    You don’t want to add “lots” of tags. What you want to do is to add ten or perhaps 12 tags that are relevant to the content of the post. If you add too many it has the effect of actually reducing your search engine “juice.” The term used by many to describe people who use too many tags is “tag spammer.”

    But yes, properly tagging your posts will help the search engines properly place your posts so that people can find them in the search engines, and also in the wordpress.com global tags pages. Many get a lot of visitors from the global tags pages.
