The best tool to search for multiple hashtags on Instagram.

You're here because you've tried to do an Instagram search with multiple hashtags and realized you could only use one. Fortunately you've found us and you'll soon be extracting the Instagram posts that are totally relevant to you or your business.

The Instagram automation will first search for the first term of your input (either a hashtag or a location), then return the posts that match at with the other hashtags of your input.

For example, using Paris France and #vegan as input, you'll know who's talking about vegetables in the most beautiful city in the world!

To get your imagination going, here are some other examples:

  • #sponsored + #healthy: Healthy posts being sponsored on Instagram right now
  • #beach + #makeup: Make-up products that are beach-ready
  • San Francisco, California + #ootd: Who's wearing what in San Fran' today?

Tutorial ๐Ÿš€

2. Add this Instagram automation to your account.

3. Click on Configure me!

You'll now see the 3 configuration dots blinking. Click on them.

4. Specify the multiple hashtags couples or hashtag + location you're targeting

In the 1st configuration field, you have to add at least 2 hashtags (or 1 location and 1 hashtag). That way this automation will search for those terms on Instagram.

Hashtags and locations are differentiated by the presence of a # in front of the word. Enter either a hashtag beginning with # (example: #phantombuster) or a location (example: New York).

You can also enter a Google spreadsheet URL or a CSV with each line containing multiple hashtags or locations in a single cell, separated by '+' signs (ex: 'New York + #selfie'). Each line will be treated as a single multi-hashtag search.

5. Easy & safe authentication

This automation will connect to the website on your behalf. The safest and most efficient way for Phantombuster to authenticate as yourself is by using your session cookies.

To make that process as easy as possible you can use Phantombuster's browser extension. It's a 2-click installation.

If you're operating from another browser and/or want to do it manually, here is how to do it.

You're all set. Just click "launch" to get your automation started!

Set this Instagram automation on repeat

Once your automation's configuration is ready, you can schedule repetitive launches. This will allow you to avoid rate limits, scrape more data and get your automated workflows to spread over days, weeks, even months.

To do so, go to your dashboard and look for your automation's โ€œSettingsโ€ button.

Then, select a frequency:

And Save those new settings at the bottom of the page.


๐Ÿ‘ฎ Instagram limits:

  • Instagram limits the number of requests you can do per hour, per account. We've found that in general, after doing a search for 5000 posts, this automation will need to pause for at least 15min.
