#Slinging #The #Hashtags

Jun 02, 2013

 



June 2nd, 2013


#Slinging #the #HashtagsHash_DT33809017.jpgThe fine art of #hashtaging has become my obsession lately. In an effort to reach a broader audience for my video and medical thriller, I’ve scoured the net for #hashtags that define lists of interest to my target audiences. At best I’m providing a service by assisting those searching for good content, and at worse I’m like a malignant virus. There is a fine line, and my efforts probably fall somewhere in between.

 

I’ve been blown away by the remarkable number of related #hashtag lists to which I can post: medical, computer, technical, conference feeds, professions, education, student, corporate, finance, police, crime, legal, detective, film, TV, video, book, author, reader, electronic publishing, blogs, announcements, news, events, locations, and more! I try to verify that all #hashtags have at least some related content, but I once accidently #hashtaged onto a sports list, and earned a well-deserved WTF? tweet in return.

 

Using numerous online sites, I’m able to find specific #hashtags, and determine which ones are currently active. Many have location information, too, so I can target specific countries or cities worldwide. Back-checks on #hashtags give me feedback on how my tweets place in various lists, and allow me to monitor the traffic. Reading through the lists teaches me about the interests of my target audience, and allows me to harvest more #hashtags from the tweets.

 

I’m earning my degree in #hashtagology, and I’ll be #slinging #the #hashtags for a long time.
