If you’ve ever wondered how to get on the Instagram explore page, you’re not alone! While it seems impossible, I recently discovered an easy 3 step strategy to get your posts on the explore page every time.
In this blog I cover 3 easy tips to follow to get your photos on the Instagram Explore page in 2020. Follow these tips and you’ll show up on the Instagram explore page (like I do!) every time you post a photo to Instagram.
1) Follow and engage with similar accounts in your niche
For this first tip, you’ll want to make sure you follow and engage with similar accounts. Make sure the majority of people you are following are in the same niche as you. For instance, if you focus mostly on fashion, make sure you are following mostly fashion bloggers. It’s okay to follow some accounts that aren’t fashion bloggers (for instance, home or travel accounts or even personal friends) but you’ll want to make sure that 80% of them are in the same industry as you.
Next, make sure you are engaging with these accounts. This will signal to Instagram that you are in this industry and this is what your content is about.
2) See what the explore page ranks you as
Before anything else, you’ll want to make sure what the explore page ranks you as. To do so, open the Instagram app and click the magnifying icon on the bottom right. This will bring up your explore page. The explore page shows different content for everyone, depending on what Instagram thinks they are interested in. Spend a few minutes and scroll down on the page. Are there other accounts (photos and videos) showing up that are in the same niche as you? If you answered no, then you definitely want to implement step 3. Even if you answered yes, following step 3 below will help increase your chances of showing up on Instagram’s explore page.
3) Engage with relevant explore page content
It’s important to make sure that you have relevant content displaying on your explore page, or even if you make the explore page, your content will not be effective.
To make sure that you land on the Instagram explore page, head to your explore page and engage with similar accounts that you see on the page. For instance, since my Instagram account is mostly all affordable fashion, I open pictures similar to mine in the explore feed and like them. Then, I’ll ignore the ones that aren’t relevant
