YouCam Perfect and then Photogrid. Command recommends MuseCam and SnapSeed but I have never used them, so don’t know. Following professional photographs is sometimes a good idea to get some inspo, and make reposting, and giving credit to their work is another way to get some likes and comments on your post.

Likes Engagement Rate

Like the section above you want this at amount 10%, mine is at around 17% so is high, also giving me a grade F, I will go into more detail below, but check that your likes are from real accounts as well as your followers, if everything is real then this should be at around ten percent, granted the bigger following account the less your engagement will be, it always seems to be this way. When I had 40K I was getting around five percent engagement rate.

Comments to Likes Ratio

Also have an A+ in this, I get about 0.104 comments for every 1 like, so you clearly don’t need that much comment compared to likes. You don’t want like a thousand likes and then no comments, because it probably means that those that liked your posts are robots, so again go through your likes and check how real the accounts are, you want real likers and real followers if you want a good account. I didn’t have it on my last account, which just meant that it was quite a lonely account, all about getting followers and not about anything else. It was vain and a stupid idea.

Post Frequency

I have an A+ in this as well, this app I am using gives a few tips and says if you can produce five high quality photos every day, then post five photos but equally don’t just post five times because you have five okay photos, make sure they are of good quality. I know not every photo on my account is of high quality, I often explain this in the caption and say that I like how it is framed or it is just a great moment that I wanted to share. I use this app called Buffer, which means that I can queue my posts up (Only nine at a time for the free version) which means it is easier to edit posts when I have time and then just queue up posts so that they are frequent. Personally I would say three times a day, eight hours apart is a good amount. That’s what I do, and it means that it can post while I sleep and I can wake and see if my hashtags are working, and if it’s not then I try something else on the next post.

Hashtags

I’ve spoken about this a lot and therefore I think this need to be short. I mentioned my tags per post and I actually have a B using this apps grading system, I am happy with that, I don’t think I need to clutter my posts with hashtags jut for the sake of an app, I get good interaction and that’s the important thing. I might try and get it a little higher, to twenty but any more seems a little pointless.

Location Tags

Tagging locations, especially when you are a travel blog is so so so important. At the time of writing this posts every one of my Instagram post had a location on them (I have a couple lined up which are taken at home which currently don’t have any location on because I know I will clutter up the location area, because I live in such a small area.) I have an a+ on this too, I would keep post at home untagged with location, but everything else I think it fine, and I feel like you should take full advantage of this option.

User Tags

I talked a bit about this a little up the page, I have about 1.962 tags per post, which leads me with a D- I am currently going through and tagging more, because I feel like this is actually a useful thing to do. If you are wearing a pair of shoes from Nike, tag them in, if you are watching Ed Sheeran, tag him in. Yes they are big companies, and most of the time it might not help at all, but some obscure brands might repost you, which means more followers in the future.

Captions

Because I use the free version of Buffer it means that I can’t put my hashtags in the first comment, id I watch the post get posted I often switch the tags to the first comments as quick as I can, otherwise I use leave it as so, this means my average caption score is 200.538 characters, this actually leads me with an A-, I will sort this out at some point, but for the comment I am to going to write long and lengthy pieces on my photos, It is something I recommend because people will more likely comment if you grab their emotions, however if you put the tags it brings your score up, if that’s all you care about.

Photo Orientation

I have an F for this and I only thought about it a couple of hours ago, because honestly it makes a lot of sense. You see most people square their Instagram post, that’s how it is set up, even if you take a portrait photo or a landscape photo most people edit it so that it is in a square. This is talking about portrait photos, once longer than they are wide. How on your profile it doesn’t mean much of a difference however in the timeline having more portrait photos can actually help. You see although on your profile it will only show a square. On the time like it shows the whole thing, which means that if it is a long photo it will take up more space, and appear larger, thus you actually might get more likes out of this. It is something that never crossed my mind, but I think it is something that really could make a different.

 

Now this is very long, and I am sorry for this, but I will try and do these sorts of things a lot more, and make them a lot shorter, I will talk about the apps I use in a little more detail but I hope this helps.

What Are Long Tail Keywords for Instagram?

A couple of days ago, I had an interview for a marketing consulting firm, and if it was paying I would have taken it in a heartbeat, at the moment I am still considering it, because london, unpaid for three months is not exactly the way I want to go, and then there is a matter of the law, and the fact this would be a grey area. Moving on, they were actually telling me what they do, and how important keywords are. For example say you are writing an article about WordPress, you should try and include the wordpress around half a dozen times, at least.  The issue with the word ‘worpress’ though is the fact it is known as a short tailored keyword, which means that the keyword is highly searched and that many people will be doing a similar things, this sort of marketing has actually corrupted certain words when it comes to googling them, and thus is brings up loads of articles about things which are not really relevant.

I am going to talk about long tail keywords, which are normally three of four words in a row over and over throughout an article, as you can tell that is not something I have yet to do in this article, but I am going to try it when talking about talking about ‘long tail keywords for instagram’ it’s not a particularly high searched thing but in the long term it might bring more traffic to this site. So what am I going to do when talking about long tail keywords for instagram, well those words are exactly what I am trying to describe, it’s using phases over and over again, I guess it’s sort of propaganda in order to get people who are searching  those things to find your site easier, because after all 75% of people don’t get past the first page on google, I mean if you want information it is normally going to be on the first page.

I haven’t used it enough yet so it shouldn’t be tricking the google yet, and let’s be honestly google is a bitch. For example if you type in the words Rosalyn Burgess in to google, granted it is not the most common name in the word I am normally the first thing you find. I deleted my old instagram, but to be fair ‘Rosalyn J Burgess’ would have been long tail keywords for instagram because I use to type that over everything, my facebook, my twitter, my tumblr, and all the other things. However in terms of images it is just Rosalyn Burgess, for me anyway I type that in and I appear fourteen types in the first three lines, most of those images I have actually deleted from my accounts, which showcases that a deleted photo is nor truly gone, also from the first three lines another four pictures I have posts either on my instagram, my old one or they have appeared on this blog. Showcases that if you keep typing the long tail keywords they will make you have some sort of impact, and you will be able to get on to that first page, which let’s be honest is what everyone wants to achieve. Now honestly I should have kept with using Rosie, because their is currently an artist of the same name, and I could have hijacked some of the searches, although they would have been small group of people it could have made me gain a little more attention, and that’s what I am experimented with this whole long tail keywords for instagram thing.

Now this is entitled long tail keywords for instagram and I haven’t actually talked about what hashtags I would use on instagram, over and over again, to get a little more of a boost. The thing is when you are in english you are told not to use the same words, or the same word combination but with this type of marketing it is actually the point of it. So what are the long tail keywords for instagram that I would be using. it depends on the subject, they should always be relevant, I just deleted my Instagram, just a few days ago and now have set up a music, blogging, travel one, currently it has a couple of photos of people I have seen live, and then a trip to barcelona I took. I have no idea if this will work, and I know you need to have each long tail keywords five times, but this is what I would use when talking about travel.

Naturally their are popular ones such as ‘photooftheday’ and ‘picoftheday’  or ‘mytravelsineurope’ and other ones like that. They are not as used as things such as Travel, Guide, Holiday, Sun and so one but they still get a lot of traffic and can be very difficult to actually get any real attention from, you will just gt a bunch of people spamming you. I do recommend using location, I live in a little tiny village and was on the most popular photos for around six months, I probably got maybe five liks form my area, but five extra likes is better than nothing. So what would I use if I was doing a travel post. Now I am have just uploaded a few barcelona pics, I actually took the hashtags away because it looks a little messy, I have a few comments on them, so won’t bother adding in the tags in the comment section, moving on.

