your filter is too restrictive. Their is a protection mechanism, that will cancel a search if no results are found after 40 pages. If your filter is causing all results over 40 pages to be ignored, it is too restrictive.

Probably you re searching HASHTAG RECENT. No recent posts will that those kind of metrics, look at HASHTAG POPULAR for popular posts with that tag, that at least have a chance to have those metrics (although there are only 9 TOP results possible)

You would need to use CUSTOM SEARCH to perform this search. Info on that here:
