Support » Everything else WordPress » Tags best practices
9 years, 5 months ago
I migrated my blog to WordPress around a month ago and have been really happy, I’m fairly new to web applications and blogging but its been a great exercise.
Today I have upgraded to 2.3 and like the addition of tags but want to get some advice on best practices, here’s a few questions:
Should I add tags to all my previous posts?
Whats the difference between catorgories and tags?
For your readers sake you might consider tagging old posts. Not mandatory though.
There’s a long story about tagging and categories. One difference is that Categories have hierarchy, Tags do not.
Please consider reading through some of the discussions on the wp-hackers email list:
Also this might shed some light:
Categories versus Tags – What’s the Difference and Which One?
Many thanks for the links MichaelH, these articles have made me pretty clear on the differences.