The tags which I did use where the simple ones like, travel, barcelona, sun, holiday, and so on., but I also used stuff like #travellingthroughspain #travellingthroughbarelona #travelingthrougheurope, I also used #inspirationtravelpictures and other variations of that, as well as #exploretocreate and a few others however I set up my instagram account just a couple of days ago and one of my barcelona photos managed to get over 75 likes. Now as well as using long tail keywords for instagram I did like a hell of a lot of photos but I feel the combination of the two has actually made my instagram account gain some momentum, even in it’s short life. I always feel that liking and commenting is a lot of effort but it does get you a little following growin on the side, and even though you probably end up liking like 1000 pictures, and only twenty people will actually pay attention to you, it becomes easier as time goes by and before long the momentum takes a hold for itself.

LIFE IS DULL

Okay, my life isn’t that bad at the moment. I’ve just found myself living in my own world, like inside my head, which is a little strange and maybe i’m crazy.  I am just find myself thinking about ficial people that I am coming up in my head, but it’s just so hard to get it all down on paper, because I’m not the best writer. It’s like I’m not in the real world ,I’m living in a world that I’ve made up, and I know it’s not real but sometimes I wish it was because right there in my head everything is perfect, and everything is going my way, even if it’s not the easiest path in the world.

So it’s a feeling I’ve had for a while, and I just need to put it on paper and make myself feel better about myself, nobody is normal and I wanted to tell you that.

Where it all Began (Album) Review

 

One of the jobs I work at, you have the option of listening to music, which is nice and does actually help me get in to the rhythm. This isn’t really going to be a reviews it’s more like they help me work, and honestly it’s a little bit too pop for me, I cringe a lot at some of the love songs, but the beat is infections. I find myself tapping along, and mummering the words to myself.

Now this album is by a group called Dan & Shay, who are marked as country, and although the storytelling is down that road, the music is a lot more pop, but I do love my country pop. So, while looking at the tracklist, the ones which I can sing along to are probably my favourite ones, however that is most of them. I will make a couple of mentions, What You Do to Me, is probably the one I love listening to the most. Yes, it’s probably full of cliches, both love songs and that of country songs, with references to the butterflies, and the whole dad hating the guy his daughter is dating.  It’s just a feel good song that I love to listen to, and honestly that all I need.

Another song I love is probably Can’t Say No, which is focused on a relationship a little bit further down the road, rather than the first song which is about the first few days, and the love at first look feeling. While this is more about a couple, living together and how he would rather be wrapped up in the sheets, than be with the guys, because ultimately she could ask him to do anything, and he couldn’t say no.

There’s quite a few more that i like, but the one thing I would like to say about each song, is that although the storytelling is good, i don’t feel like we get a true ending from a lot of the songs, with the exception of 19 You + Me, which goes full circle, I have a love hate relationship with that song,  like I love the first half of the chorus but the rest of it, i think could be so much better, but it does have a ending, even if it’s a little bitter. I go prefer this albums as a whole, compared to the second one, because I feel like it’s more upbeat, and the songs are a easier to belt out of the top of your voice, although the lyrics and songwriting is better on the second album.

For those who want to listen to the album, you can download it for free with Amazon Prime, I don’t use spotify to have no idea if it is on there.

Keep Affordable Housing Affordable.

Happy Bank holiday Monday, Party Time.

Affordable Housing is only affordable for first time buyers. At the age of 22 I would love to be able to move out and buy a house, unfortunately working six days a week and saving every penny I can, it is still going to take a few years before I have enough for a deposit and I’m financially stable enough to at least pay for a flat. I’ve been considering on sending a letter to my local MP but I just haven’t had much time to put my thoughts down in words, so I thought I would put some of them down on here.

The average housing price where I live is £350,000, and the affordable housing in the area will probably be selling, first time around for under £100,000, when its eventually built.

