Have you recently noticed a weird hashtag, i.e., #xyzbca, on many videos on your TikTok’s “For You” page? Did you also wonder what that hashtag #xyzbca means on TikTok, as I did some days before? With some research, I have actually found what the #xyzbca means on TikTok and why many people are using it, and I have explained it here.

It is some random alphabet placed together with the hope of getting views. It has been derived just like the frequently used term “xyzpdq,” meaning “examine your zipper pretty damn quick.”
What Are TikTok Hashtags?
TikTok hashtags are similar to that used on other apps such as Twitter or Instagram. They are combinations of meaningful or meaningless alphabets and numbers starting with a hashtag(#) sign. Using hashtags allows one to jump on certain trends or hop on challenges.
Some hashtags demand similar contents while some don’t. For example, #flowers or #handmade challenges users to post videos of flowers and handmade items, respectively, while #xyzbca or #fyp have no specific theme, and you can post anything with these hashtags.
Some popular hashtags on TikTok are #ForYouPage, #fyp, #xyzabc, #tiktokchallange, #duet, and many more.
Does Hashtags Matter On TikTok 2022?
Without a doubt, hashtags can eventually increase your videos’ discoverability and their views. You may land on many TikTok users’ “For you” page with the proper hashtag combination. In short, hashtags make your TikTok contents stand out and more visible among people.
Since TikTok started gaining users, hashtags have existed. Hashtags are equally important before and now. In 2022, TikTok has gained more fame and hence more users. With the increase in users, #fyp is the most used hashtag, with over 29 trillion views.
If you are a TikToker of 2022, I totally recommend using hashtags on TikTok videos. However, keep in mind that overdoing hashtag is also not much appealing. So instead, try using 3 to 5 hashtags in a post.
What Does #xyzbca Mean On TikTok?
If you are a TikTok freak, you might have noticed the hashtag #xyzbca everywhere. It is spilled everywhere and on everyone’s post. But have you ever wondered what that means and why people use it anyway?
The meaning of #xyzbca is nothing. It is some random alphabets placed together. However, some believe the hashtag #xyzbca is a short form of some unusual words that might have been derived just like a frequently used term xyzpdq, meaning “examine your zipper pretty damn quick.”
Some hashtags have a particular theme, but the videos using #xyzbca don’t have one. So, for example, one TikTok content with #xyzbca might be about the cat slipping from the couch, and the other can be about a girl partying with her friends. Though themes are not common, one thing common to all the videos with #xyzbca is many views.
Videos with #xyzbca have more than 2651.6B views to date, and other variants of these hashtags, which are #xyzabc and #xyzcba, have 27.5B and 205.3B to present.
Why Is Everyone Using #xyzbca On TikTok?
People suppose that TikTok’s algorithm calculates the total views of a certain hashtag, and if it’s working well, the algorithm boosts the video with the same hashtag more. So, in the hope of getting more views, people use #xyzbca, the hashtag which has no actual meaning.
People use this hashtag like any other to get others’ eyeballs on their videos. And the surprising fact is that the videos using #xyzbca are gaining more views than usual. It all started as an urban legend and now is a positive myth.
In simple words, to be more visible on TikTok, people use #xyzbca. It is similar to #fyp and #ForYouPage.
Does Using #xyzbca Help You Gain More Followers On TikTok?
TikTok hashtags are the actual thing. Of course, like any other application, TikTok supports hashtags, and you might have noticed some hashtags boost your TikTok posts. You might also notice the #xyzbca working like magic to some TikTokers.
However, I cannot say using #xyzbca every time helps you gain more followers on TikTok because if this were true, wouldn’t everyone be famous TikToker with only the use of this hashtag? Some people might have gotten more views on TikTok due to their content quality, and some might have gotten them because of their theme rather than from this hashtag. Some might have been lucky and got it straight through the hashtag.
The hashtag #xyzbca may be a positive myth but trying has no bad side, so why not give it a go? However, don’t totally depend on it to get views. The main secret of earning views is good and spicy content. The hashtag might fail, but if you create top-notch content, you will never fail to gain views.
