is it redundant to have same words in both categories and tags?

  1. Should I enter the same words under "tags" as I do under "categories?" I know I enter "Mammals" under categories, and "Woodchuck" under tags (tags are more specific, I think) but my question is, do I also enter "Mammals" under tags, or is that redundant?

    The blog I need help with is naturallycuriouswithmaryholland.wordpress.com.

  2. If you do that, search engines will likely decide you are a spammer, and that will have a negative impact on your blog.

    Since categories and tags function exactly the same way at WordPress.com, there is never any reason to duplicate them.

  3. Thank you so much, raincoaster!
