226 Social Media Hashtags for Book Authors

Hashtags for Book Authors
Inspired by a similar post, I have compiled a list of hashtags for book authors and ebook writers to use on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Instagram, and Pinterest.

And, yes, I’ve cheated in creating this list of hashtags because I’m actually featuring hashtags that book authors are currently using (rather than hypothetical hashtags they can or should use).

Hashtags (demarcated by a number sign or pound sign in front of a word, for example, #hashtag) are an easy way for people interested in a specific keyword topic to mark their tweets, pins, and posts so others can join in the conversation.

Most of the social networks use them, especially now that Facebook has started using hashtags. Here are a few examples of how the social networks use hashtags:

On Facebook, every #hashtag in use has its own URL, for example:https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/facebooktips (#facebooktips).

Twitter allows you to #Discover hashtags via searches, for example: https://twitter.com/search?q=%23facebook&src=hash (#facebook)

Pinterest supports hashtags but when you search on a hashtag such as #mywords, Pinterest features all pins with the characters mywords in the description.

With Google+, you can click on any hashtag in a post and see other posts that are using the same hashtag, for example: https://plus.google.com/s/%23blogging (#blogging).

Please note: Select a few hashtags that are right for you and your book. Don’t use all of the hashtags listed below. Use five to ten that have the most meaning for you and your potential audience.

Here are some of the key social media hashtags for book writers and ebook authors. These book author hashtags are listed in alphabetical order:

And, of course, use hashtags to highlight your keyword topics, such as #crafts, #food, #travel, #exotictravel, #parenting, #health, etc.

At some point in using hashtags, you might want to create your own hashtag so you and others can follow a specific topic. Facebook expert Mari Smith, for instance, has created a hashtag that she uses in every one of her Facebook posts: #facebookmari.

I could see book authors creating a hashtag out of their book title, something like #1001Ways. Or a hashtag around your website, something like #bookmarketingbestsellers or #infographicaday. Or a new hashtag around your topic, such as #bookmarketingtip, which I will be using more and more.

Start by getting use to adding hashtags in your social media pins, posts, shares, etc. Then start engaging in discussions with others using the same hashtag (or simply repin, share, or plusone posts with the same hashtag). Finally, create your own hashtag — but you must use it consistently to make the hashtag your own.

Note: This list of hashtags has been updated from the original 41 to over 220 hashtags. If you have more book or ebook #hashtags that you use, comment below. I’ll add them to the list. Thanks!

Learn to Say Thanks

Here’s one hashtag theme that more authors should use: #thanks or #thankyou or #thankful.Or #ThankfulThursdays. Or #ThankYouNoteFriday.
