How to follow Hashtag and Instagram user feed via RSS. Since Instagram itself doesn't allow you to get the RSS feed for a hashtag or user, you can use a third party service to get that RSS feed.

The easiest way to do this is to create a list of Instagram hashtags and usernames that you want to follow in your RSS reader. You can then use one of several third-party Instagram websites to create an RSS link.



Creare Instagram RSS: Hashtag e Feed

websta.me

offers the cleanest rendering of posts. The title of the RSS post is the username of the account while the caption will be included in the post itself and allows you to subscribe to hashtags and Instagram users.

  • You can create an RSS URL for an Instagram user using the following link format:  https://websta.me/rss/n/USERNAME
  • You can create an RSS URL for a hashtag using the following link format:  https://websta.me/rss/tag/HASHTAG

QueryFeed

Posts in your RSS feed are a little messy, but in addition to subscribing to hashtags and users, you can limit your search results geographically.

QueryFeed also sets itself apart by providing many more posts per RSS feed.

  • You can create an RSS URL for an Instagram user with the following link format:  https://queryfeed.net/instagram?q=USERNAME
  • You can create an RSS URL for a hashtag with the following link format:  https://queryfeed.net/instagram?q=%HASHTAG

FetchRSS

You can create 5 free RSS URLs per month using. Just paste the link to a page with hashtag results or the link to an Instagram profile to generate the RSS feed.

Once you have established the method of your choice, just copy the link to the feed into the RSS reader of your choice, as you would any other feed.



Conclusions

The downside to following Instagram's RSS feeds rather than following directly in the app is that you won't get immediate updates. When you use RSS you will receive ten or fewer recent posts and then you will have to wait for a while until the feed updates.
