Optimize your Instagram bio

By selecting the best bio format on Instagram, you can convey to search engines what your page is about. Instagram bio is the only text displayed on your profile, and through it, search engines can understand your page’s content.

In SEO terminology, an Instagram bio is considered as meta description. This one-liner description about your page or content appears under the page name on the first page of Google.

Just as using keywords in meta descriptions has a significant impact on a website’s SEO, using relevant keywords related to your page’s content in your Instagram bio can be influential in its display on Google. For example, using words like “photographer” for pages related to photography can have a positive impact.

In the bio section, you can use up to 150 characters. Since there’s no issue with using repetitive words, you can repeatedly use similar or repetitive words in this section.

Instagram Image Caption as Title Tag Label

Instagram image captions can have a significant impact similar to title tags in SEO. From an SEO perspective, your name and image caption act as title tags. In fact, your NAME on your Instagram profile is considered as the title tag. In web development and HTML coding, the title tag holds great importance, and its content carries more weight compared to other page text. If you’re familiar with the web space, you probably know about header tags like H1 and H2.

For this reason, it’s crucial to use title tags effectively on Instagram, as these tags, like Google, are also important for the Instagram algorithm. Captions on Instagram can include keywords, much like the content of a website. For instance, if the keyword related to your profile is ‘clothing store,’ using related words and the keyword itself in the caption can be effective.

Using hashtags in your caption

Using hashtags on Instagram has its own specific rules, and you can’t add as many hashtags as you want. The main goal should be to present yourself to Google search engine in the best possible way and try to make Google understand what your field of work and content is.

Instagram provides various tools for this purpose, including hashtags. There’s no fixed rule for using hashtags that applies to everyone. If you’re a beginner, you may need to use more hashtags, but the most important point about hashtagging is to use hashtags relevant to your content.

Using Alternative Text (Alt Text)

Using alternative text (alt text) on Instagram is a feature you may have seen before in the web space, and you can also use it on Instagram. If you’re familiar with the concept of Google SEO, you know that for each image, you can choose an alternative text that will be displayed to users if the image fails to load. This feature has been added to Instagram for years, but unfortunately, it’s not taken seriously, and most people don’t use it.

To add alternative text on Instagram, you don’t need to do anything complicated. Just follow these steps:

Linking to your Instagram page from your website

Individuals who have launched a website alongside their Instagram page have a greater opportunity to access Google results. For instance, consider a clothing store that is highly active on Instagram and has a significant number of followers. If this store establishes a website and establishes appropriate links, showcasing the connection between its Instagram page and website to Google, undoubtedly, upon searching the brand name, besides website pages, the Instagram page of this store will also be displayed in Google results.

As stated, there is still no precise algorithm for adding an Instagram page to Google results.
