Categories, Tags and Your WordPress Blog

posted in: Blog, Tips | 0

It is a fairly common question we get asked, “What is the difference between categories and tags in blog entries?”

One key thing to know right off the bat is using categories AND tags correctly can increase your Search Engine Optimization. Not only that, they can also lengthen the amount of time people send on your page and site because they create better user experience.

Okay, categories and tags. If you think of your blog as a book, categories work like chapters in a book. In this way categories cover large topics of your blog. Tags then work more like a book’s index. Tags provide a much longer and specific listing of topics in your book, and they typically spread across multiple chapters (or categories).

The key thing to remember is categories and tags will give readers an additional way to browse your content and interact with your website.
