First of all; when I write my post I usually use 40-60 tags. Let´s say I wrote a poem about karma. My tags can look like this: magdalena wiklund (my name), poem, poems, writing, writer, write, author, religion, buddha, buddhism, karma, eternity, wheel, life, prose, project, 365, project 365, read, publish, published, book, books, poetry, poesy, confession, confessions, and so on....
But I read somewhere that a good amount of tags for each post should be around 10. Therefor I nope have some questions.
1. Why should I limit the amount of tags?
I thought that the more tags I have the more readers I will get. People search using different tags. I can have a poem about karma. The tags I can use can be any of them I wrote above. If I write them all both people who searches for the word buddha and poem will find my post. Isn't that right?
2. How do I limit the amount of tags? If I really should...
For the moment I have about 40-60 tags for each post. Mostly I write a word in both singular and plural. Poem, poems, poetry, prose. I cannot know what people write when they search for blogs. So how do I know what tags to use and which ones not to use?
The blog I need help with is swedishmaggie.wordpress.com.
