About Tags

  1. Sorry if this is a simple question with a simple answer, but I was wondering about tags.

    Do I use these for my own benefit to find my posts which have the same tags, or are these for the public and other WordPress users to find a blog like mine and others which have the same tag? Hope that makes sense lol

    Thank you in advance

    Categories and Tags are useful both to your and your readers and to others who are searching for blogs and posts assigned to specific topics/subjects. There is some good advice on how to use categories and tags effectively in this thread.

  3. Both.

    Tags and the tag widget are a handy way for visitors to your blog to find posts with the same topic or subject matter.
    A visitor can click on the tag beneath a post or in a sidebar widget to find other posts with the same tag.

    Tags also list a posts in the WordPress.com global tag system where others can find your blog.

    Tags also aid search engines like google by acting as a keyword (if your blog is set for search engines to index)
