Top 100 LinkedIn Hashtags

To kickstart the year on LinkedIn, I have researched and updated my list of the global Top 100 LinkedIn Hashtags as of 11 January 2021.  Using the right hashtags in the right way is an essential component of successful LinkedIn content marketing. Using the wrong ones in the wrong way will damage reach and search.

There is not a lot of change in the Top 100 LinkedIn rankings just a few movements up and down.  These hashtags are very powerful and need to be reviewed for inclusion in all content.

Knowing how to use hashtags well along with the best ones to use and the variables that hashtags present is critical to maximise visibility, search and distribution.

And remember, no more than circa 8 hashtags max per post.  Though I recommend 5 is optimal as it is a laser focus way to ensure you pitch and promote your content topic with clarity.
