Hashtags are useful for promotion on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Youtube,  but is there any benefit to using them when submitting to the stock agencies?

Interesting idea, is that allowed? I wonder about searches finding them in titles or keywords?

I'd also wonder if it is really worth the effort, I'm not going into studying that, just a personal lack of interest, but maybe someone else has some input?

I just did three searches for single words beer, wine, cat then added the #
The results are the same total images and the order of images is just slightly different almost un-noticable.

I'd expect that but I wonder about the larger WEB itself? Or do hashtags lead to the subject and not to stock photos. I'm not chasing this one.  ;D

Why should it make a difference? Hashtags, unless I am completely misunderstanding something, only serve a purpose within the platform they are used on and only if the platform supports hashtags.
Like, take Facebook for example or instagram. You make a post and you add a word with a hashtag. The hashtag becomes a clickable link where people can click on and then get shown all posts with the same hashtag. It's basically like a custom category.
How would adding a hashtag to a stock photo serve any purpose on the web? It's not like you click on a hashtag on Facebook and suddenly have a stock photo from a microstock agency shown up. Hashtags only work internal. And stock agencies don't support hashtags as such. Using a hasthag in keywords would only make sense if the picture actually showed a hashtag and a customer would search for that keyword.
