Tags To Your Blog Only
This is a suggestion about tags and categories. Whenever I click on the tags or categories it is a WordPress tag.
Is there a way to look for all of my posts under the same tag just searching the blog and not all of WordPress? And if not, then as I said, it is my suggestion so that I don’t keep searching for my previous NFL posts.
My website is http://ssreporters.wordpress.com
Use categories if that’s what you want to be able to do.
Sorry, wrong answer. It should work that if you click on the tag or category list or cloud in the sidebar, that will take you to posts within your blog. Only if you click the tag/category listed under the post does it link to the global tag facility.
Oh okay so just add that widget? Alright thanks!
Categories, Category Cloud, and Tag Cloud Widgets will give you the local archive links.
Not categories, bubel. Only the category & tag clouds.
Yes, it works. I have always used the Category widget on my blog, and it has always linked locally. It’s only the ones on the post itself that link globally.
I didn’t mean the category widget. I meant the categories on the post. If you click on the categories on the post, it take you to the global pages.
Oh, yes. I was referring to the Categories Widget.
OK, to be clear: the category widget, the category cloud widget and the tag cloud widget are local. The categories and tags on posts are global.
Can you make it so that categories on posts are NOT global?
That’s the functionality that I would like.
As I understand it, there is a lot of Google juice associated with the global tag pages. But I know that having the tags & categories only be local has been requested a lot
It’s one of the most often requested things, but staff have said repeatedly they aren’t going to do that for blogs on WordPress.COM. They do work that way automatically on all independent installs of WordPress, so if that’s something you really need, look into that. But you’re going to drop off a cliff in terms of SEO. I’m serious.
what is SEO ?
but really how valuable is this traffic? its just like a crap load of useless people trampling thru, with only minority interested… it doesnt help me, but i guess it probably helps with the ad clicks and all that link to link to a cloud of cloudiness…. this sucks
If you don’t like it, leave. There are plenty of other blog options if you don’t like the free service that wordpress.com offers.
tgfop, the middle privacy option on Settings / Privacy (“block search engines”) will make all of your tag and category links point to your own blog instead of to the global tag lists.
Now that’s the first time I’ve heard that!
“If you don’t like it, leave” … what are you like 5 years old?
hopefully if i decide to purchase something from wp you wont be included, with this kind of “support”
tellyworth: thanks, but for example if i got a domain going, is that going to work the same?
… would i have to purchase “custom css” thing so i can edit the theme or whatever html has those setup?