The house I live in, my parents brought for £193,000, nearly twenty three years ago, if it was sold now it would go for around 700,000 (The house opposite mine recently sold for around £675,000 but ours is a little more historical and a little bigger. So be more, if I was to have a guess) If my house was to move just one mile down the road the price would almost double, my village doesn’t have any shops, the one next to us has around a dozen, which increases the price of house. My grandmother’s house is a similar price to ours, but has a much smaller garden and although a similar amount of bedrooms (three/four) It only has four other rooms (plus one of the bedrooms has a ensuite) The house she lived in for nearly thirty years now sells for around 1.2 million, the family that lived there had to sell two houses in order to buy it. So what’s the point of me complaining about how I live in a privilege area? Not much to be honest.

So this is me talking about affordable housing, okay so around sixty houses are being built near me, after having a little goggle the number 60,000 has jumped out at me when looking at affordable housing. So theses houses are, at first going to be sold for 60,000, not bad I could probably buy one if I had more than a year to save for one, unfortunately it probably gonna take me around four years to have enough where I would feel comfortable in buying a house and paying a mortgage. Moving on, now the average house price in my area is 350,000, so all a family has to do is live in that house for a little bit, then they can make nearly 300,000 profit, all because at that time they had the money, thus making once affordable houses, no longer affordable.

So what can we do? I personally feel that affordable houses should be first homes, help people get onto the ladder, and not be a way of making a profit. I think affordable houses need to be linked to inflation. Say the house is brought for 60,000 the following year (Using the current inflation rate of 3%) It should only be able to be sold for 61,800, this is thus making the affordable houses stay affordable, and not away to make money grabbing people even richer.

Now the probably with this, is I would have no idea how to monitor such a thing, so on people it seems like such a good idea but in reality people would be trying to find every loop hole they can. I think it needs to be a conversion though.

April, 1st

Today marks the first of april, and this year the first seems to be the most interesting of the month. Today is of course Easter Sunday, the day that, according to some book that Jesus came back to live, having been killed on the previous Friday. Now my dad is born on April first, and I don’t think he is too glad about sharing his birthday with Easter this year, my parents and brother are not really in to religion, i follow these sorts of holidays from a pagan point of view rather than from a protestant point of view, because by being pagan I can still be apart of the christian faith, (Though I never say I’m christian as I believe the mainstream version is corrupted) but at the same time not believe in god, because I follow the spiritual aspects of the religion. I follow the pagan religion because it means i can celebrate all theses holidays without being a hypocrite, no matter what people say Christmas is a christian holiday, easter is a christian holiday, other people who follow other religions can celebrate if they like, but they should not try and change such things, because they makes them god awful people, in my opinion, we don’t try and take your holidays don’t take ours.

Moving on, today also happens to be April Fools days, and I wrote this before any tricks had happened, last couple of years I have been a little disappointed on the tricks the internet have tried to pull, but let’s see how today goes, with easter also insight.

So other things that are to happen in this month, due to being in the UK I am just going to talk about the dates which happen in this country, I might mention a couple from other countries, probably as I may have celebrated them at some point in time.

To start with we have National Beer day on April, 6, now because this falls on a friday and I have work the next day I probably won’t be celebrating this, but frankly it is a great day to have, so as long as you are of legal age and not an alcoholic have fun drinking.

On a slightly different note, this month also has the Hillsborough Disaster Memorial Day, which is mainly happens in Liverpool, but with the victims of the families finally getting justice, I feel like the whole of the United Kingdom, will remember those who were lost in a tragic accident, which could have been easily prevented.

Moving on in this month England also celebrates St George, which also shares the date of Shakespeare’s birth and death day, who too many is one of the best writers to ever have lived. I can’t say I have ever really celebrated either day but I do take a moment to at least acknowledge such people, even if the former has a slightly fictional story.

