How Important Are The 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 'cooking' you could have tags like cooking, recipes, cooking tips, etc.

When you use these tags over and over again and if you can click on any tag, and it will take you to a collection of all posts that have that particular tag in it. This can also be useful if you want to submit multiple posts to a place like digg, delicious, technorati etc.

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. 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.
