HashtagsforLikes vs AiGrow – What’s a Better Hashtag Analysis Tool?

HashtagsforLikes is a tool you can use to analyse Instagram hashtags to find the best possible hashtags for your specific Instagram posts.

It’s right in our neighborhood of Instagram marketing, so we decided to put it to the test against our own hashtag research tool.

Here’s what we’ll cover:

  • Setup
  • Connecting Instagram account(s)
  • Features
  • Maintenance and Support
  • Price
  • Conclusion

Let’s jump into it!

Setup – HashtagsforLikes vs. AiGrow


Once on aigrow.me, click on “FREE TRIAL” in the top right corner of our homepage.

Or, to make things easier, click on the “FREE TRIAL” button in the top right corner of the page you’re currently reading.

Then just provide your name, email, and desired password.

That’s all. Congrats, You’re done!

With AiGrow, you don’t need verification via email or download. Moreover, AiGrow’s platform is available in five languages: English, Spanish, French, Arabic, and Persian.


You can use HashtagsforLikes to analyze hashtags on Instagram without creating an account. On the first page of HashtagsforLikes, just enter a hashtag and see the results.

However, if you need to use further features, you need to create an account.

In order to create an account, click on the “Get Started” button on the upper corner. Enter your email and then the platform will ask for a password. You won’t need to verify anything.

After adding a password on the next page, you are all done.

Connecting Instagram Accounts


When you are done with the setup, you then need to connect your IG account.

To connect your account, click on “Add Instagram Account” and simply enter your IG username and password. For some accounts, Instagram may send a 6-digit code that AiGrow will ask for.

When you are finished with the connecting step, you can see your account on the dashboard. With AiGrow, you also the ability to add multiple Instagram accounts.


Because HashtagsforLikes is only a hashtag analyzation platform and does not do anything to your account, you don’t need to provide your Instagram account credentials.

HashtagsforLikes shows you the hashtags and you then implement them in your posts. That’s all.



AiGrow users have access to multiple features of this platform.

This includes:

  • Hashtag Search Tool
  • Scheduling Posts and Stories
  • Engagement Groups
  • Auto DMs and Growth Engine (auto Likes, follows, unfollows, and comments
  • Desktop Inbox

Let’s talk about each one-by-one.

Hashtag Search Tool

When you schedule posts with AiGrow’s scheduler, you can search for keywords related to your Instagram account to find the most popular hashtags you should be using.

You can then select the hashtags you want and easily add them to your scheduled post.

Your hashtags will be posted as a comment when your scheduled post goes live on Instagram.

AiGrow’s Growth Engine

Have you ever heard of the Follow Unfollow, Follow for Follow, and Like for Like methods? AiGrow’s Growth Engine will automate all of these strategies for you. You are going to Like and Follow other people. In response, they will visit your profile and if they are interested, they may engage with you.

Instead of finding, Liking, Following and Unfollowing all these people by yourself, which is a tedious activity that can take a lot of time, AiGrow’s Growth engine will do it for you just by a few simple clicks. It will find users and engage with them while you are sitting back on your couch. Also, it will automatically unfollow those accounts that don’t engage with.

AiGrow’s Growth Engine provides you with multiple options. For example, you have the ability to choose the speed of activity or change the number of Likes, Follows, and Unfollows per day.

Note: AiGrow will not exceed the Instagram limit for Likes, Follow, and Unfollow. The maximum speed of this engine is the same as the limitation of the IG platform.

You just need to target prospective customers and followers. This targeting could be based on hashtags, locations, influencer accounts, or a list of usernames. The more hints you give AiGrow, the more specific will be the Likes and Comments.

After setting up your targeting options, simply hit “Start Growth”. AiGrow will start to run and continue until you tell it to stop, never overstepping the limits imposed by Instagram.

AiGrow’s Schedules your Posts and Stories

Scheduling your posts and Stories is no more difficult with AiGrow’s scheduler. To do so, on your dashboard click on the “Schedule Posts” tab. Then start uploading your content by dragging your images/videos. Insert a caption and set a time and date.

AiGrow also offers a tool for searching hashtags. Easily enter a hashtag and AiGrow will find the relevant hashtags and their popularity. Moreover, as you can add multiple accounts to your AiGrow’s dashboard scheduling a post on multiple pages seems easy for you.
