Bloggers and content writers alike should provide the audience/visitors reading their blog with Tags to help quickly identify the purpose of a written work. A tag is a bit of text that addresses the topic in a specific post and focuses on that category.

Usually, a tag is two to three words long and expresses critical things about the topic; similar to keywords. Tags help viewers find and determine relevance. It is good to incorporate tags on a blog when there are specific things to inform your audience on or multiple areas covered.

You can add tags to your blog by following these steps

  1. Navigate to your blog by logging into your website builder and then click Blog from the left-hand tool-bar.

Pro Tip: Achieving success blogging online is determined by how many people read and engage with the content of the blog. Blog Tags are essential because of the message behind the topic, especially when trying to relay that message to a new audience. With a strong tag structure, your blog will potentially encourage a viewer to read what you have to say more thoroughly. Most tags can be found within a blog; generally in a space designed for this; however, there is not ONE way to go about this.
