There was a time when the lowly number (#) symbol was vaguely used and its presence was rather teeny-weeny unlike some of the other more dominating ones. People only used it may be in reference to numbers. But things have changed, like a Cinderella story overnight, for this once upon a time lesser-known symbol. It has indeed shot to fame with it being used or may be overused in today’s scenario. In the social world, it has ceased to be just a number sign anymore. It’s now a hashtag, something of utmost importance, something that has created waves like a style statement and is predominant everywhere!
Hashtags are basically words or phrases with a prefix “#’. You can find content related to specific topics by just using the hash symbol. Hashtags are related to core keywords and therefore play an important role in search engine optimization (SEO) of content as well as websites. Hashtags with the right keywords ensure long-term drive of relevant traffic to your website.
