Tag clouds truly that useful? Do you click on them?

    As a reader of other people’s blogs, I don’t use their tag clouds. I just don’t find it useful except a signal what the main scope of the blog MIGHT be. But that could be misleading also.

    Also when the cloud gets too jammed with different tag keywords, I scarcely find it useful at all –from the standpoint of clickability.

    As you can tell, I opted not to use a tag cloud. Especially on a company/business blog.

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



    Virtually nothing in a sidebar gets clicked on. I will look at a tag cloud to get a quick grasp of the main focus of the blog, but rarely click on any. Ads have conditioned people to ignore things in sidebars.
