tags not working

  1. Every once in a while this happens and I never know why! Seems that since this morning none of my tags are getting out into the global listings. It's a bit inconvenient because I just posted a new article submitted to my site and I'd like that person to get the attention he deserves.

    http://epages.wordpress.com/

    Could someone please check and see if the tags are working? And maybe offer some suggestions?

    Thanks...

  2. I have got te same problem, and it isn´t the frist time that this happennd in my blog. Please help whit this problem.

    my blog is http://mamarrachi.wordpress.com

    Sorry whith the errors, but my english is so bad.

  3. there is no exact publish rule from Wp, but you may have too many tags.
    cut the tags and categories to no more twelve or thirteen... this is a rule of thumb here.

  4. well, if I want to speak about differents questions and I want to refeer this questiomns in my tags, maube need more of twelve tags. I consider a discrimination act the censure of my tags, but the problem is thath now i cant use tags. WordPress can advise of this rules after censored the tags. I think.

  5. And in the orher ocassion to have got this problem, nothisg sayd me yhat the problem were this. Only repair the problem.

  6. dlager is correct; although there is no published rule...

    An inordinate amount of tags is a common characteristic of spam. If you have well over 12 tags and categories attributed to a single post, it will not appear in the global tag listings.

  7. well, but the themes whith y can speak may be mopre of twelve. If I want to refeer all of themes, why dont? Im a spammer?????? Oh, yes, I cant speak aboust things If his number is more of twelve. Its is a strange form to treat the members of the wordpress community, and I am disagree of this discriminatory politic. te blogs are a instrument to express ideas, things, with libewrty of expresion, but if the content are atented to the law, in this case, is licit the censure, but other maners no...

  8. We are not limiting your freedom by doing this. This is not censorship, as your blog is still available in every shape and form.

    Also - this has no effect on your relevancy in other search engines, such as Google.

  9. mamarrachi - If you can't see the diffrence between sensoring and practical technology.. too bad. And the abillity to categorise things simply is invaluable out there on the Big Bad Internet.
    By the way - it's a little odd that your username is linked to your yahoo account.
    And no one is calling you a spammer
    An inordinate amount of tags is a common characteristic of spam

  10. If it's due to the unwritten 12 rule, I guess the thing is, my site (and my posts) are somewhat holistic. So I'm not spamming by entering a lot of different categories. Each one relates to the other... different shades of the whole issue.

  11. Actually, I have three interelated blogs and none of them are working that well, tags-wise (I think I saw one blog featured somewhere). Is this just a bug? I hope so 'cos I have more stuff coming in fast and I want to get it out there as it should be...

    I just checked the policy and saw this:

    Is there a limit to the number of tags I can have?
    No.

    I certainly hope that I would at least be notified if someone hostile to my endeavors reported me as a spammer!

    Hopefully it's not that and just a bug...

  12. Here's the third site that is not working, tags wise...

    http://earthpages.wordpress.com/

  13. You will not be notified if staff decides you're a tag spammer, you will just be quietly dropped from the global pages.

    There is no limit to the number of tags you can have. There IS a limit to the number of tags you can use on a single post and still be given access to the global tag pages.

    There is also a bug going around that when you set a post to autopost, ie post at a later time, it does not show up in the global tag pages at the time. You have to go back in after it has been published and edit it. Staff have been notified about this error.

  14. raincoaster... Is this a written rule? Why isn't it on the 'tags and categories' page? I guess I'll have to contact support... just thought I'd try to resolve it here first...

  15. If we allowed unlimited tags then we would have useless tags pages. It would be a neverending competition to see who could tag the most to get their posts at the top. This would be a very bad thing. So we picked a number which we thought would be reasonable.
    To some, a couple of tags per post would be reasonable, to others 20 would not be enough. (There was a post I saw on a blog which had more tags than words in it). So no number would be good enough for everyone.

    Overtagging.
    Every day someone reports a blog for overtagging. When the blog is checked one of 2 things happens:
    - if other posts show that overtagging is common through the blog then a notice is set in the blog for the owner to get in touch. Sometimes they may not know how to use tags.
    - if the post is a one-off overtagging then nothing will be done. (There was a blog reported late last week which used every tag/term/word/phrase in their 4th July post.)

    If a blog really did overtag and just would not stop then removal from tags pages could happen but you'd really have to work at it for that to happen.

    Throwing lots of tags at every post will switch people off - just because you think a tag you use is related does not mean anyone else will.

    A Mature blog will not show in tags. If you are not sure if your blog is, either use the form in the right of the admin bar to send a report in - do a Report as Mature and just ask. Nothing happens automatically so using that form is fine. Or contact Support. We'll tell you if you are and if you are tell you why.

    But limiting the tags isn't a way to limit blogs or expression. It's a way to ensure that there is a level playing field for everyone.

  16. Thanks Mark, that's a very helpful reply.

    I sent a message to Support through the form explaining the situation from my perspective. You know, it's possible that I received a "get in touch" message in my dashboard (is that where it would appear?) and didn't know what it was--i.e. that it was specifically for me and not just another message for everyone. I certainly didn't click on it if I did receive such a message.

    So hopefully when my message comes up in the queue at Support they'll let me know what's up.