As well as everything I have mentioned it also happens to be

  • International Guitar Month
  • Stress Awareness Month
  • Sexual Assault Awareness Month

and throughout the month there are so so days to celebrate the following

  1. Jazz
  2. Dance
  3. Veterinarians
  4. International Moment of Laughter
  5. Safety and Health at Work Day
  6. World Penguin
  7. Haiku Poetry
  8. Malaria Awareness Day

and many others, so have a good month and I hope the April showers are not too bad this year.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Review

To be fair I wasn’t going to move this over from my other blog because frankly I wanted to review things which weren’t really well known, but then again I thought it would be a waste not to move i over and frankly as you guys probably have notice I have a huge obsession with Harry Potter so I felt like this needs to be on here wheather it is popular or not.

As you know or you don’t, Harry Potter it was the first book series I wanted to read, you see I suffer from dyslexia and I also have his thing that I should try anything that I know I am going to fail at, enter this thing called reading. When I first got into the Harry Potter series my mum use to read them to me, she did this up to the fifth book. I also had the audio books and I use to follow the words. It takes me about thirty minutes to read the first Harry Potter because of the audio books having in away brainwashed me over the years and I can simply scan the books without really looking and I know the words.

The reason I am saying all this is because my dream is to be a film producer (the ones who cast and get all the funding for the film. My parents are both accountants and they always joke about how even though I am determined not to follow there route I still what a job where I have to deal with budgets) I didn’t watch the first or the seven film in the cinema no idea why I just know I didn’t. Harry Potter made me interested in the making of a film, the behind the scenes aspects. I’ve probably watched the special features as many times as the films them selves so to say the least I was really excited for an eighth Harry Potter book.

The good thing about this, is for people like me who struggle with reading having it in play format is perfect it makes it easier to read each word rather than having a blurry mess of words which the other Harry Potter books have caused. I have studied Drama in the past so I am use to this sort of format, my brother no so much. It annoyed him a little he is far more academic than I am, he actually enjoys reading and although he has done a bit of acting in the past, but he is not use to this format. I do agree this story lacked the detail that it needed, the reason Shakespeare works so well is because it is beautifully written and has plenty of detail. This script lacked it and due to a thin story it doesn’t come across as well. Then again I shouldn’t really compared one of the greatest writers to Harry Potter but then I can be a drama snob. Well I can be a snob full stop.

The next bit contains spoilers. There are parts of this story really well planned out, the friendship between Albus, and Scorpio is probably a better friendship than the original trio. Although I understand Ron and Hermione fighting all the time, that does tend to happen to people who are trying to remain friends but clearly like each other. Most of the time it was over being jealous of someone. That being said Harry and Ron’s friendship annoys me at two points, the first being Ron spends weeks hating Harry for thinking that he put his name in the goblet of fire, yet he believe Harry at once for Voldemort return and he walks away from Harry and Hermione in the last book. He also believes Harry is not the heir of Slytherin. Those three things I think are all related and well Ron does one, then he does the opposite, then he goes back again. If they were really best friends then I doubt it would be so all over the place. It might have been jealously though. See that was the redeeming quality of this book the bad points are long.

The whole concept of the time thing just seemed really pointless and also broke rules which JK Rowling had already set out. The Time Turner doesn’t change time because after all it has already happened. If that makes sense Harry even says that in the third book. So these two boys go back and change the past which has broken one of the main rules that were already set out. It’s really annoyed me and thus made the whole book more like a bad fan fiction. The whole Voldemort having a daughter just seemed cliché as fuck.

There were nice moments sure, but you have that even in the pile of crap of Fifty shades of grey (which let’s be honest is a book about stalking) the plot was weak and almost needed the detail which the books have, maybe just maybe it would have been decent then rather than wtf is happening. Anyway it’s poor in harry potter terms but better than some of the crap theses days so gets a 3/5

I originally gave this a two but I think that was just the incail shock about how bad it was frankly it is not bad, it is simply average in my opinon.
