Hi,

I`m wondering is hashtags becoming the next keyword for search engine. I started to think that keywords started to be less poplar and less effect compared to hashtags.

What you think?

For twitter and stuff yes. Not sure if it's ranked nicely on forums.

I'm not a fan of hashtags at all, since most people don't realize their actual purpose. But that's why I'm not on twitter, and try to avoid the hashtag abusers on facebook :) As for you question though, on social media sites, I think hashtags are definitely better than keywords. Maybe you feel keywords are less effective because everyone is getting better at using keywords?

Maybe, the content in my language is not easy to find keywords for or too much to find the right keyword for it.

Well, in my case, first political forum in Brazil,

I need to use hashtags. Why? Brazilian people enjoy some social networks and then, put dead before some time. But #hashtags is a easy thing to remember their purpose. Brazilian people loves hashtags. I dont, but... Its a Forum, not my little country.

I use #hashtags in the Prefix option in Threads (MyBB 1.8.x) to easily filter the subject.

Brazilian people don't know much about forums. It's a new thing here and i must make my Forum friendly for everyone.

I figured it out that keywords meant for websites and webmasters while hashtags can be used for big enterpriseed promotions in media advertising.

We webmasters can use hashtags to promote in social media like Facebook and twitter i don`t know if can work other way around with media advertising.
