Categories and tags both are significant and must be comprehended well. Word press takes into account both tags and categories in detail within its Codex. The Codex might be difficult to understand for people who are not familiar much with website technology. This article will explain the importance of word press tags and categories in a non-tech language.
Categories are basically a system of organization. Categories are just like cabinets for posts, where you put each of your post under a title or heading. You can also create sub-categories. For example, if you have articles and posts about photography, then the broad category would be” Photography” and sub-categories would include “basics of photography”, “photo editing software” and etc. you can also take categories in terms of a table of contents, where each category inform the reader about the topics you write and publish on your blog or website.’
Always create relevant categories
Create titles for categories appropriately and carefully organize them. Keep the post relevant to the title of category.
One category for all similar posts
Categories give posts a theme and title. Do not add similar posts into various different categories. Place all similar posts under one main category, and of course you can create sub-categories if you want to get more specific.
Keep the number of tags to a limit
Incorporating a number of tags in your posts will not be going to improve your SEO ranking. The idea is to add limited number of more specific tags that flow in a natural manner. More tags give impression of spam.
Re-use the tags
If you write articles and posts in the same category in which you have written before, use the same keywords that you used previously
WordPress tags (keywords) and categories hold a great significance as they are search driven and navigational tools. These tools allow the readers and users to find what they are looking for at your blog/website. If users do not find the information they are searching, they are likely to leave as there is no point left to stay at your page. Tags and categories not only enhances SEO for a blog or site but also make it more user friendly providing ease to the readers to read articles placed orderly under categories.
