OK, so I am a Newbie, not only to WordPress but to the whole Blogging think in general. Sorry if what I am about to ask is old news, but I am not finding the answers anywhere, so I am throwing myself on the mercy of the Forum...
1) OF TAGS AND CATEGORIES:
I did some didgging and finnaly understand the difference between Tags and Categories. But in one FAQ post, it says (and I quote...er... paste...):
Is there any advantage to using tags or categories or both?
Not here at WordPress.com and not for any search engines, no.
So what good are they and why should I bother?
2) OF SEARCHES:
So if the tags and categories are of no help in a search, how will anyone outside of WordPress.com ever find my blog?
Thanks for any light you can shed.
Your fellow blogger,
