Tags for searching

  1. Hi. I am new to wordpress but can't see anywhere one can add a list of search tags that may be useful to those who may find one's blog of interest. Is there a way to do this?
    Sorry to ask, but how otherwise are people able to find one's blog?

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

  2. Tags can be assigned to posts only not to pages and not to blogs.

  3. ok. Where?

  4. Please be aware that it's bloggers who choose exactly which Tags/Categories to assign to their individual post, not to their blogs posts. WordPress.com does not make those decisions. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories-vs-tags/

    The rule of thumb is to assign the least, not the most, combined number of only relevant categories and tags that accurately describe the post content.

    For tips on tagging see > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2013/03/15/quick-blog-post-tagging-tips/

    All reasons for non-appearance of posts on Topics pages can be found here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/#missing-posts

    The WordPress.com search engine indexes post, pages, and comments content (body text). Unless entered as text in those contents, blog name, post titles, and post/comment author names are not indexed. http://en.support.wordpress.com/wordpresscom-search/

    For Google searches use this format and replace "keyword" with whatever word you wish:
    keyword site:wordpress.com/

    Example search string
    Queen Victoria site:wordpress.com
    results > http://tinyurl.com/csaobsx

    * For Topics (Tags page) searches see http://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/

  5. Thx for the help. Finally I found where to add tags. I was looking for somewhere on the menu and one has to go into the Edit area and scroll down to the bootom to add tags.

    Thank you. Kind regards Eliza
