[resolved] How does tags flow through? (7 posts)

    Hi Bjorn,

    Good little plug-in. May be exactly what I am looking for.

    So, I understand that the tag is not displayed on the page, and that is fine. No problem whatsoever.

    Do you know if the tag is picked up by search engines. I know that WordPress advises Google, for instance, of new pages and posts, and I know that the tag for posts are picked up by Google, but I am not sure if the tag for pages will be picked up, as well.

    Do you know?

    Best,

    Hi Per,

    Thanks for the kind words. My plugin only allows you to tag pages in the WordPress backend (wp-admin). That's it. It doesn't do anything else. All the other things like displaying tags or using them from the frontend (website visitor side) is something your theme needs to worry about ;)

    Does this answer your question?

    Bjorn,

    You are welcome. Thanks for making the plugin available.

    Unfortunately you did not answer the question. Let me try again.

    I simply wanted to know if the tag information for pages is actually used by search engines (or, in effect, the tagging is only for internal use.)

    I want to tag pages for purposes of getting the pages indexed on search engines. Thus the question.

    Regards,

    Per

    Hi Per,

    Tags are added to the database. If you have tag archive page, the tagged posts & pages will be both shown in this archive. Tags will not be shown on a single page unless your theme does this. I hope this clarifies the working of the plugin better.

    Bjorn - love the plug-in. Thank you for the work. My question is will these tags get indexed by the default WP site search engine so that the pages they are associated with are returned as a search result? Looks like it isn't. It was the reason why I grabbed the plugin in the first place. Thanks again.

    Hi JoeLandolfi,

    Thanks for the kind words. The WordPress default search engine will not index any tags. So even the posts tagged with your tags will not be found using solely tags as search input. You may change this, a quick search, gave me this solution: http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/40321/how-to-make-tags-show-up-in-search-results I haven't tried it yet, but it looks solid. Please let me know if this solved it for you.

    All the best,

    grtz
