Think of tags and categories (and their associated widgets) as free adverts for your post – on your blog and in the wider WordPress community – and make them work for you and your visitors.
Use tags and categories to:
- Help bloggers discover your post in The Reader
- Place sign posts on your blog so visitors can find other content that interests them while they’re there
- Organise your blog and link posts by subject matter
- Review what you’ve achieved so far and plan where you’re going
