The Importance Of Tags

A simple, but sometimes overlooked way to promote your site is to use tags. Most blogs like blogger let you add tags to each of your posts. Tags are general terms that help describe your post. For instance, if you have a post all about photography you could have tags like photos, photography, pictures, tips, ect.

When you use these tags over and over again you can click on the tag, and it will bring up every post that had that particular tag in it. This can also be useful if you want to submit multiple posts to a place like digg, netscape and corank.

Plus, all kinds of other sites let you add tags to your submissions. Tags not only allow people and search engines to find your content easier, but they can also help you organize your site. I don't know how many times I have been looking for a certain post and had to click on a tag to even find it!

This is one of the basics, but it is very, very important if you are looking to drive more traffic to your site. So don't forget to add your tags to all your posts...

Sorry for the big delay in between posting... I have been quite busy with my other sites!
