Dynamic Tag Links


Linking relevant words internally to your tags provide benefits both from a search engine optimization point of view as well as giving relevant context for users wanting to explore your site. When starting a new site, you might not have a lot of tags in your archive yet, and you don’t want to go through your old posts adding new relevant links each time you write a new article.

This WordPress shortcode adds a link to a specified tag, but -only if it exists-. Otherwise the text in the shortcode is shown just as usual. You can also specify several tags separated with semicolons, and let the plugin check if any of them exists.

[taglink tag=”tag1;tag2;…”]text[/taglink]

For instance:
[taglink tag=”css;web development;technology”]stylesheets[/taglink]

will output

<a href="">stylesheets</a> or 
<a href="">stylesheets</a> or 
<a href="">stylesheets</a> or

depending on which (if any) tag exists. If no tag is specified, the content (“stylesheets” above) is assumed as the tag.
